Yea the spinning wheels are in the other.artwork file... but you can just like the apple when the phone boots they don't change... well actually the ones that are in the status bar change but when ever they are changes there seems like there is a lot of static or something in them... well that is just my personal experience... i have been trying to change them for sometime... but maybe with pawnage you can change it eventually

The Other.artwork file is located in:
Note: You have to unpack the artwork file to see the hundreds of PNGs located within.

Make a folder somewhere on your computer named "artwork". Inside that folder create another folder named "pngs". Download iphoneshop-0.72, should find it here.... Link
After you download the file place it in your "artwork" folder as well
Ok, now browse to your "System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework" folder on your phone using whatever program you get into the iPhone from your computer. Save the other.artwork file in your artwork folder.
I use a Windows PC, so this is where it may start differing from you if you use Apple.
Click on "start", "Run" and type "cmd". Hit OK. This should bring up the black command prompt screen.
In command prompt type "cd (then the listing where your artwork folder is located)" without the ""
(For example mine would be cd CUsers\Doomi\Desktop\iPhonestuff\artwork)
and press enter. The directory listing on Command Prompt should change to your artwork folder.
Now copy and paste the following line into your command prompt screen
java -jar iPhoneShop-0.72.jar ARTWORK Other.artwork export pngs
Your command prompt should now scroll through a bunch of lines, and when it stops you should now have a bunch of .png files in your "pngs" folder.
When you have edited the files to your liking, save them and make sure they are all still located in your pngs file with everything else. Now, back in your command prompt, make sure your still pointing at the artwork file, and copy and paste this in and press enter:
java -jar iPhoneShop-0.72.jar ARTWORK Other.artwork import pngs
Your command prompt should do a lot of scrolling again, and when it is finished you should have a new Other.artwork file located in your "pngs" folder. Replace the same file on your iPhone with this new one and you should be good to go.
If you are on a Mac you might want to take a look at this link as the steps are the same, just the command prompt is different. Mac
Hopefully this works for you.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Are you wanting to replace the dock at the bottom of your homescreens? I am slightly confused as to what black pattern you are talking about.
04-18-2008, 08:26 AM #10
@doomi i mean the blackbaground (pattern) , i already change my Dock i don't know how to change the big one back on the icon.
Thank for you're reply

So, you are wanting to change the wallpaper on your homescreen?
If that is what you are wanting to do, unfortunately as far as I know right now you need Summerboard installed. I can try to find that file when I get home from work and see if it is accessable without Summerboard.

ok so you mean to tell me that in order to change the spinning wheel icon, you have to change the Other.artwork file? cuz I used to have a glowing apple and now it changed back to spinning wheel so I'm trying to get it back to the glowing apple.
but it says 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
What to do plz?
