Thread: How To: Create your own themes on WinterBoard?

  1. #1
    Default How To: Create your own themes on WinterBoard?
    I HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO DO IT!!!!!!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    You will need to remove the Saurik Theme. (If you like the Saurik theme, then just pick a random theme for WinterBoard, download it and install it.)

    (btw, you can just create a folder for the theme instead of destroying a different theme, when I wrote this up, I was not thinking that)

    1) SSH into your iPod Touch using WinSCP.
    2) Locate the directory "/Private/Var/Stash/Themes.UWB8Y6"
    3) Enter in the Saurik theme (*or whatever you downloaded) AND DELETE EVERYTHING IN THAT FOLDER!
    *If you downloaded a theme, make sure you back up the files for a safe removal.
    5) Rename the theme folder WITHOUT the .theme extention added.
    (You may want to bookmark this folder for easy access)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING DO YOU WANT TO DO???
    a) Dock
    b) Wallpaper
    c) Icons


    6a) Download a dock you want from a file set in customize. (Or full themes)
    6b) Have your photo edited to 320x480 .png format
    6c) Create a Sub-Folder in the Theme Folder Called "Icons"

    7a) SSH to "/private/var/mobile/Library/Customize2..."
    7a1) .../(Theme Name)/Dock
    7a2) .../FileSets/(FileSet Name)
    7b) SSH to the Theme Folder of Yours
    7c) From the Customize Folder or other Winterboard apps, copy the icon files to a random folder on your computer.
    8a) Copy only the dock that has a 1 on the end of it, and put it in your computer.
    8b) Copy the file to your iPod and rename it as Wallpaper.png. (MAKE SURE THE PNG IS NOT CAPITALIZED)
    8c) Go back to your Icon folder in the iPod and paste all of the files in that folder!

    9a) Copy the file to your iPod and rename it Wallpaper.png.

    10) Go into WinterBoard and apply the theme, then respring.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If your theme turns out to look somewhat like this.
    (Everything you applied)

    THEN YOU HAVE CREATED YOUR OWN THEME FOR WINTERBOARD!!!!!!

    Nice man, i was able to finally get rid of that stupid Stocks app that apple puts on there (since i don't ever use it.) Still working on a custom wallpaper/status bar/dock setup.

    it's better to download afc2add on your iPod or iPhone and use iFunBox (or program like it) than to SSH it.

    by the way you can just when you ssh the themes to your iPod touch instead of using the Saurik theme folder just make a new folder and name it what you want and add ".theme" to the end and put your theme images and files in there and that works just as well if not better (never mind i can't read lol)
