Black Berry Pearl

13 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I have seen alot of people that have this phone have the different colors for the scrolling ball.

How do they get that?

Most that I've seen and read about are popping the ball out and coloring the ball with a pen.

I also found that there is a multi-color LED behind the ball on Pearls, and someone wrote an application that you install on the Pearl where you can select which color you want to illuminate.

This app only works if you have an 8100 Pearl. It will not work with the 8110, 8120, or 8130 since they do not have the polychromatic trackball.

If you have the 4.5 operating system on the Pearl, there is an app called "Blingball" that you can download and install.

"colorpearl" is another app that might work if you have an older OS such as 4.2 or 4.3.

Oh, if you can't find an Over The Air (OTA) link to download directly to your Pearl you'll have to download the regular file to your PC, and then use the Blackberry Desktop Manager software to transfer it to the Pearl.

If you're lucky you'll find the OTA link and then you can just use the phone's browser to go to that HSOforum and download it right from there.

B'N'S - You first need to find out what OS you have on your phone.

Click the BB Button > Options > About

It will say v4.5.x.x. or you may be on v4.2.x.x

If you have version 4.2 or 4.3 you will need to locate the Colorpearl app mentioned above, otherwise if you are running version 4.5 you can download the "Blingball" App OTA (Over The Air) from your BB by going to

troybrownpc.com\Blingball.jad

Click YES to Download and you should be all set. Whenever doing something like this, it is imperative that you make a backup first to CYA! I know the rules about links, but I couldnt think of any other way to help you out other than that lol?!

Yes you do have to do the ColorPearl then. I installed it on my wifeys BB last night and it works great. You can go to Download . com and search for it there. What I had to do was download the ZIP file first seeing as she doesnt have Internet and then Install it using BB Desktop Manager.

B-N-S - I cant find your email addy.

Shoot me an email at jakesbuds @ gmail . com and I will send you the 2 files needed to upload to your phone. You have to use Desktop Manager to do it, you do have that correct? The files are only 3.5KB so they are very small.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
