    Ahh sorry man yuh you're right! Sorry I didn't take a close look at the pic!

    Q_bAn_b is right, it can be themed via Color Keyboard if you are using that.

    Otherwise I believe it's code like the rest of the iOS's native keyboard.

    If you're running Color Keyboard it should be "P-0-4.png" in your Themes folder within Color Keyboard.

    Thanks man! There are a lot of ppl inputting into here which I appreciate as well in helping everybody as much as we can.

    Unfortunately as far as I'm aware that is an issue that is unresolved. A combination of iOS 6 and CK.

    That question which you're probably going to hate is best asked in this dedicated thread here.

    Color Keyboard Guide

    PhatMartino is the CK master and if anyone will know it will be him but from what I've read CK needs an update.

    Have a look thru that thread near the end and you will see that question has been asked and is still unresolved.

    I hope this can help out EVERYBODY in MMi and feel free to correct me and others if need be.

    I am basing most of this Thread from an iphone 5 perspective but also referencing an iphone 4S on 5.1.1

    I am by no means the authority on theming I thought people might find this guide useful.

    ***IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE BROWSING THE INTERNAL FILES OF YOUR IDEVICE STOP RIGHT NOW!!!***

    !!!PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!

    ***The "Table of Contents/Jump to sections" will only work on PC or from Safari (mobile) & not the MMi Mobile app due to the custom BBCoding. Simply open this thread via Safari on your Mobile if you wish to take advantage of the "Table of Contents/Jump to sections"***

    Table Of Contents (Jump to sections!!)

    Native Icons
    AppStore Icons
    Cydia/Jailbreak Tweak Icons
    MobileIcons/Transparent Icons
    Settings Menu
    Custom Carrier Symbols
    Custom Wallpapers
    Deleting the white "CALL" word from your Dialer***Work In Progress***

    For ME, I use iFunbox for both Windows and MAC with no issues at all. I like that fact that you can plug it to your computer like you do with iTunes and you can drag files out of your iDevice and it will copy to your folder on your computer and vice versa. It makes navigating your iDevice so much easier in my opinion.

    There are other methods so it really comes down to what you feel comfortable with, I used to use OpenSSH installed on my iDevice and SBSettings but you still require a program to run on your computer and it pushes files via WiFi and other sepcifics.

    iFunbox!!

    There is a few different ways to theme and that is up to each person how they wish to theme. Majority of the information I will post is relative to WinterBoard theming.

    So once you have jailbroken your iDevice and you wish to theme via WinterBoard you will need to install WinterBoard via Cydia (Think of Cydia as a Jailbreak APP Store if you must)

    If you do not wish to theme via WinterBoard then "Manual theming" is for you but also a lot more dangerous as you are dealing with the LIVE directories of your iDevice.

    ***BEWARE***

    ONE THING I cannot stress enough is to at least BACKUP folders/files before making changes incase something goes wrong!!!

    So if you have WinterBoard installed you are now set to begin theming or simply to download iOS6 themes from Cydia.

    Im not going to go into the exact specifics of WinterBoard because I didnt build it but my understanding of it is that it lets beginning themers thru to advanced theme creators build themes which can theme majority of the iOS. Keep in mind WinterBoard does need a few updates due to elements NOT theming within iOS6. Im sure Saurik will address these issues in time once more is known about the changes within iOS6 so keep an eye out in Cydia for an update via the "CHANGES" tab (bottom middle of your iDevice)

    Where does WinterBoard themes install or are used from?

    The location is /var/stash/Themes.xXXXXx (the x's are unique to your own iDevice)

    Have a look there now, there is a few default usually out of date themes already installed.

    Thats where themes downloaded from Cydia will install to and also if you build you own theme it needs to be built in this same directory. ***Will Continue more later***

    Firstly Icons (Native icons) ALL NATIVE apps are 118x120 pixels! Sure they might be icons might be 114x114px but the canvas that they sit on is transparent at 118x120px or it simply will not theme.

    AppStore Icons

    These are the apps you buy and/or download from Apple's App Store BUT not Cydia tweaks! (working on that post atm)
    The homescreen icon image sizes for these are strictly 114x114px IF you dont theme them at this size it wont theme.
    All App Store Apps are located at the following directory: /var/mobile/Applications
    YES all the random numbers and lettering is for each App - iFunbox picks up on the random numbering and renames them as they appear on your Home screen.
    Lets looks at the Twitter app for example.

