    does it have to be to of each? the large and the small? and whats the decoration semi circle?

  14. jlev Says:

    anyone know why i can only get three backgrounds to come up??
    there are like six each in a subfolder but i can only see three. ive played around with different combonations of them for like half an hour now and i cant get more than 3. im also doing this on a mac if it makes a difference

  15. sr24vlz Says:

    you use the same file of small bubble for both the small bubbles and you use the same file of the big for the big bubbles. the semi circle is the half circle in a folder.

  18. b-easy Says:

    yes, macs put a ‘hidden’ .ds_store file which will make the sidekick not want to read it. u can move the theme to a PC and delete it, or u can look in the forum for it.

  19. nmoore Says:

    ok i have tried like 6 times to do this and it won’t save what am i doing wrong?

  20. NovaCane101 Says:

  23. sr24vlz Says:

    i’ve noticed that the more u add to a theme, the slower the phone works… i just added the nobubbles to one of my backgrounds and i nothiced the phone a bit laggier

  24. C-LO21 Says:

    nah its cuz ur sd is probably full or close to it

  25. b-easy Says:

    yea. i agree.. when u fisrt change the themes its slow, but after that its fine for me..

  28. sr24vlz Says:

    How does the Hinge Sound on the Featured Themes Work?!?!?!

  35. b-easy Says:

    i agree

  36. Marcofromda510 Says:

    Ok, well I just worked on my own theme last night and figured out a few things, nothing monumential or major. For the people who use the generator, on ur SD Card, make a folder called Themes, so after you download your theme from the generator, you notice the folder is zipped, I found it easyer to just open it copy the folder and its contents inside and paste it in the themes folder, delete the zipped folder and everything in it, unplug and you should see your new theme under backrounds. The generator resizes pics for you automaticly, atleast it did for me, I tryed using a pic that was 500X499 and it turned it 240×138 by its self. Just trying to help, oh yea you can get rid of the T-mobile people and bubbles with the generator. P.S. I don’t think T-Mobile can block the themes cheat, mainly because it is all happenening on the Mini SD Card and the phone is just reading it. Also why would they block it? Its not like their losing money or selling themes/backrounds to us or making them available to us. That’s just my own opinion
