Don't know if this is a bad time, but could I have a whole ui built for this theme with the Japanese Jaku logo monogrammed every where? And I expect it by tomoro. Thank you.
Also could please tell me how I would force me to like my iPhone layout? TIA

I'm honored your using it Chaotic and am using many of your Jaku icons. I like the theme but you can't really do much to it to personalize it. I felt this thread was too tightly controlled as far as requests etc. were handled but I honestly agree with you now. Boss is nice but not polished. And 90% of the pages are just the same questions over and again and ridiculous widgets.

I just think that was what everyone here was trying to prevent. There is still ridiculous, untapped potential in both Jaku and boss, and we SHOULD be helping those who don't have quite the same skill, knowledge or tools, but I'm trying to mod my phone too and I think those people making the requests sometimes forget that our job isn't to be a ready-made-icon and mod factory.
I've seen a number of posts that start out like, "I've already asked for these three times. blah blah gimme."
I've started dropping those requests into my ignore list. If making this stuff was easy, they'd already be doing it. If the time it takes to do the mod is too much for someone to wait, then they don't get it at all.
I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I've seen them swarming you for your LS mods. All I can think is, "Poor guy probably just wants to make another one for his phone but here he is stuck doing the same mod 45 different ways and people are still d*cks." <-- By the way mods, I typed the asterisk myself, just like in every other post so back the h*ll off.....
Anyway, I'm still going to develop for boss, and I'm planning to complete my own mod this weekend that basically removes the branding. I've made a satin icon frame too, so it will be a complete theme mod and if I'm not mistaken, it's going to be pretty well received.
Hope to work with you going forward man... Bad blood under the bridge...

One of the variant mods. Sort of a mother-of-pearl thing I'm going for.
I've also managed to fix the weird edges on the inner effects layer.
btw, the Gameboy icon in there is the work of KnightWing.
lol. Apparently I'm still a pirate according to the boss people. I think I've given them my last icon.
What makes it funny is it all started when I BOUGHT boss. The themeit app gave me some static. Turned out to be a known conflict with something else I had installed. FIF7Y contracted me and told me how to fix it. It did. However, some of the guys went rabid on me and it's still there I guess.
I don't think this would bother me if I actually had stolen it, but I posted my receipt to try and clear my name. No go.... Do I really want to give money or time to a group that's going to accuse me of piracy even after I prove that I bought the theme? Nah....

Sooo...back to Jaku?
I think I'll be ditching my whole idea of making everything white. Too difficult to get every icon made, and there are much more black icons than white. Goodbye white Jaku. You were great while you lasted. Thanks for all the help bjbinc and anonymous helping me make white icons, it was and is greatly appreciated. I will continue to keep them saved, just in case...
(Still wanting a Major Mayhem icon )

They don't appreciate me or my work, fine. I'm actually doing these mods for me anyway. I share because sometimes people like what I do, but I don't feel compelled to share any of my boss work; especially now and especially with them.
07-13-2012, 04:42 PM #11249
@chaotic ya that is some messed up crap, I had the same issue with boss, it was due to EPHD I had to uninstall it then install boss.
I will admit that I am a bit of a leach, as I am very new to PS I do try to share something if I can.
I dont understand how to cut out an image to give it clean lines my always look all jagged.
Just curious have you ever made any thing gold in PS that was the first thing that got me wanting to learn photoshop., but I do believe gold is one of the hardest things to master in PS.
Anyway sorry for my off topic post
Back on track from now on.

I had a theme called "boss status icons" because "boss" means cool, or awesome to an old California boy like me.
Although it contained absolutely ZERO actual boss.ios components, the ThemeIt app saw the name and FLIPPED out.
One of the super mods over there contacted me privately to help me walk through the problem because we didn't want to spam the thread with it.
We got the problem resolved, I downloaded the app and it installed perfectly. All I did was rename my theme to "cool status icons".
It was that simple. That is what's been getting me accused of piracy.
Gold is tough. I haven't really gotten shiny metals down, but I can do brushed and satiny pretty well now. I've been playing with silvers, but I'm not to gold yet.

Whats the point of braggin' stuff in a jaku thread go over to the boss.ios thread and discuss it.
Keep on topic here for jaku and go discuss another theme in the other thread.
So if anybody need icons, please request i can make.
07-13-2012, 04:51 PM #11252
I'll keep it to myself though.. in fact I'm keeping a lot to myself right now....
Master of the infinite Ignore List....
Also, number 2 of the top 10 downloaded Jaku artists...
^ Think about that before you accuse me of anything but contributing to this theme.

and btw where are all the cb haters at? Chaotic you always talk about people dissing you and sending you hate mail and not appreciating what you do but where is all this hate, i never see anyone taking shots at you
youve always been cool in my book, so i dont get where the haters come from
07-13-2012, 05:01 PM #11255
Although I will agree with something you said. I don't get where the hate is coming from either.
I've done nothing but contribute to this group and this theme. My time and my own money to grow that DropBox everyone loves so much.
Some way to show appreciation. I'm still scratching my head as to why I'm back here.

i wasent beeing a jack a ss i was just pointing it out, too much OT imo.
This is the Jaku thread and i was not pointing out who has contributed the most or not, i was simply stating that this is for a fact a jaku thread, go ahead be OT as hell, but imo keep jaku in jaku and boss in boss, don't mix em, i honestly though for a second i was browsing the wrong thread.

I don't mean to sound like I'm trying to off-topic spam. That was not my intent and as it was taken that way, I will back off. I'll share on Twitter where there is no topic to get off of.....
You guys can go back to all the Jaku modding discussions I interrupted.... I apologize...
