    Wow. Welcome to CB. I did not do the update but had no idea they took away the dark theme. This is the first I have heard of it. You have 10.2.1 and the new BBM doesn't allow the dark theme? Loading another bar will be in order I guess.

    I have the new update and dark theme is as before on both stock 10.2.0.429 and leaked 10.2.1.1055. It's supposed to work on 10.1 too. I would suggest a reboot then let it settle, or if that doesn't work, reload BBM. When I loaded the leaked 10.2.1.1055 I lost dark theme so just reloaded that and I was fine. Make sure your BBM version is 10.2.25.101

    You need 10.2 for the dark/white color theme options. Won't work on 10.1
    I found out the hard way.

    Is there any way to downgrade to the prior version of BBM? Be much simpler for me than installing new OS and all that comes with it

    That's bs though, because the previous version on 10.1 allowed you to change the theme, and doesnt let you after update.

    Anilu- I did try a reboot hoping for a auto-fix,but no luck.

    But BBM says version 10.2.20.103 and no option for another update

    Is 10.1.0.4780 the latest official OS from your provider?

    You are running 10.1 and had a BBM dark theme before this update? That means you sideloaded the extracted bars from 10.2.., correct?

    If you want dark themes with the official BBM update then you need OS 10.2..

    No I have never sideloaded anything, don't even know how to be honest.

    Yes I had dark theme on previous version of BBM with 10.1 OS and the option to change from dark or light theme.(I have never loaded a leaked OS either)

    Exact same deal with me. With 10.1 the dark theme worked fine, not sure if there was an option to switch or if it was just dark/black by default. I know my Calendar went to white with the maint. release of 10.1 that I am on, but I don't remember ever doing anything to BBM. Not sure what prior version of BBM was either...

    the white just seems so harsh once you are used to the black/dark.....

    You know, I noticed my calendar went white all of the sudden too but I didn't know it was after the last OS update... dumb.

    I have Dark Theme with Text and Calendar, but I can't figure out how to get BBM into Dark Theme. I have all the latest updates. Any ideas?

    I have a Z10 and I had 10.1 just about a month back and let me tell you there was no black theme anywhere on the phone! Not on BBM, calender, contacts or texts, just no black theme at all! Got the black theme after I updated to 10.2.

    Clearly nobody wanted black theme once trying the beta over the past 5 months. If anyone had wanted black theme, BlackBerry obviously wouldn't have released the official version with white only. I mean, if countless people posted here how upset they were at losing black theme after installing beta, and BlackBerry ignored them and released the official version with white only, that would just be insane...

    ...oh wait.
