    Found a wallpaper of hello kitty for iPad that i like;

    Getting iPad3, Original iPad gift for niece. Need Help theme!-hello-kitty-ipad-background3.jpg

    Can't find a Pink iPad keyboard...

    Using theme "PRETTY PINK THEME" and i still cant use my own wallpapers. I choose user wallpaper and user lock background but it still does not work.

    Any help?

    OK the themes are not compatible with winterboard, so i have to replace the original background. Since i have to do it anyway I have a question Can I edit "PINK AND SMOOTH" theme with "PRETTY PINK THEME" battery and my own wallpaper? can it be done by SSH?

    Ok first trial of the combine Themes;

    Working;

    1. Battery icons from the other theme

    2. Pink icons from other theme that where not available on "PINK AND SMOOTH"

    3. Inside the slider is says "Hello Kitty" in pink (have not find a replacement for the actual slider)

    4. Connection bar and internet working satus bar are now "hello kitty'

    Not Working;

    1. Wallpaper is sideways and I had to re-size it on Photoshop lower to 320 x 480 (iphone rez, don't know where to change the resolution higher on the theme, left inside the ipad rez picture with name "Wallpaper@2x")

    2. When I open a folder i get a iphone size background behind the apps instead of the normal entire black ipad background when you open a folder.

    3. Can't find Pink ipad keyboards and the iphone obviously don't work

    4. Can't find Hello Ketty Slider on cydia

    5. Can't find a recent pink theme with more pink icons to add to the theme

    A few more things to fix/find but it look's promising. She will love it!! here is the file of what i have so far...

    PLZ HELP IF YOU CAN...

    Here is the file;

    https://rapidshare.com/files/4210913...heme.theme.zip

    Ok I have teh icon to replace the lock screen it's in the "com.apple.TelephonyUI" of the file I posted. How do I make it the slider for the lock screen?

    Moved the 6 slider icon files to "com.apple.springboard"

    Re spring and still nothing...

    Bought Color Keyboard HD from cydia got the ipad pink keyboard.

    LOOKS GREAT!!!

    And fixed the slider lock screen icon;

    Inside the com.apple.TelephonyUI folder, you'll find three (3) .png images:

    bottombarknobgray.png
    bottombarknobgreen.png
    bottombarknobred.png

    Add a capital "T" to the end of the name of each of these three files (e.g. bottombarknobgrayT.png).

    Not Working; (YET)

    1. Wallpaper is sideways and I had to re-size it on Photoshop lower to 320 x 480 (iphone rez, don't know where to change the resolution higher on the theme, left inside the ipad rez picture with name "Wallpaper@2x")

    2. Can't find a recent pink theme with more pink icons to add to the theme

    Added Lust SBSettings Pink, looks OK... Will post Pictures of how it looks right now.

    Well deleted the wallpaper.png form the theme and use normal ipad way to add different wallpaper/lock screen and it works. Which makes me believe the problem is the name of the wallpaper in the theme. Also I'm looking how lo add the "Lust SBSettings Pink" to the theme, making safari progress bar from blue to pink, a pink icon set for the ipod music player app/multitask quick audio pink icons/lock screen pick audio control icons, pink border icon set in pink and a app like "makeitmine" that works on the current iOS to change carrier name...

    Again any help will be greatly appreciated...

    Are you planning on distributing this theme on cydia?
    If not why does it matter if you have to manually change certain files e,g assign a theme to sb settings?

    1. im confused as to what your asking, you can change the wallpaper of the springboard and lock screen independently by going settings>wallpaper

    2. If you ARE creating this as an installed theme, you can apply certain dependancies when you compile the .deb so that the sbsettings theme is installed as well (if you want to no how todo this, google idiots guide to creating cydia packages)

    3. If you are thumbing via winter board, create a folder structure like this:
    MobileSafari.app
    URLProgress.png < this being the colour you want

    4. If MIM isn't working, you can change your carrier text via SBsettings by going:
    More
    System Options
    Custom Carrier

    Well the safari URL progress bar is done still working on pick buttons for the music players...

    Getting iPad3, Original iPad gift for niece. Need Help theme!-ipad-theme-14.jpg

    She is 8 years old I want a complete install so if there is any trouble its easy to fix it all at once.

    Will look for "idiots guide to creating cydia packages" LOL I'm a civil engineer not a computer but I have been a geek all my live. It's just that I have never done a Theme for iOS.

    I will love to Upload the Theme when finish to cydia, i know there are a lot of girls that will get the old ipad when ipad 3 comes out. Don't know how to make a deb. though, I have use Linux for years from Red Hat to Ubuntu now but I have never done a deb. install package...

    The problem with the wallpaper is that when i add the file to the theme it's sideways and zoom in. If I re size the image to iphone size is still sideways (look at the fist pictures). I also don't know how to add a lock screen picture to the theme.

    Nope even on SB the carrier cahnge is not working for me hhhhmmmmm
