Reads like much new stuff to play around with. cool.gif Happy theming!
That's so cool... clapping.gif You are always first here.. notworthy.gif
Thanks for the update BB! Does it finally support creating Nokia Series 40 6th Edition 320px X 240px themes? unsure.gif
Thanks alot BB notworthy.gif
Thanks BB
Hi people, you're quite welcome. 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 wacko.gif).
Have a good day!
