    *** Added OTA download ***
    *** Uploaded ver 1.09 of the theme ***

    This weekend I polled all of my creative energy (what little I have) and channeled it into making my first (maybe only) theme for the Blackberry. It's not really that difficult if you have the right tools (Photoshop, Plazmic Theme Builder, etc.) and a lot of patience. As a note, I designed this for my Blackberry Curve model 8330 and I'm not sure if it will work on other Blackberrys.

    Ok, I am truly a Blackberry newb. How exactly would I setup the OTA download? I host some domains, so would I just upload the .jad file and then point to it?

    I have a Sprint 8830 WE and installed this beauty of a theme and it seems to be working just fine...a little slow but I noticed when I install themes onto my BB they slow down the phone a bit, but other than that its pretty kosher. Thanks!

    Wow this one sweet looking theme. I believe I will make this my 1st ever custom theme I add to my BB. Is this in icon style or zen? If zen is it possible to make it icon style too? It saves me a button press to bring up all icons.

    Just a little tidbit of inside information. The browser button in the my Bamboo theme is the actual image of the tattoo I have on my back right shoulder.
    For you kids out there that's no big deal, but I'm a nerd who got his first (only) tattoo at 40 so it was a big deal for me.

    I just noticed you updated the theme since I installed it on my BB so I just updated to the new version 1.09. I think I got the basics down on using plazmic. I am going to begin creating a theme this weekend. One thing I'm trying to figure out is which fonts and font sizes you used for the date and time. I really like how those look and it is hard to tell comparing the BB to my PC screen to match what you used. I'm still trying to come up with a theme for the theme

    If you like this theme, take a look at the cool modification I did to it here:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/f16/bam...-8330-a-54624/

    I added zen icons on the left and right and placed the messages "today" thing at the bottom. Enjoy!
