Blackberry Storm OS 5.0 Theme Issues!!!

I downloaded OS 5.0 for my Storm 9530 last night. It runs great. I love my phone again. It stopped all the memory leaks.

 

My only problem is when I reinstalled two themes that I bought from crackberry.com. The themes pull up and run properly. But when I turn my phone to landscape the background image doesn't stretch all the way and the icons blurr or freeze on screen when i scroll. up and down. Besides this everything else is great. The themes say they are compatible with OS 5.0.

 

Any help or suggestions would be wonderful. Thanks in advance.

My Corvette Theme does the same thing. I deleted it and re downloaded  it and it still does it. It says for 4.7 and the 5.0 version but there is something in the RIM software that creates bars on the side and keeps the Theme from expanding on both sides.

The worst part is MobilHand is not replying to messages sent them about this problem.

mln1523,

 

I have to agree both my Storm 9530 and my mothers, who just got hers 2 days ago, were good on themes.  Now after the installation of the new OS 5.0 my themes, all 4 of them, do the exact same thing.

 

Blurred icon edges, bars both left and right of the screen in landscape mode.  I have tried many different themes and none of them work.

 

I hope someone can indentify this issue and find a resolution soon.  I like my themes I created and others so hopefully soon.

Hi, all,

There seems to be a problem with some themes interpreting the software update.  I have read that some users overcame the problem by changing the wallpaper on the theme and it might work.  Worth a try.

Same thing is happening here, and changing the wallpaper didn't fix it.  Kind of disappointed.  I had just purchased a premium theme that I cannot use now.  I hope this issue is fixed soon.

Doc, the wallpaper goes with the theme,sort of defeats the idea of the theme?

This is a known issue with the new OS update. These themes were not written for 5.0. Give the developers time to update their themes...they will come. in the meantime, just use the boring 'ol factory theme or download some developed for 5.0. There are tons of freebies out there. A great resource is:: {no third party software/apps links please} for cool themes and apps (most free) for your BB's and Windos Mobile phones. Check him out often. He updates all the time. His content can be trusted. if there is a good working theme for BB 5.0.XX he will post it !

I've had this problem as well.  There is a workaround!  I found this on a UK website.  From your home screen, hit the BlackBerry Button, then go to Options and Layout, change to 3 rows and save then go back to Layout and change back to your theme's original layout and save again.  I tried this with 2 third party themes and it works.  Note that any time you do a battery pull or hard reset (such as deleting programs) you'll have to do this procedure again, but this is a good start until the themes are updated.
