    I hven't done it on an 8703e, but I don't see how that blackberry.alx file would be any different from the rest. Just make a backup of your BB, then give it a shot.

    The point is to get more themes than the ones that came loaded. Here is an example of what you could have:

    AT&T
    BB Demension Icon
    BB Deminsion Today
    BB Deminsion Zen
    O2 Today
    02 Zen
    Orange
    Sprint
    Telefonica Zen
    TIM Zen
    T-Mobile Zen
    Verizon
    Vodafone Today

    Anyone know how to do this on a Macintosh Computer? Or would it be easier to download the software on a Windows?

    You'll have to do it on a PC.

    I've modified Motorola RAZR phones in much the same way, so I took the plunge today and followed your instructions and sure enough, the next time I synched my Pearl it loaded the modified files and reset.

    It worked like a charm!!!!!

    THANKS kasperad!!!!!

    I was able to get this done with no problem however, I don't think its really worth the time for me. The themes it unlocked are nothing to write home about in my opinion, so unless you REALLY don't like what you have, it may not be worth the time.

    One thing I did notice through the process of updating the OS is that the following file was removed: net_rim_bb_lbs_internal_gps

    Is it possible this has something to do with VZW crippling the GPS?

    I was not able to save the modified blackberry.alx file after editing in wordpad. Access was denied. Any ideas?

    This might be a Vista problem. I'm using XP and it works fine. Try saving it as a different file name. If it will allow you to do that... then go to the original blackberry.alx file and rename it to blackberry.alx.old. Now take the new file you just saved and rename it to blackberry.alx

    Does that work???

    Do I need to be running a certain OS to find this file? I'm on the Curve AT&T.

    I'm not able to save the file at all, can't rename and save. Thanks for the suggestion though. If anyone has a solution, please let me know.

    It will be with any OS, but you need to download and install the OS to your PC to find it.

    I'm running Desktop v4.2.1.8 with an 8703. When I browse to the given folder for the .alx file, I only have the following: App loader, Modem Drivers, USB Drivers, and RIM Device Manager. None of these folders has the blackberry.alx file even with hidden files shown. Any ideas?

    You have to have the Operating System for your device downloaded and installed on your PC.

    Cool. I accessed the linke provided to the OS site, but my provider (Cellular South) is not listed. Does this mean, I will not be able to do this?

    You can download the 8703e OS from any other carrier that has it, like Verizon or Sprint. owever, you will also need to find and delete the Vendor.xml file if you do this. But it will work.

    Well, I tried doing everything you said. But, I do not have a "blackberry.alx" file on my PC. I tried my other PC where I have the old version of my desktop manager and this files does not exist either.

    So what do I do / try next?
