    I've been reading through the thread in the earlier parts and get that you have to follow the directions and stuff. But when I save the image tiles to my iPod and try to add them to the Tile section, they won't do anything. The directions say to make a file (I've made Tile.png, etc.) and add it. But there is no upload option or anything. How do you guys get the icons to show up? I'm deathly confused.
    if you mean how to add a custom tile, i can go through it step by step

    first of all, you need ifile. It's a paid app on cydia, but you can get the free trial (which doesnt seem to have an end date) and be equally capable of doing what you need to do

    next, upload your images onto your idevice from your computer using SSH or something else (like ifunbox for windows, or uploading it to mediafire and downloading it using safari)
    note: safari downloads are stored in user/documents, DO NOT close safari before accessing the file in ifile, elsewise it gets deleted

    once you've got your images on ur idevice and you can access them on ifile, create a folder that's named the same as the ID for your app that you're customizing. It follows the form of com.xxx.xxxx (theres a list of IDs somewhere, i think someone else has a link)

    once you have the folder correctly named (case sensitive), and your tiles are in the folder, move the folder to /user/library/Metroon/Resources/Tiles

    once ur done, respring, and the tile should now appear. Make sure you created both a Tile.png AS WELL AS a [email protected] because it's important you have both (just make two copies of the same tile)

    if you get lost or confused, more detailed instructions can be provided for any particular section of this tutorial. Good luck, and have fun :]

    I've figured out how to do the tiles.

    Is there any way that I can edit the theme to go into a landscape mode? Like this (at 2:35)? The theme is Metro 8.2 for Dreamboard, a lot different from Metroon (Metroon being much, much better). I just love the idea of the landscape mode, has anyone done this or know how to do it?

    Only End can do that, therefore it's not possible.

    Well, since I can't get it in landscape, I suppose I'll have to make do.

    Here's what my interface looks like though.

    Does anyone know if a standalone battery lockscreen would work on this?

    I love the homescreen's simplicity and pretty much everything about Metroon, but when it's charging or syncing, it doesn't change to show me how much battery I have or anything. Could I download a separate lockscreen theme for this so I can see my battery's status?

    If so, what themes would you say match Metroon?

    Thanks!

    There is no way to install a different Lockscreen. Just select the desktop icon before charging. In this case the standard lockscreen will be used.

    Also be aware that some wp themes for winterboard affect the standard lock screen as well so don't freak out if you still are missing your battery if you just use desktop mode when charging

    I love this theme so much, I had it for months and it is just so great.

    However I was wondering if anyone has any wallpapers for the main metroon theme, not like the lock screen but the actual theme. Thank you!

    Somebody had asked me to share this before but accidentally deleted it last time. I ended up redoing it because I wanted to try it again. This is done using summerboard mode with a dashboard x widget and an iWidget and of course iconoclasm. As you can see in the video, it's not perfect but I can share if anybody want my layout and icons

    The little skull in the corner? It's killbackground. Its a very quick and easy way to kill all background apps. My favorite thing is that you can set it to not mess with any music apps like pandora or default music app

    Thanks. Gonna have to investigate more on that one. For folders, have you tried FolderIcons? Would definitely help complete your springboard.

    Yes I did I just didn't add it to the theme I was running at the time. The tweak add an image named [email protected] to the springboard app folder. You can drop it in to the com.apple.springboard bundle to theme it

    SummerBoardWP.zip
    Here is the SB mod I showed earlier. Some quick instructions. Iconoclasm layout goes in "/Library/Iconoclasm/Layout" and should be activated first. After respring then arrange icons as you wish as well as setting up folders. Folder enhancer works nicely with this mod. Then turn on summerboard mode in winterboard and big icons should be in effect. To add you own big tiles just add them to the "Icons" folder and rename them according to the app name that it shows in springboard ex "[email protected] and Photos.png" and make it 200x200 in dimensions to match. My icons have a slight gradient in them so i included a simple psd if you want it to match.

    tips: I found arranging icons more cumbersome when large so thats why i say do that last. If you want big icons in your folders the activate the MetroSB layout in the extras section of iconoclasm.
    Also you can use gridlock tweak to leave yourself empty spaces if you are wanting to add widgets through either dashboardX or iWidgets