    Navigate to: /var/mobile/Applications/Twitter

    Once there it also has another directory structure breakdown: (Generally the case for all App Store apps)

    /Documents
    /Library
    /tmp
    /Twitter.app

    The "Documents/Library/tmp" folders arent really useful from a theming perspective and are more used to keep the App in check and retain information etc.
    JUST LEAVE THOSE FOLDERS ALONE!!

    However the Twitter.app provides all the information we need to utilise to theme it essentially.

    First move I usually make is to open the Info.plist file, if you have iFile installed via Cydia (Paid tweak - AND the most useful tweak IMO) then use iFile to open
    the "Info.plist" file via the "Property List Viewer" (PLV) option. This method I find is cleaner than opening it as a text file, text file can be useful but its a lot of information with no real breakdowns in the sections of the "plist" where as the PLV option will display it in a sectioned like table on your iDevice.

    If you are really stuck and are unable to open the "Info.plist" due to not having iFile, another method is to save it to your Desktop and if you're on Mac you should just be able to select the plist and hit Spacebar and that will preview it as a txt document. You will just have to read the doc to find the information you are after. OR if you are on Windows change the "plist" extension to "doc" Windows will ask you if you are ok with the extension change, just say yes and then open the renamed Info.plist -> Info.doc in Microsoft Word. This is the equivalent to previewing it Mac or as opening it as "Text Viewer" on iFile.

    So we have the Info.plist open or are previewing or reading it, first thing I look for is:

    CFBundleIdentifier

    Why exactly? This provides the Bundle ID as referred to with all the Native Apps I noted above earlier and for the "Bundle" folder name under YourTheme/Bundles

    So the CFBundleIdentifier for Twitter reads: com.atebits.Tweetie2

    OR

    Bundle ID: com.atebits.Tweetie2

    So to start theming any of the Twitter App you need to now make a new folder inside of "Bundles" called "com.atebits.Tweetie2"
    This will look like YourTheme/Bundles/com.atebits.Tweetie2

    Any theming changes you wish to make will now be placed into this newly created folder and WinterBoard will apply the changes once resprung.

    So with the folder now made within Bundles to theme the Twitter App I refer to the original Twitter "Info.plist" and now I look for

    CFBundleIconFile

    This should provide us with an indication of what the Homescreen Icon image is called. It can list all the icon names that are all various sizes so can be somewhat confusing all the same!

    Take for the example the Twitter App it lists the CFBundleIconFile as "Icon-production.png" Now there is the first misleading information the fact that if you are on a Retina device e.g iphone 4 and up this isnt true as these devices use the "@2x" suffix before the "png" extension. So to me I know that filename is not right, but its in the right direction. I then exit the Info.plist and look within the Twitter App for "Icon-production.png" and look what is below the "Icon-production.png" file..."[email protected]"

    See attached image



    So now we are almost certain we have the correct icon file for the Twitter App to theme, the last bit of confirmation I do is to select "[email protected]" and via iFile (handy tweak remember) open it via the "image viewer" option. Why you might ask? It provides the pixel dimensions of "[email protected]" and it is showing 114x114 pixels.

    So to sum up, we now have the correct Bundle ID and icon name to theme or mod the Twitter App and also any other elements you wish to mod that we downloaded from the AppStore. This method might seem a bit long winded but it does work.

    Return to Table Of Contents

    Cydia/Jailbreak Tweak Icons
    The Cydia/Jailbreak Tweak icons are for CYDIA and your Jailbreak tweaks (some tweaks do not show icons on the homescreen). These can almost be a blend/hybrid between theming the Native(default) Icons and/or the App Store Icons, it really comes down to how the tweak Developer decides to write the tweak and what directories it needs to install to.

    Tweaks that install into /var/stash/Applications are fairly easy to theme, simply follow the App Store Icon Method and navigate to your tweak i.e Barrel (for the purpose of this thread) open up the folder and you will find the "info.plist" and also the icon name - in this case "barrelicon.png"

    Opening up the "info.plist" in iFile under the PLV mode we can scroll to the "CFBundleIdentifier" and find the Bundle ID (com.aaronash.Barrelsettings) that we need to create a folder called that under "Bundles" within your own theme.

