    I found someone cooked a 9900 rom with 9790 theme base file inside, so I modified the 9900 properties file to use 9790 theme base,instead of 9900, and it worked.

    HOLY SMOKES DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Lol, I can't put enough exclamation marks here!

    This works across the board, BTW.
    Here is a 9670 running with the Torch Theme .... again .... HOLY SMOKES!

    To clarify (I had to play around), here is what I did:
    - Get theme file from OS of your choice (download->install to PC->find folder->java folder->copy
    - Inject file into phone. BBSAK works, install COD, boom - done
    - Modify properties file that's in ...\BlackBerry Theme Studio 6.0\resources\theme\(whatever theme your making)
    - change theme.base = (...) to be the name of the theme file you are replacing (i.e. "theme.base = BlackBerry6_360x480_t")
    - create generic theme in theme builder.
    - export generic theme
    - enjoy ....

    in your case ,i guess you can find two themes named "blackberry6" in the theme option,one original, and one from 9800, and you should be able to run the 9800 one directly.

    Yes indeed, you are correct. It also works with other themes. I'll post a screenshot of my 9670 running an old old 9780 theme. I'm going to try to load a 9380 theme file next, to see if it works. It's possible that it doesn't work across different os versions, maybe?
    I haven't messed around with my 9930 yet, but I'll try to load the 9780 theme maybe tonight to see as well.

    Cool stuff, thanks again .
    Btw, when injecting theme files, be sure to restart the phone.
    I also put the phone's "correct" theme in the alt theme spot in the properties file. (took out the _32_ )

    Your 9700 should have the same theme file as the 9780 anyway, no? Unless you want to run this theme (makes me feel so nostalgic lol)
    check this out , a theme accident happened on 9900-sfnrg.jpg

    This theme will run without any hack whatsoever on a 9700 though, too.

    This would also mean you could make some brand new os7 themes here.... Just include the theme-base cod from whatever os you're referencing into the jad and have it installed with the theme. Request user to restart the device, and you can have things like the different formatting or under icon text on any phone.
    The beauty is, you can switch back to the default theme again, too.
    Anyway, I feel like I'm talking too much.

    I guess one has to be careful, though. It will also change formatting for things like calculator and calendar...

    Seems to be that as long as the OS versions match yes. I could not run a 9380 theme on a 9670. But a 9780 or 9800 just fine.
    I will try a 9850 theme on a 9930 next...

    So any theme for a OS7 device will NE able to run on another os7 device? So 9790-> 9860 or 9900->9790 ? Or 9780-9800 etc?

    I guess so. Os6 on os6 works fine. 9790 on 9900 works. Would stand to reason other would as well.

    the title bar is too short in blackberry6 layout, but I think you can make a perfect special custom theme in this way

    So, you can install a non_default layout theme cod from OS6 into a 99xx?

    I only tried the default layout, and I got that screenshot. I think the custom layout should be working too , but the cod theme base file I used is 9790 OS7.1 , not OS6.
    I don't know if the OS6 theme base file can be recoginized by OS7 devices.

    Cannot as per my testing. Neither the other way around. Neither could I get 'compiled' CODs for other phones to work.

    check this capture from <House of cards>, look familiar

    I tried to load the 9800 theme file to 9700 OS6, but the device didn't recognize it, can you tell me what tools and steps did you do?
    I don't want to cook a rom to make the theme working
