While many, much more capable folks, are focusing on what can be done with a rooted playbook long term, and how to keep it rooted, I took this change to take a look at how i can change the look and feel of the playbook. Much like the themes on the BlackBerry devices, I took to changing the icons and wallpaper on my Playbook. I have also started looking at replacing all of the startup screens for each of the applications. I dont create my own icons so i got alot from deviantart. A good thread to look in would be here .
great job !!! But i think u should not use icon same same Apple ^^! don't try to make Playbook become Ipad or anythink!! Playbook just is BB and i think BB not bad and many many icon stylis to use...
Just my ideal but its really really kool
Your post is the second one that leans me toward rooting... lol i wana custom theme this badboy badly... i have a second playbook now so i think its time lol great post man! oh
For anyone curious the first thing i saw that made me want to root was actually a youtube video of a guy able to get data off a usb thumb drive through the pb usb port
but what i been waiting for was a way to change themes!! keep us updated on other ui changes your able to do! also maybee doing this is super easy but u should think about making a tutorial on where the files are ? maybee its obvious heh i need to root now!
let me see what all can be changed theme wise and i will definitely get that tutorial up
Awesome man! I put os2 on my 16gb pb.. gonna root it tonight i think and mess around but what Im really curious about is can you apply a new icon to folders ? im gonna guess no as the default folder changes a bit everytime u drag a new icon into it? I havent played with os2 much yet but let me know if u have tried this
i didn't want to root my playbook until i saw this and the post that talk about usb
thx guys to make my playbook better than my ipad2 (anyway it was already better)
let me know (if you can) the link to root my playbook . i'm with beta 2.x.x.6... (i know i must downgrade before but i'm afraid to root (never did it) but i want it.
I can't wait to see themes be released soon.
Awesome look and feel, matrix and tron like looks awesome.
I'm curious if we'll ever (officially) get themes for BB10. I haven't looked a whole lot into it (cuz I lack skill to make nice icons). But changing an icon requires reboot (unless there's some binary for updating the icons that I haven't found yet). Also, the only app icons I've found so far are within the app it's self, so... A theme switcher would need to detect current theme name, rename the icon in use accordingly, rename the desired theme icon to the default icon name, or something along those lines. I'm sure those are the icons in use because I screwed with the app world one.
Hopefully RIM works something out though. I love themes
