    So, from photoshop to the device is a hard way. iīm fighting with many issues. Many things i need (like iconoclasm or fiveIrows or fivecoloum springboard) are not working on ios4. Thank god iblank is working.

    1. So i had to change the 4-icon middle window to a 8 icon window and change the layout of the windows.
    2. I canīt use transparent icons that are place above backgroud graphics, because you would not see this apps at the ios4 multitasking dock.
    3. Many new, or different named graphics on ios4
    4. ths statusbar canīt be made transparent anymore.
    and so on....

    So, I created this new icon-style. They can be made by beginners too with a easy template. For the dock i will use my "minimum icons". For this new icons i had to remove the icon labels. The Problem are the ios4-folders now, because they are unnamed...

    The good news: this is a first real working screenshot (except the widget) so stay tuned, and tell me if you still like it.

    It's a shame you couldn't get it working to the style of the first few pics (yet )

    Nice save with the newer style, but i have to say i prefer page one to page two keep it up matey

    i don't like the newer styles, but i understand why you had to switch. question: can you theme the multitasking wallpaper?

    Thanks, and yes, a little bit too colorful, thats true
    See it as a learning process for me, because ios4 is different in themeing

    Unfortunatly i canīt make everything like on os3, but i changed the layout again:



    The multiasking-dock background and the folders background is simply one picture that is uses for both. YOu can see here a winterboard-bug, the wallpaper around the open folder gets completly black:


    Here you can see why ios4 themes needs "classical" icons. They must work inside the folders, the dock and on the screen:

    What if you use the name as icon and turn off undocked names? so when it shows up in the multitasking dock you'd still be able to know which app it is?

    So this is a darker version with a better orange, a 4 icons layout and washed-out icon colors, better i think. This layout limits the user, you can only use this first window like it is, as the text is part of the background (But as usual you get a full theme template if you have some skills)

    Thanks for the critiques and nice words. Please remember, ios4 for is NOT iphone 4

    The iphone 4 display has a lot more pixels, so none of the themes you know will work for iphone 4 as all graphics are too small.

    This means: all themes/graphics must be done new from the scratch including all icons, just upscaling graphics makes them blurry

    By the way: anyone knows a good/better name for this Theme ?
