I had the same problem I had hard formatted my phone but it didn't change and then I erased the theme AEBlue and AEblack then everything is normal now They are good themes but suddenly they started to make this problems to me.
(PS: May be there can be other reasons of this problem, I don't mean that AEfox's themes break down your phone, don't get me wrong )

Hi.
I had exactly the same problem, I am an IT Technician so was quite interested as to what was wrong with my phone.
It appears that the AE themes pack a little extra surprise other than making you phone look good.
The .sis file launches another 'hidden' program, rather like a Trogan on a PC does.
This program appears to request the IMEI number from the phone and another number string which I think is the SIM's ID24 code. It then attempts, on the phones next GPRS connection, to pass this file onto an IP address (registered to a name with the initial A.E.F).
With these 2 pieces of information it is possible to 'clone' a mobile phone, steal it's identity and make calls and GPRS connection with the bill going to the contract holder of the cloned phone.

There is a bug in the code which makes the themes no loner work once the file has been passed I guess, or it could be done on purpose to make the victim reinstall his phone & themes thus clearing the phone of any evidence.

Of course I may be wrong, my phone is currently in the hands of an IT investigator who will be making a full report of the actions of this trogan as I fear this may be correct.

I shall print their findings here.

Simon

Hi,

Please make a through investigation into these theories and let us know.

The reason I say this is that this guy is a very respected person around this forum for his theme work and I, along with everyone else, would hope that he would never implement something like this in a theme he has made.
Any accusations need to be backed up 100% with hard facts.
Especially as he now sells themes.

Ian

I also had the same problem with AE Themes, especially with AEPRO theme.
I have used UnmakeSIS program to inspect the .sis file but did not find any "extra" file rather than the 2 usual .mbm and .skn files packed in the .sis. Don't know if those types of file could hide inside trojan codes or not !
