Do you love themes? Is CrackBerry your #1 site for all things BlackBerry? If you've answered yes to all of these questions, and who wouldn't, then I have some great news for you. Once again the forums and twitter have exploded with the news that drkapprenticeDESIGNS and Lucky45 have taken Mini_Banner_Live, what is one of the best themes (and one of my personal favorites) for OS7 devices, and transformed it into an amazing CrackBerry tribute theme for all of you to enjoy. Some of you out there knew this was coming, if you happened to come across the blink and you'll miss it forums post, but now the wait is finally over. So what are you waiting for, click on the jump to find out more!

Mini Banner Live CB Home Screen

Mini_Banner_Live CrackBerry Tribute Edition has all the original features that made the original Mini_Banner_Live so special including the incredible animation in the top banner. Only this time instead of little BlackBerry logos, we have different variations of the CrackBerry logo and boy do they look good scrolling across the screen. Our own orange and purple color scheme is used throughout (even in the battery and signal meters) and the CB logo also appears as a new icon message indicator. Just remember that when using the animation shortcuts you have universal search turned off and application shortcuts turned on. Then, just place your cursor at the top and press one of the shortcuts to get the party started!

Features

  • Focus clock banner
  • Scrolling Animated Banner - hold ALT, click D, W, or R to start the animation
  • ESCAPE to stop the animation
  • Banner glows red on new email & missed call notifications
  • Mini Banner for wallpaper lovers

As always drkapprenticeDESIGNS and @_Lucky45 have done an outstanding job and have put together one hawt looking theme. When these guys come together you know you are getting a solid theme that runs smoothly. Not only does it look absolutely gorgeous on my Bold 9900 but it's chock full of CrackBerry goodness to help satisfy your fix all day long. There's no battery drain to speak of, though if you're worried about the animation you can easily stop it by pressing the escape key. Although, I never get tired of seeing the CB logo fly by on my display.

This is an absolute must for your device so there is no question of if you should get it. CrackBerry tribute theme is FREE to download and can be found at the links below. Right now it's compatible with the 99xx and 9810 running OS7/7.1. The 9850/60 is coming so stay tuned to the forums to see when it's ready.

You forgot to say that they make everyone else who refuses to "hand-code" for OS7 (choosing instead to wait for a new TB thats not coming and complaining about it daily) look ridiculous.

CB theme looks nice.
As usual, no love for OS6. Is it really that much different than OS7 with regards to theme building?

DrkApprentice and Lucky 45 are the BEST ! They did what RIM couldn't or didn't want to do by making themes for OS7, and a few other developers have since done the same !
Congrats guys !!

They have done it again.....and for FREE, this is a must have theme for all Crackberians. A job well done gentleman......it doesn't get to much better than this :).

I guess 9700 is too old? But again it is not very old considering how many models RIM released since? I think the 9900 will be the latest model forever. LOL.

Lucky is one of the best theme builders there is PERIOD. But for my now i have a 9790 so please luck 9790 for us folks. we are a few but we still deserve this goodness :-) great work

For some reason I kept getting an error code when trying to download it. But after doing a reboot it worked 1st try. So if anyone else is having this problem that's what worked for me.

LUCKY45, LOVE THE APP MINI BANNER LIVE. AND THIS ONE,TOO AND ITS FREE. WOW.! THANKS.. WISH HE CAN CREATE MORE APPS. GOOD JOB GUYS..

Love this theme! Skinned throughout all the main screens. What's the best thing about it? True crackberry color scheme is awesome! Media player skin is amazingly layed out and totally responsive. This is what a true theme should be like. Everyone with a torch 9810 has to get this!

Only 26 comments on this?!?! I'm embarrassed.....this theme absolutely rocks, the developers spent a lot of personal time to create it and it's FREE!!! C'mon Crackberrians, show some appreciation!

Im still loving this theme although i dont have it on my 9790 guys show your appreciation here and in the forums for people who help keep these kind of thing going.
 drkapprenticeDESIGNS and @_Lucky45 Thank you for a professtional theme thats ROCKIN!!!!!!!!!!!
