    Default [solved] cooked firmware cannot uninstall applications and install themes

    Hi pros!

    I have cooked a firmware but...

    - I can install applications
    - I cannot uninstall (installed, not flashed) applications
    - I cannot install themes

    do you have any Idea of where I have messed up?

    This issue is common to other mobile phones and other users as said here: http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.p...c,18289.0.html

    UPDATE This problem is due to a bug in Nokia Editor beta 7. Use other tools for packing the rofs2 folder back as detailed in the next few posts!

    Thank you for replying bsmstar!

    When I try to uninstall an app it says "removing failed".
    If I try to uninstall it from Nokia PC suite it says that the app cannot be removed.

    This applies to both apps installed in C and in E (memory card)

    Trying to install themes results in "unable to install" error.

    For other apps the install process goes fine.

    well.. for temporary solution, u can extract theme sis with sis contents and copy files to e:\ that way it will appear in themes menu.. but i dunno about uninstalling ^^' sorry, maybe next time cook your fw with another tool. on your link to other topic, members say it is tool error, use other tool..

    Cybercracker, bsmstar Thank you very much for your support!
    This bug was driving me crazy... you saved my mental health!

    May I ask you one more question? Should I reapply all the changes from scratch or may I just recompile the customized rofs2 folder with the new tool?

    Was the Nokia Editor beta 7 bug in decompiling rofs2 or in recompiling it back?

    By the way tons of thanks! (and as many clicks on the green arrow as I can)

    Thank you very very much!!!

    I've just used the Chinese tool referred at this thread: http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.p...msg260946.html
    Which has been somehow translated into English here: http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.p...html#msg260946

    I just copied the contents as stated by Cybercracker and... everything works flawlessly now!!!!!!

    Thank you all for your precious support! You're Symbian gurus!!
