    No. As of now the keyboard cannot be themed.

    On a different subject:
    Is there a way to make sure that the time on my status bar stays white whenever i get into an app (i.e. into the "Silver" status bar)? I ask because I have my status bar as always black so the black time is really difficult to see.

    These all go in the UIImages Folder in your theme.
    I hope that helps some.

    Now if I could get my weather to work I'd be done...
    Thanks a lot, finally got my Signal bar theme to work.

    Does anyone else notice though that the signal bars go back to normal if you go into the default weather app?

    Yeah, it works in every other app, and on the home screen, but when it loads the weather app, it goes back to normal...

    Actually it seems Winterboard isn't even working inside the weather app

    Seems it's not just the weather app, but also Cydia and Youtube

    So with the new 4.0 Stock folder out for public use, I have but one question... or two. I noticed that you still have the old com."xxx".apple folder, but some of those folders also sports a "framework" folder. Do need to theme both exactly alike or do you only theme one or the other?

    Create this folder and in EACH of your themes that utilize auto create....

    /private/var/stash/Themes/theme.theme/Bundles/com.apple.mobileicons.framework

    You just need to put the "AppIconMask.png" and the "AppIconShadow.png" that was originally in UIImages into the new location. This does not skin the Phone, Contacts, iPod, Mail, Weather, Calender, Photos, YouTube, Notes, Settings, Clock, Text/SMS. This also doesn't change the quick switcher icons unless you have all your icons themed in the icons folder.


    and maybe:

    GhostlyIconMask.png

    found in the /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    Has anyone figured out why the battery pngs are off for black? For instance if I change "Black_BatteryDrainingInsides.png" to a different color, it makes it outside the battery background? Any ideas?

    Silver_BatteryDrainingInsides.png
    Silver_BatteryDrainingInsidesLow.png = 3 x 8 px

    Black_BatteryDrainingInsides.png
    Black_BatteryDrainingInsidesLow.png = 3 x 7 px

    so there is a pixel missing hence it doesn't align

    Edit: though I haven't found a Silver_BatteryDrainingBG.png...

    Hey so I made a white ui theme but i'm stuck as to how to change the font color. It's too light and I would rather change the color via the theme and not use fontswap. Anyone know where I could change a plist or something?

    Nope this isn't the problem, I tried both rescaling the Silver to 3x7 and just coloring the original 3x7 green, and it still throws the inside of the battery, outside. Hell, I tried just adding the stock os 4.0 black battery draining image to my UIImages folder and it still did it... must be a programming issue.

    Yep def programming. I am currently using a themed Silver_BatteryDrainingBG.png and Black_BatteryDrainingBG.png with the stock BatteryDrainingInsides.png. It lines up fine If the BatteryDrainingInsides.png(s) are not in the UIImages folder. However the BatteryDrainingBG.png(s) are now 21x20 instead of 23x20.

    i figured out my icon mask problems:

    A icon mask must be exported from photoshop as a 24bit png.

    I made the battery insides 3x20 and centered them on my battery image to put them in the correct place.
