Or are they even images?

I am talking about lock, rotate lock, battery, etc.

But also the "Translucent_Base", I had found it the other day but can't seem to remember where.

Bundles/ for the buttons and UIImages for the status bars.

If you're looking at the artworks and not a theme, the buttons are in SpringBoard.framework and the status bars are in Shared.framework.

Is Shared.framework under /system/Library/PrivateFrameworks? Because I can't seem to find it.

You need the frameworks extracted. I'll upload pre-extracted images to mediafire in a minute for you for both 5.0 and 4.3, iPhone and iPad.

Thank you! Is it easy as just making custom images and making a theme and putting them in Bundles or UIImages or what?

(21 Oct '11, 15:48) BoJangles00 BoJangles00's gravatar image

Not exactly... The default images help out a lot. Here's the link :)

Thank you lots! Is there any documentation or easy to tutorial on how to start? Because frankly, I have no clue what to do with these.

Lol I've been in that position before too :)

Get openssh from Cydia, and an SSH client for your computer, you need some photoshop skill. Basically, you just edit the images in those files.

(21 Oct '11, 16:08) JonSeals ♦ JonSeals's gravatar image

Yup SSH'd and everything. I have lots of experience with photoshop so no sweat. So there is not way to just make a theme, or must you overwrite the default files? Where are they located on the system? Like the shared folder. (I am on a 3GS btw, and I noticed most of these images are for retina D=)

I can get you the non-retina images too :)

For learning how to use Winterboard, you can start with saurik's post on the subject (or google around for other tutorials). Also check out ModMyi's theming forums and MacThemes.
