I wish I could find the toilet paper, I keep getting this stuff all over me!:laugh2:

The nice part is,you guys put in the time and effort and churn out such good themes that I don't need to. Besides, you said it's pretty limited, however, I do like what you've done. I guess it's not so much about what can be done as much as how it's done. Your layouts and hot spots are 99% perfect.
If I may be so bold to offer a suggestion or two.
1. I very rarely use the browser, I use the link buttons and store them under a folder named "Links", so from the home screen I hit the icon for the links folder and have all the hot buttons right there to hit for most of my browser needs. If you could make one of the static buttons a link to a folder, that would be cool in my book.
2. I've changed the name of the "Instant Messaging" folder to just "Messaging" and put all of my messaging icons in that folder. When I get a notification that I have a message, I hit the "Messaging" icon and then choose how I want to look at the new message, either all of them at once (both my work and private) or just work, or just private or just sms, or just,,,,well you get the picture. Just seems more organized to me.
So having a button that takes me to the Messaging folder and one for the Media folder and one for the Applications folder and one for the Downloads folder and one for a folder to be named later, would be the best use of the buttons for me. This would be the only reason I would learn how to make themes, I'd steel your fine design and modify it to my needs.
One last question, are you working on anything new? Your themes seem to be more in line for the way I use the phone, so a new theme of yours would be of interest to me more than another.
Hang in there and keep the good stuff coming.

As far anything new, well... Yes and no, i have a few themes half done and sitting on the self. Sometimes i loose the creative touch on a theme and have to walk away from it for awhile.
At the moment i'm doing a slight update/remake to Earl Grey and just released an update for Black Pearl and Eco7 last week.
Now you know there are a few of my themes that i did not start a thread for here at blackberryos.com
If you look at the app store you might see something new. I think i released two themes between this one and Eco7.
Forgot to post these
So I came back here to get the background and realized I never posted the screenies. Actually it's 2 because I can't make up my mind. Still in Iraq, but I'll be done soon enough. (Hence the no coverage) BTW...don't suppose you will have a fix for .607 The center lock on this theme doesn't work anymore. You & ROCK!!

My beta team is not switching to .607 because they say it is buggy. As you have found out.
I'm still using a Storm 1 :aargh4:
I'll have full 3G access within the next 24 hours or so...I'll update you from my Storm 2 soon!!!!
OK so VZW f'd up the global thing on my way back, but I've been rocking this theme for a week and some change now. Before I left, BerryWeather was still on the old format...it looks killer on this theme! Here are my issues/suggestions: Since the SMS Today function now works, add the background window to it like with messages and calender. A skinned icon for Visual Voice Mail would be nice too. Now that I've used without the lock feature, I kinda like it that way. I'd make that a goto app screen zone instead. I have noticed that some of the fonts are skewed on the active call screen (kinda zigzagy). Last one a few times I have brought up a popup menu and the letters look ghosted out. Once you tap one, they all go back to normal. Not sure if that's an OS thing or not. Bottom Line- I still love this theme...keep up the good work!
