    Presenting: Engraved Wood

    Theme It:

    *Supports iPhone 4. For pre-retina screen iDevices, look for Engraved Wood Standard coming soon*

    From the makers of Zelda SoundFX, Lunar Battery, Tinted Glass Icons, and Nerves, come a new theme fully optimized for the new Retina Screen of both iPhone and iPod Touches. Based on classic icons, this theme contains icons that are polished to look as though they were engraved expertly into a wooden plate. After continuous experimentation, I've found the best way to get this done fast, making this theme look amazing and be capable of having potentially hundreds of icons. View the screen shot for examples.

    I will happily make icons on demand by e-mail and add them to future updates. Additional requests will be met on an individual basis. I will happily communicate with all who purchase this app.

    Theme includes a blank icon that can be used for creating your own icons. They can be forwarded to the developers e-mail and, if good, can be added to the theme package.

    -Full Retina Screen Resolution!
    -Over 320 icons based on their original counterparts, along with customized icons for those who wish to change the appearance of some icons (for example, changing iRealSMS3 icon to the classic Messages icon; icons must be changed in the theme folder using SSH or iFiles)

    -Full Media kit customizations
    -Custom Smaller icons for Settings.app
    -Complete Universal UI Interface including statusbar, inapp taskbars, etc.

    There should be a winterboard icon for HD Engraved Wood v2.0.0. However, if it doesn't seem to be working and you have v2.0.0, please let me know. Additionally, feel free to send me a list of ANY icons you would like to see for this theme and I will be happy to work on them for you

    thanks for this theme i wait the sbsettings
    Np, glad you enjoy it :-)
    Just so people know where i am standing on the theme, im currently trying to figure out status bar theming. I wish i could get the status bar to theme in full quality, but its much more difficult than i anticipated. :-/ other themes such as CLASSified were clever and did it by using images with no curves, only corners. Im trying to figure out the best way to do it.
    Next update will contain
    -Backgrounder Badge customizations
    -Other badge customizations
    -Multitask bar media customizations

    Keep sending me icons you all want to see themed

    I think there is also a problem with MMI messaging as I haven't received any requests for beta access except by email. I have only 10 BETA spots for the HD version left! If you want Beta access, have questions or concerns about the theme, or icon/feature requests, please email me here. DO NOT PM me on ModMyI.

    I am beginning Standard version (pre-retina screen) BETA's now. If you are interested, please contact me at the email above!

    I think there are hold ups with saurik. I sent in the SBSettings theme about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard back yet. Hopefully it will be released soon. I apologize for the wait.

    3.0 will be released soon (probably some time this weekend) and will contain a huge chunk of the UI completed. The only things I have left to do are the individual app UI's (phone, calculator, weather, etc.) The app will be released soon

    Thanks for the support. Don't forget to vote for next week's Theme Of The Week.

    Thanks guys

    also, for those of you who use ibluenova, I need to know the source by which you get it, as I do not see it on the ModMyI or BigBoss source. Please Email me at [email protected] with that information

    The basic theme I submitted was already only 99c: usually a dollar or two less than most other themes. Instead of submitting the app for 2 or 3 dollars and making the sbsettings free, I thought I'd make the original significantly cheaper and make the sbsettings 75c (still only totalling in 1.75 for the whole theme: cheaper than ALoT of others). I appologise if this is an inconvienenve for anyone and if there's anything I can do to make either theme more suiting, please let me know.

    I do appologise for the missing parts in sbsettings. I will make the updates for sbsettings asap.

    Thanks for your support.

    I'm sorry but that's a load of bs. I have sold my themes for 99c and I make themes that are much much more complete than this. Charging any thing for the extra sbsettings is totally ridiculous. TCCENTEX has one of the most complete themes here and heade the sbsettings free to download separately! What you are doing is not fair to your customers and if you would like to get repeat customers I may recommend not being greedy like that :/ .

