Hello,

 

From a PC, you can install any OS package to a BB via this procedure:

 

Note that while written for "reload", it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. You can even use a different carriers OS package by simply inserting, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML. Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.

 

 

If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:

 


  • KB19915How to perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software

 

Good luck and let us know!

hello, your complain is specific to the default theme that is installed with OS6. Be aware that you can install other themes on your device, most are free.

 

for example a few dozen themes on AppWorld, and others here: http://forums.crackberry.com/f221/
