Carbide.ui Theme Edition is a free tool for creating, editing, and packaging themes for Nokia Belle, Anna, Symbian^3, Symbian 5th edition and Symbian Series 40. It allows you to create custom UI by altering the look and feel or sound of customizable UI components.
Theme components are display and sound items that can be customized to build a graphical UI or emit sounds initiated by certain actions or events on the device.
Carbide.ui provides all the tools needed to create a theme but it does not include tools to create the graphics or sounds used to customize components. To create graphics and sounds you need to use third-party bitmap editors, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) editors, and audio editors.
Note: Changing a device theme only changes the look and feel of the UI (User interface). It does not changes the functions and features of the phone.
