    Yeah you would definitely need to use Xcode to generate several car files with known contents to reverse engineer them, I had forgot that someone had already looked into the format and if it's an adapted OSX binary at least there's already information available about the file structure - It doesn't make sense to have a binary file without some indexing system so I'd imagine finding anything there will help reverse engineer them, but I appreciate it's a lot more complicated than a glorified zip archive, and likely any of the format's I've come across in video game binaries

    Count me in guys! Having a shiny new iPhone 5s waiting to get themed :P

    I looked into some iOS 7 beta files I received me a while ago. As of now all Stock Icons, except for the Calendar Icon, can be themed.

    Wow positive news ! Thanks.

    Calendar must be CSS generated. Easy with these Ivey gradients.

    Well, that depends on how far Winterboard will support this. Afaik we could only edit the type and this time we don't have an image based Icon. Those *.car files might hold the secret behind this.
    It's like theming iOS 1.x (iPhone OS 1.x) back then, slowly figuring out how to theme step by step.

    Yeah I think hooking functions that load the images would be better, and users would feel more comfortable with a theming platform over manually replacing graphics on the device. Will be very helpful to be able to unpack all the resources in the car files though

    Calendar icon should be themeable. It's a 120x120px white canvas in the MobileCal app...

    It was never really about themeing manually bro. As long as WB or whatever platform can hook into the .car files that's the question really. But I still feel very strongly at having the option to extract the .car files whether its via Xcode (so u will need a registered Dev a/c & also know your way around Xcode as not all the Xcode extractor projects are getting ALL). Or like Dave Peck's iOS extractor via CMD/Terminal to have ALL the .car image files to work with at your disposal.

    Manual themeing is a last dire option but still worthy IMO but isn't for everybody...

    Are u sure? I don't have the Beta1 files anymore I don't think...

    This is as far as I know, one of the first devices running a jail broken iOS 7.0.4 with some theming applied! Thanks to xpprem for supplying the icons and to Jato for helping me get it this far!

    Shouldn't be a major to recompile the .car files. The Xcode projects are out there to extract. I've been asking Matt C to possibly help since he is in Xcode up to his eyeballs everyday!

    I'm also gonna reach out to my brother to see if he can help. He is a unix guru, so I'm hoping maybe there's a chance.

    iPhone4 only (A4), via Limera1n exploit & a touch of manual theming. Tethered JB.

    For future reference to clear the cache directly responsible for the icons you need to clear the contents of "com.apple.IconsCache" NOT by deleting the Folder.

    var/mobile/Library/Caches

    Then RESPRING
