    Hey all,

    I tried searching for an answer and maybe I missed it but I cannot upload from the Desktop Manager the .alx file to the BB for themes. All are for my BB, the 8800.

    I have seen many others have had this issue to but I can't seem to find a fix.

    I have no issue provided I can actually download directly to the BB when surfing to the site on the BB itself. Lots of cool homemade themes don't allow for that though.

    Can someone help me please.

    Thanks!!

    Installing a theme on your Blackberry via a computer (Desktop Manager Download)

    Step 1. Download your desired theme. Themes are usually placed within ZIP packages, so unzip the files anywhere on your PC whenever they are downloaded. (Make sure the theme is made for your OS version)

    Step 2. Connect your Blackberry via USB and run Desktop Manager and Hit “Application Loader.”

    Step 3. Press next until you reach the Device Application Selector dialog. Hit the “Add” button, and navigate to your extracted theme file.

    Step 4. Finish the installation process by pressing next/ok. Your BB should restart.

    Step 5. Go to Options > Themes on your bb to activate theme.

    I have been able to figure it out. Seems I also have to upload the other file with it, I guess the program that created it.

    Anyway, I uploaded that one first then the .alx file and all is good.

    I've had this BB for a year now and I have just started to change things up and I have to say, this BB is a very versitle piece of equipment!

    Thanks for the posts guys/gals, the answers were helpful.

    There should be two files in the zip, download the other one (not the .axl one) first then you will be able to download the .axl fine.

    HTH.
