Tutorial updated to be used with XS++ 3.1 which makes it even more easier! And also tested on CID52 w610i,w880i,s500i,w580i,w900i, and works fine:)
(Note:XS++ v3.1 (DARWIN) Does NOT support CID53 (w595, w910i etc) so please do not try if you have a CID53 phone i got the topic title wrong)
It may be possible to access CID53 by.....
Windows: Use FAR Manager with JDFlasher plugin. (not tested by me, and not supported in this tutorial)
Linux (incl. Mac, though not known to work perfectly): Use XS++ v4.1 BETA (CROSSFIRE). (not supported in this tutorial)

Then to disconnect phone from pc click " Shut Down " in bottom right corner of XS++.
Then you can unplug your phone and the flash themes are on your phone.
But this is no good as you are not using them with anything so these tutorials will tell you how to make them work with any flash theme you have put on your phone. ( Note:I did not make this).Thanks uroszg!

If you are getting problems with doing this like an error message when you install them on your phone like " Theme file corrupt " or the flash menu is not there then make sure.
You have put the EXACT name of the swf so if it is " citybeat.swf " you NEED to put the whole name not just " citybeat " or " CiTyBeAt.swf " as it is CASE-SENSETIVE. Also if this does not work remember to .tar the theme files WITH TUGZIP and NOT 7-zip.Then you can rename to .thm and then put the .thm file in your "themes" folder on your phone
Ok now to the faq part of the post ....
