BlackBerry Theme: Illustrious

Here’s another one from, yet again, the only person I theme from, Cami!

She calls this one “Illustrious”. I call it “Fckn Awesome!”

Don’t judge my wallpaper. The babe hates this picture, I however feel it captures all of our magic in one shot. Anyway, Cam decided to go with the smaller, low dock instead of the standard 5.0 dock which I’m loving. Shadow overlay and one thing that’s a constant in her themes, lack of the standard battery bar. To compensate, I got what she uses since it’s far more accurate than standard BlackBerry meter, BatteryEX which is free and can be found here.

Cool background within the menu, with a nice shadow overlay and this time she decided to go with a subtle blue, as opposed to the common red. I love red/blk theming but this subtle blue is dopetastic if I do say so myself. A bit of font styling, but not too much done otherwise, which I like!

Best part for me: OS 6 icons (you should know how I feel about these).

There’s more to this theme, and more themes from Cami to explore. But don’t take my word for it. Check her out on her blog, Cami’s Theme Rehab or to just go straight to this theme, Illustrious.

BlackBerry Theme: Covet

I’m not too big on theme’s to be honest with you, because I feel that many people don’t do them correctly. Sure they have the concept, but some things just don’t look good, or at least don’t look good to me. I don’t get themes from many people. In fact, in the past few months I have only gotten themes from one person, Cami.

If you remember my older BlackBerry tutorial videos for BlackBerry Empire’s YouTube channel, then you remember seeing the cool and original theme, CamiStacked Red/Blk. A simple change of wallpaper is all I did to it, which I always do, regardless of how cool it may be. I like my wallpaper to be personal.

This morning I decided that stock 5.0 wasn’t doing it for me. I go into my Twitter application and she tweets, so I visit and download and here it is, my new theme via Cami, called “Covet”.

The first thing I notice and am a bit fond of is the sleek shadow overlay.

Something else I love in themes, Today scheme. I love to be able to see my calender just by hovering.

One of the coolest things, even though she seems to not be too fond of it, OS 6.0 icons.

And just a quick shot of the custom send/receive in the BBM window. This is also custom in SMS/Email.

Overall, I give this theme a 5 out of 5. I haven’t run into any glitches, but then again I usually don’t when using her themes. The color scheme in this is red/black. I’m not sure if she will put it out in other colors, but either way, I’d say it’s still a must have and is compatible with the 9700, 96xx and my 8900 as well.
