The Extensions plug-in package for S60 3rd Edition SDK contains the  Personalization and Skin Setting API with the Central Repository key for controlling the current color scheme.
However, changing the value of this key does not have any effect because UI color schemes are not supported in S60 3rd Edition.

How to reproduce

#include <centralrepository.h>
#include <AknSkinsInternalCRKeys.h>
CRepository* cenRep = CRepository::NewLC( KCRUidPersonalisation );
TInt value = 0; // 0: Nokia "Classic" blue
//Try to change the color scheme
User::LeaveIfError( cenRep->Set( KPslnColorPalette, value ) );
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // cenRep
