    yoohoo!!! great help from you guys! was able to delete an untraceable file!!! KUDOS! had a hard time finding it at first, but was able to. @frhost there are actually two files in which you’d be able to see the same file type, i guess one supports the other (since it’s a theme, a part of it is saved under the phone memory and the other externally/sd). You should be able to trace the main file from G:\Private\10207114\import (i guess the numbers differ) So try opening one folder after the other. If you’ve deleted themes and it still appears active on your phone after deletion, it would appear as file corrupted and you wouldn’t be able to use it anymore. Yeah, problem is, you can’t be sure of the name of the file you’re wanting to delete.

    A safer way is to,

    1, reinstall the theme.(the theme you want to remove) Then it will appear in application manager, and you will be able to uninstall it.

  11. Suleman

    This is not a good method because you cannot install the same theme again.

  12. sagar

    hey it’s works on my E51
    there is no need of pc if you have xplore installed in your phone and hacked by hellocarbide
    just do this steps to remove that themes

    1) caps off
    2) open xplore
    3) go to c:\private\10207114\import

    you will find some folders here

    if you want to see which theme is in that folder so just open .mbm files

    if you wish to delete that theme just delete that folder

    that’s it

    now you can see that theme has been removed from theme selector

    you can do this same with themes stored on your memorycard just find those folders in

    keep smiling and enjoy life……….

    Have same problem, seems that theme developers dont put names but defaults in it.
    Only way is to delete them all, but watch out, some cannot be re-installed, reason is unknown, like to know solution on this

  28. unknown_creature

    thanks stupidgenius!
    works on n95.,
    instead of pc suite, ‘data transfer’ should be used [if using a cable]
    and ive seen the themes!
    whew! ive deleted it!
    i thought my phone has a virus now..

    thx here!
    great help!

  29. Aad

    Something does not go well. With a Nokia E65 probably traces are left and re-install is not possible for some themes. (Gnokkia / Pizero)

    What is to be cleaned-up properly of a theme, to re-install it again ?

    You would like to do that, when you have stored themes on your memorycard, and notice, some mysteriously are whiped off when others were installed…

    So you like to get those lost themes, back again….and that fails …….
    Help ……….

  39. renelma

    I removed the the from the mini SD card.. @ stupidgenius; Thnxxx

    But there are still a few theme’s who i have installed on the phone.
    How can I remove them? I cant find a directory like: “[Drive]:\Private\10207114\import ” on the phone

  40. stupidgenius

    Use a cable. When plugging the cable, the phone will ask in which mode to connect. Choose Data transfer. The phone will get connected to the computer with the memory card appearing as Removable storage hard drive. Use Windows Explorer to browse (might need to make Windows show hidden files from Tools -> Folder Options -> View).

  41. renelma

    it doesn

  42. kozkitz

    it doesn’t work in my N81 8GB, my memory was already fixed you can’t get it…is there any options?

  43. sue

  44. sue

    hey wat do u mean by mass storage.. i’m not seein that on my screen..?? helpp plzz

  45. nekro

    i found the solution !
    if you can’t find the PRIVATE directory under my computer just copy this in you web browser (i used IE):
    (device letter):\PRIVATE\10207114\import

    for me it was H:\PRIVATE\10207114\import and then just follow the tutorial


  46. meev

    is it working with nokia 6120c ?
    anyone knows?

  47. nekro

    yes I tried in mass storage mode

  48. adrien

    connect in mass storage mode not pc quite mode my friend.

  49. nekro

    cant find this directory in my mini SD

    –> NOKIA N73 Music edition

  50. adrien

    works well with my e62 ๐Ÿ™‚ people u just try with file explorer and you will find the folder he is talking about ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. e62

    doesnt work for my e62. Doesnt show a folder named private. Checked all available folders, but none contains anything relevant. I had turned on “show hidden files” but zip…
