Thread: Name for my WinterBoard fork

Name for my WinterBoard fork
(This is my first thread on ModMyi so please tell me if I'm doing anything wrong.)
I am planning to fork the source code of WinterBoard by saurik and make it work without having to respring.
SnowLeo_ asked me on Twitter to include DreamBoard integration, so if someone changes their home screen theme with DB, it will also turn on any WinterBoard themes that they want to be used at the same time.
He also referred me to PathKiller29, who is interested in helping me.
While I'm capable of making this tweak happen, I am not good at thinking of creative names for anything. So, if you can think of a name for the tweak, please tell me in this thread. I will be choosing the best name on the 8th of September.
Thanks for your help and I look forward to seeing the ideas you have.

For starters he's using a different tool chain, either on Linux or the phone itself.
So using his make file is different, so I take what I need and make my own, then I get a bunch or deprication errors.
I figure his compiler doesn't yell at him when simethings deprecated, theos can't even build with a simple warning.

I'm going to try and see if I can find the deb for libgcc somewhere online and then install gcc.

I just installed it...
Only getting tons of permission denied errors, even after chmod'ing them all to 755

another MMi thread, I found an archive of the iPhonos (iPhone OS) 2.0 header files and I'm just installing them now. I'll try to compile WB once I'm done.
Edit: Are you compiling the source while running as root? Apparently mobile can't access some files required for gcc to run.

Glad to see you guys are getting further on this by working together. Really wish I could help but my coding knowledge is very limited. I really hope you guys could get this to work because Winterboard with no resprings would be awesome especially if you could integrate it with DreamBoard.
Lol when I was thinking of names it occured to me that all of the seasons except Fall were used- Winterboard, Summerboard, Springboard. So why not FallBoard or AutumnBoard lol. Or ThemeBoard. SkinBoard. CoverBoard. InstantBoard. Quickboard. EnhanceBoard (that ones for you pathkiller lol). Blackboard. Whiteboard. Colorboard. ImBoard. Lol. You could also do something like WinterPanel or Winterwall or WinterPlank. I still kinda like your WinnerBoard better than my suggestions though

I kinda forgot about WinnerBoard because the name would be easily confused with WinterBoard.
I'll give you the link to my repo on GitHub as soon as I change the name in the code.

That's an inside joke that SnowLeo started ...why don't u ever try this hard when I ask snow?
Have u gotten it compiled yet?
As is recall, I'm pretty sure I'm the one who mentioned adding a UI to DreamBoard, when i told himi found the WinterBoard Source code.
than he never got it out of his head...
been trying for a month!

Question. Have u actually tested this method?
Because from my experience the images aren't reloaded until ur kill the app,that's why we respring(it's really just relaunching an app) ull need to reload the images...

I just ran that and it spat out a hello file in documents folder...
Does that mean that this worked?

Also, are you using the iPhonos 2.0 headers from this thread, or newer ones from the SDK?
