The link i gave you should have taken you directly to iOS-artwork, but im guessing you were exploring and went and downloaded the full tidbits Tell me how it goes
    Hey yuh I got it sorted just after I did that post, I did post an edit. I didn't have the iosPthyom script in my Python folder I think. All good thanks heaps for your post! I have a MAC as well and seriously I must have spent half a day trying to run Python with no luck. A lot easier on a windows machine. Also can Python be used to extract the PNGs in the iPhone if that IPhoneImageApp can't? I find it struggles to decrypt bigger images or default backgrounds which I'm wanting to modify. Must have spent half day rebuilding the portrait calculator with photoshop and 40 layers...:-o

    The png is crushed, unfortunately I only know how to uncrush using PNG Uncrusher for Windows.

    I have no experience with this but for a Mac you could try this:
    Download iPhonePNGApp for Mac - Show/fix png image resources inside an iPhone application. MacUpdate.com

    from:
    http://www.macthemes.net/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=819897

    Or alternatively go into iFile, find the image, press the Download Icon to save it to your Photo's. SSH to var/mobile/media/DCIM and find the photo and drag it over.

    Thanks heaps for your intel, Im interested in the windows PNG Uncrush as I have a windows and Mac laptops so toggle between the two as need be. Do you find PNG Uncrush decrypts all iPhone PNGs? My Mac version struggles with the larger PNGs as mentioned earlier. Can you tell me a bit more about the Windows version of PNG Uncrush? Does it require a CMD environment or is it more like drop the files or to direct the app to it to decrypt? Where would one source this PNG Uncrush from for Windows. With iFile does it decrypt the images? Haven't used iFile for that. Thanks for the help.

    Even though you've done it via iFile, I will explain how to use PNG Normallizer sorry about getting the name mixed up with Uncrusher.

    OK, when downloaded, place ipin.py in the location with all the crushed images and double click the file or run as administrator if double clicking doesn't help.

    Sometimes folders with multiple images, large images or images that are too crushed it doesn't work with, but I have only experienced that on one single theme.

    What is the easiest way to edit png's and be able to keep them the same size and dimensions? I have a copy of photoshop that im learning to use but whenever I edit an image it makes the file size larger. Is that what you mean by keeping the size the same or you just mean the height and width have to match?

    I reccomend you use Paint. It's a very useful photo editing application for Windows and Mac. I use it myself and find it very useful you can visit Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

    i find that photoshop is best for quick edits that have to do with transparency and changing colors, like for the battery. Ive never had problems with editing an pngs with photoshop or with file size. It will only be a problem is the file size on disk exceeds the file size of the originial, but that only happens if you do a major edit.

    Shame this doesn't work for AssistantMic.artwork.

    EDIT: Anyone with a Mac that can do this?:
    http://blog.ip1neapple.com/

    And send the zip with extracted images.

    EDIT: Just figured how to do this on Windows, I will writea tutorial now.

    No it isn't my blog.

    And for some reason it went all grainy and pixelated, thanks anyway.

    If anyone has a jailbroken iPhone 4S please test this out.

    AssistantMic.artwork is in 5.1 right? Also, DavePeck said " I will probably add support for this down the road" and this was 2 months ago, so im guessing hes working on it

    How to extract AssistantMic.artwork from the following location using Windows.

    1. SSH into your device and take AssistantMic.artwork from /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

    2. Make a folder called Python25 (or whatever) in the C Directory.

    3. Drag the files from the attatched zip file into Python25.

    4. Open up the iphone-artwork folder and drag AssistantMic.artwork in there.

    5. Open up an Elevated Command Prompt and type in
    Code:
    chdir C:/Python25/iphone-artwork
    and hit enter.

    6. Now make a Folder in CPython25 called "img".

    7. Now type
    Code:
    iphone-artwork.py -export AssistantMic.artwork C:\Python25\img
    and press Enter.

    8. Now go to CPython25 and open up the image folder and edit any files you wish.

    9. Type
    Code:
    iphone-artwork.py -import C:\Python25\iphone-artwork\AssistantMic.artwork C:\Python25\img artworkname.artwork
    and press enter.

    10. artworkname.artwork should now be at
    Code:
    C:\python25\iphone-artwork\artworkname.artwork
    .

    11. Rename artworkname.artwork to AssistantMic.artwork.

    11. SSH back to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ and replace the modified AssistantMic.artwork with the old one.

    Of course you will need Python and PIL as included in Post #1 of this thread.

    I will edit to make this easier to understand, but I am going to make a test one, and I would love for someone to test to see if it works with their iP4S.

    I'm assuming you have a jailbroken iPhone 4S, could you test out some modified PNG's and see if it changes anything?
