Theme Support for different models and some newbie questions

[ Edited ]

Hello, I'm new in BB theme creating and I need some help. I created a theme on Theme Builder 6 for Curve 9300, Layout type is Blackberry 6 and screen size for this model is 320x240. The problem is that I don't know what to write in description about supported models. I exported zip file and the devices.txt file only states 9300, and theme is for OS6. Do I need to know what other models are supported? Or do I have to create it again for other same screen size models? I'm really confused and I'm not  a BB user too. Also I'm  not sure what product icons and featured images should be, I assume they are similar type to those seen when looking trough the themes in App World. And the calendar icon still doesn't change in the simulator, I've read it's a Theme Builder bug.

Re: Theme Support for different models and some newbie questions

HI,

 

Any BB Model with the screen size of 320x240 and that runs on Blackberry  OS6, the theme will work. However, the theme will not work for a device with a screen size of 320x240 AND that runs on Blackberry OS5.

 

So you just need to do a bit of research on the screen sizes and device operating systems.

 

As for the priduct icon, it is simply the image of the 'App Icon'. The featured image is the image that will be displayed if your theme is featured on the app world. That is the only time the featured image is used.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Regards,

Flow
