    Been spending most of my free time today getting a good look into what they have changed.

    The default icons for the apps have some what changed.

    there are a few ones but the main one is icon_72.png

    which is the one you see on the home screen. The dimensions are 72x72


    The one thing that I can not find is where i can replace my sliders.

    yes i have and I Found where most of the stuff is.. seems there is a now a few versions of the files that are called on based on what the device is doing... like if you have it landscape mode and so on.. There are also the icons that appear in smaller apps such as in the pref app where you have settings for other apps...


    Dont know if this is against the rules at all but here is a small video i made to show them changed.

    im in the middle of porting over my own theme i made back in the iphone 2g days. that I have been updating and bringing over from 2g to 3g to 3GS and now to the ipad..

    So please bear in mind its no where near done at all. and the icons are not final.

    Also the spacing on certain things is not final as well.


    I was able to change the sliders to big and long on both power down and unlock screens.. as well as replace the sounds for the certain things i needed ("you got mail" and so on)

    Does anybody know of a source for some generic 72x72 png's that those of us without skinning skills could use?

    Thanks.

    A place to obtain some premade general/generic replacement icons.

    *edit* Or a noob-friendly icon template in the right size for Photoshop would help also.
