    So it's that iconCache file. Have u found it yet in the Prefs.app? It contains 30 icons which are displayed in the Settings menu. If you have an iPad u can try copying it from it to your phone. I'm unsure if it will need to be "installed" as such or whether a simple drag and drop will work. That's what I would be trying.

    The "[email protected]" itself. ONE file named exactly as that and as I posted the screenshot a few posts back.

    Yip so that's the issue IMO. Have u got an iPad? They use the same file & put it in there. As I said earlier I don't know whether that will need to be installed or just dragged and dropped in there.

    Assuming nothing else is damaged. Is there "Settings.plist" ??? In there?

    That's the file that talks to the iconCache file.

    Well I'd do a search if u believe its there in iFile but sounds like something's happened and its been damaged or corrupted. I don't know EXACTLY how the iconCache file works but it does reference the PreferenceBundle section of you iOS device and whether it builds it from that I'm not 100% sure. PM me your email and ill send u mine.

    First of all, I'll explain what this is all about. This tutorial explains in detail how to modify the main .artwork file on your iDevice. This .artwork file is loaded with images that make up the UI (User Interface, so graphics) of your iDevice. With this tutorial you learn how to access these images in the .artwork file, so you can modify them. Then you recompile the .artwork with your new "themed" images, put the file back into your iDevice, reboot, and boom you have a customized UI without Winterboard. The advantage of this is that there is NO LAG whatsoever but you need to be CAREFUL when modifying the images because they need to remain the same size and dimension.

    You’ll be using the following tools:
    Python 2.7.x
    Pillow 2.0.0 (PIL)
    iOS Artwork Extractor by developer Dave Peck
    OpenSSH available from Cydia
    SSH Client recommended: Windows: WinSCP, Mac: Cyberduck OR
    iFunBox (Windows and Mac, download the NEWEST ONE)
    Command Prompt/Terminal for entering python commands.

    The .ARTWORK extractor works on iOS 2 - 6. It’s been tested personally on my iPod 4G and iPhone 4 and by others on other devices. According to Dave Peck it works on most .artwork files including, Shared, Shared@2x, Keyboard-Emoji@2x, GameKit@2x etc, EVEN Shared~ipad and Shared@2x~ipad. For this tutorial the [email protected]k will be used for examples because it’s the most common out of all of the .artwork files. To read more about Dave Peck's extractor click HERE.

    Overview: Gets needed tools, SSH into iDevice and get a .artwork file from /System/Library/Frameworks/Ulkit.framework/ and copy it to your Computer. Use Dave's Extractor to extract the files within the .ARTWORK file, edit the extracted files and then recompile them and put it back into your iDevice.

    STOCK iOS 5 and 6 .ARTWORK FILES DOWNLOADS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!

    STEP 1: Getting the Tools
    Download and Install OpenSSH from Cydia. (Search: “OpenSSH”).
    Download and Install a SSH Client (Windows: WinSCP, Mac: Cyberduck) OR iFunBox.
    Download and Install Python 2.7.x install to the default location.
    Download and Install Pillow for the link provided.
    Download iOS Artwork Extractor by clicking the "Downloads" button and select download as zip. Open the folder "davepeck-iOS-artwork-xxxxxx" inside and extract all its contents to your Python installation folder (default Python Installation folder is CPython27 for Windows and /usr/local/bin/python for Mac).

    STEP 2: Getting the .artwork file(s)
    Using your SSH Client or iFunBox, go into /System/Library/Frameworks/Ulkit.framework/ in your iDevice. Copy a .artwork file onto your Desktop (Main file is [email protected]k for Retina iDevice and Shared.artwork for non-Retina iDevices).

    STEP 3: Editing Environment Variables/bash_script
    Windows 8, 7 and Vista: Open start menu and search "environment variables" and click the first result. If Variable “Path” is already there, select it and click “Edit” and add “;CPython27” and close the window. If not, click "New..." and for Variable Name put "Path", for Variable Value put "%PATH%;CPython27" then click “Ok” and “ok” again.

    Windows XP: Everything is the same except you need to right click My Computer in the start menu and click properties. After this click "Environment Variables" and continue using the instructions above.

    Mac: Open terminal and type
    Code:
    cd ~/
    edit .bash_script
    Now find $PATH, and add ":/usr/local/bin/python" at the end of the line. If $PATH doesn’t exist, go to bottom of the file and add
    Code:
    PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin/python
    export PATH
    Now Save and type
    Code:
    . .bash_profile
    STEP 4: Exporting and Editing .artwork files
    Windows: Run Command Prompt as Administrator and enter
    Code:
    chdir C:\Python27
    Mac: Open terminal and enter
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/bin/python
    NOW BEFORE DOING ANYTHING WITH THE .artwork FILE, CREATE A BACKUP ON iDevice AND COMPUTER

    Windows & Mac: enter the following command but read the detail below first.
    Code:
    python iOS-artwork.py export -a \path\to\artwork_file.artwork -d \path\to\export_directory\
    READ THE DETAILS BELOW
    "\path\to\artwork_file.artwork" means write the directory or place where you have the .artwork file saved and the "artwork_file.artwork" means write the name of the .artwork file (e.g. "Cartwork\[email protected]").

