Let’s assume you found yourself in a situation whereby you installed some cool themes on your Nokia Symbian phones but due to one reason or the other you couldn’t see your themes in the list of installed themes. Not only that, but you also cannot find it in your application manager for you to be able to remove it. Against this backdrop, I hereby present to you a very simple method to be able to delete such stubborn themes from your phone
How to Easily Delete Hidden/Corrupt Themes on Nokia Symbian
- Connect your device to your PC in ‘Mass storage’ mode – or insert your Mini SD card into a card reader and connect it to your PC.
- Once your PC recognizes your card a new drive will appear under ‘My Computer’. Open it, and browse to private, 10207114, import.
- Browse through each of the folders in this directory to find the theme you would like to remove. The MBM, MIF, and SKN files in each folder should each be named after the theme – so if you want to remove a theme called “MyTheme”, look for “MyTheme.mbm” etc.
*Note that you may see some MBM/MIF/SKN files named simply “themepackage.mbm” etc. In this case, simply open the SKN file in Notepad and you will see the actual theme name in the first few lines of text.
- Once you’ve found the folder containing the theme files you’d like to remove, simply delete the contents of the folder (don’t delete the folder itself).
Finally, you need to now put your card back in your phone and you will notice that the theme is no longer listed under your themes and in the case of hidden themes it fill no longer consume your memory.
