11-26-2008, 08:02 PM #1[RELEASE] Fallout 3 Pipboy 3000 Theme in 4 (now 5) colors
Here is my Fallout Pipboy 3000 Theme(s). I did the Pipboy 2500 Theme a little while back before fallout 3 came out, but these are completely different and looks a lot like the actual in-game pipboy and even comes in the four colors you can choose in game: Green, Amber, White and Blue. (4 separate themes and 4 separate add-on packages).
-Sizable set of vault-boy images to use as icons. There are a bunch of icons already set of course, but odds are good you'll want to grab the extra icons and set them up for your own apps using mobile finder or some other method. there is a text file in the root of the theme that you can read to see which images were used for the existing icon set. Might be handy.
-Animated scanline wallpaper. This is cool and is used by default, but it does drain the battery slightly. I have included in the root of each theme "Wallpaper Scan.html" and "Wallpaper Noscan.html". If you ever want to turn the scan off (or back on), delete "Wallpaper.html", then copy/paste/rename to "Wallpaper.html" the html file you want to use.
-moderately themed UI. In addition to the springboard being themed, I tossed some extra crap in as well. The loupe, the sms balloons/background, battery, ui popups buttons and some other stuff. This is by no means a complete revamp and as such I strongly recommend using these themes on top of Steffwiz's Ultimate Black theme which is awesome.

Very nicely done. The scanline is a great touch. With the addon packages, I can see this theme staying on my phone for a while.

I don't see any of those Keyboard images in the UIimages section of any of those themes. Ditto the FSO_CARRIER_IPOD being missing, although I suppose one can take the FSO_CARRIER_ATT file and just rename it.

very nice theme and perhaps the one i was looking for except the little boys. Can you make another one without boys and perhaps some Neon-like simple icons which will look cool on green background and also neon battery and cool sound.

Jarlath you're right. Copy the FSO_CARRIER_ATT image and rename it. I forgot about the 'touch users.
The keyboard images come from using Steffwiz's Ultimate Black theme underneath these ones.
The vault boy images were extracted directly from the fallout 3 resource files on the pc and they're sort of the whole point of the theme. Its not like I drew them myself (theres 400 of them) and I don't think I'm going to draw a new non-pipboy set from scratch. You might want to grab the add-on package and look through it though because a subset of those 400 images are the pictures that were used for inventory items and they don't have the vault boy in them. (like the envelope).
edit: He's also not really a 'little boy'... That just makes the theme sound creepy. He's the advertising mascot for vault-tec: Vault Boy - Fallout Wiki - The Vault

Actually mudlark I had a bit of question since a few screenshots are missing from the UIimages thread right now...
I was wondering if you could tell me what the 'New' and 'What's Hot' UIimage names were from the below picture. What I'm trying to do is make the selected tab the existing green, and the non-selected tab a lighter green, rather than the blue it is right now. This may be treated as a request if you are so inclined, but the name will do just as fine. Thanks.

12-24-2008, 02:21 PM #9How do you install?
I've just recently jailbroken my iPhone, and I'm wondering how do you exactly install this theme? I used QuickPwn to jailbreak it, if that helps any.
Ok I got the theme installed lol. Are you going to develop any more like add-on packs? because it kinda sucks when some apps aren't themed and they REALLY stand out. I love the theme though, nice work
also, what theme did you get to allow you to have 5 apps in the home row?

It is not really possible or worth the time for any theme to keep up with every single app that comes out, which is why I did not even try. What I did was provide enough icons for you to apply to your own set of apps. When you download the theme and the addon packs, you have over 400 icons that you can go through and use for your particular selection of apps. I've explained this a number of times to folks that have asked over email and I'll put the instructions in here too.
First you'll need some method of accessing the iPhone's filesystem. You can either connect the phone to your pc and use something like iphonebrowser to access the phone's file system over the usb cable, or you could use a program like winscp or some other ftp application to communicate using ssh over a wifi network. There are other methods as well depending on if you use a mac or a windows pc. Also, you can use mobileterminal to modify the filesystem directly from the iphone itself.
To set up icons for your apps, you will need to navigate the filesystem from the root to /Library/Themes/Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 <color>.Theme/Icons/
<color> will be either White Blue Green Red or Amber.
Inside the Icons directory you will see a bunch of png files. These files have the same name as the apps on the springboard. By this I mean that the filename before the png extension will be exactly the same as the springboard name. The icon for Orb is called OrbLive.png, The icon for dtunes us called dTunes.png. (caps are important).
The Icons dir already has 70 or so icons for a variety of apps that you may or may not have. If you aren't using some of these icons because you don't have the apps, just change their filenames to an app you are using.
The addon packs have another 400 or so icons in them. These are not set up to match any specific apps. In fact, the icons in the addon packs still have the filenames from the Fallout 3 game. This may or may not help you find icons that you remember from the game. You are meant to go through them, pick the ones you want for your apps and copy the files to your Icons directory and rename them with your app names. You can find the addon pack icons in this directory from the root: /User/extras/Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 <color>.Pipboys/
<color> will be either White Blue Green Red or Amber.
Once you modify your app icons, respring and you should see it take effect.

