In this master thesis project, a method for finding unused texts and
icons in the Sony Ericsson phone software is designed. The reason for
finding these is the cost of maintaining the growing list of presumably
unused texts and icons. Hence removing all unused icons and texts would
be beneficial. The method developed can briefly be described as a dead
code analyzer. A graph representation of the software is created, where
the nodes represents the functions, and the edges represents the
function calls. A connectivity analysis of the graph is done to see
which labels are reached. The method is specially developed for Sony
Ericsson environment, but can easily be modified to fit other
environments and for other purposes. The method is implemented in a
tool, which can be used to present a result of unreachable texts and
icons. The method was also tested and the result suggested that 58 per
cent of the texts and 46 per cent of the icons, in the given test, were