    I am sorry to everyone who is so upset about this situation. I really did not think that all of my decisions on pricing would be treated with so much argument. I initially intended to charge 1.75 for the theme, but I didn't know if modmyi could package the sbsettings and winterboard theme into a single package. I could have made the winterboard one 1.75 and the sbsetting one free, but I didn't decide to. I'm sorry if this seems so wrong. At the time I didn't see the harm in the decision. I can assure you that I will make the sbsettigs one free from now on in all future themes (standard version included). I am in communications with modmyi about pricing now to see if I can change them.

    As for the complaints on completeness of the theme: I am still HEAVILY working on the theme. I have proven that with the updates I have been providing. Every day I make new parts and usually weekly I update it. There ARE plans on making EVERY part of the phone themed, and I will try to theme EVERY request I get! Again, I could have waited till most of the theme was completely done, but again I didn't decide to. I will not make that mistake again (more reason the standard version isn't released yet)

    I want my themes to be known for accommodating EVERY request. If there is something specific you want, I will HaPPILy do it. Even if it's something I don't plan on implementing it into the official theme, I will make the changes and send them to you personally. If this isn't satisfactory enough, please contact me so I can try and help out in every way possible.

    I will fix the glitches and submit updates asap. Again, I'm sorry for all the inconvienience.

    Ps. If I am successful at changing the price, I will be raising the winterboard theme from 99c to 1.74 and lowering the sbsettings to free. I have not made any decisions about refunds of any kind yet

    First off, I have submitted an update for SBSettings to add the missing png's I apologize for that mistake. If there's anything else that's missing, or there's any toggles that you want custom made for the theme, please let me know.

    So I have talked to the guys at ModMyI. I am able to change the price of the application. However, they said the refund process was difficult as it is hard to get refunds issued without Cydia taking the 30% they are entitled to for sales. So here is what I am proposing.

    Option 1: I can change the prices: the HD Engraved Wood Winterboard theme can be changed from 0.99 to 1.74 and the SBSettings theme can be changed from 0.75 to Free. This means that the grand total of both themes is still the same, however the original paid theme will represent the full cost with any additional changes (for instance SBSettings) being free addon's. It seems like that was the issue that was bothering most people.

    Here's the catch: If I do this, I will be incapable of giving refunds as I cannot account for the 30% that Cydia will take. Also, the people at MMI say that giving away promotional copies of the theme is very difficult. So this is all I can offer IF I WAS TO CHANGE THE PRICES:
    -if you bought both themes, I can offer you a copy of my next theme (yet to be decided because of all the issues I am having with this one) free (by request only).
    -if you bought the SBSettings theme, but not the Winterboard theme, I will offer a full 75c refund at my own expense (this can't be issued until payments begin six weeks from now. If I was to do this, I would only take requests from purchases before the date that I change the prices. Also, again, It would be by request only). This is done so you can either keep the 75c or use it to partially pay for the full Winterboard theme.
    -If you bought the Winterboard theme but not the SBSettings theme, you are in luck. You will keep the winterboard theme after the price change and get the sbsettings theme for free, saving you 75c.

    Option 2:
    The other option I have is what the representatives at MMI have recommended I do: just leave everything as it is for now and live and learn from this.
    Whether I leave the prices or change them, I PROMISE none of my future theme would be neither released before it is mostly complete or charge for addon's such as SBSettings. I give my word on that

    I will leave it to you guys. Please contact me at the following email address ( [email protected] ) and let me know what you would like me to do. I will go by popular vote. Again, thanks for understanding, and I truly hope this mishap will not hinder you from looking into my themes in the future. I promise this won't happen again.

    Yes that makes more sense. SBSettings should ALWAYS be free. It takes me all of 10 minutes to make them and so I would never ask money for them, don't know why anyone else would then...

    I understand. It was a poor choice I wish I never made. Hopefully this option will make people happier. I really hope this doesn't dampen my theme, I have been working very hard on it and really like its high quality and professional feel. To me, its worth the full 1.74 price, but I can totally understand why the total price should be presented in the WinterBoard and not split across the addons. I just want everyone to understand that issuing everyone refunds is not only difficult to do and will cost me alot personally, but kinda meaningless since I will be changing the price equally for both themes. As long as it's ok that refunds arn't issued, then I'll gladly change the prices for everyone.
