Normally what you need to do is to launch apploader.exe from the BlackBerry Desktop Manager installation directory while your BlackBerry is connected to desktop via a USB cable. Once you installed the new themes you will need to reboot the Pearl. After the device is back, you can set the new theme to be your current theme.
