Title: [TURORIAL] HOW TO INSTALL SKINS USING SKIN MANAGER
Post by: Jithin on September 17, 2007, 09:14:40 AM
Eventhough skins manager is pretty easy to use,this guide is for those who are new to skinning their phone.

1)Download skinmanager from HERE (http://www.e398mod.com/content/view/55/28/)

2)Connect your phone and open skinmanager. Wait until all the skins are shown up in the skinmanger.

3)You may delete a skin if you need more free space. But NEVER delete the active skin (shown as "checked" in skinmanager.

4)Press "Install" button.You could see a window as shown below.It contains a lot of skin patches you can make. You may uncheck all the patches or check one or two according to your choice.Press OK.

5)Browse for the *.ski file you want to install

6)Wait until the operation is complete.

7)If the skin comes with custom mma_ucp,you can upload it by clicking the "menu files" tab and then uploading the mma_ucp. Make sure that the mma_ucp is made for YOUR PHONE MODEL.This is very important

mma_ucp file (found in /a/mobile/system) specifies the menu arrangement of the skin (1.phonebook,2.Dial services.. etc).. Even if you didn't upload the mma file,there will always be a default mma_ucp file and the menu will be displayed according to that.. mma independent skin will work fine with any mma file,but some other mma dependent skins wont work as expected without the specific file..

do skiman able to upload mma_ucp for some dependent skin to each of skins directory? so it will be located in c/mobile/skin/iField/
not in
a/mobile/system/
Thanks before!
Title: Re: [TURORIAL] HOW TO INSTALL SKINS USING SKIN MANAGER
Post by: are_goenk on April 07, 2008, 03:30:15 AM
As far as I know it can`t.
You can use P2K Tools to copy dependent mma_ucp to each skin folder :)
Title: Re: [TURORIAL] HOW TO INSTALL SKINS USING SKIN MANAGER
Post by: rheezz on April 07, 2008, 05:49:18 AM
Yes, I see...
I ask it because nowaday after the discovery of mma patch
I should do that way
First: Install skin
Second: Upload mma_ucp
Thanks anyway

hey, Bros...
Why did if I want to install skins there are some dat files which can not be installed???
Example: if there are 10 dat files (dat1, dat2, dat3, ....), only 3 or 5 which can be installed..
Thanks,

I did exactly how u've instructed but I kinda do a little modifying right after instruction number 7. I activated the new skin using skiman...then I closed the skiman and it asked for me to reboot my phone and so I did. The problem is, my phone won't reboot. It keeps on flashing. I can't even charge it...it just keeps on flashing. I really love my E398 and I'm so desperate for advices...but pls don't tell me to retiring it   :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
Title: Re: [TURORIAL] HOW TO INSTALL SKINS USING SKIN MANAGER
Post by: Jithin on November 09, 2008, 04:39:31 AM
Some skins are incompatible with stock e398s.. It will keep on rebooting if you install them.. Now what you can do is : Flash your phone with a monster pack.. However,You'll lose all your current data in the phone (contacts,messages etc)

I assume you haven't flashed your phone before.. So READ THIS (https://motohell.com/index.php?topic=361.0) before proceeding.. good luck..

hi guys i uploaded an mma ucp for v360 to my v3i. is it ok? btw, i back-up my fone, then flashed an mp but its not woking, so i flashed the back-up again. but it wont work on ma fone. does that mma ucp for v360 unfit for ma fone?
Title: Re: [TURORIAL] HOW TO INSTALL SKINS USING SKIN MANAGER
Post by: NiKSY on July 31, 2009, 08:32:11 PM
Yup. You can use only mma files made for your phone model... So, when you uploaded a v360 one and restarted the phone - it didn't turn on? Just flashing white screen? Surely that's the way it happened... Now, restoring with Flash&Backup or flashing a new MP with MFF or RSD must bring back to life..!

Have you tried 176x220 Standard, right? You should use 176x220 Special.
