Raestloz's THE iDOLM@STER MOBILE theme for BlackBerry 9700
« on: October 17, 2010, 10:25:48 PM »

Hello, this is Raestloz posting

You might have seen my Kaspersky 2010, Firefox, and Symbian40 3rd skin thread, where I stated I might try skinning for BlackBerry smartphone. Well, I did, and as usual it's another THE iDOLM@STER product.

I name it THE iDOLM@STER MOBILE. Why? Is that name not fitting enough? Anyway, screenies and download link is at the botom of this post

Features:
1. The ONLY THE iDOLM@STER theme for BlackBerry (That I know of. Come to think of it: I might be the first person on earth to create an iM@S theme for BlackBerry!)

2. Carefully crafted with love and dedication (I spent literally weeks to make this).

3. Sports high-resolution images (Mostly because Bold 9700 has 480x360 screen)

4. Rotating scroll dock that follows your top 6 application order


Drawbacks
1. This is an amateur attempt by a mortal fan. Do not expect great things here. I do, however, try to do my best in adding fancy features

2. This theme is custom built, as in each and every part was made to work with another. As such, this theme is very NOT customizable (also, it's a custom theme already)

3. This theme was made with ME in mind. That's right: each and every part of this theme is made to suite my liking, not anyone else's. If you don't like a part of this theme, please bear with it. You can, however, suggest things, I'm not an expert designer, you see (and your liking might be incorporated)

4. I do not customize all of the available icons, notably LDAP certificates and Reminder (whatever the hell this reminder is). One, I don't use ceritifcates, two Calendar, Memopad, Tasks, Clock, whatever it is that has a reminder have already been customized. I'm baffled as to what this Reminder here do

Screenshots:

Active Call


Application Screen


Dialog Popup


Dialog Menu


Available profiles


Homescreen


Incoming Call


Lockscreen


Well, download link:
MediaFire
MultiUpload (just because it happened)

Extract the zip file
Locate the .alx (the .cod should be in the same directory) with BlackBerry Desktop Manager and install it

It looks like testing the thing with the actual device and condition is much better. Just today I experienced a bit of problem with the call screens. Both of them, namely the fonts are too damn big they obscured each other

I've reduced the font size. Should still be clearly visible, but I'll test it with actual data

Also, icons are being redesigned.

EDIT: Forgot to add acknowledgement, silly me.

Problems with icons and call screens
« Reply #5 on: October 24, 2010, 11:33:18 AM »
I've reduced the call screen's font size and now while they're not too big, they're a bit too small.

I'll have to reconfigure them again. For now, I need to think about the custom icons I've been making, some of the icons are too small. There is also a problem with the icons being a bit hard to see around Haruka's face in applications list. However, that's not a real issue (it's still clearly visible, only Haruka's face make it a bit colorful, depending on what icon is there)

Well, I can't help but post it :D

version 0.9b is out. Pretty much just a lot of new custom icons. Version 1.0 will include custom backgrounds for menus and such. But for now custom icons is the priority

The theme is finished
« Reply #9 on: October 30, 2010, 04:50:40 AM »
this is a bit late because I accidentally wiped my BlackBerry when installing the theme (silly me, I know of a safe method but chose a more troublesome way instead) and was in a bad mood, but here's version 1.0

I'll update the first post with screenshots and whatnot

I am very jealous because I don't own a Blackberry, since I have a Droid. 
Great job on the theme it looks really nice.
