tools:
1. motoskin
2. any photoediting tool (photoshop, corel, etc.)

process:
1. create a folder on your desktop "new skin"
2. open motoskin
3. open scarlet/neon skin (or any skin)
4. choose wallpaper
5. relocate date, time, clock, operator, icons to suit yor needs (drag and drop)
6. add images (sotkeys etc.)
-softkeys: 78*22, middle: 20*22

**once front page is done, here comes the tedious part:

1. using image explorer..
2. click image 0005
3. "download" image to "new skin"folder
4. open photoshop
5. open "image 0005"
6. make your edits (using 0005 as a template)
7. save for web .gif
8. go back to motoskin and replace image 0005 with edited one.
9. so on, so forth....
10. save .ski with new name. .dat will automatically be created

how to change the font colors of a skin

(IMG:http://img465.imageshack.us/img465/7236/skiexplorer5ax.jpg)


*download ski explorer 2.0 (google)

1. open a .ski

2. on the left side box, browse through every single item. items that begin with the no.4 usually denotes a color.

3. the right side box is a description of the item highlighted on the left side box. there a some blanks because moto has a value for every single item on the phone, and the prog author can only identify so much.

4. once an item (color value) is selected on the left side box, change the color by clicking the box.

5. save .ski (keeping the same filename)

*tips:
-make sure you make a duplicate of the .ski file youre working on, because once youve made changes to the colors within the .ski, it is almost impossible to revert back to the original.

-this process is mostly "trial and error"/"hit and miss". if you are going to dabble in color changing, try to stay in the same brightness ie. when changing a black value, changing to a very dark color as well.

Sorry to here about your difficulties. Try this link for a great many P2K tools downloads. In their downloads section there's a P2K tools category. These might help you uploading themes. Take care whatever you do.

@tzifos: Try connecting it to P2K but without your SIM card. See if it works. :)

Is there any way to create or import new skins without having to hack it and void the warranty? Like I see there's a WAP setting but I don't know what that is, would it void the warranty using that instead? There's just got to be a way of doing it without messing up the phone.
