    You weren't using the latest copy of WinterBoard. I had a version up for a couple hours that had an unsigned UIImages binary (you can sign it by doing apt-get install ldid; ldid -S /Applications/WinterBoard.app/UIImages), but I am rather sure I fixed that before I responded to your post.

    The way I currently can tell these artwork files work is you just initialize the entire lot of them and they are all loaded. If you can't find the images you want in that set then I will look into it further: I definitely want you to be able to customize anything on the phone ;P.
    I was using the latest copy that Cydia was offering at the time, but the update does now work. However, the images from the MobilePhone.app aren't included in the dump. There are some similar ones, and many I've never seen used before. Here are a couple of example images that I'm trying to replace:

    Saurik,

    You guys have come a long way in an incredible short amount of time! I'm using winterboard since day 1 (which is actually only a week ago), installed every update (you had one almost each day), but just want to say that what you created here is plain beautiful. I like your setup configuration and the whole idea behind it. Thumbs Up!

    On your website you mention icon label features, is there any way to turn the labels off?

    Keep up the good work and thanks!

    you can edit the icon labels. All you have to is edit the info.plist.

    I'm not seeing Winterboard in Cydia. Is there a source you have to load?
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    @saurik
    I tried using a theme with no dock and no wallpaper, and I still wasnt able to change it with customize. I also tried using a theme with a fully transparent .png for the wallpaper and dock, That just left me with a fully black theme, and still not able to change with customize. any ideas?

    I too have been wondering how to replace .artwork files that are specific to applications, rather than the global "other.artwork." I'd be curious to know if/when saurik implements this functionality.

    I suspect the solution will include a UIImages folder inside Bundles/com.apple.mobilephone/ for example. But I do not know what filenames to put inside of that UIImages folder, as the list currently on saurik.com is only for "other.artwork." And the UIImages binary does not seem to take arguments for other files.

    Great work on this so far saurik. As far as I can see, this is the last feature missing.

    Sorry, I normally don't have a problem following instructions, but I'm just not getting it.
    i cant seem to extract them either

    I am running into similar territory and I want to be sure that I understand. I am preparing a theme using Saurik's bundle methodology and I am running into trouble with frameworks other than UIKit.framework, and even that one is proving a little confusing due to the artwork stuff.

    I don't understand the usage of the folder name UIImages since it does not adhere to a bundle name. It should be called com.apple.UIKit or placed in a com.apple.UIKit bundle folder no? I guess something else is going on with the artwork overrides. I have noticed that using a com.apple.UIKit bundle folder does work, but I'll get into that in a sec.

    If I want to modify other frameworks (such as TelephonyUI.framework) I am lost. I am not trying to override their artwork files. I see that the bundle name is com.apple.TelephonyUI, but using that bundle folder has not appeared to do anything as far as overriding non artwork file images.

    I am trying to force the lockscreen to do the following:

    -not show the top bar. I did this via extracting 227.png from other.artwork. Modifying it and renaming to UILCDBackground.png and placing in UIImages) This is the prescribed method for overriding images in other.artwork.

    -not show the bottom bar. This is (I think) in TelephonyUI.framework as one or more of the pngs just lying around in the folder. As I said, I can't override these using a bundle folder. I could be doing something wrong however....

    -change the Lock background. This will be hard since the image is contained in /private/var/mobile/library (if you've set a background) and there is no indication that you can override it. Additionally, there is no way to remove an already set lock background without sshing in and deleting it manually (removing all photos via itunes does not remove it). However, I did find that if I deleted it, the system would revert back to using the DefaultWallpaper-iPhone/iPod png files that are in UIKit.framework. And I found that I -could- override these via a com.apple.UIKit bundle folder in my theme. Cool, but its probably easier to just set the wallpaper the regular way.

    This makes the whole UIImages thing make more sense since it is clearly artwork file specific, and files lying around in the framework folders are handled just by the bundle folder (for UIKit at least). I still can't seem to override telephonyUI though...

    Sorry for rambling. Saurik you've done an awesome job and I'm having a blast messing around with all this stuff in (relative) safety. Thanks!

    Default home screen wallpaper by preferences setting?
    here's my dillema. i remember summerboard being able to set the homescreen's background so that whatever background was set in preferences (lockscreen) would also be shown through on the homescreen. this makes themeing for me much easier because i like having one opaque icon set and lots of beautiful backgrounds. at present i have about 25 different themes taking up 12mb where the only thing different is the wallpaper...

    is it possible to have a setting to use the preferences wallpaper system wide? then i could have one theme set and not worry about it again... (would make ssh-ing a new icon onto the iphone a breeze as well. one time instead of 25 seperate folders...)

    What images can't you overwrite in com.apple.TelephonyUI? I've only tried the three sliders, but all three override fine in my theme.

    If you're trying to override something within an *.artwork file that's not the global "other.artwork" then I don't think that's currently possible. At least no documentation exists on it yet that I can find.

    Looks like you are correct. I went back and discovered that I completely missed a bunch of the original pngs in the telephony framework folder, so I wasn't even modifying the correct images, yech. Thanks for telling me it should have worked.

    Looks like my previous post was unnecessarily long winded. Adding a com.apple.TelephonyUI folder to a theme's Bundles allows those images to be overridden quite well.

    Does anyone know how to do this in winterboard?
    I had it set in summerboard to not use a theme wallpaper, that way when I changed the wallpaper in the unlock screen it was also the background for springboard. I have no problem with SSHing if need be, but I really would like to have this feature.
    Also does anyone know how to remove the text below the icons? I always had it with no text.

    I believe the initial post in this thread answers your question about removing icon text.

    Madlark is correct for the icon text. In essence, you want to make the labels transparent. This is described in detail in the first post of the thread he links.

    As far as the background, I think you can use the new Wallpaper.html functionality to do this. You'll need to be using the latest version of WinterBoard (the one where Saurik's theme is animated). Then simply make a Wallpaper.html in the root of your theme (/Library/Themes/<your theme>/). Place the following into it:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <html><head>
        <base href="/private/var/mobile/Library/"/>
        <!--meta name="viewport" content="width=320, minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0"/-->
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
    
        <style>
            body {
                background-color: black;
                margin: 0;
                padding: 0 0 0 0;
                height: 480px;
                width: 320px;
            }
        </style>
    </head><body style="color: black">
        <img src="LockBackground.jpg" id="sysbg"/>
    </body></html>
    You can modify the style section to resize your image or crop it as necessary if it is not a standard 320x480 image. For example, 20 pixel padding at the top for the status bar and some space at the bottom for the dock (straight from Saurik's default):

    Code:
            body {
                background-color: black;
                margin: 0;
                padding: 20px 0 0 0;
                height: 442px;
                width: 320px;
            }
    Good luck!
