    Did u download the R4 skins..??

    First of all, go to _system_ on the root of your microsd
    Make a folder called themes
    Make 12 folders inside (only twelve) and label them

    theme01
    theme02
    ...
    ...
    theme12

    In one of the theme folders, put the files you downloaded in here.. (logo, bckrd1, bckrd2 and icons)

    You can fill all of these folders up, but no more than 12, (I dont know why) Has something to do with the months.. [​IMG]

    Boot up your r4 to the main screen and press select.. Ta Da!!

    It should work..

    But make sure you get R4 or M3 Simply skins.. [​IMG]

    also they have to be .bmp format

    and if you just want one theme you just go to _system_ and put them in there but if you want multiple themes just follow curlys directions

    The root is actually the very directory of the microSD. Just go and look for a folder labeled _system_ or something. >_

    Hey.

    First of all, this is my first post on this forum!

    Second of all, I just started to get interested in getting more out of my R4. I jst got new skins and think thats already cool.

    Now, my question is: can you fix your own photos as a skin on the R4?

    I fixed the files as a Bitmap file, and tried to give it a name like 'logo' or bckgrnd_1.

    Yet, this doesnt work. Can someone tell me how to do this?
