Install theme

Hi

I am a newbie BB owner and cannot figure out how to install a theme.  I downloaded it as a zip file, used BBFileScout to extract it to a folder on my media card and from there I don't know what to do.  I searched the posts and could not find anything quite to help me.  I would appreciate some advice.  Thanks in advance.

If you DL the theme to your computer, then after you have extracted the files to your computer (not your device memory card) then you have to instal via DM.  Here are the steps:

 

  1. Open DM
  2. Selelct Application Loader
  3. Select Add/Remove Application (Press start)
  4. Select Browse (It will then prompt you to look for your file - go to where you saved it on your computer)
  5. Select the alx file
  6. Select next and just follow the options along the bottom

You can not save themes to your media card and have them work on your BB, they must be saved directly to the device.  Once you instal via DM or OTA then the theme will appear in your themes under options.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Install theme

I'm going through the same thing. Please, do let me know if you might be able to resolve the issue.

 

I also have something that is a .jad file. There are converters from this format to the .alx but you still need the .cod. I'm stumped.
