Theme Install Hard Crash
After installing a theme posted here, my 8900 went into a tailspin, dreaded white t-mobile screen, got it back but now have lost the 'all messages" icon, video icon, and camera icon.
This happened once before and I wiped.
This time I'd rather not wipe. Ewwww. Sounds nasty.
How can I get these icons back?
I've done all the show all stuff.

Try and change back to a default theme.... then battery pull.
or just do a restore.

BTW... the beta themes can cause these issues, you should ALWAYS set a default theme when you do a reboot or battery pull.

I had this issue. Change your theme, then delete the theme causing trouble (under options-advanced options-applications-then the theme(delete it)). Then reset your device when it asks and you should be ok

I didn't even have to delete the theme.... the theme still works it is just a pain if i forget to check to default before re-booting...LOL

Like Clint said: Switch to one of the default Precision themes, restart and then switch back and you should be good to go. This is a common problem with any theme other than the Precision theme because they are Beta."There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't."How To Search ~ Search Effectively ~ Crackberry 101 ~ WiFi Guide ~ UMA Guide ~ SD Card Info ~ BB Browsers Explained

*looks at Aristile*
STOP following me!!! LOL
About time you woke up... how many snoozes did it take today?
I'm well aware of switching to default themes.
That was not the problem.
As I stated, the problem is it crashed at the end of the theme install.
So, theres no way to re-install the all messages icon, camera or video capture icons without restoring?

This is a good lesson for some people considering installing a new BETA theme.

DO USE BETA THEMES!!

I have been tinkering with Plazmic and worked up my first theme. It is almost finished and I was looking forward to installing it. After reading all these horror stories I think I will just wait until the official release. Thanks for all the warnings!"Learn to get in touch with the innermost essence of your being. This true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless; it is free; it is immune to criticism; it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment." - Deepak Chopra
