Thread: [BETA RELEASE/WIP] eZuneHD
03-08-2010, 12:43 PM #1[BETA RELEASE/WIP] eZuneHD
hey yo guys
This is my first post in here, so I wanna say hello to y'all :P
So, here's something that I actually made all today.
Everything's made by me, I was just inspired by the real Zune HD.
Take a look at these screenies:
It's just the springboard to date..
But will be upgrading the whole UI to look more zune alike.
I'm a newbie in theming though.
Any comments and criticism would be really appreciated.
Ah, almost forgot, the theme works perfect with infiniboard and springjumps. No categories nor stacks needed.
Well, of course both of them should work with it though :P
Any news and updates will be posted here
BETA 2 is here!
A little preview:
*most of the icons with brand new look (some of them need some more work though)
*iconoclasm layout (much easier to rearrange the icons without using iBlank)
*font and icon template to create your own icons
*a few extra wallpapers to fit the theme design
Download Zune HD by eZie [BETA2].rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
Some of the icons are partly visible on the previous pages, so I'll fix them as soon as I have some free time
What to expect in the next beta?
*App loading screens
*Different wallpaper for each page like media, utilities etc
I'm also waiting for your suggestions
Constructive criticism highly welcomed
BETA 3 IS HERE!
Just a lil' preview:
Install it and you will find even more changes than just the icons
Hope you like it, making those icons was a real pain in the ***.

If you need any wallpaper or ideas be sure to ask
03-09-2010, 09:01 PM #12
thank you for the wallpaper. i Have had my own zune theme i made running on my phone for a while but never shared it, but this wallpaer makes it look ten times better.

Okay, when I have some time I'll send what I got to both of you there's no modified UI for now though, it's just the springboard.
Okay, so here is the first beta:
Download Zune HD by eZie [BETA].rar from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way
This is just for testing purposes.
For now no PSD templates for icons etc included.
It's released for those who want to help me out with improving the theme.
If you download and install it, it would be highly appreciated if you posted some thoughts and ideas on how to make it even better/what to change.
Thanks and enjoy.
Icon templates, fonts and some other things will be included in some future beta/final release.

what help do you need? screenshots from zune hd's?
edit: wow, this is great. love the feel and look of it. here are my suggestions
the settings, music, math, and clock icons look GREAT with their black and white, icons to the left of the words.
the ones with color icons, like safari and contacts don't look very good, i would suggest going with the simpler feel.
also, since swiping between pages would look bad, how about this: make an icon for spring jump 0 several different times, so each page besides the first has a "home" icon in each "menu". that way they can just hit that to go back to page 0, or the main menu.
get what i'm saying?

with your theme can you use iconoclasm instead of iblanks would be alot easier

I am using it. I was suggesting to the OP to incorperate into his theme because he wanted a way to install without putting in all the blanks
I have an iconoclasm layout for this that I made with the iconoclasm layout builder software that I got off of modmyi was simple to create and use
Rocking this theme on my phone currently and I have to say I agree with lolcats that the simple icons are cool but the pictures just don't fit

Your theme is looking awesome, I started working on a zune like theme also once infiniboard was released. I used your wallpaper/lockbackground.
I would agree with lolcats1, keep it simple. The theme looks great because of it simplistic icons. I made my own icons with helvetica light/ ultra light. I'm using 5 column SB and iblanks/blank null ( I would use iconoclasm but I don't want to pay for it.) I have also made a bunch of default.png for some apps. I tried to make them look like they match the style of this theme.
I also agree using spring jumps to return to home would work a lot better then tapping the home button since it is instant and doesn't pass through any of the other screens you have, also some people may be using the home button for something else in activator and would not be able to use the home button to do this anyway.
Here are a couple of more screenshots of what I have done.
I am including a .theme file, it has a moded info.plist so you will not have to have the docked/undocked icons transparent selected in winterboard anymore.
Feel free to use any/all of this theme in your theme if you want. @eZie if you want any PSD files send me a message and I can email you them.
The theme is looking great keep up the good work. Looking forward to the full release.

Guys, the main problem is I'm a newbie in theming
It's just my first theme.
I would love to use iconoclasm, cause I heard it's good for such a things, but next problem is I don't really know how to use it.
About the icons, thanks for your suggestions, I'll consider them and probably make a little simpler icons, without those colorful pictures.
First offf, I have to install all the stuff right on my iPhone, I restored it yesterday.

Ezio, I like yours better than the other persons who posted on this thread. I am a noob themer as well. Just focus on working for yourself, it makes things a lot easier. Don't worry about satisfying everyone else, making something you like
