Hi people, you're quite welcome. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/byebye.gif)
ArthurWill: No, this tool is only for Symbian (S60 and ^3) themes. The Series 40 tool hasn't changed; the download link for it is the same as in the first post, one just has to select "Carbide.ui Series 40" from the dropdown menu. It will then install as "Carbide.ui Series 40 5.0" (yes, version numbering for Nokia theming tools went a bit nuts recently (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) ).
Have a good day!
