    Hi guys

    I hope you guys can help me plz.

    I am looking for a basic theme, that is wallpaper super friendly.

    Attached is a picture of what i have in mind, and as you can see i can barely manage paint, but this is the idea:

    Layout:
    1. The same size as the banner in Messages, at the top and bottom
    2. It must be somewhat seethrough, not black
    3. Notifications must be in the bottom bar
    4. Date replaces the notifications at the top
    5. The latest os or playbook icons to be used
    6. It would be nice to have a color battery

    Functionality:
    1. Battery goes to options
    2. Clock goes to clock
    3. Date goes to Calendar
    4. Connections go to connections
    5. Notifications go to messages
    6. Left click spot goes to Sounds (if there can be a sound icon)
    7. Right click spot opens 4 icons and they are the first you set in menu. (Back button will hide them)

    Additional:
    1. Stuff like fonts and so on must be the same as std blackberry.
    2. Lock screen can be std home screen
    3. Perhaps a menu screen like the old storm's faint blue light?

    If anyone would please help me, i would REALLY really REALLY appreciate it

    Yeah, needing just the ideal theme is not findable.
    That's why i just make my own theme.

    So for you maybe also an idea. It's really not hard, but the beginning is difficult, like all beginnings.
    Your functionality is more difficult to make. But is really not that necessary.
    You really would like a whole screen wallpaper?

    I like the phone to be functional. So have 3 items of my calendar, 2 of messages (are direct opening the that apps).
    And 8 (2 rows) icons for the app order.

    Wallpaper is not needed for me. But everyone it's own wishes.
    In one year i have my phone now. I made 3 main themes i really used a couple of months. And a few days ago my last.

    So in a couple of days/weeks/month, you probably want something else again.

    Yes, that is VERY much like my idea. And i have tried it, but there is a few thangs that bothers me about it:
    1. Top banner is slightly too big
    2. Don't need weather slot
    3. The icons that pop up is not my 1st 4, because of the useless hotspotsApps & weather slot

    Other than that, yes, that is very close to what i want.

    Well most objections can be dealt with.
    1) this can be acceptable, right?

    2) There is an app called BeBlank which created empty icons. Setup 2 in the begin, you don't have the left upper corner in use.
    Search Results for "beblank" - BlackBerry App World

    3) Also use BeBlank.

    I will take a look at how that works thanx
    I will report back.

    Otherwise i can perhaps ask the owner of that theme if he can customise for a donation...

    Ok, i have checked it.
    It is very nearly there.
    But unfortunately I don't like the hotspots, and the colors are a bit extreme contrast(i can live with that though.

    That's the reason a other person can't make the perfect theme for you.
    And a week later there are other changes.

    Try this for starters:

    See also the subforum for theme developers.

    Just download the theme builder and try something. Look at a sample theme. Ask questions on the forum.
    There are also youtube movies with tutorials.
