    I agree. There's no other theme that looks so clear and it doesn't need a UI

    And the circle jerk begins. Look, I'm not saying Jaku isn't beautiful. If it weren't I wouldn't have been here making icons for it for the last nine months.
    However, to say anything else is a downgrade is honestly doing those other themes a disservice.
    I've been working on a theme myself for about four months; something I've kept to myself until now, and if it's just another "downgrade", I think I'll keep it to myself frankly.
    A lot of work goes into a theme; ANY theme, and although I do agree that Will has created something truly unique and absolutely stunning to look at, it's also not the only thing out there.
    It's like only listening to one genre of music or eating peanut butter and jelly all the time. You need variety some times.
    I haven't used Jaku on my phone for months. It's there, but I've been using every other theme I can get my hands on to learn, experiment and create my own thing... I could only hope it would be received fractionally as positively as Jaku has, but I'm beginning to see that isn't the case.
    And since I'm sort of the outsider now anyway, I don't think it's important.

    I wish you all luck with Jaku. I truly do. I'm going to go work on my downgrade now...

    When something comes along that inspires me to go beyond making cut & paste icons the way Jaku has, I'll switch. Until then, I don't need variety. I prefer familiarity over variety anyway. We're all different. That's why there are so many themes out there.

    C'mon CB.. Three or four posts about sticking to Jaku because it's an awesome piece of work is hardly a circlejerk.
    I have plenty of respect for other (quality) themers but IMO Jaku is better than anything else out there, so I've got no interest in changing up (or down) in any hurry at all.

    Good luck with your theme dude. I'm keen to see it.

    Well i try probably all theme. i use part of some with Jaku. Even though they are really nice and fully complete... I come back to just Jaku. I suggest doing a Ui. Dont need it but why not add to it. Let face it.. where to go from here? Jaku 2? or just a ios6 upgrade? this theme is a classic and we shouldnt let it die. more is always better right? ;-)

    I'm still reppin' this theme, and probably will not change winterboard themes in a VERY long time, but I'm open to other themes, don't get me wrong, it's just that Jaku has raised the bar.

    Am I the best artist out there? That's laughable. Am I the best artist even in Cydia? I would actually say that I am not even that. FIF7Y's Boss theme is stunning (to name one). I appreciate those that have showered me with praise, but I am fully aware of my own weaknesses and where my skills are severally lacking.

    Sadly, hard work and dedication just don't guarantee a winner. This reminds of a similar discussion back in uni. Our professor put it plainly: you aren't marked on your hard work. Some kids need a solid month to churn out a "B" paper. Refining and refining over dozens of hours; struggling for the majority of that time. Others can come in and fire off an "A" paper in a single night. Now, they get their grades back and talk about their experiences. How raw does Student A feel knowing he spent 30+ hours on his paper to get a lower mark than Student B who did it between MSN'ing his buddies? I exaggerate, but we aren't that far off sometimes.

    Naturally having the ability to produce quality designs takes immense practice, but even then, no matter how much someone struggles, they just may never push past their rightful plateau. I'd love to be able to program, but not matter how much I try, I fear I will always find code does not come natural to me. It would be an uphill battle the entire way. That's the complexity of life; nothing is so cut and dry as you work hard and become the best. Sadly, being the best takes hard work, dedication, and a bucket full of natural ability; the latter of which can't be manufactured in any way, shape or form.

    I read an article a few weeks ago about a firm that spent 400,000 pounds to produce a game (Whale Trail). They got a 100,000 pound return on their investment. They published a short "documentary" chronicling the "ordeal." At the time, Tiny Wings won out and became a run-a-way hit. But it exemplifies what I said above. They busted their *** making the game, but if you play it (it's freemium now), you'll see it's actually not all that terrific. Are there worse? Absolutely. Are there better? Most certainly. Did they deserve to make millions? That's certainly debatable. Winners and losers aren't chosen by their commitment unfortunately. It's required, and necessary, but it's not the only variable that leads to success.

    The point is, everyone has an opinion on the subjective. And when people call the statue of David a masterpiece (it is btw, but there are other fine sculptures to be sure), they aren't saying that other sculptures are pure crap (even if they use the word, "downgrade" as in this case). It's just that they put that particular piece of art at the top of their list. Everyone needs a favorite something. So many shades of grey between the black and the white.
