  • +++ RELEASE! ModMyI iPhone Skinner +++
    Ladies and gentleman, we are finally on the new server, which means, without further adieu. I'd like to go live with our latest project, the iPhone Skinner.



    The app allows you to upload a background, icons, and a dock to the workspace, and simply drag them onto the iPhone demo on the screen. You can also drag and drop the Display Order directly from the app.

    We have a few features and tweaks we will be adding, as well as getting ya'll a guide on how to use it, etc.

    Basically, this creates an .ipb file, which can be put on your iPhone using InstallIPB by timblade. See this thread for more info.

    Make sure you have your icons and your display order matched up. Again, I will have a full guide up tonight or tomorrow on how to use this properly and how to install .ipb files.

    I know, I know, where is the link?

      ok, when I tell it to create where is it placing the file? Have I overlooked something simple? I do that sometimes.

      It downloads to wherever you have your browser downloading files.

      Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but if I add a background image, the script creates very strange icons (in terms of dimension and text placement) so the result is it simply doesn't work for me. Without a background, the resulting ipb file is fine. Below is an example of one of the screwy png's generated by my efforts with the skinner. I'm using Firefox (latest version), by the way.

      (The original icon file had a height of 660 pixels!!!, but that exceeded the dimensional limits for upload.)

      I think the issue I am seeng (No Download) may be a file size limitation, but I am not sure. I can get the download to happen with no files installed, but once I put my images in there, it wont download the completed file

      how about an ipb section in the downloads area?

      I found out the problem. For some reason, when I move the 4 options (Phone, Mail, Web, and Music) up to the row ABOVE the dock, it fails to make me a download. If I leave them on the doc, I get the download

      How big should the background image be? I have everything else working, but when I try setting the background image too, the result is only one row of main icons at the top of the iPhone screen... along with the jump icons across the bottom. The hot spots still work, i.e. I an press the spot where Setting would normally be to launch the app, there's just no icons as everything is compressed across the top.

      EXCELLENT JOB PF and TEAM.

      Somehow, the script is not handling the background images properly -- I get the same results as iPhoneWriter does (as I posted above). It has to do with the size of the lower row of icon images, which crowds out the others. There also is black bordering around some of the top row icons, which creates further problems.

      Any help or word from the developers about this unfortunate problem in an otherwise excellent skinner?

      Thats an awesome app, what would be cool is to make the icons transparent, so you can see the picture that is behind, and get rid of that low part where phone and email icons yet again to see the whole picture.

      You need to make the icons transparent, and the app allows you to remove the doc and see just the background, just uncheck the dock option.
