    Red face how to create an s40 theme with carbide.ui ??

    hi everyone,
    I've never used carbide before, or created my own theme. I've downloaded carbide.ui and tried to create a new theme, but its an s60 and I can't figure out how to create a new s40 theme.

    this will be for a nokia 6275i.

    so how do I create a new s40 theme?

    Any suggestions or replies are appreciated, thanks!

    - At the beginning, go to File --> "Create New Theme" and select "Series 40 Theme" in the "Use default theme based on" menu.

    - Click "Finish" and create your theme just as you like it.

    - When you're finished, select "Tools --> Create New Package" and make sure that the checkbox for "Series 40 Theme v2.0" is activated in the "Target version" menu.

    Should you encounter the "nasty blue bars at the top and bottom of my title screen" problem, check this post for help.

    Hi sobri,

    themes for 6230i can't be done with CarbideUI.
    Instead you need the ancient Theme Studio 1.2.
    See post #6 in this thread for help.

    Question How to create an s40 theme with carbide.ui ??

    I'm using Carbide 3.3 for creating themes. I can understand size as (width × height). But what does this mean?

    Bounds: [2,162,236,130]

    OR anything like

    Bounds: [w, x, y, z] ???

    Sorry if i'm asking a dumb question, but I'm new at this!

    Exclamation Re: how to create an s40 theme with carbide.ui ??

    hi, i just download carbide ui 3.3 and try to make theme to my nokia 5310.

    Overall it good, it can changed icon. The only problem when i apply into my handset, no picture and icon come out.

    To developer, is it automatically resize a picture and icon or i have to resize it manually?

    Thank you

    Hello azsh07,

    this could be a theme version problem.
    When you create a theme package, select "Series 40 Theme v3.0" as target platform.
    (The target platform is set to "Series 40 Theme v3.0 light" by default, and that's not the correct setting for a 5310. When you transfer a "light" theme to a 5310, the phone will show folder icons with a question mark on them instead of the images you used.)
