How To Install Theme In Samsung Star 3G?

Hello All,
This post of mine is very brief.. I am currently very busy with my work, so hardly get time to maintain my blog. Anyways THE WHOLE CREDIT FOR THIS GOES TO DARKFOREST & HIS TEAM FOR THEIR DEDICATION & HARD WORK. The below content is straight extract from them mail sent by Darkforest to me.I'll be adding the proper steps later on (ie with the picture & all).
Before we start, like always TAKE BACKUP OF YOU PHONE. IF YOU SCREW UP IN THE PROCESS NEITHER I OR DARKFOREST WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.!!!!!

Now thats all clear.. then just follow the below steps. (The below is the extract from the mail sent by Darforest)


This is the nv_original.ini file you will need, taken from XEII4 firmware download it.
4shared.com/file/146853253/f5f85cf1/nv_original.html

This file will need to replace the one located in the " Baltic " folder on your phone.

I have added the lines that needed to activate dark theme (black theme), so you just have to transfer the file .

steps for this method -->

connect your phone and start tk file explorer

open systemFS --> settings --> preconfiguration --> Baltic --> NV --> put this file there.

to put this file ... you can see two windows in tk file ..... just on the upper window go wherever you have this file and drag down in the NV folder of Baltic

After this close tkfile..... and disconnect phone.

Do preconfig on the phone

dial *#6984125*# --> Pre-connfiguration --> *#73561*# -- > select Baltic.

Your phone will restart and the new theme will be active.

*Note...
But if you change the theme to red or green, it will be gone, you will need to do the Pre-configuration again to see it.
So if you like it don't change it back to green or red

Navy said...

@khizar:
can u explain wat u exactly did to get this theme working?

PREY said...

khizar said...

@Navy
I just followed the steps and instead of BALTIC folder i copied that file in DEFAULT folder. That's it.

Navy said...

@khizar:
thks for the prompt reply.
there is another folder called "NV" inside "default" folder.
the "NV" folder contains a file called "nv_default.ini"
did u overwrite this file?

khizar said...

@Navy
systemFS --> settings --> preconfiguration --> Baltic --> NV --> put this file there
u wont find any file here. the folder will be empty.

Navy said...

@khizar:
but as i already mentioned earlier there is no Baltic folder in my phone.

khizar said...

@Navy
ok instead of baltic install it in default
Phone --> systemFS --> settings --> preconfiguration --> Default --> NV --> put this file there
ull find "nv_default.ini" file in
Phone --> Settings --> Default --> NV
these two folders are totally different.....

@khizar:
worked like a gem.
thks for the help.

Navy said...

Those who dont have baltic folder in their phones, follow these steps:
1. go to (using TKexplorer):
Phone --> systemFS --> settings --> preconfiguration --> Default --> NV -->

2. this folder should be empty.
copy the file: "nv_original.ini"
in this folder.

3. dial *#6984125*# (in keypad) --> Pre-configuration --> *#73561*# -- >
here u should find a "default" option.

4.click on install, the phone will restart and ur new theme is installed.

this worked well from me.
hope it works for u too.

hw do i hve to conect my phone...through wich means...cz i dnt see any systemFS folder...pls help..

j@ff3r said...

good work friend.....i followed the instructions on your blog and installed the TKFileExplorer and my phone got connected. I tried installed few games (which has both .jar and .jad files respectively) but seems to be having the same problem as few others, where only .jad file is getting downloaded to the phone (i believe so...), coz, when i open this game on my phone, its giving an error, Java Error. Invalid Format and the size of that game is just around 2 kb on the phone. I tried the Lite FTP alternative, one game got installed fine with that, but I got a question, If GPRS is not active on my phone, will i still be able to use Lite FTP application?

Any updates on the above will be appreciated.....if its not much of a trouble for you, please email me your thoughts to jafferq@in.com.

Thanks.

thank you very much. i followed the instructions. i don't have baltic folder as well so what i did is chose the folder where i am located (e.g. belgium) and it worked. thanks, dude.

Raphael said...

I am failing to connect my Samsung star GT-S5233A in TkFileExplorer_2.2.exe. Sometimes I see the com ports and sometimes I don't. If I choose a com port and try to connect, I get an error saying the link will be lost. When I don't see a com port I try to type it in but it doesn't help. Please help me if you can. That would be greatly appreciated. Raphael raphaelc@iasystems.co.za or rchibota@gmail.com. Thanks
