How do I Make Nokia C3 Themes?

Since I started making themes for Nokia C3, many people ask how do I make these themes. Most people find the same problem, they can not find an option for 320×240 screen in the software even carbide. It is not yet available plugins for 320 x 240 screen although in fact already available plugin for Nokia C3, ie Plugins Compact. This is probably because Nokia C3 runs on Series 40 Java operating systems sixth edition and the only phone with a 320 x 240 screen that runs on these operating systems.

So what is the solution to that problem?

If you notice I always put a credit to Joelke on my themes. This is because I learned how to make a theme from Joelke. When I asked how he made the theme, the answer impressed me. He said he did not use any software, which he did just change each element one by one manually and edit the file ‘theme.xml’. This method can be applied to solve our problems in creating themes for Nokia C3. And now I will explain in detail the steps I did in creating themes.


To create a theme we need the following tools:

  1. Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition, A tool for creating S40 theme, you can download it here, YOU MUST BE REGISTERED AT TO DOWNLOAD THIS TOOL.
  2. Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition Compact UI Plugins, Plugins for Nokia C3, you can download it here [UPDATE LINK @]
  3. Image/graphic editing Software (I use photoshop)
  4. Other tools are depending on your needs.

Install Carbide

After you download Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition, install it on your PC and run the application, before you start making themes, you must install the Compact Plugin first.

Install the Compact Plugins, choose Windows – Preferences, choose Plugin-Management. Install the plugin by clicking the add button and search for the Compact plugin that you have downloaded before.

Now you are ready to make Nokia C3 theme just like me :).

Basic Steps

I’ll make this easy and simple for you, I’ve create a theme template including Project files that can easily import into carbide. You can download the template at or Once you’ve downloaded it, extract it using winzip, an then just follow the steps below

  1. Open Carbide
  2. Choose File – Create New Theme, or simly just choose Create Theme on the Welcome screen.

  3. Give a name for your theme, then choose Copy an existing theme and click Browse button.

  4. Find the ‘theme.xml‘ file, it is located inside the C3 Template folder that you have extracted before and hit open.

  5. Hit the finish button, and now you have my Nokia C3 theme template imported into carbide.

  6. Make sure you change the plugin inti Compat plugin. Because, if you con’t change the plugin, the theme won’t work well.

  7. Now you can start creating theme, don’t worry about the display, even it’s in 240×340 instead 320×240, it doesn’t matter, because I’ve created this template with precision for Nokia C3.
  8. When you finish, package the theme by choosing Tools – Create New Package.

Hint : Quick Steps

Just follow da rules 😀

  1. Download my Theme Template here and extract it.
  2. You will find a Theme called “C3 Template.nth”, change the file extension into “C3” and extract it.
  3. Now You will find some images which are the elements of the theme. You can modify these elements as necessary, according to your needs.
  4. When finished, import the theme into carbide just like the way I’ve described earlier.
  5. Use carbide to change the fonts colour and improvements.

So this is the end of this tutorial, I hope this tutorial can be useful for anyone who wants to make a theme like me. If you encounter difficulties and need help, please send an email to me or leave a comment on this post. I will help you as much as possible.

  1. Udhjo nice tutorial bro good work. But I don’t know why you edit theme.xml. this step is not required for making the theme, I m not edit any .xml file. However, good tutorial for beginners. Keep it up.

    • Thanks zayed, I’m not editing the theme.xml. right now, but actually Joelke did it, he doesn’t use carbide or any software to make hi themes, he said he only change the element and edit the theme.xml file manually :D. Btw your new theme with flashlite is awesome, and may I post about how to make digital clock just like u’ve taugh me in this blog?

      • Yes bro why not… You doing good job… keep it up. Now I m working Cricket World Cup 2011 theme, now my idea is that, I want to make this theme with 4 different color wallpaper and every hour show different wallpaper in home screen, and I also want to add countdown, not hour , minutes and seconds countdown, just add how many days left to WC2011. And when world cup started then I show the current match day schedule in user home screen 😉

        For example: 19 Feb 2011; home screen show like this:
        TODAY MATCH:
        India vs Bangladesh – 0830 GMT…

        What do you think about this idea? But its required more work… 🙂

      • wow, you are an expert :D, could you help me again? or may be you can make a flashlite wallpaper that will show Day and night, and it’ll change base on the time, Example, 06.00, the sun start rise, 12.00 the sun is on the top, 18.00 the sun set, 19.00 the moon appear, 😀

      • paavo

        Have another question haha 😉

        PS. Of course I mean this on number ten 😉

        Now I finish a theme, send it to You soon 😉

  10. jeremije11

    i made theme as you say and imported my pictures but now when i go save as i only save pictures i cant make theme even if i change name of my project into .thm… either i cant make theme which i can open with my c3 whhat to do?? =(

    • I’m sorry my friend, somehow I cannot understand what are you trying to say. Just do these steps:

      1. Change the image inside “C3 TEMPLATE” folder as like as you want, but DON’T CHANGE THE NAME
      2. Open CARBIDE, choose OPEN THEME -> SELECT A THEME FROM ANOTHE LOCATION, and find the “theme.xml” that located INSIDE the “C3 TEMPLATE”
      3. That’s it you have you theme inside CARBIDE, you can edit the font colours etc as like as you want.
      4. When you finish, to create anew theme, choose : TOOLS -> CREATE NEW PACKAGE

  11. Great tutorial for beginners.Clearly explained.Keep it up

  12. Hi! Thank you for the tutorial! Such a great help. I know this is off-topic but can I ask if you know some application for screenshot/screencapture for Nokia C3? I badly need it.. Please 😦

  13. Really nicely explained here, I’m new to this theme development so I played around with carbide and created a theme I tried out on a Nokia C3 without having to install a new plugin. but some icons cant be changed. But following your instructions I get stumped when I try to open the sample theme, it keeps throwing an error ‘error loading theme, element “editor” must be declared’. could it be my version of Carbide.ui? its Carbide.ui 3.4 theme edition?