    So for the Barrel tweak:
    Name: barrelicon.png
    114x114 px
    Bundle id: com.aaronash.Barrelsettings

    So for theming sake I have put up a screenshot of Barrel unthemed as per below

    UNTHEMED:



    and then THEMED as per the above method



    NB: I have sometimes found that to THEME tweak icons you need to change the 114x114px PNG image to 118x120px and place your Tweak icon on this image size as technically if the tweak is in the "Applications" directory the NORMAL icon sizing is 118x120px. So just keep that in mind if the tweak icon doesn't theme at 114x114px try placing it on a 118x120px canvas.

    Another method I have figured out which is REALLY useful to locate ALL files for Jailbreak tweaks is to navigate to the following directory

    /var/lib/dpkg/info

    Now JUST TO BE CLEAR "YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE DELETING ANY FILES IN THIS DIRECTORY!!!"

    This Directory should be a READ ONLY type mode!!

    This directory contains a lot of Jailbreak stuff, but the main thing I would like to point out is there are these "list" files, these "list" files once opened with iFile display ALL the directories AND files the Jailbreak tweak installs...EVERYTHING!!

    For Barrel: com.aaronash.barrel.list

    I have attached a pic to show what you see when the Barrel "list" file is opened in iFile



    So its VERY useful when you are trying to locate files to theme and the like

    MobileIcons/Transparent Icons

    Ok, I have had a few people ask about Mobile Icons, firstly I am going to explain the three (3) icons.

    These are:
    AppIconMask@2x~iphone.png
    Size: 118x120px
    AppIconOverlay@2x~iphone.png
    Size: 118x120px
    AppIconShadow@2x~iphone.png
    Size: 118x120px

    They are located here: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileIcons.framework
    Bundle ID: com.apple.mobileicons.framework

    These icons are responsible for the appearance of your App Store Icons on your home screen

    Lets take a look at the three icons in closer detail



    AppIconMask@2x~iphone.png - Controls the icon image displayed, anything BLACK is not shown (gives the appearance of the nicely rounded corners) While anything WHITE is SHOWN
    AppIconOverlay@2x~iphone.png - Provides a glossy overlay look like the Default icons have (it works sometimes and then it doesnt)
    AppIconShadow@2x~iphone.png - Provides a subtle shadow below the icon image

    To theme these for your own theme they need to go into YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.mobileicons.framework

    If you do decide to theme these, they need to be saved a little bit different to conventional pngs, in Photoshop when you go to save go to "Save for Web & Devices".
    Select "PNG-24" all the way till it saves.

    Also if you are wanting to have TRANSPARENT ICONS in your theme you will need to rename ALL three (3) of the files otherwise you will get the annoying the mask/overlay/shadow images applied to your transparent icons.

    This is evident in the screenshot below



    and then with three (3) files renamed as in take the "@" out of the filename and the images are still retained on your phone but the iOS does not call on them anymore. MUCH BETTER THAN DELETING!!

    It appears as below



    *Also when these files are renamed, it then exposes the full image of the App Store icons, usually AppIconMask gives these icons the rounded icon look that we are all familiar with. So really if you are going to build a transparent theme, all the App Store icons will need to be themed accordingly to get rid of the ugly square look.

    Also you will need to rename

    "WallpaperIconDockShadow@2x~iphone.png" along with "WallpaperIconShadow@2x~iphone.png" for the Safari "Docked" icon and if you while you are there you might
    as well rename the "SwitcherIconShadow@2~iphone.png" for when you Double tap the home button.

    These are located in

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    A BIG thank you to Jahooba for letting me use his "NEUROTECH HD" icons as a demostration, if you like the look of his icons/theme head over to his thread to preview more!

    Settings Menu

    This section goes into detail to theme the icons displayed in your "Settings Menu"

    Before



    and AFTER (themed)



    The "Settings Menu" icons are located in the Preferences App or

    /var/stash/Applications/Preferences.app

    Firstly the majority of the Settings Icons are contained within the [email protected]k file and are 58x58 pixels

    I tested this by renaming the [email protected]k and 25 icons were no longer themed within the Settings Menu

    See pic attached.



