Ayofe Theme for Symbian S60v3

This theme has been designed to run on Symbian Series 60 3rd Edition. It's been tested using the Nokia N95 but should run on any Symbian S60v3 handset. As long as the screen resolution is 240x320, otherwise everything will be blown out of proportion.

All the elements exist of vectors and have been made using Illustrator. It's my very first theme ever. I do plan on releasing an updated version with an additional wallpaper but for now this will have to do :p

Credits go to the following people:

-Gerrit Vanoppen (designer of the original Ayofe visual style)

-Xcaliber & Gerrit (for designing the original icons)

-FOURimpressions [link] (creator of the Aerolove background which has been recreated as a vector in the theme)

But most of all, thanks to my girlfriend kjherstin ;)


<03 July> A few things have been fixed/improved and the input highlight (the search box) has been skinned now.

<08 July> A lot of standard icons, found in newer S60v3 phones, weren't listed in Nokia's theme studio. These have now been added manually as 'third party icons' and have also been themed.

<11 July> Some minor changes such as the way passive tabs appear in landscape mode.

<15 October> Carbide.ui 3.2 allows the calculator buttons to be themed so these have been done now. A bug/glitch with the tabs has been fixed as well.

is there anyway we can port it to 320X240? can we do anything to help?
eggy's avatar
Well, simply porting it won't be easy. It probably isn't fully compatible with the latest version of Symbian to begin with. Porting it to 320x240 won't be so easy... I never had a 320x240 Symbian phone myself and if anyone would port my theme, I would rather do it myself I'm afraid... At least that way I can vouch for the quality.

Just brilliant work! I hope you'll not mind if I will create exactly the same job for symbian 9.4? :)

You'll have to ask the original creators of the Ayofe theme and icons (see the description) for permission, not me. I wouldn't like it if you would make an exact copy of my theme, however...

My screen is 240x320 but when i try to instal your theme it says that the certificate is out of date. Do you know what i have to do?

Thank you, I really like your theme :)

There's some minor glitches in the theme. First of all since i have 4 rows of icons in the menu, those uppermost icons are above that squared line, same thing happens when you're writing a message. The text is partly above that line. Otherwise it's a great theme.

I wanted to release a version with an alternative background, since it's impossible to avoid issues like these with the current one. If it won't look strange on one phone it will on another. Carbide.ui is quite an annoying app in that aspect, on your phone the theme never looks the way it does in the application.

I never finished this second version due to some personal matters though. On top of that, I'm not currently using Windows either so I can't even run Carbide at the moment.

you should credit "heylove" too, since she has created the shaded-iconset which you get obviously "inspired" from...
