    Default Custom Winterboard Themes on iOS4
    This is concerning iOS4 only.
    When I upgraded to iOS4 and jailbroke, only about half of my customizations from my WinterBoard theme still work. I have a habit of picking and choosing from full themes to make my own.
    I would like to get a thread going to help other iOS4 themes saying what is and what is not working.
    I'm using WinterBoard version 0.9.3211-1 and Summerboard support is on. All of my themes are of course under /private/var/stash/Themes/(themename).theme/

    Here's what I have working:

    /Bundles/com.apple.ATT_US (to change carrier logo)
    Default_CARRIER_ATT.png
    FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png
    NOTE: these do not seem to work in apps that use data (facebook, weather, cydia, iheartradio, etc.) It reverts back to AT&T logo

    /Bundles/com.apple.MediaPlayer (changes ipod controls)
    nexttrack.png
    pause.png
    play.png
    prevtrack.png

    /Bundles/com.apple.springboard (changes popup ipod controls(double-press home button))
    nexttrack.png
    pause.png
    play.png
    prevtrack.png

    /Folders/ChatKit.framework (SMS changes)
    Balloon_1.png (sent text bubble color)
    Balloon_2.png (received text bubble color)
    SendButton.png
    SendButtonPressed.png

    All of my /Folders/appname.app customizations are working
    My custom icons are working
    My custom sms and voicemail sounds are working


    What is not working
    /Bundles/com.apple.springboard
    basically nothing in the status bar is changing (service bars, battery charged, email alerts)

    Also, the icons in my dock have grey backgrounds instead of transparent. When i move the icons up to the regular icon space, they are transparent. Any ideas? (image attached)


    Feel free to contribute what is and is not working for your WinterBoard themes. I'll update this thread as I try new themes.

    Default A couple of additions
    Ok after a few boring days at work i figured out a couple more status bar changes
    First I installed Notifier version 3.1-2
    To change notification icons, under \Bundles\com.apple.springboard:

    For calendar event notifications
    Default_CAL.png
    FSO_CAL.png

    For IM notifications
    Default_IM.png
    FSO_IM.png

    Missed Call notifications
    Default_NCALL.png
    FSO_NCALL.png

    New E-mails
    Default_NMAIL1.png
    FSO_NMAIL1.png

    New SMS
    Default_NSMS.png
    FSP_NSMS.png

    Voicemail
    Default_NVMAIL.png
    FSO_NVMAIL.png

    For lockscreen charging wallpapers
    BatteryBG_(1-17).png

    I would still like to be able to change wi-fi and 3g service bars and the alarm clock icon

    Default wifi signal bars
    ok got it
    after 30min research i got it

    ok 1st thing now on the ios4 the wifi signal bars are not located in the bundles (pretty much com.apple.springboard on ios4 doesnt exist anymore)
    you just need to create a folder in your themes main folder: UIImages
    in that folder you need to create 2 sets of wifi bars (one for the lock screen and one for the home screen [they are black wifi bars]
    the next set is when you opened applications its called silver wifi bars

    ill attach these pictures in the directories (these are the default ones) check link
    name it the same
    note:black wifibar= home & lock screen bars
    silver wifibar= when apps opened wifi bars

    if you also want to change battery on status bar ask here on forum and i will write how to do that to

    hit thanks if i helped =)


    here is the file:this the example folder with the directory and name (wifibar).zip

    Hey all I have been reading your posts and noticed these things last night as I too love to modify themes and pick others apart to make my own, it's fun, and rewarding! So i will be doing some research about the filesystem change and get back to you all. Good work so far!

    You have to make the apps shadow transparent too (WalllpaperIconDockShadowT)

    After some research i found out that there are 2 versions of the balloons, one basic(like the 1's u replaced) and another with "@2x" at the end of it. so basically u need to make another image of those bubbles with 2 times the resolution named [email protected]/[email protected] (yes u still need both versions)

    I have tried it and I am very close but strange it looks like bubble with a thin line.... when you said I need bubbles with 2 times resolution named... how do I get it 2 times the resolution. I did added @2x.png on both bubbles but still almost working but not quiet right.

    Thanks again...help

    I solved the problem for the signal bars. It has to be:
    Silver_0_Bars.png (0-5)
    Black_0_Bars.png (0-5)

    Placed inside a UIImages folder.

    You're on the right track, when i seed you need bubbles with 2x res. that means to resize it to 2 times larger, so basicaly double it's width/height

    this is all completely new to me, so i don't know if this information is going to help you all or not. bare with me if these are newb questions...

    i just jailbroke my iphone 4 last night. i am on 4.0.1. i downloaded a bunch of battery themes for when the charger is plugged into my iphone, and none of them work. i have tried 17 different ones with no success. full theme packages work....for example the resident evil theme, but not the individual battery themes for when the phone is plugged in. almost forgot to mention they are all listed in winterboard, and summerboard is enabled.

    can anyone help me with this? thank you...

    i also am having trouble with the bubble colors. i really dont like the whole green and white sms bubbles. i had the tkidki theme and tokidoki adios sms. the background changed but the bubbles remain green and white. any suggestions on how to change that? also, does anyone else notice that the themes on the iphone 4g is not as crisp as the default? thanks in advance.
