Storm portrait/landscape icon bug fix in Theme Studio 5

There are many annoying bugs in BlackBerry Theme Studio 5 and one of them is the problem with the portrait / landscape tab and focus icons for Storm / Storm 2 themes. The tab and focus icons seem to get stuck somehow and won't change no mater what you do. We had this problem for a while now and BlackBerry doesn't seem in the mood for releasing a fix for this and other bugs and problems. But here is something that might help some of you. It is not the ideal solution but it works.
What we are going to do is to change the built in images that Theme Stuio uses for the creation of the tab and focus icon located in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0\samples\Themes\Images\Precision360x480\icons\

or  if you are using XP

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0\samples\Themes\Images\Precision360x480\icons\

The name of the icons are: icon.png and icon_landscape.png for the tab icons along with icon_focus.png and icon_landscape_focus.png for the focus images. Now, I guess you already have focus and tab images made for your theme. So rename them with the names above and copy them in the folder. Don't remember to backup the original images because you never know when you will need them.
Now it is time to change the precision360x480.thm theme file for the Storm / Storm 2 load the file which is located in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0\resources\theme\precision360x480\precision360x480.thm


or  if you are using XP

C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Theme Studio 5.0\resources\theme\precision360x480\precision360x480.thm


Change the icons of the tab and focus icons both for portrait and landscape mode by clicking "Reset to Default" and "Reload" next to each icon. Save the changes and you are done. Now open your theme and click the "Reset to Default" and "Reload" next to each icon that has been stuck and with a little luck you are ready to go.

It is also possible if you are not as lucky as some, just like us that this will not fix the stuck tab icon in your theme and you will have to create your theme from scratch using the modified files. But hey it sure works at some level.

Also if you are using Vista or Windows 7 change the icons folder permissions so that the logged in user has full rights over the files. Click "Edit" next to the icon you want and update it in PhotoShop or Gimp. Save the icon and click the "Reload" option.
