NEW Star Trek lCARS Theme for iPod Touch
Well, I suppose you are a geek - otherwise: why so interested?
I've made a new Categories-based Star Trek lCARS theme for the iPod Touch (1.1.4). In order to get it working on your Touch you need at least the following apps installed:
NOTICE: This theme has been specifically customized to work with the apps I have on MY OWN iPod. In order to customize it for YOUR specific needs you will have to change
-the background and default graphics of the respective Categories
-(if neccessary) the order/location of your applications' icons.
If you like MY selection of apps (txt-file "Apps" in this thread's attachment) and if you don't bother having exactly the same, than INSTALLATION WILL BE VERY EASY
The theme is not (yet) available via Installer, but you can download it using this link:
RapidShare: Easy Filehosting (Password: summerboard)
--> Vimeo: Star Trek lCARS Theme for the iPod Touch on Vimeo
--> YouTube (Part 1 of 2): [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4y4Rd8QGLI]YouTube - NEW Star Trek Theme for iPod Touch (Pt.1of2)[/ame]
--> YouTube (Part 2 of 2): [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9yz0N9lJAE]YouTube - NEW Star Trek Theme for iPod Touch (Pt.2of2)[/ame]
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO WATCH THE TUTORIAL ON VIMEO, BECAUSE QUALITY AND RESOLUTION ARE MUCH BETTER!
A video in TOP QUALITY will be uploaded to rapidshare very soon!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I forgot to mention some important settings for Categories v.1.72 in my Video Tutorial! Make sure to apply the following settings in Categories v1.72:
-Allow Hide Icons [Enabled]
-Use Background Img [Enabled]
-Left-Right Scrolling [Disabled]
-Hide Last Row [Disabled]
-Title At Bottom [Enabled]
-Hide Title [Enabled]
-Hide Icon Titles [Enabled]
-Summerboard Themes [Enabled]
If your respective Categories-Screens show messed-up background images, just make sure to have those settings applied and just re-do the steps for copying the background images to /private/var/mobile/Library/Categories (watch Video Tutorial for more detailed information on this). After that, restart SpringBoard via SMBPrefs. Lock your iPod Touch and slide to unlock --> EVERYTHING SHOULD BE FINE NOW
Here some preview images from my iPod Touch:
P.S.: Of course the Unlock/Slider Screen of the downloadable Theme does not show "DJ ONION'S IPOD"! Instead the text will now be "THE ICARS COMPUTER NETWORK".

I forgot to mention that this theme actually does not have any icons!
It works by replacing the applications' icons with transparent ones, so that you basically tap "through" them onto the "icons" which actually are part of the respective background image.
DON'T FREAK OUT IF THE THEME SEEMS TO HAVE WIPED OUT ALL YOUR APPLICATIONS! I DOES NOT AND CANNOT HAVE DONE THAT BY ANY MEANS! IT HAS JUST MADE THE ICONS INVISIBLE IN ORDER TO CLEAR THE VIEW ONTO THE BACKGROUND IMAGES!
So if you want to customize this theme for your personal needs, you will have to modify the background images (instead of changing any icon-png-file).

Wow, I'm amazed at the detail and how you got everything to kind of fit into the theme.

Brings back the Old-School kind of feel like Re watching the movie Tron... or something like that, but spot on the coordinate grids and techy-feel ; )

It looks like your iPhone is made 1965 with this theme.
