    Hello,

    I am in the process of trying to create my first theme using Theme Builder.

    I have made all new icons, and for whatever reason, the icon to my GMAIL box keeps reverting back to the old standard email icon. It is not happening with any other mailboxes....just gmail. I even tried adding a yahoo box to my phone, and had no problem.

    Any suggestions as to what I can do to keep the gmail box the new icon so it doesn't keep reverting back?

    Thanks!
    MORRY

    ps.....i am not talking about the GMAIL APP.....just a mailbox icon that my gmail is pushed to. thanks again!

    Yes.

    on your desktop:

    You need to edit two words in
    net_rim_bb_gmail.alx

    either search for net_rim_bb_gmail.alx or it is located in your OS folder in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\

    open net_rim_bb_gmail.alx in Notepad

    search for the word "true" and change both to false

    <required>false</required>
    <hidden>false</hidden>

    Now it will show up in apploader or desktop manager and let you uninstall it.

    This is the same method I use to uninstall Visual Voicemail.

    will this revert back when doing a battery pull, or if I receive new service books or anything? thanks!

    I'm trying to do this as well, however, when I edited .axl in notepad (per your instructions), I then opened the desktop manager and in the apploader, it was not there...
