    And, share your links if you've made yours!

    ------------------------------------------


    First off, I would like to say that by creating custom themes does not really mean the full theme but only images that can be changed in your phone.

    Also, I would like to thank this thread: http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/se...rchid=14553141
    because it got me figured out on how to make so called themes.

    Anyway, I hope this tutorial will help you on how to make your own custom "themes" for your SH-06A and other models!



    What you need
    Photoshop or any other good programs. Maybe Gimp? (haven't use it before)
    Knowledge on how to use these programs.
    Time.
    Patience.


    Tutorial Covers
    1. Things/Images that you can change in your phone.
    • Menu Screen
    • Outgoing/Incoming Calls, Sending/Rcv Messages
    • Animated Notices
    2. Methods to make your own menu screen.
    • Difference between 2 methods
    • JPG Method
      Photoshop Users
      Non-photoshop users
    • GIF Method
    3. How to make your Outgoing/Incoming Calls, Sending/Rcv Messages

    4. How to make your animated notices

    5. How to upload them into your phone

    6. How to move from MicroSD to phone




    Be prepared! It's going to be very lengthy.


    --------------------------------


    Things/Images that you can change in your phone
    Menu Screen Sample


    Outgoing/Incoming/Sending/Receiving Sample


    Animated Notices Sample



    -------------------------


    Methods to make your own menu screen
    Difference between 2 methods

    The difference in this two method (JPG and GIF) is quite big.

    JPG Pros
    Images can be more fanciful.
    Images are of much better quality.

    JPG Cons
    Background cannot be change as and when. It has to be the one that you set.
    Icons are not animated.


    GIF Pros
    Background can be changed anytime as icons have a transparent background.
    Icons can be animated

    GIF Cons
    Images quality are quite bad.
    Design cannot be as fanciful as JPG due to transparency restrictions.


    Difference between JPG (left) and GIF (right) on a black background:


    Therefore, personally I prefer JPG method.


    JPG Method
    The JPG method is only applicable to those whose screen is 480x854 and whose icons are 152x152.
    And I think sharp models only (not very sure about this)

    Photoshop Users
    Download this template (psd file):
    http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?twtjgzzwgnl

    1. Replace the background layer with your own background.
    2. Hide (press the eye) the Margins folder (it's just a guideline for you to know where your icon should start)
    3. Hide the Selected Icons Folder.

    ----------------------------------------------

    Making your icon
    4. Select an icon folder, press the down arrow.
    For example, in i-mode:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/hardbread/3935758535/
    5. Hide the imode layer:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/hardbread/3936549754/
    6. Paste your icon (as a new layer) on top of the respective image layer.
    To get the icon in the center of the square, ctrl + left click i-mode then press ctrl + v.
    For example, I am making my I-mode icon, here's how it will look:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/hardbread/3935774345
    7. Repeat for all the other icons.
    8. Once all 12 icons is completed, it should look like a real menu screen.
    * Remember to save! Save as psd file to keep your layers.

    -------------------------

    Making your Selected Icon Image
    9. Hide your Icon Folder
    10. Show your Selected Icon Folder
    11.It's the same as making your icons. Just that you do the layers in the Selected Icon Folder.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Saving the Icon Images
    12. Ctrl + left click imode layer (the red square)
    It should look like this:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/hardbread/3935783439/
    13. Go to Edit > Copy Merged
    14. Go to File > New > Width:152 , Height: 152 (should be already pre-set) > Ok
    15. Ctrl + V
    16. Go to File > Save as > DSCN0001 (make sure it's JPG) > Save > There should be a prompt, just press OK.
    17. Repeat with all your other icons and you're done!

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Making the Background
    18. All layers/folder hidden except Background and Icon Folder.
    19. Go to File > Save as > DSCN0026 (make sure it's JPG) > Save > There should be a prompt, just press OK.


    --------------------------------------

    Non-Photoshop Users
    I can't really help but you can use this template as a guideline.
    http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2482/...29ae6138_o.jpg
    Replace the coloured squares with your icons and the background with your own.
    The steps should be somewhat like the photoshop tutorial.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    GIF Method
    This is the easiest way to do.
    All Icons should just be 152x152.
    Background should be transparent (depending on how you want it to be)
    Each icon should have 2 different images. One for icon when selected and when icon is not selected.
    Save both separately as GIF and upload!
    The name for GIF to save is STILXXXX (XXXX being numbers).


    That's all!


    -------------------------------------------

    3. How to make your Outgoing/Incoming Calls, Sending/Rcv Messages
    For this, there is no restriction as to what your file size should be.
    But I recommend 480x288.
    I use ImageReady to animate the images.

    There are 4 Images which you can edit.
    • Outgoing Call
    • Incoming Call
    • Sending Message
    • Receiving Message


    Save them as STILXXXX.gif (XXXX being numbers)
    Thats's about it.


    4. How to make your animated notices
    There is a restricted file size for this.
    Dimensions has to be 424x84 or it will not be read.
    Save it as STILXXXX.gif as well.


    ----------------------------------

    5. How to upload them into your phone
    JPG FILES
    1. Connect your phone to your PC. -> MicroSD mode.
    2. Create a new folder in your DCIM. Name it 100NIKON.
    3. Copy all DSCN images (0001 to 0025).
    4. Paste into your 100NIKON.
    5. Disconnect your phone from your PC.

    ----------------------------------------------

    GIF FILES
    1. Connect your phone to your PC. -> MicroSD mode.
    2. Go to PRIVATE > DOCOMO > STILL
    If you do not have a STILL folder, create one.
    3. Paste your STILXXXX.gif images into STILL folder
    4. Disconnect your phone from your PC.

    ----------------------------------------------



    6. How to move from your Microsd to your phone
    JPG FILES
    1. Menu > Data Box > My Pictures > Microsd > 100NIKON
    2. Images should all be there
    3. Click Submenu > Move/Copy > Copy to the phone > All in folder
    4. There will be a security code prompt. Code is 0000
    5. A list of folder would appear. Choose any available (in this case I will use the folder name as Acquired Data) then press Fix.

    ----------------------------------------------

    GIF FILES
    1. Menu > Data Box > My Pictures > Microsd > Still pics
    2. Images should all be there
    3. Click Submenu > Move/Copy > Copy to the phone > All in folder
    4. There will be a security code prompt. Code is 0000
    5. A list of folder would appear. Choose any available (in this case I will use the folder name as Acquired Data) then press Fix.

    ----------------------------------------------

    That's all! Do share what you have too!

    This guide as stated in the topic was for SH-06A or compatible Docomo handsets. Chinese Sharps are just another story for another day.

    It's all good (^_^)

    NOTE: For now, JPG method only with SH06A and SH07A.

    SH906i Menu Screen Template
    PSD Format: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?tnyntynmxqw
    JPG Format: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3478/...6dd52349_o.jpg

    Hey, I'm not able to edit my post.
    And I need to make some correction. I'm not sure if it works on SH01/02/03 due to the alignment problem.
    The margins may be slightly different.
    Hence, the gif method will definitely work on the other models.
    For now, JPG method only with SH06A and SH07A.
    Sorry about this.

    Anyway, new theme: Apple!

    Made a new menu screen (Apple). Compatible with SH06A and SH07A for now only.

    Same icons but different background:
