The Theme Zone presents: Vivid (hidden today)
Vivid (hidden today) is based on my original Vivid theme. The only difference is that instead of the fixed today area on the home screen it has a hidden today area.
This is a Full theme. Absolutely everything that is possible to be themed has been themed. All icons, All images, Call screen, Text messaging chat screens, etc.
I wanted to get away from the basic mostly black and white look and feel of Blackberry OS6 and give something bright, bold and vibrant. I hope you like it is much as I do.
Here's a quick walkthrough of some of the features starting with the Homescreen:
4 custom icons across the bottom
A Hidden Today that will show up to 10 Calendar appointment and new Messages
When you scroll over the Hidden Today area you get a large shaded underlay under your whole Today area so no matter what wallpaper you are using you will never have any difficulty reading your appointments or new messages
At first glance the banner area is very minimalist, just the battery and signal meters and the time, but there is much more there than is first visible:
There are 2 hidden icons that instantly appear when you scroll up to your banner area
Hidden icons are: Profiles and Weather
Select your battery meter to open Options
Select the time to open Clock/Alarm
Select your signal meter to open Manage ConnectionsIn addition to the 9 homescreen applications already mentioned there is also 3 hotkeys:
Hit spacebar to open Messages
Hit $ to open Text Messages
Hit 0 (zero) to open Calculator
As you have already seen above Vivid uses my own custom designed icon set. Here is a couple screen shots of the main All Applications screen and inside one of the folders so you can see the icons:
Next here is a couple images of the call log and call screens (areas that most themes don't cover at all):Next here is a couple of images of the messaging list and a Text Messaging chat:And now since I don't think I have posted quite enough screenshots yet here is one couple more:

In love the coustom icons, very wallpaper frendly, has a weather slot!
However I noticed in all of your screen shots there is not one of the landscape view. I guess you are aware of the issue with the wallpaper leaving a white blank strip on the rignt side in the landscape view (home screen).
The back button does not take you back to the homescreen in the landscape view after you open up an app.
When you switch back to the portriat from the landscape view it does not return to the homescreen portrait view.
I like this theme, hopefully there will be an update soon. I would pay for this theme if these bugs can be worked out. Good job!

Yes I forgot to mention about the lansdscape issue in the write up.
This theme is intended to be used in portrait mode only, however unfortunately there is a bug in Theme Builder Beta that causes what you described so as soon as Theme Builder comes out of beta this theme will be updated to properly lock out landsacpe mode.
In the meantime I recommend you use an app to lock the homescreen in portrait mode only.
Apps that wiil do this include: Quicklaunch, Lock Tilt, and my favourite - Six Tools.
Here is a link for Six Tools (its free): [Open Beta] Six Tools – The essential utility app for users running OS 6 | Get Blackberry Info

OMG OMG, this theme is breaking my Torch. Just try to test this theme but its not suitable for me so I uninstall it.
The problem is happening since there, after first reboot of this theme uninstalling, my Torch show up " A Media Card has been inserted that contains errors. Do you wish to repair it? ", and now I cannot access my memory stick card anymore. I did battery pull 5 times, even restoring the last backup but the error still occuring.
During this time, I haven't install any thing else to the Torch. So what can I do now???
This is very bad experience for me.

Ok, so i removed the Torch's memory card and inserting to the pc, and my 3GB of data in there is disappeared without a trace. This is disaster, anyway memory blank now so I try to format it with hoping Torch will recognise the memory card, and thanks god its does.
My Torch is working fine now but I just lost 3GB of working data.
