I dont like Neurox Leopard anymore. I’ve been using it since 1.1.1 IIRC. The themes that I like have truncated icons, so I made my own theme. I’m not sure, but I think the Springboard truncates the icons after 60 pixels. Most themes have icons with >60px in width or height. They have to be resized to 60x60px
Thanks to those who submitted their themes in Cydia, I now have my very first “frankensteined” Summer/Winterboard theme! I’m not going to distribute this theme, so there’s no need to give credit to the individual makers of the icons.
The iTunes icon is mine (sort of). First, I tried to look for iTunes icons in Google Images. I found a few and I opened one in Gimp. It turns out it’s not transparent yet. I’m not a graphics artist so I know shit about transparency. After some googling, I found out that I need to add an “alpha” layer, aside from the usual RGB layer. Using the magic lasso thing, I cleared the background, scaled it to 60×60, saved it as .png and loaded it to my phone. After respringing, transparency win! It’s transparent but it’s fugly. It’s so fugly I dont wanna post it here. The edges are so crooked, there’s extra shadow at the bottom, etc. All in all, FAIL!
Attemp #2: I “extracted” it from iTunes.app in Leopard using ‘Get Info’ -> click the icon on the top left -> Edit -> Copy then Preview -> File -> New From Clipboard. I removed the shadow at the bottom using Gimp, scaled it to 60×60, scp’ed it to the phone, resprung, and there you go. iTunes icon WIN!
I haven’t decided on a dock and background image yet. It already looks kinda nice without one.