  14. Noahline

    Hi Udjo42, How can i change icons color such as gallery,apps coz when am through with the theme,my icons appear faded….i even downloaded your blackberry icons and experienced the same problem.

  56. Jerry

    Hello, I already dowloaded :1.Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition, 2.Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition Compact UI Plugins (6th Edition (Compact UI) V 1.1 (3 Mb)). I already have Adobe photoshop. When I wanted to start the program, it’s not working. It always show the Carbide logo design and suddenly closes. When I wanted to open the eclipse app., A message show that :A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations: C:\Program Files\Nokia\Carbide.ui Series 40 Theme Edition 5.0\Eclipse\jre\bin\javaw.exe
    javaw.exe in your current PATH.
    But a JRE folder is already there. Do I also need to download JDK or something else. Please answer and help me. Thanks!

    • I’m not sure bout ur problem because I never had a ploblem like yours before, perhaps u need ti install Java in ur computer, try uninstalling the carbide cleanly use ccleaner, then install it again

      • Jerry

        I’ve downloaded the java and deleted all the the contents of carbide.Then, I’ve downloaded and reinstalled the program. But still nothing happened. It just does the same thing. Please look for more further reports or solutions for this.

    • hmm, I think you must uninstall carbide cleanly with software like : Total Uninstaller or Revo uninstaller, make sure you remove all the junk in your PC, then re install it,

  57. Jerry

    Never mind what I wrote before. I figure out the solution and it worked by running it as administrator and the program started to work. I just wanted to ask you some few questions. Because I have Nokia C3 QWERTY keyboard and i saw the template which you’ve told to download which looks like Nokia C3 touchscreen. Is this Nokia C3 what you’re describing is the Nokia C3 QWERTY keyboard or the touchscreen? If it is the touchscreen, Is Nokia C3 QWERTY compatible for theme editing in Carbide UI. Where can i download the Nokia C3 QWERTY keyboard theme template and do i need to change the plugin?

    Hi! Would you tell me how to make theme like this
    with program Carbide?? Thank you.

  91. Umut

    Hi! I do all things what you tell. Bu I saw, this screen isn’t C3’s screen. This screen belongs to different nokia phone. And I can’t change main menu icons. Because some icons doesn’t belongs to C3. How can I change the C3 main menu icons?

    sorry bad english 😦

    • I’ve said before that carbide doesn’t have 320×230 plugin, so I made this tutor to hel you, just ignore the preview in carbide, as long as u follow my instruction your theme will be match with c3 screen

  92. Ifwill

    Ternyata ada ya software buat bikin theme-nya?! Baru tau nih…
    Udah tiga tahun bikin theme bermodalkan winrar, notepad, ama photoshop.
    Emang keunggulan carbide kebanding kerja manual apaan sih? Kalau cuma lebih memudah dalam proses pembuatan, saya masih mending manual. Udah betah soalnya. Sekedar berbagi informas. Masalah yang sering saya hadapi adalah jika menggunakan proses manual. Kita tidak bisa menambahkan apa” hanya bisa modif/diganti doang. Misalnya nih, kalau theme yang nggak ada ringtone-nya terus kita edit theme descriptor-nya dan menambahkan ringtone yang bersangkutan, itu nggak berpengaruh.
    Ada lagi, saya tidak pernah bisa mengganti media player theme saya, tampilan cuma bisa standar.
    Jujur saya punya beberapa koleksi theme karya agan, tapi udah saya ubrak abrik gabung-gabungin unsur theme satu dengan yang lain, sampe-sampe thumbnailnya juga saya ganti. Sorry ya gan… Mohon ijinnya… Hehehe…

    Hi Udjo, good tutorial. I now have learned how to make a theme, jippie ^_^ But my question to you is how can i make my own large Thumbnail image?

  99. bunga melur

    wow,thanks a lot!! 🙂 really help 🙂

  100. Akhirocks

    the problem is
    1)Thumbnail is not editable.
    2)Not able to add any kind of tones

    • To change thumbnail, copy the image you want to use to clipboard (simply hit ctrl+c) and then go to carbide, right click on Large thumbnails and paste !
      to change sounds, go to sounds, click the sounds you want to change, then on PROPERTIES tab, scroll down and you’ll find “file” that you can locate your tone.

    I really am a fan of zayed Baloch and his udjo42.
    I have one more question: this tutorial, we deizer who became a rather primitive, you have another way to create themes?
    zayed Baloch told you, do not edit the xml, which used other means. you can share this another way?


    realmente eu sou fã do zayed Baloch e seu udjo42.
    Mais eu tenho uma pergunta: esse tutorial, podemos deizer que se tornou um tanto primitivo, você teria outro meio de criar temas?
    você disse ao zayed Baloch, que não edita as xml, que usava outro meio. você pode compartilhar esse outro meio ?


    From: Paulo Cesar in Brazil.

  127. there is another way to create a theme, without any editing the xml?
    your themes are great, I believe that you are using another method!
