    Post [GUIDE] How to Upload BatteryThemes
    After getting a lot of Emails on how to do this, I decided to Put this Quick Guide up.

    In this Guide you will learn how to Load up New Battery Themes on your iphone


    Note:: This method is a bit outdated - it only works on customize.

    Currently WinterBoard is used to change battery Themes!

    What is this-: There are 17 graphics that represent the different levels of the charge. These are not too hard to change. This is one of the easiest way to make your phone personal..


    Note:: If you used Ziphone to free your Phone - You will need to install Ziphone iBriker Fix from installer * Otherwise iphonebrowser is not going to show your phone as Jailbroken.




    I have made these 3 Battery Themes available via Cydia Please look for Fire battery - Blue fire battery - Firepainter Battery








    -: Few Very Basic things you will need :-
    • Offcourse a Jailbroken iphone [Thanks Dave team,Nate True & everyone Involved in making the Jailbreak Happen]
    • Customize Installed [This can be installed Via Installer if you dont have it]
    • iPhonebrowser [Lets to Browse thru your phone create /delete Folders,Drag files, delete Files & much much more]


    If you don't have iphone browser you can get it here HERE on Google



    iPhoneBrowser







    Assuming you have all the required Stuff we are good to go

    • Hook up the iphone to the computer useing the usb cable [itunes may startup just close it]
    • Now double click iphonebrowser
    • You should see that the iphonebrowser recognized your device and will show the folders on your device in the Left hand side Menu. Refer to the screenshot of iphonebrowser to help you understand a little better
    • Now Look in the left Menu of iphonebrowser All the way at the bottom you will see A Folder called [ Var ]


    Go to The Following Location useing the iphonebrowser

    • Go to Var >>Root>>Liberary>>Customize>>>BatteryImages
    • Now Right Click on BatteryImages & Create a New Folder Under BatteryImages, In this case we Will Name this One "Example" [You can Name this Folder whatever You want]
    • So after creating the new folder we should have this :
    • VAR>>Root>>Liberary>>Customize>>>BatteryImages>>Ex ample

    • If you have the downloaded a Battery theme and extracted it allready You are ready to upload it.... otherwise Hit the download section


    • Open the theme folder and Drag ALL THE FILES from the Theme Folder Into "Example FOLDER"
      In this location

      VAR>>Root>>Liberary>>Customize>>>BatteryImages>>Ex ample


    After All Files are Copied Over You are ready to use the Theme
    GO to Customize on your iphone

    Then go to Battery Images you should see your New Theme There. In this case its under "Example" Refer to ScreenShot for better understanding

    Just click the New battery Image And Press Ok - press Home Key your device will reset if its still plugged in cool if not then plug into Power & if you have done everything correct your new battery should Light up your Face





    Troubleshooting:

    Issues
    • you have all the 17 images show up in Customize
    • You Select your theme and still have the default battery
    • Your Theme doesn't show up in customize
    • All other Issues



    Soultion
    The good thing is that Only Few things can be Wrong

    First Nameing Format for customize

    Wrong Format -: Example_1
    Correct Format -: Example-1


    • Make sure there are only 17 Files in the theme.
    • Make sure all 17 files are Named correctly.


    Naming Format should be as follows-:
    [we are going to name this theme "Example"]

    So this is what it should look like
    • Example
    • Example-1
    • Example-2
    • Example-3
    • Example-4
    • Example-5
    • Example-6
    • Example-7
    • Example-8
    • Example-9
    • Example-10
    • Example-11
    • Example-12
    • Example-13
    • Example-14
    • Example-15
    • Example-16



    ( In some themes u may see that it has Example-17(18Images)that is ok i have tested those on my customize they work !Just make sure the naming Formats are correct)

    What if your Battery Theme consists of a series of images? For instance the Stiletto Theme has BatteryBG_1.png, BatteryBG_2.png.....And so on. When they show up in Customize it shows all the icons. How do I know what one to pick?

    Hey ballaholyk84 you won't be able to use any one those if they are all showing up

    Issue there is that the theme isnt named correctly

    Props to whoever created this theme But the Entire theme isn't named correctly here i corrected it relle quick for u . Jus get it from here
    • Wrong Naming Format: BatteryBG_1.png
    • Correct Nameing Format is: BatteryBG-1.png


    tiger1981 - You should try the same thing .. try looking into Naming formats ..

    nah Shai** is my friend.. he just releases all the Stuff for me..

    Can't have 1 to 100% lol Since the phone is only programmed to handle 17 images... man adding 100 images would be imposssible in customize . but a good idea

    Cool Deal ..
    This is not Bad at all .! I like it .. i u use one of my Slide bar images thru customize.. its a white on .. looks like half Cut .. and then put the car as slider --see how that looks i think it may Work well... since the slider is Dark i think the wallpaper will beed to lighter or vice versa ....

    ill try that right now
    i have my profile avatar blown up and edited to fit as my background and and a little
    "ankit s." as my slider in a cool font
    it works since there is not like a bar image it looks like my name is just sitting there and then u slide the name over

    i like it but im gonna try ur idea right now

    wow they really need to make the back of customize to black so u can actually see all the items

    u said its like a half white?
    i cant seem to find it hmm

    ill keep looking i updated so it hsould be there
    but where is that settings mod?
