Thread: Buuf 4 iPad Port
01-03-2011, 09:24 AM #1Buuf 4 iPad Port
UPDATED: 12th Jan 2011 - CHECK BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR FIRST ALPHA RELEASE!
Ok, well I've got to work on the porting and considering I've not touched iOS for ages, It's going well for my first few hours of playing. You will NEED to be on 4.2.1 to use this theme when it is released, due to the file name changes from 3.2.1 / 3.2.2
**DONE SO FAR**
*Started building a bundle list of commonly-used apps with buuf4 icons made by Stereo69. Icons have been sized to 100x100 to display correctly
*Renamed Buuf4 iPhone HD to Buuf 4 HD iPad to allow me to disinguish and compare themes
*Replaced Dock with iPad Buuf Dock - Thanks to Stereo!
*Replaced Remove application "X" with buuf4 version
*Replaced Folder Icon with buuf4 version
*Replaced UIsounds with buuf4 sounds
*Replaced Media Quick controls with buuf version *Needs tweaking*
*Test theming the iPad's media Player with some graphics provided by Doreen / Stereo! *Very different from the iPhone's set-up, so it's going to take some time*
**PRIORITY LIST TO DO**
*Work out how to remove shadows of icons in the Multi-task / Quick tray - Help appreciated? - DONE JAN 9TH
*Change Quick Launch bar background to something more "Buufy" - DONE JAN 9TH
*Continue building bundles list for all of my applications and commonly used apps
*Start skinning the Settings panel with correct buuf icons - CURRENTLY WORKING ON!
I've attached some screenshots of my efforts to date. I'll continue further over the weekend. Obviously I'll need help from Stereo with some of the graphics.
Building the bundles is a right pain in the back-side and is very time consuming. Add to the fact that the UI dump i'm using is from 3.2.2, I'm having to learn things on the go as well as manually find .plist data to make the icons work! Unlike the iPhone, the iPad uses a LOT of different icon names!
At least the progress so far looks good!
Downloads of all releases will be found here!
Release 0.1(Alpha) - http://www.4shared.com/file/xh0dGBhX/BuufiPadHD.html
When adding buuf icons, you'll need to downsize them from 128x128 to 100x100. I'll get all the icons released so far re-sized some time over the weekend if I get the chance....my time is short at the moment.
Manhattan - The original guru behind Buuf! - Thanks for the awesome concept!
Stereo89 - Continued support with brilliant Icons! Without him, Buuf wouldn't be alive still.
Doreen - Her brilliant work along with Stereo have made Buuf iPhone 4 HD possible. Without that, there wouldn't be anything to port!
babybuufey! - Used some sounds and icons from his Buuf iPhone theme
DSG - iPad UI advice and tips!
ME! - For spending ages building bundles and porting it!
I'll update the credits some more tomorrow, it's nearly 4am now and I've been working on this all night!

Wessssss side! Sorry everytime I see your nic I automatically think of Westside Connection: YouTube - Westside Connection "Gangsta Nation" (which I love)
Anyways, that looks excellent! Maybe Stereo can resize the wall for you and do the Dock and the Springboard Badge? Some of the firsthand things that automatically jump out at you? He would need the correct dimensions of those items (and of course the willingness and time to do so)
But that looks great! So is winterboard fully able to support all the "Same" elements such as the Dock and SB Badge? or are those not supported in WB?
Also the Status Bar is no longer able to be skinned in WB (until Saurik updates WB if he ever does)
So what I do is paint that onto the wall so it looks like it still has the Status Bar themed.
Actually do you have all the iPad OS images? It would be easier if you just upload the default images and if WB supports all the same things like it does for the iPhone this won't be too hard for you at all (looks like you only need a few more things)

i'll be honest all i have changed is icons!
everything worked straight out of the iphone 4 one
as for changes im willing to learn and have a go at anything u can see wrong. I have a untrained eye so its helpful for you guys to let me know wha looks wrong and wha needs changing etc.
all help is greatly appreciated

That's a surprise! So I see alot of the GUI Stereo made looks like it took when it loaded the theme? I would think all he needs to do is have the proper dimensions then so he can make the images properly (so they don't get all stretched and fuzzy/grainy looking and this would be fairly easy) If he sees this maybe he will respond and/or the next time me and him chit chat I will ask him if he is up to working w/ you on this. That way the images look perfect. He is a perfectionist!
You did a great job! (bundles are work) hehe!
But the only thing I'm noticing are a few things such as the Dock, SB Badge, and a few GUI elements did not theme nor did the Browser (and also the Wall needs to be resized)
I'm surprised WB even supports it. Since Saurik seems to have dropped the ball on Winterboard lately and left all of his fans hanging. (I'm missing the "per page" theming on the iPhone badly!)

the dock needs a to be in the Folders folder in same folder as bundles + UIImages
e.g Buuf.theme>Folders>Springboard.app> [images in here]
SBDockBG-Landscape~ipad = needs to be 1024x64
SBDockBG-Portrait~ipad = needs to be 768x64
alot of the UIImages need resizing and renaming, a guide would help, cant wait to finish the theme im porting
