if you downloaded a skin package, which is named as

.mtf
.skin.zip
.skin.rar

it means you can simply click it on your phone, and it will be installed.

Hi!

I've posted on another forum (I don't know if I can put the link here) a skin installer (mpkg) that's quite simple to do it.

Here's the link of the mpkg in 4shared: http://www.4shared.com/file/31866856/a57da6fb/valderramas.html?dirPwdVerified=d493640b (http://www.4shared.com/file/31866856/a57da6fb/valderramas.html?dirPwdVerified=d493640b)

Any comments are welcome!

are u using stock Firmware?
Title: Re: [E2] How To Install Themes/skins..
Post by: pingchen23 on February 10, 2008, 06:49:06 PM
Is it a unchangeable fact that stock firmwares cannot support custom skins? Must use modded firmware for that?
Title: Re: [E2] How To Install Themes/skins..
Post by: Taurnil on February 10, 2008, 07:25:48 PM
u can install inetD manually in your stock FW to explore your phone internal folders through samba and install skins. However, it's a unchangeable fact that stock firmwares suck a lot. xD
Title: Re: [E2] How To Install Themes/skins..
Post by: pingchen23 on February 11, 2008, 05:25:41 AM
I've installed InetD,followed the instructions in this thread,and why I apply the newly installed theme in the phone,nothing changed. It's still the default moto theme. It's as if the custom .chm file can't read the custom icon files but it reads the default icons etc instead.

Any solution?

Why do I only see wallpaper, screen saver, power up & down animations settings only?
Title: Re: [E2] How To Install Themes/skins..
Post by: error398 on February 11, 2008, 09:14:13 AM
thats why.. the stock firmware cannot recognize custom skin

flash ur phone.. and u will get more joy with modded firmware..
i buy my phone last week and its still under warranty, i didnt like stock skin and aplication, so i just flash it without care bout warranty.. dont worry bout warranty becoz our friends has try to claim warranty with modded firmware at service centre.. he get all claim succesfull..

I've tried using this method but it didn't work. Does it have a problem with vista? It's kinda confusing to use the firmware things. I'm in desparate need of help!

I've tried it, but it didn't work.

The telnet starts up fine, but
when I try to type in "# cp /
mmc/mmca1/skin.chm/ezx_
user/download/appwrite/setup/
theme/" without the '#' it gave
me an error. I tried using it and it
seemed to work, untill I tried
checking the results.

I got this phone in august. It's
nice but I want it's maximum
fun! Help me out!!!
