    I tried making a custom icon today for ABC 30 news and I like the way it looks but i'm stuck on the last part of creating the actual icon.

    Can somebody tell me the next steps I need to do after placing my image on the PSD? As you can see here in the screenshot I got the image to how I want and I believe it's placed in the correct layer on the bottom right. I am not sure what to do next though? Do I just go to File > Save as > PNG? I tried this and the icons won't change yet everything I downloaded off Jaku Repo shows perfectly so it's something I'm doing wrong.

    I did follow the first parts of the guide in setting up the Canvas Size 118x118 then another 118x120 and did the above but not sure how to finish creating the icon. Any help would be appreciated.

    edit: could it be that the ABC 30 pic that i'm using is too big thus the icon is not working?

    1st post~ how is everyone doing?

    So, I love this Jaku theme (surprise!).

    However, I have not the slightest understand of how to install new icons! I've visited jakurepo.com and browsed these threads some. I downloaded AppInfo and iFile via Cydia on my iPhone 4S. I can find the app's bundle name (Google Chrome = "stable.app" correct?); But how in the heck do install new icons?? I go to repo, click the icon, & download which version: 114x114 or 118x120? I have the 4S. Then what...could someone please help me out? I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
    Welcome rover.

    Applications installed via the AppStore or through iTunes synch require 114x114px icons. WebClips too.
    The other applications (those which come pre-installed with iOS and apps/tweaks from Cydia) use 118x120px icons.
    In iFile, browsing to /var/mobile/Applications/Chrome/stable.app/Info.plist,



    grab its CFBundleIdentifier string :



    That's what you want to name the folder holding Chrome's icon.

    Now look at the CFBundleIconFile (/s) string (/array), still in its Info.plist
    It'll give you the name of the icon.


    Chrome being an AppStore icon, the image needs to be sized 114x114px. Name this image [email protected]
    If the Info.plist of the app doesn't include a CFBundleIconFile (/s), the icon can ONLY be named one of the 4 following standard names : icon.png / [email protected] / Icon.png / [email protected]

    The folder best goes in the 'Bundles' folder of your custom theme you're going to select & drag above Jaku in WinterBoard before a respring in WinterBoard.

    1. Does it change all icons, or just bitesms
    It doesn't. It's only for the icons having transparency to have the wallpaper show through.
    2. Saw some jaku 3 weeks ago. That had some diferent edges,(zinked) looked pretty sweet... AnyOne know about this,

    That's a particular mask chevymusclecar applied on top of his Jaku icons.

    Welp, first icon since Jaku was resurrected. Time Surfer. If you don't own this game, you should. It's like Tiny wings but much more retro and just plain cool. The music rocks!

    Hello, I'm new here and got here through the jakurepo.com site. I want to be an icon contributor (mainly for the dutch people out there), but I have no idea how to upload anything. It seems i'm lacking permissions. But I can't request artist permissions because I have to upload something first. Can anyone help me out?

    I made icons for dutch apps 3FM (dutch radio station), AD.nl (dutch newspaper) and 9292 (public transport):

    They can be found on my dropbox account

    Hi there, I am new to this whole jailbreaking editing thing, and I was just wondering how you could update some of the icons on the Jaku theme. I tried editing my iPod's files last year, and I messed up somewhere along the way, so I'm sort of afraid to try it again. I now have an iPhone 4S on 6.1, so I was wondering if someone could give me detailed steps as to how to do it. Thanks so much

    I can tell you how I have always done that's really simple. Some will say it slows your phone down, however with my personal experience I've never had a problem.
    Open ifile and go var/stash/themes and open jacku essentials. Once you've opened jacku essentials you want to create a folder and name it Icons. Place the icon you want in there twice. Spell it EXACTLY how it appears on your springboard. You will put .png at the end of one of one of the images and @2x.png behind the other.
    So for example if your changing cydia it will look like this: Cydia.png [email protected].
    Turn summer board on, respring and there ya go!

    Bryan made some handy tutorials for doing basic cut and paste icons. Search You Tube for Jaku Tutorials. Start with this one:

    Figured that was coming lol. Like I've said that how I was taught, it's simple, and I've never had a problem.
    However after finding out about app info and how to create my own bundles theme, I may try that method and turn my summer board off and see if there is a difference.

    may i please have this wallpaper?
    Here ya go, I found it over in the auros thread

    A little off topic, but does anyone know where to find the dock themes (or similar) from the Jaku repo for iPad? In particular, the simple dock by bjbinc (my favourite) and wood docks. Just trying to get my iPad mini themed to look as similar to my iPhone as possible. Hopefully a Jaku iPad theme to crown it off in the future. *fingers crossed*
    Sorry to be the one telling you that but Will clearly stated a few times that the Jaku for iPad will only support Retina devices, so it probably won't support the iPad Mini, maybe iPad mini 2 (If he'll ever get to even see a jailbreak)

    I have a problem with my setup. It's still work in progress but the shadows under my icons seem to be a little off. How can I solve this?
    I have More Icons and Shrink installed. No matter what settings I change there, the shadow stays like that.

    Hopefully the next mini will be retina. It makes sense.

    iPad mini when the new JB comes out after release day. Why not make it for what we have now? I know is a lot of work but we will now anyways.
