Additional Folder Icons
Hey there, does anyone know if there is a way to add to the small amount of default folder icons that come included on the phone? I haven't been able to find anything that could do so or give instructions as to where to add files, but it seems like it shouldn't be that hard of a task...

Go to the main screen and hit the BlackBerry Menu button until you get a menu. Then click "Add Folder." It's that simple. After that you can name the folder and choose the icon for it.

I'm not entirely sure, there might be a 3rd party app that allows you to have your own pictures for quicklinks and stuff like that, but I'm not sure that it will let you have your own pictures for folders and such.

For Storm and Bold users this can't work with OS5.x since RIM have decided to make the System Folder READ ONLY... no 3'rd party app can store anything in the system folder (which is a requirement for having customize folder icons) - it works perfectly in OS 4.7 - But with OS5 -> no way - sorry

9550: .320 (for about 20mins), .517, .607, .713
I guess you can follow me on Twitter?

I had used FileScout to set up a bunch of custom folders when I was still running 4.7 whatever. When I upgraded to 188.8.131.528, all of the customized folder icons came along for the ride; in other words, when I did my backup and then restore, everything was there. However, I decided to rename a custom folder a week or two after that. I didn't know that RIM had made the icons folder read-only, and I lost the ability to use that one custom icon for the folder. I can see all of my pngs in the samples folder, but I can't access them.
I am loathe to upgrade to 184.108.40.2069 just in case the folders DON'T come along this time. I will wait until either someone works out how to get around this or until RIM lets us access this folder again. Honestly, what's the problem with letting us in, RIM?CrackBerry Newbie but NOT BlackBerry Newbie!
