    Winterboard is open source so if Wynd or Groovycarrot wanted to take a crack at it, it is available to them. Lets hope someone is up to the challenge because it seems Saurik isn't too interested in continuing it due to his feelings on outside help.

    I had asked Wynd about looking at updating WB, but I think his initial efforts were going to be aimed at DB & BB.

    @Ras - I approached Saurik back in April, but really needed the assistance of a dev and after approaching several, I could not find one willing to help out. So it kinda died. I have stated several times that WB will not exist in iOS 7, but I guess no one believed me until Saurik finally came out and said it.

    Thanks for the links and heads up though! Nice to know that you still come around.

    I had my own experience with the Winterboard team on IRC. It seems there is some sort of "gap" between what the Winterboard team wants from the themer's feedback and what the themers want from the Winterboard team. I am not sure if this "gap" is based on the difference of coding knowledge, but it looks like both sides are talking past each other and no side really understands what the other side actually wants. That needs fixing. Britta is a very good "middleman", he seems to understand both sides and can "translate" between them.
    I remember that there was the request to include geolocation into Winterboard and the response was to use Cydgets. Saurik made Cydgets to deal with additional features for Winterboard themes (at least my understanding of Cydget).
    The problem is that the majority of themers have not a clue how to use Cydgets (including me!). I gave it a try, but could not get anywhere, so looked at alternative ways to achieve the same result. A lot of themers need a template, a code example, to work with. Sadly there are no such examples for a Cydget theme with geolocation for iOS6.

    Even though I am not actively doing anything iOS related, I still like to pop in and have a read-up. Sometimes I just have to give my 2 cents worth of opinion.

    To summarise it is a possibility that Winterboard might not work any more in iOS7. Saurik, creator of Winterboard, puts it down to a lack of constructive feedback from the theme creators.
    So, guys, there you are!
    If you want custom themes in iOS7 (once iOS 7 has been jailbroken), you better start to establish a fruiting communication between the people that create Winterboard and the people that use Winterboard for their theme creations.
    Hi All,

    I thought I'd post some info I posted on a previous MMi thread.

    I am by no means the expert in WB but this is what I can tell you from looking at iOS7 "A4" beta IPSWs (yes they are easy to extract via CMD/terminal & a couple other pieces of the puzzle) & once mounted (rootfs.dmg) on a Mac it looks exactly the same as how we view files in iFile on our jailbroken devices.
    A4 only as a Bootrom dump is needed to get the VFDecrypt keys...

    I don't think it's completely doom & gloom. I could be wrong but from the iOS7 beta IPSWs I've extracted under the hood it essentially looks the same.
    Same directory layout albeit a few new folders here & there. Icon & Apps wise there's still pngs for the iOS to build these. E.g keypad for Calculator & the font still added into the keys. I'd thought that would be code based now to pull natively from the iOS.

    The major change is .car files for the other UI elements. These were .artwork files SO Apple have changed things up here. Essentially making it harder to extract. BUT there is an iOS7 UI Extractor via the iOS7SDK & Xcode5 app that pulls all pngs from all .car files. So it's not as code based heavy as ppl have been saying.

    How WinterBoard is supposed function with the new changes i don't have a clue. Saurik knows a lot of ppl & i was asked to contribute but a few of the known Devs have stepped up.

    Yes KoH, Jake & I are talking ATM but since it blew up on Reddit other Devs have provided some info Saurik
    has requested.

    Britta mentioned here to a few of us to provide help via the IRC

    https://twitter.com/brittagus/status/376437886565879809

    Fingers Crossed Guys cos I wanna see iOS7 Jailbroken AND Themed on the 5S!

    As soon as the iOS7GM is out ill be tearing that IPSW to shreds for a look at exactly what we are dealing with moving forward.

    Thanks Jato for the info, here is an rather old guide on how to mount iOS firmwares under Linux. The principle is still the same today (done it with iOS6), but some of the packages have newer versions.

    Ras. You were right About WeatherUnderground. Loaded their app on my phone for the drive home from Upstate New York to Philly. And it was updating at least 30% more often than WeatherWidget (Yahoo).

    WW's engine was great yesterday - only had to "unstick" it three times in a 4 hour journey. Awesome.

    But when I saw "Entering Village of.." Or "Enterting Town of" signs along the road... Weather Underground had it nailed 97% of the time within seconds to a minute. WOW!!! Yahoo would change earlier or later or be off by one town several miles away -- several times. Yahoo's city naming convention was about 85% good. So they're both pretty great feeds in my view. But I'm a bit of a nut about accuracy - especially for this city iWidget of mine and all my widgets I'll eventually convert for that matter. The weather info is greater with WW - I'll never worry about that.

    So I'll PM you with a few questions about the WU feed and API.

    Thanks for the head's up about WU.

    But WW, overall, was a real champ on the trip home. We went the scenic route home and it just kept updating as it was designed to do. Still lovin it!!

    EDIT: I should add that the Yahoo JSON feed myLocation widgets uses updated 30% LESS than even WW did.. So Yahoo uses a different more accurate feed for their Apple Weather.app than the free feed we were using with myLocation. It's accuracy was about the same as WW - but it ignored a lot of smaller towns.

    Thanks, King.. You mean the one we used with myLocation widgets is their free beta feed? And the one WW uses is the Apple feed Yahoo give them?

    Well - that's generally true in life.. but Google's free feed is CRAZY accurate compared to Yahoo. You get a max of 2500 free hits per day (per IP) with Google.

    Yes. That's why they would mess with the feed and we would scramble to fix crap.

    Yes. This is the official feed that is provided to Apple. I'm sure there is some kind of deal here.

    Free yes, but it is published as free use. It's not a test feed that you are tapping into.

    Ah.. That explains a lot. I wonder why we didn't think of using Google's feed with myLocation? It was always the "free" or not issue.. as I recall.
