    Easier way to extract .SAR and .CAR files with ... | SCN

    Could this be of any Help for us ? maybe this needs to be done Via windows ?

    Edit:

    Found another great piece of info if this is the same type of CAR files we are talking about here

    also this png file makes all the Icons into a circle Shape. Great if your like me and Make your own theme from replacing files.

    Looks cool, Thaz.. Hey, bro.. you're my guru of 'debs' prior to a new jailbreak release so we don't sit in Cydia lines waiting for stuff.. LOL!!. Because of the weird Jailbreak roll out and Mobile Substrate not being updated.. Cydia is slow now. (except ultrasn0w repo keeps failing)... But when MobileSubstrate gets released - Cydia will likely get killed.. Is the best course of action to use OpenBackUp doing a .deb backup on your iOS6 jb'ed phone each day -- to make sure you have the most recent versions of all the tweaks you use ready to go, as debs, when MobileSubstrate releases? That's what I've been doing.. You doin' the same?

    @NewDestiny
    Honestly, I'm not as worried about it this time around. Because of the weird JB release, everyone will have most of the dependencies when MoSub is updated. The only 'issue' we should have is getting the updated MoSub but I doubt the servers will get clogged too bad.

    --------------------------

    FYI, just remove the ultrasn0w repo since it's basically useless, now.

    Got bored and made my own MMI icon!

    If I could find an ultrasn0w repo by itself, I would.. It's not in my sources window.. I thought it was part of some other general repo in that window.

    Then you need to use Cyfix to try and remove it. I can't say the name of its repo, though

    I was working on an app today using the latest Xcode, and I noticed that it creates a file "Assets.car", which likely contains the icon(s). It got me thinking that we could use Xcode to recompile car files in some way.

    Using cartool to extract the file didn't work however (no error, no files created).

    This might sound totally Dumb but... What would happen if lets say you took the car file you created and removed it from where it is... Then Took lets say one of the Car files from iOS 7 and Renamed it to what yours is...

    Would Xcode let you open and edit the files in that Car file like it would if it was your own car file?

    I am not an Xcode guy but I would think that this would not work because of permission on the iOS 7 .car file.

    I am also working on this to see if I can get the .car files opened and extracted. Is there any other places that people are sharing info on this?

    Agree, XCode is the only way to extract the CoreUI.car files.

    As noted in the first page of this thread there are a few XCode projects that extract these.

    We are also talking 7X themeing here

    I have XCode and a Mac. Is there anything I can help with uncompiling and recompiling?

    Not that I'm fluent in XCode language.. But if the steps needed can be told to me... I learn quick..

    Well I just ran @0xceds Xcode project from his Github or here

    https://github.com/0xced/iOS-Artwork-Extractor

    That's as far as I've got with it in running to grab the pngs.

    In terms of reversing it to effectively that's beyond me. I'm not XCode savvy at all. But I'm sure if we all work together we can sort something.

    What's the goal, Jato? To extract the car, change some images and recompile the car?

    Would my first step be to locate the .car and move it to my computer? Where is it? Path and file name? And should I be doing this test on my 4S or my 5S?
