Take A Screenshot of Your s40 Phone

Screenshot is important for a theme maker. Screenshot has function to display the theme that we have created so it can make other people interested in our theme. Generally, Website that provide free themes like eseth.net, tekhseven.net and mobile9.com also require the uploader to include screenshot of their themes. Taking screenshots s60 phone is easy, but for s40 phones is a bit difficult.

But now we can do it easily with Nokia Screen Dumper, a simple software to take a screenshot of your s40 phone. Just follow these simple steps :

  1. Download Nokia Screen Dumper : http://www.mediafire.com/?naezioznz6zh9sd

  3. Run Nokia Screen Dumper.

  5. Back to Nokia Screen Dumper, choose : File – Connect (a pop up box will appear notify that connection is succeeded)

    Hello Udjo42

    I wanted to start creating themes for Nokia C3 😉

    I Installed ‘Carbide.ui Theme Edition Series 40 5.0’ and ‘Carbide_ui_Series_40_6th_Edition_Compact_UI_Plug_in_v1_1_en’ but the resolution in the program is still 240×320, You know what I mean? I do not see the screen with c3 (320×240), but 240×320 😉

    You too are working on this resolution?


  6. Hi! Don’t you know any application that captures the screen on the go? Without the USB and such? Thanks!