    "\path\to\export_directory\" means enter the path of the place where you want the extracted .png files to go (e.g. "Cartwork\pngs\" )

    Remember, the edited .png files need to have the same dimensions and size as the originals to work properly.

    STEP 5: Importing and Testing
    Windows: Open Command Prompt as Administrator and enter the command
    Code:
    chdir C:\Python27
    Mac: Open terminal and enter:
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/bin/python
    Windows & Mac: enter command but read details below first.
    Code:
    python iOS-artwork.py create -a \path\to\original_artwork_file.artwork -d \path\to\import_directory\ -c created_artwork_file.artwork
    READ THE DETAILS BELOW:

    "\path\to\original_artwork_file.artwork" means path to the original .artwork file (e.g. Cartwork\[email protected]).

    "\path\to\import_directory\" is the path to the place where you have all the .pngs that will be created into the new .artwork file (meaning your edited ones and the other .png files that you didn't edit)... (e.g. Cartwork\editedPNG\ ).

    "created_artwork_file.artwork" means make a name for this new .artwork file you are creating (hint make it something like Shared2@2x and then edit the name after the file is created.

    The new file will be in your Python Installation directory (CPython27 for Windows /usr/local/bin/python for Mac).

    STEP 6: Finishing Up
    Now you are done, just place the new .artwork file into /System/Library/Frameworks/Ulkit.framework/ (replacing the original). BTW keep the original .artwork file in that directory too (name it ___OLD.artwork), in case you can’t get into your phone. Keep both original and edited .artwork files on your PC too.

    Thanks for reading, hope this helped you. I am not responsible for any problems that arise due editing your .ARTWORK files and EDIT THESE FILES AT YOUR OWN RISK. Please leave suggestions, questions and if i made a mistake, point out errors. Thanks,

    Good Luck

    To me it looks like a lot is wrong with what you have done.

    Why are u using Python 3.3? Just use Python 2.7.3 - IT WORKS.

    Also there was no need to quote the entire 1st post - CAN YOU EDIT YOUR POST PLEASE?

    Secondly you didn't put the actual correct path to the [email protected]k file AND where you have you put it?

    SSH into your device and just drop it into the Python folder - means less syntax.

    FYi

    It should be typed EXACTLY like this

    iOS-artwork.py export -a C:Python33\[email protected] -d CPython33\extract@2x

    So basically you're telling Python to 1st use the Python script (iOS-artwork.py) to rip the pngs from the source location of your Apple [email protected]k file that being Python33 or "C:Python33\[email protected]" and then to place those ripped images into folder "extract@2x" via "CPython33\extract@2x"

    But please change your Python version to 2.7.3 I posted the MSI a few pages back.

    See how that goes.

    Bro, use your head, there is absolutely no reason to repost the entire first post!

    Then go back and read it and make sure that you follow them to a "T"!

    Artwork Tool Update:

    A while ago I advised that I had been talking to Dave Peck in regards to modifying his artwork tool to NOT grey scale "opaque" UI files.

    Dave has just advised that he is halfway thru the rewrite. I've posted a screenshot of his email. You can check the progress here at https://github.com/davepeck/iOS-artwork/commits/ignore

    ImageUploadedByModMyi1370657053.006729.jpg

    I for one am extremely excited at this possibility. Fingers crossed Dave gets it all sorted. Will let u know more when I know more!

    I myself am very grateful for his time and efforts for us and along with this thread CrAcKzZZ has here.

    Until then...Keep Calm & Theme on!

    You haven't read the directions completely. Read them again carefully when running that command and it will work.

    Look at your screen. You see how it says no path found. That's because all u did was copy the command "example". You have to put your correct path in yourself. For example, if you have your artwork at C user\artwork\????@2x.artwork then you have to put that directory path in where it says \path\......

    This is explained on page one. He even tells you this which is why I suggested you read it a bit more carefully.

    This is explained on page one. He even tells you this which is why I suggested you read it a bit more carefully.

    ok forgive you. then I'm stupid lol

    I fully returned the command line like this

    c: \ Python27> python iOS artwork.py create-a \ Python27 \ orig \ [email protected]k-d \ Python27 \ extract @ 2x \-c Shared@2x_mod1.artwork

    instead of this

    iOS artwork.py python-create-a \ Python27 \ orig \ [email protected]k-d \ Python27 \ extract @ 2x \-c Shared@2x_mod1.artwork
