    Hehe, it wasn't so bad. I already themed all the loading gears and the rest I mostly already had collected. I'm kind of disappointed there isn't more

    I could arrange that
    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!

    Has anyone been able to get the asset.car xcode to work? I'm attempting to integrate some of the code but can't seem to get the asset to load.

    Here's a snippit of code but doesn't seem to work.

    id assetManager = [[NSClassFromString(@"_UIAssetManager") alloc] initWithName:archiveName inBundle:bundle idiom:[[UIDevice currentDevice] userInterfaceIdiom]];
    NSArray *allRenditionNames = [assetManager valueForKeyPath:@"catalog.themeStore.store.allRend itionNames"];

    for (NSString *renditionName in allRenditionNames) {
    UIImage *image = [assetManager imageNamed:renditionName];
    NSString *pseudoBundlePath = [[relativePath stringByDeletingLastPathComponent] stringByAppendingFormat:@" %@", archiveName];
    NSString *filePath = [[pseudoBundlePath stringByAppendingPathComponent:renditionName] stringByAppendingPathExtension:@"png"];

    if ([image scale] == [[UIScreen mainScreen] scale])
    [self addImage:image filePath:filePath];
    }
    This seems to be the code to load an asset.car file and iterate through the items in it, but for the life of me I can't figure out why the ID ASSETMANAGER part doesn't work. Anyoen here xcode guru for this type of thing?

    Extracting or recompiling? @0xceds Xcode extractor project pulls the core .car files & outputs as pngs.

    Recompiling seems to be more difficult but it's done by way of creating asset catalogs.

    The start of this thread helps to explain options via Dave Peck but not so much as a tutorial.

    Hi all,

    I'm very pleased to announce that I'm now sitting on a working tweak that themes .car images. It's in a very rough alpha currently, and so needs a lot of work, but it works which is the main thing! All .car files are supported as far as my testing has gone, so hopefully this will bring us a new era of iOS 7, and beyond, theming.

    Once it is finished, this tweak will inegrate seamlessly into WinterBoard, so all that needs to be is have the .car images in your theme in the right bundle, and it'll pick your theme up if it's enabled.

    Some proof (thanks Jato_BZ for the icons to test with):

    iOS7 .car File Extractor / Compactor! Start of a New Theming Platform?-img_0153.png

    Oh, and the name of this tweak is currently TestDrive.

    Wow, great news! Do you have any plans to contact the developers of WinterBoard and ask them to incorporate your methods into WinterBoard? It would just be an extra step I wouldn't need to make all my customers aware of, you know?

    Also, you should maybe start a new thread with this info and detail us on your progress

    I'm going to be trying to! At the moment, it's easiest for me to play about with my code in a separate tweak, but since all the code I'm using doesn't use any WinterBoard code, it'll be very easy to integrate. I'm going to be open-sourcing this tweak when it's done, so that should hopefully get things going quicker

    Yup, good idea! I'll do so when it works better than at the moment - I want to support Preferences.app icons to give Jato_BZ some free time back!

    Just started testing "TestDrive" and I'm hella impressed!

    Firstly "TestDrive" sits in your /var/mobile/Library as its own folder aptly named "TestDrive" essentially think of that folder as your WinterBoard "Bundles" folder. All you do is drop in the correct Bundle ID folders into the "TestDrive" folder & that's it.

    Oh yuh one other big PLUS? No need to respring to clear the cache for the apps. Simply close the App via "AppSwitcher" & reopen = changes applied.

    All this from a 21KB .deb...

    Epically awesome IMO!

    Not at this stage I think bro! Matt is hoping to have it out within a week so he seems to think!?

    Up to build 0.2.1 which now saves "in-app" .car pngs like WB does with its "Record UIImages". All of this managed within a few hours.

    He's hoping to add individual png support for the Settings icons/iconCache .artwork file.

    Essentially ATM it needs to be used in tandem with WB as its only themeing .car files & not images.

    Few pics here of "TestDrive" creating folders based off the "Runtime Bundle IDs"

    ImageUploadedByModMyi1396250901.629589.jpg

    And then recording the .car pngs

    e.g Calculator

    Going good at the moment apart from the odd crash.
