So I bought a BlackBerry Bold 9900 and noticed that you can download themes that change the icons and I wanted to start to make some because I have a friend that is an amazing graphic artist. I also know a photographer that could take pictures for wallpapers.
I know that the theme builder 6.0 doesnt work for the new OS7.
So in anticipation for RIM releasing TB 7.0 I am practicing and making icons, etc. so that once it is released I can upload some themes.
With that said, I was wondering why when I change the icon and re-save it, it will show up in the Theme Builder but it won't show up when I run the theme on the simulator.
For example, I click the icon, I go to edit, I edit it, save it, then right click it in Theme builder and press Reload. it shows up in Themebuilder. But when I run it on the simulator, it doesn't change.
Things I have tried:
I go into the theme builder and create a new theme. I have edited the default icons that came with the program just to see if they will in fact change. They won't.
I see that they have in fact changed in the theme builder, the original file as well, but then when I run the theme, the only that changes is the placement of the battery indictor, time etc that I move.
So then I downloaded an icon pack that has all of OS 6.1's default icons. I edit a few of them. Put them into theme builder and then they display there. But again, when I save the theme, and then simulate on the simulator, it fails to show up.
I've even tried to keep the entire directory intact and edit a few images just by simply adding color, then going to EDIT.. CHANGE IMAGES, and then navigating to the folder that is intact and has all icons that I have edited and haven't edited. They again, fail to show up.
I attached a photo to show what it's doing...
apparently one of the icons worked.... lol so random....

I've semi-fixed it, but if anyone can give me insight into why this could be happening I would appreciate it. Thanks!
Anyone know why only some of the icons change?!?! I'm managing to change about 50% - 60% of the icons and I am LITERALLY doing nothing different between the icons that are working, and the ones that aren't

Can you check what OS your simulator is running on?
