Folks...Jibi's unavailable for a few days. He won't be back until the first of the week, easy.

If you'd like to edit the .alx yourself, all you have to do is remove all the vendor references in it. Just copy it to a new file (so you have a backup), and open it with Notepad.

Hope that helps.

Here you go folks...

Those sneaky guys at RIM decided to leave out one of the nicest themes there is available for the Blackberry 8700. The Zen theme, which is hidden by default is a fresh new concept which emphasizes the background instead of the icons or text menus. Instead of scrolling through icons like other themes, the theme places four icons on the right and a button which can be compared to the Windows Start button, which when you press it a menu list pops up with the rest of your applications.

There are a few bugs with the theme, which is probably why they didnít include it in the first place. The major bugs are that you canít select which programs are placed on the front and that the proper icons for 3rd party applications are not properly displayed. Regardless of the setbacks, this theme is a fresh prespective to the new Blackberry home interface and should be worth the download.

Just a word of caution, the Zen theme is not an easy download, itís more of a hack so users should backup their device before attempting.

Follow the following instructions to download and install the Zen Blackberry theme.


1. You will need to download and install OS 4.1.0.284. The best place would be to check if that version is available to download from your own carrier. If not, download the OS from Rogers here Ö

2. Install the program but do not yet launch the Desktop Manager.

3. Open up Blackberry.alx in the new folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8700-v4.1.0.284_P2.0.0.120

4. Search for the word Ďzení in Blackberry.alx. Then you should see the following line:

_vendorID="107|123|201|170|114|171|134|169|202">

5. You will need to put your device Vendor ID of your device on that line, to find out your Vendor ID just hit Alt+Cap+H. After editing the file, just save and close.

6. Connect your Blackberry to your computer and open up Desktop Manager. As soon as you open Desktop Manager it should ask you to update and install the new OS. Just follow the wizard and 20-30 minutes later you should have the new theme installed on your device.

so basically your saying, the later release .344 on my 8703e needs to be rolled back?

Pocket, i am led to believe this will work with the current OS we have on the 8703e just by modifying the .alx, without having to load an entire (older) OS. Not really older but different, even though on my 8700c i had every OS possible...

In my opinion, the best thing to do would be download the latest OS version offered by your carrier (or the latest by any 8703e carrier if you want bleeding-edge OS revisions ...). Don't worry to much about specific OS revision numbers so long as A) the OS properly supports your device B) it's recent enough that the Zen code is in there.

Modifying the .alx should do it.

it has to be there somewhere because when doing other os upgrades on my old 8700c, if you f***** up the install, your device was beat, but could reload the old os, or am i nuts??
