    Test The Theme With The Simulator First . If Its OK Only Then Try To Put It On The Phone.

    Use Desktop Manager To Install The Theme Or Connect The Phone To The PC In Storage Mode , Put The Folder Containing The Theme On The Memory Card
    On The Phone Go into The Media Icon And Use The Menu To Explore .
    Choose Media Card . Choose The Folder With The Theme In . Scroll Down And You Will See Loads Of Files choose The.jad File (Usually The Smallest)
    It Will Ask To Download So Download It (It Downloads It From The Card Not The Internet). It Will Then Tell You Its Installed.

    On The Phone Choose The Options Icon Then Theme From The List.
    You Will Now See A List Of Themes Choose Yours And It Will Activate It

    This Method is for the JAD export. It should also be noted that both JAD and ALX exports use the COD files and you will need to make sure IF you export them both ways, that you export them to different folders.

    The JAD method is really for OTA installs. (I offer FREE OTA Hosting, PM me in you are interested) If you do not plan on offering the theme for OTA Download, then i'd use the ALX method.

    ALX Install
    After exporting to ALX, connect your BB via USB to your PC and Open Desktop Manager. From there, go to Application Loader > Add/Remove Applications Start. Not, after the Application Loader Screen loads, Click Browse... and navigate to where you saved your ALX export. Click the ALX file and Open. Click Next on the Application loader screen and let it install.
