Nokia 5130 XpressMusic Mod by xXarmXx Nokia 5130 XpressMusic Mod by xXarmXx
Here's my current project, which took up almost a month because of other things that I need to finished. Its a modded firmware of Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, with 2 themes included. The one in the screenshot is Razor Skull, while the other is just an extra that I decided to put together. For guide on how to flash your Symbian S40 phones, you can easily google that.

The tools that I used to flash my phone is Phoenix, but you can still use JAF. Any feedback would be awesome, and sorry for my messy description, I don't know why but currently I feel a little bit dizzy out of nowhere :P

=================================================================

Use JAF [Just Another Flasher] or Phoenix [Nokia Mobile Service and Testing Application]
to flash your Nokia 5130 XpressMusic with the modded .ppm. Google those.

Region : SEAP
Language : English, Simple Chinese, Malay
Version : 7.97
Included : Razor Skull.nth (official Razor theme), Razor Finite.nth (extra theme)

Changes :
[---] S40V6 look for all related icons,except
[+] Signal icon
[+] USB icon
[+] GPRS [G] icon
[+] Message received top icon
[+] Other status icons that I already forgot or just skipped

[---] Custom battery icon (will update to my own custom made when someone help me in handling those animated .nif)

[---] Orange Homescreen Activated
[+] All text entry are now present, except SIM Memory status and popup text notification (specific to Orange Homescreen - status when you activate anything in the homescreen)
[+] Changed annoying (sucky,awkward,awful,weird,you name it) "Orange Homescreen" title,text,any mention at all to "Homescreen"
[+] Changed Homescreen icons to Dark Token Icons. Search it on Deviantart.com
[+] Blue selection instead of orange colored selection
[+] Custom made Razor Skull skin specifically for homescreen activated S40 phones

=================================================================

NEW UPDATE!

- a single .ppm file which contains minor graphic updates, including the analog clock background, turn off splash screen, and changed homescreen menu background.

( YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL PACKAGE FIRST BEFORE USING THE NEW .PPM! )

Download New .ppm

This mod is made by me, using the original .ppm file for Nokia 5130 XpressMusic firmware. Therefore, I am not responsible for anything happened to your phone during, and after the flashing of your phone with my mods if your phone is dead, break, broken, damage or anything similar.

* USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! *

[X] ADDED INFO [X]

Since some of you are having difficulties in getting the sidebar menu, aka the homescreen, I'm putting up these instructions that I wrote for one of you guys in the comments.

"Replace the variant_defaults.wbxml file in your phone. Get a trial version of Oxycube, install that. Open Oxycube, connect your phone to your PC by using PC Suite setting.

In Oxycube, browse your phone memory folder, go to hiddenfolder > isasettings > variantdefaults and replace the file I said above with the modded one."

**Here's the link to the modded variants_default file**

Have fun using this :)

Hello, I'm having Nokia 5130 RM 495 and version 7.97. From a very long time I'm having some problems after the firmware update like camera do not work, cell restart after plug in audio jack. And the most important problem is when I use text messages a lot cell be in white screen only and do nothing. I paid service center many times to fix this. Will this mod fix such issues??

Depends on your phone's situation. Is it related to hardware issue, ie. camera or screen problem? Or even short circuit as a result of water getting into the phone? If not, then you can try. I can't guarantee anything, but you can always try. Make sure you use English as your phone language though.

Sorry for late the reply. I'm actually busy with my final year project and exam. About that, you need to reflash your phone back with the new .PPM file. By doing that, you need to get through the variants_default.wbxml file again.

After doing these two things, you can turn on the homescreen from Option > Display > Homescreen. The option to turn it on should be there.

Anyways, can you give me the YouTube link that brought you here?

Hey friend I checked this theme from YouTube link, I did everything even I get lots of changes to my phone but the main thing for which I flashed my 5130 i.e homescreen I didn't get that thing.

After searching a lot I got your this page and after reading all this I came to know that you submitted a fix for that problem but could you please tell me if I flash my phone again using the download link provided below which seems fresh. Did I have to go through that variant_defaults.wbxml file or ??

Please reply ASAP

you flashed it right. but you need to use oxycube and open the hidden folders, replace a varients default file in there. by then will you only get the homescreen option in display menu.

Will do some other time, since I'm currently busy with my final year studies and projects. Or you can google for how to flash your phone. Get the basic idea from there, then flash your phone using my .ppm.

Hi bro there is two download links Download New.ppm and Download which one i choose to download, why because one file is 27Mb and the second one is just 7mb, there is big difference between them. So, please help which one i choose and My phone is Nokia 5130XM with 7.97. And one more thing my current ppm is has file extension like
".ppm_mh" what it mean. Is my phone ok to flash with your mod. Please help me.................Thanks in advance bro and nice work.

xXarmXx Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
I already explain the details on which one you should download in the details. You should read it back. If you don't have any firmware files for your phone, download both, and replace the old .ppm (in first download) with the new .ppm (second download).

If your phone have an extension of .ppm_mh, then replace my .ppm mod according to your phone's .ppm, which is ppm_mh. I've tested it on my own phone, and so far all seems well. I've been using it for more than a year.

Good luck.

I don't mind. But make sure you rewrite back the text input for homescreen in your language, since that won't be available by default :) Glad it works for you.

What did you do? Try and reflash back your phone using the original firmware. If okay, then try and reflash back your phone using my modded .ppm, check if its okay.