not to sound stupid or anything im usually good with this stuff but if you dont mind giving me some instructions on how to install this im running winscp.

The easiest way to install this theme is probably to download it from cydia as well. Cydia will place the theme(s) in the correct location so that all you need to do is open winterboard and select it.
If you want to install the theme(s) manually using winscp, grab the zip files that you want from the initial post. There are 8 zip files above. 4 color themes and 4 color packages of extra icon images. If you wanted to install the green theme for instance, you would download
Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 Green.theme.zip
Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 Green.Pipboys.zip
Unzip the theme zip file keeping the paths intact and you will have a folder called "Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 Green.theme"
To install the theme, all you need to do is open winscp and browse to the root of your iphone/ipod touch. Go into the folder called Library, then go into the folder called Themes. Drag the "Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 Green.theme" into the Themes folder, and you're done. The theme will now appear in your winterboard theme menu, just pick it and you should be good.
Before you do that however, you might want to configure the icons in theme. This is easier when you have the theme on your pc.
Unzip the Pipboys zip file keeping the paths intact and you will have a folder called "Fallout Pip-Boy 3000 Green.Pipboys". This folder contains a ton of extra icon png files you can use for app icons. Use my previous post above for instructions on how to modify/rearrange/configure the theme's icons for your particular selection of apps. When you're done, drag the theme to your iphone and enable it in winterboard.

this is a awesome skin i really like it

Hi, how do I set up the top bar so i can use the carrier logo/battery logo etc on my iPod touch?
01-18-2009, 08:18 AM #15
...the FSO_CARRIER_IPOD being missing, although I suppose one can take the FSO_CARRIER_ATT file and just rename it.
The FSO_CARRIER_ATT image is the one you see in the pics. To have it show up on the touch, just copy it and rename it FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.

First off great theme, I changed many app icons myself without too much trouble. But Im having some trouble changing the lock screen wallpaper. I deleted the Wallpaper.html to stop the scanline wallpaper but I cannot get my own image to show up on the lock screen. I enabled user wallpaper in winterboard but it isnt changing. Is there anything I need to delete/change in order to have my own wallpaper?
01-28-2009, 06:27 PM #17
Sorry for not replying earlier. If you ever have a question feel free to PM me here (which isn't all that fast in notifying me either) or email me directly through cydia's contact link.
As you know there are three html files for the wallpaper and only wallpaper.html is the active one (the other two are just backups to let you swap them around easier) Deleting wallpaper.html should be sufficient to completely disable this theme's control over the springboard wallpaper.
You also need to address this theme's control over the lockbackground wallpaper and the smsbackground wallpaper. You can do this by deleting/renaming those files or using the User Lock Background theme.
The 'user wallpaper' and 'user lock background' themes specify the wallpapers by using a symbolic link to point to your regular -user designated- lockscreen wallpaper. Specifically, those themes point to:
This file only exists if you have chosen an image in your camera roll and set it to be your wallpaper. (I didn't have one until I started testing this stuff out a moment ago)
Make sure that you have a jpg file in that exact location, disable my html file, then enable both those themes on TOP of this theme and your springboard wallpaper and lock background should change.
Alternatively you can just drop real images into those two themes instead of using the symbolic links.
That should do it I think...

Adding a Red variation to this theme. Zips are attached and instructions remain the same.

Can anyone tell me why I dont get the battery image where it should be? Its just black up there.
03-02-2009, 06:57 PM #20
The only thing that really obscures the battery is if you have an html file for the lockscreen background. This is used in themes that have widgets and the like. I think its ok if the html doesn't have a background image because then it just sits on top. The lockscreen has layers:
lowest layer: lockscreenbackground.jpg
next layer: clock & battery
next layer: html lockscreen
My theme doesn't use html for the lockscreen, so I don't know why you would be having trouble. If you have another theme with an html lockscreen enabled then who knows? Make sure it isn't putting a wallpaper on top. Post some more detail on the problem if you think something else is going on, I'll try to help out.
