    So that was it then ?
    I need to try this out !

    The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.

    The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.

    You are the bomb!! I tried everything I could think of, well, almost everything. This was the problem. Thank you for the info!

    Oh jeez. What a stupid solution to a problem - this just shouldn't be. I read long ago that new versions of WinterBoard didn't need the .theme suffix.

    Anyway, thank you for your immaculate perception, as it were

    Good call! Got me there! But as with the WB .theme extension now required its like 7X being forced on us.

    6X is the best IMO...7X blows...it's a diabolical overloaded unnecessary laden firmware.

    I hope Ives design teams get replaced by the 6X design team!

    Wonder whatever happened to those guys...Poor beggars...

    I love that I can theme everything in 6X & not need a 100 odd tweaks to do it!

    I totally respect your opinion on the matter, but I'm bored so I'll give mine as well

    I think iOS 7 is heading in the right direction. Having tiny bits of code dictate what the OS looks like is just far more efficient, especially if you want to create a uniform design across all of your devices. The same little bit of code can allow an iPad to display the same graphic as an iPod, or iPhone, without the need for 8 different types of png's.

    Code-based graphics allows for less batter use, as well! I think that's something we can all enjoy. Loading and unloading information into RAM is what causes a ton of battery drain. Every PNG needs to be loaded into memory - the bigger your PNG (the more gradients and colors it has) the more information needs to be loaded.

    What it's all coming down to, the future, is vector artwork. It's extremely easy to store, load, unload, and display at any resolution. With code-based menu graphics and vector artwork files, the future is about efficiency.

    Trust me - if you want to be prepared for the future, start learning how to create high-quality artwork using vector graphics. The revolution is coming

    Maybe, but the way I see it it's moving more into Dev territory than what end users can cope with.

    I personally don't see any vector graphics in iOS7 yet. Sure theres slicing/stretching but that's the same as 6X. There is still a slew of pngs in the iOS. 1079 for the UI files alone yes that's legacy support still in there but I see very few code based images. Folder icon , dock yes but they still use png masks.

    I personally think if it carries on like this it'll be a very boring looking iOS UI IMO!

    Ives? Don't u mean Forstall!

    Jony Ives still works for Apple & is SVP...

    #RookieMistake

    Be awesome if Ives was fired tho! He should stick to hardware & hardware ONLY!

    It was declared publicly that Ives went with a new team of designers for iOS7. To apparently breathe new life in the ageing/dull iOS.

    Yup, it works perfectly now.

    I had tried everything and was just about to give up when I noticed that it worked on two other themes that I had in WB and then I noticed that they all had the .theme extensions. So I tried it and it worked.

    No problem. I'm just glad I could help. I wanted this to work as bad as the other people having problems with it. Being able to help others as well as myself is the perfect scenerio.

    I agree. I think I still have the palm print on my forehead from when I finally tried it and it worked.

    Yeah, I remember in iOS 6 Saurik saying that we didn't need the .theme extension. I had no clue that he had added it back to WB for iOS 7. At least we know now.

    It's only boring if you can't work with what you've got. I don't think iOS 7 is the end-all-be-all of mobile operating systems, but it's going in the right direction. Now, as a themer I love changing anything Apple into something completely different, but there will always be limitations. As a jailbreak themer you should know those limitations and simply work between them - we will never have access to deep code within iOS.

    It's one thing to complain about iOS, it's another thing to work with it. I'm sure you agree!

    They even ditched the PDF clock hands for raster images. Did anyone open iOS6 clock hands in Illustrator? They retain the vector layers in raw editable form. You could zoom in to 6400% and still not spot a pixel.

    I occasionally come across a PDF in iOS7, and get my hopes up....but no go. Someone said that a 3rd party tweak uses PDFs (flip switch?), and I've yet to check the documents to see if they've been flattened. At a guess I'd say not, or png's would be the better option.

    I put a concept forward to a friend, about a widget that used SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), but there is one problem I can see. The code is actual display pixels, but we usually have our graphics displayed @2x. So I'm guessing if we tell an SVG to display at a 320px wide to fill the screen, then it will scale the vector graphic to that size, and display it as non-retina. Thank you.

    Well...looks like Dave Peck's extractor tool works fine! I had a closer look at my JSON scripts and turns out there were a few opening [ & closing ] brackets not grammatically CORRECT!

    So I will be posting all 6X/7X & 7.1 SD/HD scripts to the .artwork thread later on for everyone to use since no hex editing is required...
