    Well, tried Crash Reporter/syslog but it didn't show what I needed.

    Weird thing is that I can theme LTE but not the 4G. If it is a font, then I guess there's no more image replacement for those... :-(

    Lemme know if you can look those files up, k!

    I've been using winterboards record uiimages function. It will record uiimages in temp folder for you. It seems to record the images as they are accessed on your device for example it won't record wifi bars until you turn on wifi and they are shown on status bar.
    What I did was load new theme with a blank bundles folder so it wasn't actually theming anything. Then I've been opening apps, putting in landscape, opening up any extra menus then closing app and looking for any changes in that folder

    freakin why do they keep changing and moving image names

    Im looking for Signal Bars and Wifi only at this point

    Thanks
    Take a look at this post iOS7x Theme GUIDE although I can't get the Locksreen Wifi bars to work. Are there any silver pngs anymore? The black ones turn white on a dark background

    It says in winterboard under the advanced section where you turn on UIImages recording. I believe it's var/tmp/UIImages

    Well, using this method, proves that the 4G symbol is not an icon anymore. My LTE icon shows up in the folder but not the 4G.

    I wonder what this means for theming it in the future.....

    My thoughts? Less & less themeing opportunities really! The golden days were really iOS6 & below. At the end of the day Apple didnt build the iPhone to be themed & iOS7 is only the start with this new direction IMO.

    yeah.. I was actually getting a little bit excited about my 5S and what I'm able to see themed on 7.0 .4 right now. Then last night I went back to my iPhone 5 which is still jailbroken and fully stocked/themed for 6.1.4 - and I almost shed a tear. That phone looks so awesome. Way more awesome than my 5S on 7.0.4. But I think it will become the new normal. And our eyes will get used to seeing different things in different places, some themed, some elements unthemed and will still feel pretty good.

    We still have a ways to go yet and a lot of updates to Winterboard to go… But I believe the future's bright for theming.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Yip I'm the same NewD. My daily driver is my 5 on iOS6 & my 5S isn't even jailbroken yet. Can't be bothered ATM. My 4S on 7.0.4 is but still looks pretty stock.

    I agree I am looking forward to the WB updates too!

    put them in the UIImages folder of your theme, as com.apple.UIKit isn't working

    head here:

    /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.UIStatusBar/images/

    delete only the files inside the images folder and respring

    Edit: I can't find the 3G image I'm still looking

    Edit 2: the 3G is controlled by a font, probably the _H_HelveticaNeueInterface.ttc(this is just a guess)

    Does 0xced's extractor work on the asset.car files? I have not had any luck personally, but I have never played with Xcode before either.

    The Core UI files but not all like calculator & mobile phone - their asset.car files are missed. Perhaps because that isn't included in the iOS7SDK? I have asked @0xced but he never said he would look into it or if he would offer support for those...frustrating

    But his extractor Xcode project pulls 3900pngs over 100 odd folders approximately.

    I was able to get all those. I guess I was just hoping some progress had been made on the rest. I will continue to wait.

    No not sure, sorry. I'd pushed for a look into a standalone .car extractor that could tear any .car file to bits but it might be an extremely hard ask. Otherwise we have to rely on Xcode. Unless WB can have extra functionality to record all pngs used. Not sure if that's possible tho but like how it records UIImages ATM.

    Dave came back with this response! Rather quick but not positive all the same.

    "Unfortunately I don't know anything about the .car file format beyond what I added to my README on GitHub. Under the hood, .car files are actually Mac OS X BOM files, but they have a few unusual sections that you'll need to make sense of. The BOM file format is mostly undocumented (although there is an attempt at reverse engineering that I point to, also on GitHub) and the sections of interest for the images seem to be completely undocumented. I have no idea how the image bytes are packed, whether there is compression, etc. Overwriting might be possible; it might not.

    I left some suggestions on how someone who really wants to reverse engineer this stuff might go about doing it, but it looks like a pretty big job."

    Sheesh...
    Hi, sorry fo English, im from Moscow Russia) I see the attach image, i make a mac os 10.9.1 on virtual mashine, download xcode 5.0.2 but i cant uderstand how to extract *.car files.
