    not to get picky, but are you trying to download it to your phone from your phone?

    you should be downloading it to your pc, then installing and going from there...

    the only thing you dan download directly to your phone is any ota's. (Over The Air)

    OK, you say the theme is on your phone but won't apply, how do you know that....

    did you do an OTA with the jad file?

    DM is for .alx files

    OTA is for .jad files

    maybe it isn't as simple as that, i'm not sure where your at and trying to collect as much info as possible

    How did you install them to your device? Through the DM?

    OK, but that doesn't mean that they are installed correctly.

    What I would do is:

    1. Delete the files out of (Options/Advanced Options/Applications)

    2. Pull the battery, wait 30 sec, put battery in

    3. Reinstall the Theme to your phone:

    EITHER DO:

    >>>>>>>>Download theme from device over the web MUST BE A .JAD file ONLY

    ---------------------------------------OR----------------------------------

    >>>>>>>>Using the DM, Browse to the .alx file and install that way.



    Let me know how it goes...


    PS, if you have done all of this before, then I would

    Backup the device, wipe the phone, then do it all again.

    I would try everything from a fresh stand pont.

    if pulling it and reinstalling doesn't work, then backup, wipe , and starting from new should do the trick.
    unfortunately, sometimes it isn't easy.

    If you PM me your email address I will send you a theme that is verified that it works. You may have a corrupted theme....doesnt happen often but it does happen

    To wipe:

    I use JL_Cmder to wipe.

    Install it to your PC, and the icon will show up on your desktop.

    Run it and you will see the black box show up. Option 4 is to wipe as it shows.

    I will be making a how to for this tonight, I am back and forth at the moment; I'm splitting my time between here and sick family members...

    Do you have the ability to get the .jad file of the theme? It may be much easier for you...quick and painless over the web
