Menu transitions and effects are just a few of the new features included in Nokia's Feature Pack Two S60 devices. These subtle animations really do make a difference and give S60 a feeling of "newness". The N81 of all devices was blessed with a firmware update that enabled these effects, despite the N81 being a Feature Pack One device. That firmware update has now allowed users of the N95 8GB and maybe some other devices to take advantage of the theme effects, too.

Please note that this hack is only working on phones with V20 firmware! V30s, V31s, V11s, V10s, V12s and others will NOT work.
***READ THIS BEFORE STARTING***
-A hacked phone with ROMPatcher and a file browser(like Y-Browser) installed.
-To make sure that all of your themes are installed on the C drive(internal memory).
1)Download the KastorUI zip file from here: extract it and then copy the Kastor UI folder to your phone's memory card.
2)Disable platform security either by using CapsOff or ROMpatcher and then use a file browser navigate to the KastorUI folder and copy the KastorUI.rmp file to the patches folder on your memory card.
3)Copy the entire effects folder(from the KastorUI folder) into C:\Resource.
4)Copy the effects.sel file(from the KastorUI folder) and then navigate to C:\Resource\skins. In here, paste the effects.sel file into each of the folders and then rename it to the name of the folder. For example, if the name of a folder was 2000d1c3, you would rename effects.sel to 2000d1c3.sel.
5)Exit your file browser and then open ROMPatcher. Enable the KastorUI patch and set it to start automatically.
6)Navigate to the themes application, highlight your current theme and press options, select theme effects and then turn them off and back on again. *DO NOT EXIT THEMES* Instead, press the Symbian Menu button to open the menu and voila, your theme effects are working!
Every time you turn off your phone, simply repeat step 6 to get your theme effects back.
I've only tested this with my N95 8GB. If this works for you on a different phone, please leave a comment saying so!
