Pathkiller29 - you might like to start a separate thread for the iPhone version as most people here are looking for an iPad theme.
I'm not really into theming but recently found Glass Orb and started looking in the theming forum and when Cody posted that there would be separate tags for DreamBoard I bought it only to find a dearth of themed for the iPad.
I then found I needed to spend another $4 for iFile so have only donated $1 so far for this theme even though it's probably had a lot more time spent on it than most.
I know very little about theming in general and bugger all about Dream Board so please bear with me.
I've only just got this so - first impressions, very good, but no portrait? DB limitation? then that's a problem. Going in to apps, they appear in portrait mode, which is strange, and I have a lot. Any way of searching them? That's as far as I've got (I did need to reboot as it hung when I first installed it but it hasn't since)
Just the first impressions of someone who really doesn't know what he's doing. So take it as you will.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Confucious if you want some toggable widget setup with some super secy looking widgets that rotate you should check out Keons widgetboard here. It uses lockinfo instead of DreamBoard so the widgets rotate but he also made it DB style so clicking in different setups will instantly toggle the new setup with different widgets. The no rotation is somewhat of a limitation iPad DB theming but hopefully it'll be solved soon enough and this theme looks awesome

Thanks SnowLeo - I got Keons widgets when they first came out but don't have lockinfo. He will confirm that I really don't know what I'm doing ]
DreamBoard looks very promising, I've been impressed so far, but selling it when it is still so obviously beta will put a lot of people off.
Like I say, I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to theming, but I really don't think I'm alone in that. Money will be made when people can just install from cydia and have it work.
On another note - I now have to find out how to put my local code in to the weather part of the theme - it is a pain every time I get a new theme with weather, surely it is not beyond the wit of man to write an app that does it for you? No money in it and no kudos as being a theme writer so I guess no incentive to do what should be fairly easy.
I'll have to think about that one.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Keon has had lockinfo rotating versions of his original widgets since a little after he first released. His widgetboard theme is all lockinfo widgets that rotate and are togglable but I'm not sure if he released it yet or not

His widgets are great - but we now have WB, Lockinfo and now DB
DB seems like it could be very good, but if no one supports it then it could die very quickly.
I don't know enough to predict anything - but DB seems to have more possibilities?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

should i add more features? (change wallpaper)

The only issue though is when it comes to iPad theming rotation is not possible. Lockinfo widgets have been around for a while but few themers chose to use it because lockinfo is paid app and they can just make it through winterboard.
The issue though comes with iPad themes which there aren't many out there the themers basically have to choose to make it only portrait or only landscape especially if they want to use widgets and this problem also exists with DreamBoard due to lack of rotation support.
Keon realized this for iPad and began making lockinfo widgets but now figured out how to add DreamBoard-like easy setup switching/widget toggling via lockinfo

anyone else getting errors when running the installer on the deb? Im on 4.2.1 iPad 1 running DB1.1 purchased and it wont install:
unpacking com.jessedegenerate.rain (from .../DreamBoard/Midnight_v0.3.deb)...
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (broken pipe)
dpkg: error processing /var/mobile/Library/DreamBoard/Midnight_v0.3.deb (--install);
short read in buffer_copy (backend dpkg-deb during './Dreamboard/Midnight/Widgets/appleweather/Private/Icon Sets/HTC/30.png')
Errors were encountered while processing:
Finished with result code:256
Im assuming this is because im on DB 1.1 and not 1.2?If you think Im serious, thats funny.
04-21-2011, 11:30 AM #91
There is no v1.2. He was using a really old version .02!
04-21-2011, 11:32 AM #92
There is no 1.2 yet?
Just make a folder called
DreamBoard in the directory of the deb file then unarchive the deb.. The theme folder should be in ur dreamboard folder
Cut and paste it into the right dreamboard directory
04-21-2011, 11:44 AM #93
Tried that as well. Get:
Processing archive: /var/mobile/Library/DreamBoard/Midnight/Midnight_v0.3.deb
Error: can not open file as archive
Finished with result code: 512If you think Im serious, thats funny.
04-21-2011, 11:48 AM #94
First use zip viewer and take out data file
The unarchive that file
04-21-2011, 12:59 PM #95

Error The zip file is not valid

Anyone? Going into a meeting in 25 minutes and would like this theme on beforehand

You can unpack deb files if you have a *nix.
