    Good to know Lokheed. Thanks for the info. Yeah I can't imagine how hard a full UI would be. The way you described it. It sounds exhausting and tedious. Plus backwards compatibility and making sure nothing changes or gets resized lol geez. I feel for ya. I would just work on 1 full app at a time.

    Now that's what I'm talking about. Nice set here Sino. Really nice.
    Do me a favor? Keep this look in mind the next time you feel like you need to work with greens, okay?
    All I'm saying, is IF you feel like working with green AND this PSD was used, I would not be disappointed.

    On the recent compartmentalization of Jaku:

    You guys may have noticed that Jaku is becoming compartmentalized. This is to help development, but also to allow themers to better take advantage of Jaku's elements. There are 1,176 individual UI elements in the iOS UIKit alone. That doesn't include the various other places (like MediaPlayer or SpringBoard) iOS draws its UI. Moreover, these are all undocumented (their function pieced together by themers and hackers) and Apple changes them in nearly every version. Sometimes files are moved, new ones added, or resolutions changed. For those asking for a complete UI, this is a daunting task, and more so when you have to maintain it, assuring backward compatibility for those unable (or unwilling) to update. You guys think finding Bundle IDs and icon file names are hard?

    For those not yet in the know, WinterBoard prioritizes the items listed. If you drag Jaku UI Extras to the top, you will get the 2x2 folders. If you drag it under Jaku UI, you will get the traditional folder layout. For those still on 5.0.1, you should have Jaku-5.0.1 at the top. For those on iOS 4.2.1+, you should have it's respective package at the top. If you are running 5.1.1, you can deactivate those entirely. They are built for backward compatibility and the core Jaku theme will always be built for the most current untethered Jailbreak. So when Apple released 5.2, you will likely see a Jaku-5.1.1 bundle appear in WinterBoard (unless Apple doesn't change anything and that's not very likely).

    Here's a breakdown of the current organization:

    Jaku-{iOS version}: Elements for backward compatibility should users not be running the latest untethered version of iOS.

    Jaku UI: Most of the core UI elements will be found here (Lock Screen, Phone dialer, and general UI), save the status bar icons and some elements of SpringBoard that will always be remain in the core package.

    Jaku UI Extras: ISX statusbar icons, WeatherIcon (fully relocated here), UI Settings, and now 2x2 folders. In the future, this will house obscure or specialty apps from Cydia.

    Jaku: The core component that will focus on application icons, but also include small UI elements (like the Notification Center). Essentially, the core will keep things tightly integrated, allowing users to run other themes that have heavy UI customizations but still retain the essence of Jaku. Avoiding conflicts is the focus here. If someone wants to run, say, Principium UI, they can safely, without fear that a Jaku slider or a Jaku button will interfere its elements (causing breakage and forcing a user to meddle around with resource files).

    On the future of Jaku:

    The immediate concern was to ensure proper 5.1.1 compatibility. That is done (unless someone finds bugs, which can be patched pretty easily; hopefully, as we go). From this point on, all eyes are still on iOS 6. So that means new default app icons (like Passbook) to fabricate. As for the UI, Apple has done a tremendous job remodeling things. If they leave some apps alone (likely), then it may come time to step in and redo them to better suit the new ones, but it looks like iOS will get a fresh new look on the whole, so the matter may not be much of an issue anymore (I guess all those "complete" themes will pretty much be shattered; that sucks, heh). Regardless, I will be investigating the matter. Not that I don't have another project that's keeping me busy

    You da' man!

    Just wanted to pop in and mention that I purchased the Ayecon the night of release and promptly removed it the very next day and went back to Jaku. It's a nice theme and all, and I kept a couple things enabled, but it's certainly no Jaku. =)

    Thanks akrimmer for sharing that..... Now, IF I would like to keep the 2x2 folders (because I really like them), how could I make my icons to fit in there? I'm new on this.... so, is it a big procedure or is it just a matter of a simple configuration on my settings?
    There's a Mobile Substrate tweak/dylib in the themes inPulse and Ayecon that activates 2x2 folder previews.

    What's the benefit of having UI extras selected? Currently, it just seems to change the folders to 2x2 - which I don't want. Anyway I can have extras selected but not include the change to folders - or am I missing the point of something here?

    Per a recent tweet by William:

    "If anyone doesn't need the 2x2 folders, drag Jaku UI Extras under Jaku UI in WinterBoard."

    Aha. Just seen this. Ta.

    edit: That doesn't actually work.

    Nothing special here, just a basic C/P job with a little extra polish. It didn't exist, now it does.
    Enjoy it. Don't. Whatevs.....

    What, I can't do previews too?

    Oh yeah, Google Authenticator

    Yep, underscore.

    Drag it below Jaku itself.

    It looks like the [email protected]~iphone.png and [email protected]~iphone.png were supposed to be moved to Jaku UI.theme but were forgotten. The 'normal' folder icons are in Jaku.theme (springboard bundle).
