## Thread: iOS .ARTWORK file Extractor (with Tutorial)

1. Yea man that would be awesome, i need that Shared@2x~ipad and guys today ill be updating the stock .artwork files to 5.1.1 too since thats the new untether.

Newbee123, go and download the ios artwork extractor again becase DavePeck has updated it. Hopefully this solves the problem.

2. Cool man I'll source tonight. At work at the moment.

3. Hi CrAcKzZZ

Enjoy

4. Hey, it didn't work for me on my mac.
I plan to use this for a theme I am making for my iPad 2 with use of winterboard so I don't need to be able to edit the artwork files myself.
Thanks!

5. Any help?

6. Did you follow the guide I linked to, to make it work on Mac?

Aight, im uploading all the new 5.1.1 .artwork files. Should i remove the 5.0.1?

7. No, I don't think I saw how. How do you make it work on Mac again?

11. I'd suggest searching around on google and try to find PIL 1.1.7 for mac, the problem is that there is no official PIL 1.1.7 for mac but that is required to do this. I wish i could help more but im not on a Mac so theres not much i can do.

On the good side, Tutorial has been updated for 5.1.1 and i have added stock 5.1.1 .artwork fiels and kept 5.0.1 ones too, but just uploaded everything to Dropbox which is much faster than Rapidshare :P

13. Oh that is because you didnt extract the ios artwork extractor to the right place, when you are here: https://github.com/davepeck/iphone-t...er/iOS-artwork and you download the it, you have to extract the ios-artwork folder inside of it, not the entire thing. And you have to extract it into the Python27 folder. If you get that right, then the error will be gone Tell me how it goes.

14. READ: I need someone with a Mac on OS 10.7 to work with me and get this tutorial to fully support Macs. Some users have said that they haven't gotten this to work on their Mac which is a shame, so im trying to make this tutorial "Complete" by adding Mac support. If you have a Mac on 10.7 and would like to help me in my quest, then please do send me a Private Message saying so.

Thanks,

16. This is a great tutorial, thanks so much for putting this up, I can tell by all the steps involved that it wasn't easy. Like others have said though, if you follow it to the letter, you'll get it done right.

Thanks again and keep up the great work. Very much appreciated.

17. Thanks MistahRiz, and no problem, yup, most people have gotten it all figured out, just Mac users havent :/

Oh obviously that gonna screw up, look at what you entered. Your trying to import so you need to write the

Code:
python iOS-artwork.py create -a \path\to\original_artwork_file.artwork -d \path\to\import_directory\ -c created_artwork_file.artwork
you wrote

python iOS-artwork.py create -a \path\to\original_artwork_file.artwork -d \path\to\import_directory\ but forgot -> -c created_artwork_file.artwork

for -c created_artwork_file.artwork, just write -c [email protected]k

21. A HUGE TIP FOR OTHERS: it has to the exact same file name(s) of the .artwork files on the iphod/iphone... Because for simplicity i just renamed mine aaa.artwork (and it failed to recognize it) I typed the real name ([email protected]) and it recognized it and extracted everything. "so its not smart enough to open custom file names"

--------edit------↑↑↑
Wow I have 4.3.3 and thanks to this post I just learned that the ipod uses .artwork files. I have been wondering where all the paths and stuff are....

Worked flawlessly on windows7, ill have to give it a go on Linux-Mint 12...

A word of advice for others when using the -d argument double check b/c i typed "\" and now my c is full of .png's

22. Help.
wondering if you guys can help me i keep getting the help info on extracting rather than it extracting the images, i know this was covered earlier in the topic but i cant seem to see whats wrong with my commands..
