    Anyway to unlock Storm2 Vendor Themes?

    I used some procedures I found online for modifying my blackberry.alx file, which I did successfully, but no other themes turned up as a result. Is this old trick possible with the Storm 2 to unlock the other vendor's stock themes? If so, and I've missed the post where it tells how, please direct me to it. All threads I've found discussing this were created several years ago and now don't include any instructions for what to do with Storm 2. I see the line item in the .alx where I'm sure I could add other theme .cods for the argument to call when loading, I just don't know their names, or if they even exist. Any info would be greatly appreciated

    Upon another reset, it did reveal a 'Precision TIM' theme, along with my Precision Zen stock theme that came installed, but that's it, and it looks identical to the latter.

    go to the blackberry axl file and open it with a text editor, when you get to the part where the themes are, just add or replace the vendor id that has with your carrier vendor id, ie if it has a bunch of numbers just add (in case you are on verizon) 105 and you are all set...

    let me know if you need a step by step in a better way...

    I did actually find the cod files in the java folder and went and installed them using BBSAK, but all of them were in landscape format, displaying on my phone when I had it as portrait, in other words, fail. Not what you said, but the method I did with them did.

    So what you're saying is that I should leave the _vendor ID part in there but change the numbers to 105 and I'll have all the themes then?

    And nah I don't need the step by step, I actually followed that from the other thread and doing some basic programming myself, understood it and all, just didn't wanna brick my s2 and thought I'd see if any others had success with it on one. Thanks so much for responding I'm gonna try that tomorrow and will report back.
