Bold Theme: The Ocho

I put a fair amount of effort into this one and tried out a few new ideas, please let me know what you think.

  • 8 user configurable icons
  • The top 2 icons are shown on the lockscreen
  • Today area with 1 line for new messages and 3 lines for calendar appointments
  • The time is actually a hidden icon and when selected opens your alarm/timers
  • Scroll up from the time to select the battery/signal area which is actually a hidden icon for Manage Connections

Here are some screenshots, click on them to see them full size.

Download the theme file below.

Desktop Install:  The Ocho

OTA Install:  The Ocho

Note: For installation instructions see the very bottom of the page.

Yes, it's really cool but to be perfect needs the today hidden version with font a little bigger

FYI - The "Manage my Connections" icon is invisible.

Great theme, the best I have used so far. Thanks

You do great work, your choice of colors and fonts are similar to what I have done on my own. Is there any chance you could convert/adapt your Bold Themes to 8900 Themes?

I have been using the OCHO on my Bold since you released. This is the best theme I have ever used.

I am about to get a BB8900 Javelin; any chance that you will do the OCHO for the 8900 anytime soon?

Thank you

Great theme, are you prepared to let a trade secret out and tell me how you made the time an icon as well.

Love the Ocho. Only theme I use now. Thanks for all the hard work. If you happen to make another one similar to this, would you consider building it with your custom battery and signal meters on the sides?

Hey there,

This is another great theme from you.

Question for you, with blackberry messenger: I have font size 7 with MillBank Tall. Now, when I look at this messenger with this theme on I noticed the two line display which shows the individuals name and there status ie:

Persons Name
is typing a message


Persons Name
Received: 19:04:32

Half of the second line seems to be cut off.

I'm on a Blackberry Bold 9000 with OS
