    How to backup/restore themes in Symbian v.9.x based devices?

    Themes files that are installed to the private folder of Skin Server are backed up/restored as a part of Skin Server private data. But if you want to make it visible in Application Manager and uninstall it after restore, this requires additional steps:

    1- You need to create "backup_registration.xml" that has "system_backup" tag. The following is a sample content:

    <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
    <backup_registration>
    <system_backup/>
    <restore requires_reboot = "no"/>
    </backup_registration>


    2- You need to update .pkg file and add the following line. <package UID> is your themes package UID.

    "backup_registration.xml" - "!:\private\10202D56\import\packages\<package UID>\backup_registration.xml"

    e.g.

    "backup_registration.xml" - "!:\private\10202D56\import\packages\a0000555\backup_registration.xml"

    Re: How to backup/restore themes in Symbian v.9.x based devices?

    Hello, I have noticed that many people have problems with themes installation for Nokia N73, I've experienced the same problems but I managed to uninstall those themes by deleting them from the memory card using my phone as "Mass Storage" device, but the themes remain on the log in App.Manager and if you try to reinstall them you get the message "unable to install file".I was wondering is there a way to clear the log so that the theme can be reinstalled? I have installed a file browser (Y-Browser) but I cannot manage to find the logfile...any suggestions???
    Thanks!

    I'm having the same problems as dinovlad... is there a solution to this? can the logfile or whatever is preventing themes being re-installed be edited? Is doing my head in.
