I am tring to ediit my themes and I am reading:
"BlackBerry 101: The Basics of BlackBerry Themes" on Crackberry.com
and the person teaching says:
"First you will need to have the appropriate operating system (OS) for your device loaded on your PC. Once loaded, find the blackberry.alx file. It will generally be found here:"
How do I install the OS on my computer?
I took the disk that came with my BB Curve 8830 and installed that but I don't have the location they are talking about.
Any help would be great.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
The software on your CD is the Desktop Manager software.
This is the software you will use to backup, restore, upgrade, and synchronize your BB with.
If you have not loaded and run desktop software, I suggest you do that first. Especially
important would be to get a good backup of your system, before altering the device files.
The Device OS is the operating system that runs the Blackberry. You need to download it from
your carriers website. Make sure that you have the software for your EXACT device,
and is the CORRECT VERSION. On the BB go to options, about, the version will look like 4.x.x.xx.
Your carriers website can be found by Google. Search (vendor name) blackberry downloads.
Download the device OS to your PC and then run the file. It will extract itself to the correct
directories, provided you have correctly installed the desktop software.
Have a good time in class, make sure you attend Lecture 12 (How to reload a NUKED Blackberry!)
