    Default PlayBook-like folders on my BOLD 9900?

    I have a Bold 9900 (T-Mobile) and the BB PlayBook. When you bundle apps on the PlayBook the file folder is transparent, meaning you can see smaller versions of the app logos within the folder from the home screen, but on my Bold you cannot see into the folder. I thought this was just how it was but then I saw Keven's post about how YouTube is not working and noticed that in the picture, the folders on the Bold are just like the folders on the PlayBook, which would be awesome! Does anyone know how to get these? Is it a theme maybe?

    There are a couple of themes which are using PB styled folders. They aren't actually dynamic folder icons however.

    Any theme with those folders also warn you that the contents inside are invisible...a custom OS7 theme does not allow the contents of the media, applications, games, etc folders to be seen, due to a problem with the theme builder.

    Jaydee, you are the themes specialist here, no doubt.
    But in this one case I feel I have to disagree with you.

    The contents inside the folders are invisible, if the theme customized part is the panels: you get rid of the panels (all, downloads, media etc.), and the icons are gone.
    If the customization does not go that deep, and only folder icons are changed, the contents of the folders are perfectly visible.
    Example: the MINI_Banner LIVE series by dcburke789 and Lucky45: the folders look like the OP wanted (not static of course, unlike the PB icons), and inside each folder you have the contents
    I am attaching the screenshots of the all tabs, with 'instant messaging' highlighted (or highlit? ) and then the view inside the folder,

    She is one of the most helpful/nicest people I have ever come across, on these forums!

    As per the PB style folders, I haven't come across a theme that will do this.

    Thank you all so much for the responses! I just downloaded the Mini_banner Live 10 theme. Is a very nice theme! It is just to bad that build was never released so theme builders never could really custimize them.
