    Default [RELEASE] K.A.T.S. for Theme Developers (K.Nitsua' Automatic Theme Setup Guide)


    Okay guys, here you go. Start theming and making it easy on us folk installing these crazy, time-consuming, pain-staking-to-install themes.

    Download KATS for Theme Developers via MEDIAFIRE

    The above RAR file contains the following:

    - 220 Pre-made blank icons
    - 9-12 Placeholder icons (springjump and webclip types)
    - 99 Springjump shortcuts
    - Fully-detailed PDF guide

    Official clock-in time (including "resprings"):

    3 Minutes and 37 Seconds

    Let me emphasize something... THIS INCLUDES SSH-ing, RESPRINGS, and was my most difficult theme (thus far) to install... iNITSUA 3.0 PREMIUM!!!! In the past, this theme has been known to take well more than an hour to install manually.

    Please report any issues with using this. I tried to really make it as DETAILED as possible so that ANYONE can make complex themes using this.

    I forgot to mention one more thing. If you guys use it, please credit me. I know it's not something that's "revolutionary" or anything, and anyone could have figured it out - but it was a b**** putting this stuff together. I mean, come on.... 220 blank icons! 99 springjumps! Difficult? YES! I certainly don't need that many for my themes, but I figure... just in case, ya know.

    All I ask is that you refer to this method, if you use it, as KATS method and somehow mention me or whatever. It's just the "nice" thing to do.

    Sweet. You know, blkcadi, a frontpage spotlight on this would be nice ^_^. Just a thought... You know, no more spending hours installing themes is kind of a big thing, lol.

    I made it for those of us who don't have connections and have someone who can make us an 8 column springboard =P

    Did you manage to make springjumps for pages 10 & 11? Just curious.

    does WinterBoard allow wallpaper per page on page 10 11?? or spotlight????
    do you know?? I haven't tried... btw send me your skype-name via PM...
    and your email adress I will add you to the beta testers for free..

    Yeah, winterboard allows per-page wallpaper on 10 and 11. Spotlight, as far as I know, is un-themeable. I have looked through all the folders in the iPhone for images relating to Spotlight and found nothing. It's probably built in the OS somewhere.

    You can theme the spotlight wallpaper by naming it wallpaper.png, but that also themes any page without a custom wallpaper. That's the only way I know of...
    P.S. I will be using KATS for my theme and will definitely credit you.

    Oh well, yeah, you could do that too. But I tend to use widgets that end up showing up on spotlight.

    jepp same here....

    widgets can only be hidden if covered by the perpagewallparer (Page0-Page11)

    I hope someone finds out how to do it or that winterboard will integrate it someday

  17. #16
    Did you try Page-1 or PageS, as stupid as those sound

  18. #17
    if you are trying to show a widget that being covered up by the perpagewallpaper you have to make the area where the widget is transparent. not sure if thats what you guys were talking about but if so thats what I did for my theme.

    kinda off topic but has anyone made a springjump to the search page?

    and good job k.nitsua i will try to use this with my theme as well

    okay began to try this yesterday with my theme so far so good just a couple of questions.

    1.Am i supposed to have any apps showing or is it just the webclips and the springjumps or just the default apps, the web clips and spring jumps.

    2.Just want to make sure i got this down right so after a user has resprung to my springback file they would have to drag lets say a game and then put it where "replace with a game" webclip is and then afterwards delete that webclip?

    Some pictures attached, the second pic is where im keeping all my apps is that supposed to be there (questions #1)
