    Theme wallpaper reset and other theme tips

    I get questions all the time asking how to reset a theme. I decided to write up a few ways to reset theme/wallpapers.

    QUICK WAY TO CHANGE WALLPAPERS
    Many people do not realize that there is a much easier way of changing the homescreen wallpaper.
    Instead of going into the Media Library, hit the BB button to access the App Screen. Then hit the BB button again and choose "Options".
    There is a "Change Wallpaper" button that will allow you to change the wallpaper easily.

    RESET THEME WALLPAPER
    This is a quick and easy way to reset back to a theme's default wallpaper. Hit the BB button to bring up the App Screen.
    Then hit the BB button again and select "Options". Toward the bottom there is a "Reset Wallpaper" button. Push it and a dialog box will ask you to confirm.
    Select "Yes" and there you go! The theme default wallpaper is back.

    RESET ICON ARRANGEMENT
    Hit the BB button to bring up the app screen. Then hit the BB button again and select "Options". At the bottom there is a "Reset Icon Arrangement" button.
    This button will reset all the icons back to their default locations. This will not reset the wallpaper.

    FULL THEME RESET
    If you ever need to totally reset a theme back to it's default setting, then here is how to do it.
    Go to Options>>Theme and highlight(don't click) the theme you want to reset. Hit the BB button and select "Reset Theme Defaults".
    This will restore all theme settings back to the default state. You will have to rearrange all icons again after this is done!


    Droooooiiiiiid!

    I'm experiencing this not working on a theme I'm beta testing. Not sure if it's the theme or 5.0 causing the problems. The home screen changes back but the app menu 'sticks'. But that's a glitch you're instructions are 100% correct if everything is working properly.

    I have heard that 5.0 can mess with certain apps/themes.

    5.0 has a few issues still. I have had similar
    Problems with it. Lots of cool new features
    But still some odd bugs. Some of which I'm
    Surprised got over looked. Sorry Mike, I
    Thinks the 5.0.
    Thanks Nate, I see this question slot also
    I don't know one us hadn't done this sooner!
    Now it will be just an easy link
