RocketSauce HD by TCcentex
UPDATE 1/15/13: An “…ios7Patch.theme” has been added to the main theme package. If you are running ios7 on your device, ONLY SELECT THE ios7Patch ON YOUR WINTERBOARD LIST – the other theme options are intended for ios6 and below, and may in some cases (certain .plists, widgets, etc) be unstable or simply non-functional on ios7.
Also, please understand that Apple changed SO MUCH in the way that images are displayed when they abandoned the skeuomorphic design style, that themes on ios7 will look and operate VERY DIFFERENTLY from what you’re used to on ios6 and below. Here are a couple examples:
- ICONS DO NOT “AUTO-SKIN” LIKE THEY DID BEFORE (App Store icons or Cydia icons via IconHarvestor, ThemeIconMaker, etc). Apple eliminated a very important image (AppIconShadow@2x) themers used to apply effects ON TOP of the AppIconMask@2x image to display frames, custom colors, etc. SO - In order for a particular app’s icon to be displayed on your springboard with custom effects showing, there has to be an icon with those desired effects in the proper bundle folder in the theme’s “Folders” or “Bundles” folder.
- ALMOST ALL THE UI IS NOW A BASIC BLACK “SHAPE” MASK THAT HAS A SOLID COLOR APPLIED TO IT VIA CODING. Again, when Apple abandoned the skeuomorphic design style they used in the past, they also eliminated the “static images” themer’s used to customize with an array of effects and colors. For now, we’re very limited to just changing some shapes of UI images which the iOS then applies those solid colors to. Winterboard is also not applying some of these revised UI masks we’re doing too, so there may be more updating to Winterboard before that is even fully functional.
UPDATE 3/1/13 - Major graphical overhaul - new, cleaner images and overall look - updated for iOS 6.1.x and updated to work on both iPhone/iPod 4's and the new iPhone/iPod 5
Hello all - long time no see. For those of you who don't know me, I am the creator of iFusion HD, 1derful HD, and most recently a co-creator of E is for Ezra. For the past few months I've been laying low, and waiting for the theme-juices to start bubbling up again and they have indeed manifested in my next and most amazing work to date, ROCKETSAUCE HD. This theme is my crown jewel - the culmination of everything that I've learned from all the themes I've worked on over the past year and a half since getting into this racket, and I'm very excited to present it to you now that it's complete.
To give you some background on my style, I consider myself a theming traditionalist. You won't find any confusing widgets, smidgets or midgets in any of my work -- it's truly plug-and-play - check it off in winterboard, respring and change your pants (although MANY gracious and talented modders have created all of the above, which will be made available as add-ons). I LOVE UI - I take tremendous pride in painstakingly working on all the little images that most themers find too time-consuming and difficult, so every button, even the progress loaders are a true work of art. I took 2 weeks to get the progress loaders just right - if I don't think it's perfect I scrap it and start over again -- you'll see. I also like making my work appear with "depth" - meaning I want you to look at your device and think the images are actually coming out at you, that the detail and textures used will make you think that when you place your lucky fingers on the screen, you'll actually be able to FEEL the steel of the icons, the fabric-like texture of the wallpaper... You will not be disappointed.
So go to Cydia and get your copy... ROCKETSAUCE HD.

According to the US Copyright Office (U.S. Copyright Office - Copyright in General (FAQ) ):
- When is my work protected?
Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.
- Do I have to register with your office to be protected?
No. In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created. You will have to register, however, if you wish to bring a lawsuit for infringement of a U.S. work. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section “Copyright Registration.”
- Why should I register my work if copyright protection is automatic?
Registration is recommended for a number of reasons. Many choose to register their works because they wish to have the facts of their copyright on the public record and have a certificate of registration. Registered works may be eligible for statutory damages and attorney's fees in successful litigation. Finally, if registration occurs within 5 years of publication, it is considered prima facie evidence in a court of law. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section “Copyright Registration” and Circular 38b, Highlights of Copyright Amendments Contained in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA), on non-U.S. works."
Even if a copy was purchased legitimately you do not have the legal right to distribute unauthorized copies. According to the “First-Sale Doctrine” established in 1908, you do have the right to give away or sell the copy that you purchased, for profit or not, at your discretion. But ONLY ONCE. If you make a copy of this theme and place a link online for others to download for free you are violating copyright law by making or providing a mechanism to produce an infinite number of unauthorized copies, and I have every legal right to seek compensatory or statutory damages for each unauthorized download you facilitate.
I have registered RocketSauce and am awaiting documentation from the US Copyright Office. Here is a copy of the confirmation email:

I'm surprised that I didn't get the standard.. "What's the exact day it will be released?" -- question --I was waiting for it so I could say that I hope to have it done by this weekend, but my schedule has been crazy -- I'm a recently-crowned single-Dad of a 13-year old daughter (which I absolutely LOVE), have a very demanding career that I work during the day from the office and often into the night from my business laptop at home, and haven't had nearly enough of the free time needed to sit and work at this wonderful hobby that I'm really happy to be excited about again. So this weekend is the goal, but I intentionally waited to even start a thread until I was 90% done with it. Keep an eye out - things are going to move fast! (God willing )
-- Seriously though -- the final product will be a basic springboard theme with no widgets, crazy stuff or things that will cause most users (like me) that don't hold a doctorate degree in "iPhone-ology" from pulling out their hair to set up a theme - it's truly plug-and-play. I'll make a "Modder's PSD Pack" that I'll put on the first post so if any of you techie-gurus want to go crazy with my layer effects and crank out all kinds of super-dooper extras, I certainly won't stand in the way. But I've accepted that I'm an ARTIST - not a Developer
