    Default [Release] Japanize KANJI theme
    It's my first theme with Kanji characters.
    These types are based on Japanese traditional blush painting at Edo period.
    All words are related with that means or Japanese pronunciation except for Dock icons.
    Dock icons makes famous phrase that have own meaning.
    For example, the red 4 characters "ka-chou-fu-getsu" as "flower-bird-wind-moon" expresses magnificent beauty of nature.

    Wallpapers are Japanese vintage wood engraving print called "Ukiyoe". (automatically transition)

    Download (MMI)
    or https://files.getdropbox.com/u/75174...nize_KANJI.zip



    187 icons (please note if incorrect)
    6 wallpapers
    Dock background

    History

    Hmm... How can I put these attached thumbnails into "Attached Thumbnails" area like other posts ?

    Bad *** theme! Very original!

    Can you translate the meanings of the 4 dock icons? The Default Set and Sets 2-9 do not have a translation

    I love the meaning to Set A "jailbreak is successfully completed"

    Thanks again for the nice work!

    Hi! Thanks! I forgot it.
    OK, I try. But unfortunately, my English skill is not enough to explain the fine nuance of the words. I need C-3PO.

    I will add following texts to the theme later.

    ==================================================
    Meanings of the 4 dock icons
    ==================================================

    *Set2
    ------------------------------
    ga-ryou-ten-sei

    ==================================================

    ka = fire
    zan = mountain

    It means "color is emptiness" if translate literally.

    I checked it again.
    It would seem that first wallpaper stays in several tens of seconds. (approx 40 to 50 seconds)
    (sometimes or always ?)
    Once transition was started, it will works normally.
    What causes that ?
