    Theme has OS 4.6/4.7/5.0 for every device)
    BE SURE YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE CORRECT VERSION FOR YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM!!!
    To check your OS go to OPTIONS>ABOUT> And it should say something like: "v5.0.0.328 (Platform 4.2.0.128)"



    Trackball Device (Bold, Tour, Curve 8900) Theme Operation Instructions

    (THIS SECTION DESCRIBES HOW TO OPERATE VARIOUS PARTS OF THE THEME)
    START UP
    1. Once the theme loads make sure you are on the home screen
    2. Scroll your trackball to the right and the Light blue arrow on the bottom right gray/white button area will turn orange and text will appear saying SCROLL UP
    3. The Blue Up Arrow (From now on mentioned as the START BUTTON) button that turns Orange when selected is your STARTING POINT. IF EVER IN DOUBT HOW TO GET SOMEWHERE, SCROLL TO THE ARROW BUTTON AND WHEN IT TURNS ORANGE YOU KNOW YOU ARE THERE)
    4. All of the following instructions assume you are on the Start Button and moving from there

    TODAY AREA Screen
    1. Scroll your trackball to the right once, the Media Center screen will slide in.
    2. Wait for the animations to completely finish before scrolling to the right once more to highlight the Today Area button (a blue orb will appear and the Today Area screen will slide in to let you know you are there)
    (If the today area screen doesn't slide in, or it slides in but disappears immediately after, then you have scrolled to quickly between Media Center and Today Area, you MUST wait for the animations to finish before scrolling, Repeat step 2 if errors occur)
    3. Scroll the trackball up to visit the Today Area Icons, select the icons by scrolling left or right, a blue orb will appear underneath so you know which is selected, and the far left and right icons will flash to let you know they are selected
    4. The far left and far right icons on the Today Area are customizable icons which are determined by what applications in your App Menu are in slot numbers 3 and 4.
    5. When either Messages, SMS/MMS or Calendar are selected and you have New Messages, SMS or Calendar entries, you can scroll up to select the Hidden Today area entries.
    6. Scroll down from any of the Today Area icons to return to the Start Button or Today Area buttons which will allow you to navigate the rest of the theme

    MEDIA CENTER Screen
    1. Scroll your trackball to the right once, the Media Center screen will slide in.
    2. Scroll the trackball up to visit the Media Center Icons, select the icons by scrolling left or right, a blue orb will appear underneath so you know which is selected, and the far left and right icons will flash to let you know they are selected
    3. The far left and far right icons on the Media Center are customizable icons which are determined by what applications in your App Menu are in slot numbers 1 and 2.
    4. Selecting each individual application will bring up a mini-preview of which icon was selected in the slot window above the icons.
    5. You can also switch between the Today Area and the Media Center screens when you are already one of the others by simply scrolling between the Media Center or Today Area buttons. (EX: When on the TODAY AREA button, scroll to the Media Center button to switch directly to the Media Center screen)
    (WARNING: SWITCHING BETWEEN THE TODAY AREA, MEDIA CENTER AND HOMESCREEN SCREENS TOO QUICKLY MAY CAUSE THE SCREENS TO NOT APPEAR PROPERLY OR TO HIDE AFTER SHOWING, OR NOT SHOW AT ALL, ALLOW ATLEAST 1 SECOND BETWEEN SWITCHING BETWEEN SCREENS ((If the today area screen or media center screen doesn't slide in, or it slides in but disappears immediately after, then you have scrolled to quickly between Media Center and Today Area, you MUST wait for the animations to finish before scrolling)))

    CROSS BAR Operation/Battery Info
    1. Scroll up once to visit the Cross Bar.
    3. The Cross Bar features Browser, Manage Connections (labeled Connections), Options and Profiles
    4. Scroll left or right to navigate the Cross Bar, when you select any of the applications, 2 blue selection buttons should appear on either side of the application you have selected.
    5. To return to the Start Button, scroll down from any of the applications on the Cross Bar

    Few days, It was a pain to convert to all the different devices and re-do the navigation for each...since the import feature for plazmic doesnt work for some reason....if you have no idea what I mean with import feature then just forget what I said....nevertheless, a few days

    Phosphoresce is almost ready! All the versions are at final internal testing, and now I need good beta testers to actually put them on their devices and see if the features work on not just MY phone! :P

    What is expected of a beta tester:

    1. Run through the list of elements I give you once you are selected as a beta tester multiple times to find any errors or bugs
    2. Use the device like you normally would and see if anything pops up while you are just doing your daily business on it
    3. Report your findings to me either as you find them, or compile a list of a few and send them to me via reply email
    4. Keep all files and information you download confidential, this is a commercial product and is protected by copyright.

    What you get as a beta tester:

    1. An insider look at the workings of an advanced theme
    2. Get to participate in the outcome of the final product
    3. You will be added to the updates list which will automatically send you notification of when the theme is updated
    4. Free copy of the final product after testing is complete and the product is released

    If you are interested, send me an email to JAAORTEGA@GMAIL.COM with subject line "Phosphoresce Beta Test Inquiry"

    I need people who own a Storm, Storm 2, 8900, 9000 and a Tour...any and all OS's.

    I need two people per device so space is limited and if you dont get a reply back by November 08, Sunday, by 5pm PST, then its not because I didnt get the email, or that I am ignoring you, its just that the spots are filled...

    Thank you for the support!

    Ya, speaking of which thought id post here and let everyone know that the transition into 5.0 for the Storm versions was flawless for Phosphoresce, which means the trackball versions will not be held up either, although for whatever reason, half of my other themes are not transfering over well, or are having alot of issues with phantom hot spots and buttons simply not working now with the new buggy Theme Studio software...

    So ya, once again, Phosphoresce is due good for a Friday release providing nothing drastic happens

    Thanks to my beta testers (You know who u are!! xD) so far for doing an amazing job, although i do miss Shayd, halfnoon and breezer who didnt contact me, punks, and missed the beta

    Just purchased. Some different ideas here. Probably potential to be a stronger theme when a couple bugs get worked out.

    Not thrilled w/disclaimer that if you scroll too quickly past the animation, it won't work as designed. I've found that with the bold trackball being (well let's say) not perfect, its not very easy to stop exactly as intended. Scrolling past "today" or "media" and getting a blank template w/today area items showing up is disappointing. Also seems everything, including promo is geared to storm users. Even the browser link with the bold version is to the storm thread here. Also first post in bold thread should be bold screenshots not storm.

    I think the word sophisticated may have been too sophisticated for you.
