    Question Exporting and compiling currently used themes
    Is there a way to export and compile all the themes I have currently enabled into one theme folder on my computer? This is a bit confusing to say, but what I mean is, say I have a bunch of pieces enabled that make up my current overall theme. Is it possible to somehow automatically make a folder that contains all those pieces and place it on my computer (or even just in winterboard itself) as a single cohesive theme that I can click then and it would be the same look on my iPhone?

    Pictures may explain a little better if my words confuse you.

    *I make no claims to ownership, either in part or fully, to any of these themes.*

    Certainly, you can SSH all the theme files to your computer, Make and name a new theme folder (MyTheme.theme or what ever) and place all elements you want to keep in the proper folders. Bundles/Folders/UIImages/ etc.

    Wow, I am actually ashamed of myself for not having thought of that haha! Although this is an easy fix, somebody might want to still look into making an app that does this with one click too. Would be a handy little tool

    In any case, thanks for the help!

    Sometimes we all seem to over think it and just make it harder. Glad to help and Welcome to MMi

    Oh, one more thing before I forget. Is there a template of some sort that shows exactly where each element goes inside the theme folder? I have been trying to sort it all out, but it can be difficult when I don't know what everything is called to do a proper search

    I would suggest tearing apart a complete theme and see where images are placed and named.
    Try this one, it is one of the most complete themes out there and it is free.
    Link for download is at the bottom of first post.

    Looking at the contents, it seems much different than that of the themes I have looked through so far. Now I'm back to completely confused

    Look at the WinterBoard themes in the folder, ZUI Prime is the main theme, others are add ons.

    Yeah, guess I should have replied that I figured it out haha. And I got it to work too! I only got hung up for a few when I had multiple files called "info.plist" and had no idea what they did. But that was quickly sorted thanks to this thread: Whats the real file for Winterboard Themes Info.plist file?

    So again, thank you so very much for all of your help
