    I just put an update that affects four .apks. This is for the Camera, Calendar, Gmail, and Music. First remove the instances I put in there by accident (making you have double)

    Code:
    su
    mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system
    rm /system/app/Camera.apk
    rm /system/app/Calendar.apk
    rm /system/app/Music.apk
    Again these are ones that I created and didn't look at the .apk names close enough. Reboot and apply the update.

    I really like the looks of this theme except it removes the percentage from the battery icon, which is a feature I can't live without. For some reason my Facebook widget didn't black out either.

    Ok I did all the extras and I like this theme a lot, just wish the battery icon was like it was in smoked glass. How hard would it be for you to modify that? I'm not a themer so I have no clue, lol. Good job on this one either way bro.

    I noticed last night when I downloaded the theme, when I tried to go into the file and delete the different apk's I dont usually use I got some weird error message saying corrupt file. I didnt actually try flashing but I thought this was weird, I have had no other problems doing this with every other rom/theme out there. Any help you be great, maybe just a broke link to the theme or something if your having problems flashing

    Corrupt file when deleting .apk's is due to using winrar. Try using 7zip and open as an archive and delete that way. There is nothing wrong with the download file. Otherwise I would have over 100 people screaming at me (that's how many have downloaded it).

    Awesome theme. Absolutely love it. Came from Evolution Theme and realized that black background throughout A) increases battery life B) shows a lot less fingerprints. Great theme.
    I installed the theme, the updated app package, and the black market. Three small issues resulted.

    1) The short press of the search button does not activate typed search. Long press for the voice input works fine, but the short press does not. It was the case when I initially installed BB 0.5, but I ran the fix in the terminal and gained it back (ln -s fix). But now if I try to run the same fix it says that the file already exists. And yet I cannot get the button functionality back.

    2) Pete added the video camera app to his ROM. It's basically a regular camera app, but it starts immediately in the video mode instead of photo. It was a cool little functionality. The installation of your camera app resulted in the video app force closure. I tried turning your app into a .bak version, re-installing Pete's original camera app from his ROM zip, but that broke the camera altogether. I had to go back to your camera app, so Pete's video app still does not work.

    3) The notification bar with all the icons, the pulldown screen, and the lock screen icons all remained from Evolution ROM. I actually like them like that, but I wondered why they did not change. They are part of your theme for BB, aren't they?

    These are certainly not deal breakers and I'm looking forward your progress on this theme as it is certainly my favorite. But if you could think of a way to fix the issues above I would certainly appreciate it.

    Have a drink on me, nevertheless!

    Also, I did not see an OP for your theme in the BB section. Am I missing it? I think many more BB users would rock your theme if exposed to it.
    Ignore the post if you already have it there.

    I will have to load my up from a restore and see how things are. The notification bar and everything should changed to look like the pics.

    I have not put this in the BB section, as I wanted to have control of my own thread.

    Before I forget. THANK YOU SO MUCH, SIR!!!!!

    A couple of questions for you sir...

    Can we drag and drop the updated apps into the BnBold theme
    .zip prior to flashing so we don't have to do this?

    When you say instances? Do you mean remove each
    app so we don't get duplicates once the update.zip is applied?


    Edit: One more question.
    When you say reboot after applying the removal via a terminal emulator you didn't
    mention the Gmail app, yet it is there for the update.

    it wasn't clear if we should type in rm gmail in the dev/mtblock4 section and
    second, after we type in the commands we don't need to type in sys -ro, then sync, then reboot?

    When it comes to commands I like detail so when it says reboot we type in reboot once the commands are
    entered?
