Thursday saw some exciting leaks as BlackBerry OS was leaked online. Now, this may not mean much for you if you don't have a Torch 2 9850 or Bold Touch 9930 (because as you know, they're unreleased as of now and technically just rumored to exist) but some of the elements of this leak have proven to be useful. Not only were some of the native apps extracted, but the actual icons from the OS are now available if you know where to get them.

Now, while you may not be able to have OS 6.1 yet on your device, BBThemes has made it so it at least looks like you do! Burning the midnight oil last night, they have now released Six dot X, the closest thing to BlackBerry OS 6.1 you can have on your device at this time. Combining the actual icons from the leaked OS, not replicas, and the BB6 interface, this is the first theme of its kind and it looks so nice on my Torch! The theme runs smoothly and is very responsive and quick. If you're anxiously waiting for OS 6.1, this may help tide you over for a bit. Currently Six dot X is available for all BlackBerry smartphones running BB6 (9800, 9780, 9700, 9670, 9650, 93xx and 91xx) with OS 5.0 devices coming in the very near future. You can pick this theme up for $1.99. Heck, maybe you can fool your friends into thinking you have OS 6.1 installed while you're at it! **Update: You can now pick this up for your 9700, 9650, 9630, and 8900 on OS5. **

Six dot X for BlackBerry by BBThemes


I downloaded and personally I love it. A few things need to be addressed like the gps symbol being cut off on the homescreen banner and the everything i s cut short on the applications least on my 9650. I believe these are Theme Studio 6 quirks. One thing I'd love to see is the blue/light blue email colors similar to the Playbook.

yes those are sadly TB6 beta bugs, as soon as theres a new TB6 out we`ll (hopefully) be able to resolve these issues (they are in every OS6 ui theme sadly)

would you update this theme to correct these issues once there's a possible fix? would I have to pay again or would it really depend on how much of a re-work it is? (I haven't bought a theme before)

Looks great, love the subtle changes to the quality icons found on the standard os5/os6 devices and if my g/f allows me, I want to put this on her torch! Shame there's no 9000 version :)

yes we will update when fix is available. updates will be FREE.
9000 OS5 version coming in a few hours too :)

Downloaded. I already love it.

Its hard for me to use themes on my Torch just because I love the original so much.
Since this is just the new icons its perfect.

Just downloaded the theme. Love the look! Seems a lot more "classy" than the base OS6 theme that I had.

Great work on the theme build!

OS5 versions now available for 9700 96xx 93xx 8900 and 85xx.

features 12 icon sliding dock, screenshots will be up shortly in the store

Installed this on my 9780 - first theme I've had in ages and I'm digging it. Nice to have some color in the icons. Excellent theme!!

Icons that need to be updated:

BlackBerry App World
Social Feeds
Magnifying Glass Icon (on the Home Screen - Top Right)

I hope when they update the theme, users who bought it can get the free update. Thanks!

hi there, its worth doing a battery pull as the calendar icon and social feeds icons are changed but sometimes need a battery pull to show properly. sadly we cant skin the appworld icon.

Oh yea, I almost forgot to reset the device. I'll reset it now.

Also, it's the first theme I bought. I never fancy the custom themes, I'd prefer the stock OS6 theme, plus you guys added the OS6.1 icons which matches every 3rd party app icons! Great job!!! Worth every single penny! :)

Got the Calendar and Social Feeds icons refreshed. :) Are you guys planning to update all the icons anytime soon? Those in the subfolders?

This theme is one of the best I've seen. I love the rich color of the icons. I will agree that there are some tweaks to be made , but for $1.99 you can't beat it. Nice Work

It's the perfect theme for me. Full color/3D icons that matches the 3rd party apps icons, OS6 theme, plus a dark wallpaper! Simply GREAT!!!

Well I bought it. But its been close to 30 mins and havent received an order confirmation. Replied back to the email with a phone number for someone to verify and still nothing.


Yeah I dont expect to hear back at least until tomorrow sometime. Pathetic.
Ahh well, not wasting my time again buying from here no more. Will just stick with app world I guess.

hey all, seems mobihand emails have been a bit slow coming out, either drop me an email thru the support link on the theme listing page, or ya could download the CB mobile app which allows you to login and see all your purchases, its very easy. either way we`ll get ya sorted :)

I didn't see the free one here on Crackberry. Maybe you were viewing the postings of it under the theme section....

The e-mail icon isn't updating for some reason. I've deleted the e-mail account and re-added and also done multiple battery pulls.

hi there, if you have a gmail/yahoo/hotmail email then the individual email box wont skin due to the plugins used on these icons (you`ll notice they arent standard email icons to start) sadly as theme builder indentifies these as 3rd partyu icons we dont have access to skin them, this is sadly the same on all themes :(

Love this theme!!! Great Job BBThemes!!!

P.s: you'll have to do a hard reset on you device after installing this theme so the rest of the icons (default) have the new os6.1 icons :)
