    Guys,

    I thought id post a side by side kinda comparison pics of the greyscaled efffect versus the grayscaled FIX in iFile, as we know, WinterBoard does not theme iFile/Cydia so it can only efficiently be done by recompiling the [email protected]k file.

    Up until yesterday all my .artwork recompiling resulted in the greyscaling applied below to those specific greyscale files with some of them named "opaque", which is what the iOS expects and how Dave Peck's artwork extractor tool works. Dave mentions COMPLIANCE! :-o

    iOS .ARTWORK file Extractor (with Tutorial)-ifilegrey.png

    As you can see it ruins coloured themes in a sense, but isnt an issue if you are not worried about colour as such. (But we dont live in a black in white world)

    The pic below shows the how the hybrid artwork renders those "opaque or greyscale" files by running a "RGBA" process after Dave's initial iOS-artwork.py script

    iOS .ARTWORK file Extractor (with Tutorial)-ifile.png

    I hope that explains a bit further about the fix that has been applied.

    BIG SHOUT out to @DougThwaites <-- Dev guy, U guys can get him on there!

    Any questions....SHOOT!

    Oh almost 24hrs down and NO ISSUES with the hybrid artwork files in my ipad3 and iphone5 so far!

    AND a SNEAK PEEK of my theme!! :-)

    Big THANKS to Alfroggy & King_O_Hill for testing the grayscale artwork file fix. By testing i mean that they were prepared to endure potential issues! CANNOT thank u guys enough & hoping others will enjoy this added functionality! Long overdue are my thoughts! U don't ask, u don't know! We did ask AND now we do know!

    Update: UIActivity Menu/UIButtonBar

    Not too sure whether you ones will find this useful, I mentioned on Twitter that with the Greyscale fix we can now theme the UIActivityShine png in colour. Previously this was limited to black/white (greyscale) for the Print/Copy/Wallpaper images. I have tested this & it looks perfect to be honest as per below!

    ImageUploadedByModMyi1373155055.771437.jpg

    A BIG THANK YOU to @BoubakAy for letting me test with his TurquesaSE theme! U can grab this on Cydia if you haven't already!!!!

    Unfortunately the UIButtonBar files still stay as white. I only tested about 4 or so but they still showed as white as it also does when themed via WB. So perhaps those images are used as a mask only & the white added by the iOS as it needs to.

    Very cool Jato! Who finished the grayscale fix, i thought Dave gave up on that? And good too see your theme is coming along nicely Btw i think that black and white version of your theme would be pretty cool too IMO.

    I haven't been on for quite a long time and see that a lot of things have happened. Especially this new .car filing system :/ I wish they stuck with .artwork files, nice and easy to work with, no idea how .car files are different. Sucks that Dave is no longer working on the iOS Artwork extractor, very useful tool.

    Hi CrAcKzZZ!!!

    Yuh Dave pulled all support for his iOS.artwork extractor following the .car files for the UI found within iOS7. Bit of a shame really but anywho!

    I actually asked a good mate of mine @DougThwaites to take a look for me as he knows his way around Python/Ruby/SentOS

    To be honest I thought the greyscale fix could only be administered by Dave & was kinda shocked when Doug said he thought he managed to add the RGBA component to those greyscale files.

    King, Alfroggy & myself have been testing on 4 iDevices with NO issues. The iOS just displays that colour file as it would with any other colour file. GREAT NEWS!!

    Dave has emailed me since saying he still wishes to look at iOS7 onwards with a extractor/recompiler tool but the current iOS artwork tool will no longer support it. A different approach is needed!

    Back to Doug, he is looking at the iconCache file. I forwarded on my original email sent to Dave in May, to Doug which has everything required to hex it essentially. He is going to look at this in time. The iconCache artwork contains almost all of the Setting menu's icons relative to the iOS about 30 in total.

    Doug let me know yesterday that he plans to put the greyscale fix .py script on his GitHub this week. It runs standalone compared to Dave's iOS-artwork.py script.

    Will keep u posted!

    I haven't tried the tool out. Only your file you built with it. I read Doug's GitHub post but that's the furthest I've been.

    Let me know your thoughts!!
    The non-grayscaled custom '[email protected]' you sent me for testing works flawlessly on my side, and I need to add that this modded UIKit.Framework gets themed without any accommodating for it in your WinterBoard theme. The regular theming methods apply, i.e. any one (or an hybrid of up to the three, noting that the 'Bundles' method has priority over the other two if/when a file has a swap in more than one of the underneath folders) '/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.UIKit.framework, or /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/YourTheme/Folders/UIKit.framework, or /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/YourTheme/UIImages

    Thanks Alex for the update! Yip we would have issues by now & as discussed with Doug it would have been instant if it was going to fail etc.The iOS displays colour pngs within the .artwork files and all we have done is provided RGBA info where it would normally be greyscale. Good result guys good result!
    Yes the idea behind it was that you can theme via the [email protected]k and AVOID WinterBoard OR you can run the modded .artwork & WB over top. Just means when you go into iFile or Cydia the modded .artwork is used which was one of the main reasons I embrace .artwork modding.