    Note only the DND icon remained, which is stored as a separate PNG in the Preferences App



    Unfortunately at this stage, extracting the [email protected]k file is not possible. If you didnt know already, "artwork" files are encrypted or compressed type files Apple use to package up their PNG's. The iOS can utilise these artwork files fine but everyday PC's require a few extra "bolts on" so to speak to extract these files.

    If you wish to know more about extracting these "artwork" files head HERE!! to read a tutorial on it!

    BUT WinterBoard is still theming these files as per iOS 5 so its not really a major. The names havent changed either which is a surprise from Apple!

    See the pic below, its the Airplane Mode icon, which is now stored in the iconCache.artwork file, I have opened up the "Settings.plist" within the Preferences App via iFile which confirms the name as "Settings-Air" which is the same name in iOS 5 less the "@2x.png" part.



    In order to theme these in WinterBoard the themed images need to go in a "com.apple.Preferences" less the quotation marks. Or

    YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.Preferences

    I determined all the names via the "Settings.plist" within the Preferences App

    Now the names
    Airplane Mode = [email protected]
    Wi-Fi = [email protected]
    Bluetooth = [email protected]
    Carrier = [email protected]
    Do Not Disturb = @2x.png
    Notifications = [email protected]
    General = [email protected]
    Sounds = [email protected]
    Brightness & Wallpaper = [email protected]
    Privacy = [email protected]
    iCloud = [email protected]
    Mails. Contacts, Calendar = [email protected]
    Notes = [email protected]
    Reminders = [email protected]
    Phone = [email protected]
    Messages = [email protected]
    FaceTime = [email protected]
    Maps = [email protected]
    Safari = [email protected]
    iTunes & App Stores = [email protected]
    Music = [email protected]
    Videos = [email protected]
    Photos & Camera = [email protected]
    Twitter = [email protected]
    Facebook = [email protected]
    Nike + iPod = [email protected]
    Weibo = [email protected]
    Newsstand = [email protected]
    Speakers = [email protected]

    Custom Carrier Symbols

    Sick of the Carrier Symbol in your Status Bar? This can be themed via WinterBoard, first question where do would one find your Carrier's Bundle in your iOS.

    Well there's a few ways.

    If you are familair with your Carrier's details its as simple as navigating to

    /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/iPhone

    THEN trawling through the 1823 Folders to find your one, which can be easily done if you know the exact carrier you are after.

    Another method AND EASIER method is to go to

    /var/mobile/Library

    In here scroll down to "Carrier Bundle.bundle" highlighted in BLUE. With the BLUE highlight, that denotes a "Symbolic Link" or SymLink. When you click on Carrier Bundle.bundle you will be automatically navigated to YOUR CARRIER's BUNDLE.

    See pic below



    Next stop we are in our Carrier's Bundle and for an example this is what mine looks like.



    Once inside the Carrier's Bundle - Mine is Telecom_nz.bundle as per the SymLink we selected, we open up the Info.plist via iFile or whatever is easiest in the "PLV" mode.

    Identify the Bundle ID: com.apple.Telecom_nz

    There are 2 image files in my Carrier Bundle being

    FSO_CARRIER_Telecom NZ_1only_.png Size 72x20px
    TS_CARRIER_Telecom NZ_1only_.png Size 74x20px

    So to theme these via WinterBoard I create a new folder within my Bundles directory named: com.apple.Telecom_nz

    There is a WinterBoard trick however to theme these two (2) files to create your custom carrier symbol.

    Firstly: The new custom carrier symbol needs to be twice as big as your carrier's original image.

    So for me these image sizes are increased from 72x20 TO 144x40px & 74x20 to 148x40px at a minimum.

    I found to get them sitting right I had to make a new background 1pixel higher so 40pixels to 41pixels and set the custom carrier symbol to the bottom
    leaving a transparent 1 pixel row along the top. This aligned it to the bottom of the status bar.

    LASTLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!

    You will need to add "@2x" before the .png extension of the files you have modded.

