Thread: iSwitcher v0.5 (Major update)
09-02-2007, 02:38 AM #21
This version of iSwitcher is rockin'...i've got your included themes working and about 6 of my own. Is there a website for this app yet to share themes, or would it be best via modmyi....
Also, would love for iSwitcher to be expanded to include more theme elements - dialer keypad, lock keypad, calculator, etc.
Thanks for the great work, enjoying having multiple themes all switchable from my phone!

Re: Other elements for a complete package. I am keeping that for a later revision and here's why. I'm concerned that if we release a really cool theme-pak with lots of the extra elements it would be great for that one theme but what happens when you load another theme that didn't have all those cool elements? That's right, no you've got some mongrel theme that you just know will look like ***** (the dock is a good example, if you load the Matrix theme and then load the OEM theme, if I forgot to include the OEM dock it would not look good) In order to deal with that and prevent it I need to have the install process basically load all the stock images before it loads the new theme. I was thinking about implementing some preferences but that really won't prevent the problem I just described.
My goal was to have an actual theme section on MMi but I'm not sure I've finalized the design on everything just yet. I'm thinking about adding some extra information to the Info.plist file (it's a wild thought).
Sorry, I guess I'm a little protective and want to make sure I've got a quality product

CyberGreg, I like that the GunMetal 4 theme with the wires was added to v.65, Thank you! I also like the idea of having a dedicated theme download section for iSwitcher themes. Keep up the good work, by far my favorite app for the iPhone. what are the differences in v.65 vs v.5, are the themes interchangable?

If you guys are willing to upload your themes, I can pop a sub-section up there for iSwitcher themes. Anybody?

All right, sub category added.

Organik Themes for iSwitcher
Can't seem to upload to this category, just get returned to the add file screen. Is there a size limit? My zip is 8.6mb...doesn't seem like too much.
Until the category is working, my themes for iSwitcher can be downloaded HERE

Yah 8.6 MB is a little big for the PHP upload, it gets time out errors. Is that ONE theme?

Not sure whats going on.
Launching Switcher goes from the black screen with the grey top to just a black screen.
iSwitcher in place
Themes in place
If BSD has been installed do I need to load your unix files, last time i didnt.
This is after a fresh restore so nothing is conflicting.
I had the old version working just fine.
Can I run a master display order file? That was the largest PITA with the old one that everytime I added a new theme or app I had to modify each theme's display order so the file or app didnt show up on the screen. I used it in conjunction with iLauncher. Can I ditch the display order in the zip file if I use a global theme display order?

I accidently erased my Themes folder and now I can't get the iSwitcher program to restore!! What did I do?
Nevermind........I got it after a bit.
The biggest problem with custom themes so far is creating the zip file. I've found you can not use the "create archive" command in OS X. The file, so far, must be created with the 'ditto' command. I have not tested a zip file made on a Windows PC.
