Pretending your 3rd Edition phone is 5th Edition?

The Flahorn icon pack has become somewhat legendary in the Symbian world, featuring in a load of PiZero themes, and the man's done it again, this time with a theme for S60 3rd Edition phones that emulates the icon set and general look of the new S60 5th Edition phones. Why buy new hardware when you can simply pretend?...

Read on in the full article.

Can't see an option to download from that site (using Opera Mini) ?

The new standard icon set that Nokia introduced on the 5800 is really nice, it's so colourful, clear and fresh compared to the messy mish-mash of folders and icons it used on previous S60 models.

I think Nokia are going to use these new icons on their upcoming S60 3rd Edition devices too, so the unofficial Flahorn icons will be getting some competition...

I love those new icons, but I must disagree with Tzer2, the folder icons with actual folders drawn on them were much clearer to me.

On the topic, that theme is great! I like that there are icons that even Nokia hasn't made yet.

If you would like further themes with the Touch icons, check out nahidthemes.com - Some decent themes in that collection.

I don't get it. This guy just rips the icons and themes from new devices and repacks them for older ones, and he's somehow a genius designer? At least PiZero actually draws his own themes.

Installed Touch Blue on my E61i. Blue sinewave is horizontal on home screen, otherwise looks and functions normal. -/chuck

I just LOVE this theme. I have both N96 and 5800 phones, and really like having the 5th Edition theme on my N96 as well. Lovely theme, and FREE. So cool :-)

Hmmm .. think its a little (substantially) more difficult than just ripping off icons. The designer quotes three months of work, and to be honest I can believe that is about right. And then he gives his work away free. Can't help wondering whether "Thanks a lot" would be a better comment to leave rather than having a pop! Anyway ...

Smile Flahorn Touch

I like the Touch Blue as homescreen on E90 ! It is kicking Flahorn even without Icons ...

Slow on my E61

Really nice theme ...& free. Thank you.
Unfortunately it makes my E61 slower. Lots of screen lag. Even with the lite (default icons) version.
I know I'm going to have to revert back to 'White Revisited' by 'Daniel' sooner or later.
