Hey, First off, I love your themes. Second, I have a sidekick slide. I already know how to put them on my phone and make them show up and everything.When I go 2 extract to my phone, after I selectthe browse button, and I select my folder, then hit extract, I get a pop-up window that will ask me the password 4 each component. Please Help, what do I use for a password?

Try extracting the files to a different folder then just copy them from there to your Themes folder, If this is happening with one of my themes, you're doing something wrong because none of my themes are password protected. Also the problem could be the program you're using to extract the files. Try a different program if you keep getting errors.

are you having trouble only with that theme? have you gotten any other downloaded themes to work? if so then that theme might be corrupted, otherwise double check your folder is named "Themes" and not "Theme" and it should be in the root of your memory card together with the "DCIM" folder & the "Music" folder. If you need more help you can leave me your e-mail on the Meebo PM window on the right sidebar and I'll try to help you out.

Hi...first off I LUV UR THEMES...I have a few of ur themes and they r awesome...THANKS!!! my question is this...i used 2 be able 2 download them n save them on my PC but now 4 some reason i cant do it any more. When i click on a theme instead of a zip file i get an "attachment" i have no idea y this is happening. Is there any way u can help me figure this out? Thanks

CubanitaStylez said...

Well it can be several different things. First of all, what browser are you using to download the themes? if you are using Internet Explorer try downloading with Mozilla Firefox and If you are using Firefox try IE. It is possible you accidentally changed a setting on the browser that is not allowing you to download correctly. Does this happen only when you try to download themes or with all the zip files you download? If so, do other file formats download correctly? If is only zip files giving you problem you may need to check the settings on your unzipping utility (winzip, winrar etc.), there are many reasons why you can be having this problem, but I'll need more details to be able to help you out. If you leave me msg on meebo with your e-mail address, I'll get in contact with you directly.

im using IE...and it only happens when i try getting themes off this specific site. when i click on a theme it says the name of the theme..
TYPE: UmxAttachmentFile,
and when i click on save where it says save as: it says .efw Document...
i dont understand or even know what happened when about a month ago i was able 2 get themes in a zipped file and extract them with no problems..plz help

CubanitaStylez said...

Your problem maybe your CA anti virus and spy net software, I read that it converts all your zip files to .efw extentions, if you uninstall it, you should be able to download zip files normally. I'm sure there has to be away to prevent the anti-virus from doing this but I don't have that anti-virus so I wouldn't be able to walk you through it.

Hey, i just got my LX and i've watched at least 5 videos that show me how to put a theme on it. My problem is that when i get to the part where it shows up on the phone, on everyone else's menu it says backgrounds and the themes show up. My phone says themes, and i'm unable to find the theme i just put on the phone. Do you have anny idea whats wrong?

CubanitaStylez said...

The sidekick used to say Backgrounds before but now it says Themes so that's normal. If your themes are not appearing maybe your folder is not named "Themes", it cant be any other name, if your folder is named "Theme" without the "S" it wont work. Also, you cant load themes while your phone is connected to the computer so when you put a theme on your phone disconnect it from the computer first then look for it under Themes.

I downloaded a few of your themes that have custom keyguards, and I can't seem to find a way for the key guards to show up. I've tried selecting the default sidekick keyguard and pressing 1 + @ + 0, it restarts but still no custom key guard.

CubanitaStylez said...

Boogie key guards have to be loaded manually... Click Here for Instructions on How to do it.

I figured out what was wrong, i just had to format my memory card. Now they show up. Thanks for your help.

i have an sidekick 08. every time i am trying to extract the theme to the phone it say's i need to register for winzip. what do i do?/

T-Roy said...

Just made my first theme using your system and I did everything by the book. I dont know how to put it on my sidekick. The video says to extract the theme but do I have to compress mine first or do I just copy it into the themes folder? Thats what I tried first and I copied the KG.jpg into the other folder but still nothing happened. No theme on the list. I was wondering if its becuase I changed it into png format? If not can you help?
