Re: Theme for multiple devices

unfortunately yes... The older version (plazmic) allowed multiple exports to similar models, but this one does not. You do not have to start from scratch with each model though. Create a master theme file and save it.   then for each model you are creating for make a new theme file. Go to file>Import and choose your master theme file. Only minor adjustments should need to be made to make it perfect.

Re: Theme for multiple devices

Actually you don't especially for the 5.0 OS version 89xx, 96xx and 9700 you can just make one, I prefer using the 9700 template

 

85xx and 9300 5.0 are compatible

Re: Theme for multiple devices

you can add them all together in a folder with subfolders for each device but I dont know how to do that lol. So I just do it one by one for each device.

Re: Theme for multiple devices

Little late on this but I have the same question.  So did you end up uploading all at once in a single file or one at a time?  Because I have themes for say the bold 9650, 9700, and 9780....they are all the same because of same screen reslutions.  I had theme builder export each one to its own .zip file for app world along with different ones of the same theme for other models, but when I go to upload can I zip like 9 other zips together (all the same theme but for different models) and upload the one file or do I have to make 9 submissions?

Re: Theme for multiple devices

package your folders into one folder

place your xml file in the parent folder

update to appworld, it will read your XML - then confirm that it is correct.

The basic answer is to think of it as resolution and OS.

 

All 480x360 device running the same OS will work.

 

The problem is when older OS for legacy devices are needed because some people will not know how to update and will use 4.6 on a 8900 till it dies.

 Sso all OS 5 device with 480x360 like 9700, 9650, 8900s can use the same theme.

likewise the 0S 5.0  with 320x240 like the 8500, 9300s can use the same theme.
