    Default A little help with theme-ing please?
    Hey, before I get into my little problem here I figure I should probably introduce myself.
    I'm Regret, and although I've had an account here for a while I've never really done anything on the forums.

    But anyways:
    I started theme-ing a while back. I know how it all works (pretty much) since I looked at other themes to see what folders to use for what and so on, but I'm having a little trouble.
    I've been trying to get a paid package out there so I can make a little money (I'm a teenager, so I sort of need it, y'know?), but the rules say every paid theme MUST have retina screen compatibility. That's all cool and such, but I don't have a fourth generation, so I don't know if it's working or not. Therefore, my first question is, do I have to make a "@2x" image for everything, or only certain things? And do I actually have to resize the image, or just make a renamed copy (assuming the ipod will automatically adapt the renamed images)?

    My other question is a bit different. I want to make my theme REALLY complete. I want to make all the bars, buttons, EVERYTHING different. But when I try to download the images for things like the calculator app and such off my ipod, it says the images are corrupted, even though they're png files. I use linux, so everything is way overcomplicated. Can anyone tell me how to fix the files I pull off of my ipod? Or, better yet, can somebody send me a zip file or something that contains all the files the ipod contains, so I can sort through it all?

    Sincerely,
    Regret

    Hey. First the sizes need to be twice the size of standard. Wallpaper for example needs to be 640X960 where for SD it needs to be 320X480

    Okay, so everything will need to be resized, no matter what the image? (Even if it's something small like the wifi bars?)

    Ah, okay, that clears a lot of things up. Any advice on pulling the image files off of my iPod? I don't need ssh because..well linux is awesome like that, but apple does something to their png's that makes them not work on a pc.

    That's sort of what I'm doing. I'm using Buuf2 since it's one of the most complete free themes out there, but the graphics are all....squiggly?
    So it makes it hard to use it as a base, if that makes sense.