    So mine were:

    FSO_CARRIER_Telecom NZ_1only_.png Size 72x20px
    TS_CARRIER_Telecom NZ_1only_.png Size 74x20px

    AND NOW THEY ARE

    FSO_CARRIER_Telecom [email protected] Size 144x41px
    TS_CARRIER_Telecom [email protected] Size 148x41px

    So to recap my Directory structure looks like this

    MY Theme/Bundles/com.apple.Telecom_nz

    With those images placed inside.

    FYI - DO NOT EDIT YOUR CARRIER PLIST - Apple signs that in conjunction with your Carrier and if modded its detected as CORRUPT & can cause issues!

    Custom Wallpapers

    ***IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE BROWSING THE LIVE DIRECTORIES OF YOUR IOS DEVICE STOP NOW!!!***

    To have your own Custom Wallpapers show up in the Settings Menu which is the desired effect, you need to manually move the Wallpapers you have created to the following directory

    /var/stash/Wallpaper.xXxxxx(x's are unique to your device)/iPhone

    Here is a screenshot of the Wallpaper options we have and where we would like OUR wallpapers to be displayed.

    Also here is a screenshot of the Wallpaper menu, this is where we need to add our OWN Wallpapers



    Firstly, you need to check the sizes of the Thumbnail image (image displayed in the Settings Menu Wallpaper selection panel) and also the Wallpaper image.

    To help out im going to list a few below

    iPhone 4/4S
    Thumbnail = 150x150 pixels
    Wallpaper = 640x960 pixels

    iPhone 5
    Thumbnail = 150x150 pixels
    Wallpaper = 640x1136 pixels

    If you want your images to display FIRST you are going to need to rename your Default/System wallpapers as they start at "100" at this refers to number 1 option in the Settings Menu/Wallpaper.

    So for me I want mine to display FIRST, I name my images as below which are for my iphone 5

    Wallpaper = 100-568h@2x~iphone.png
    Thumbnail = 100.thumbnail-568h@2x~iphone.png

    NB: For iphone 4/4S users drop the "-568h" part of the filename so...

    Wallpaper = 100@2x~iphone.png
    Thumbnail = 100.thumbnail@2x~iphone.png

    AND all that is left now is to add the files to the Wallpaper directory

    /var/stash/Wallpaper/iPhone

    Here is a pic of MY Wallpaper at the start of the Settings/Wallpaper selection panel, and then SELECTED.



    Just repeat the process as necessary.

    Deleting the white "CALL" word from your Dialer ***Work In Progress***

    Sick of the white word "CALL" messing your Custom dialer up? If you didnt know the CALL word is a string of text overlayed on top of the Dialer. The only way to get rid of it is to mod the "General.strings" file within your chosen language within the Mobile Phone App. Mine is English but GB English



    So for me to manually mod this (e.g not using WinterBoard) I navigate to

    /var/stash/Applications/MobilePhone.app/en_GB.lproj

    FIRST MAKE A COPY OF THE "GENERAL.STRINGS" FILE

    Open up the General strings file in iFile (if possible) and in Property List Viewer (PLV) mode and the locate "Call" select this and then DELETE the word "CALL" and SAVE then RESPRING

    The white "CALL" word is now gone and the WHITE phone symbol is left.



    To get rid of that image manually simply rename

    callGlyph_large-568h@2x~iphone.png
    callGlyph_small-568h@2x~iphone.png

    Just removing the "@" stops the iOS calling on those images, so as per below the once
    white CALL word and white PHONE symbol are now gone.



    ***TO BE CONTINUED***

    I have a themed version of it from iOS 5, you want me to send it to you?

    I'd like to do a color that we can easily change for modding. Some custom text for the buttons. A custom home screen.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

    Yuh that sounds gd to me, you have my email right? My thoughts are that they will be UI images & there would be about 20-30 max.

    I'm not sure about the text? Wouldn't Bytafont sort that? Or does that not run at root level either?

    The home screen will be just that UITableViewTexture png at a guess.

    Plan of attack for me is to recompile the artwork file at my end to test the images that are theming via the Shared a/w and then I can send you the separate pngs to test via WB?

    It won't be too fancy from a testing point of view just trying to get it to work properly if you're ok with that?
