    First, let's start with icons. The following icons have changed file names on IOS 5:

    Mail
    Music
    Videos

    Mail is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Bundles/com.apple.mobilemail

    is now named "[email protected]" with a capital "I" instead of a lowercase "i"

    Music is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/Music~iphone.app

    it is now named "[email protected]"

    Videos is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/Videos.app or var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Bundles/com.apple.videos

    it is now named "[email protected]"
    -----------------------------------------
    These are the new icons:

    Newsstand
    Reminders

    Newsstand is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/Springboard.app or var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/Bundles/com.apple.springboard

    Newsstand is named "[email protected]"

    Reminders is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/Reminders.app or in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Bundles/com.apple.reminders

    Reminders is named "[email protected]"
    -----------------------------------------

    Ok, now for the UI

    I'm not going to name every single file, as some of the changes just require you to rename the folder (which is a hell of alot easier )

    We are first going to tackle the statusbar UI (which is completely changed on IOS 5)

    Ok, first navigate to var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/UIImages

    In there, you see images starting with "Silver" or "Black"

    You want to create an extra set of the "Black" images by copying them all, and renaming them in that same folder. Do the same with "Silver" images. You should have two sets of "Silver" images and two sets of "Black" images in your UIImages folder now.

    For all of the images that start with "Silver" you are going to just replace the "Silver" part in the name to "ColorOnGrayShadow". For example, you would rename "[email protected]" to "[email protected]". Do not change the [email protected] image at all, it stays the same in IOS 5.

    For the second set of "Silver" images, you will want to do the same as you did with "ColorOnGrayShadow", except replace "Silver" with "ColorOnBlackShadow" instead.

    Now for Black images (hang with me people )

    Replace the first set of "Black" images to "WhiteOnBlackShadow". This is the EXACT same process as the instructions above, just replace the "Black" part of the name with "WhiteOnBlackShadow". Also, do not rename the "[email protected]" image, it stays the same on IOS 5.

    Now for the second set of "Black" images you made earlier: replace the word "Black" with "WhiteOnBlackEtch".

    And that is it for statusbar UI
    -----------------------------------

    Now for iPod UI:

    The folder is located in var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Bundles/com.apple.mobileipod


    As you might notice, a few elements in the music app are not themed on IOS 5. This is a very simple fix. Rename the com.apple.iPod (or just make a copy of the folder and rename that copied folder name) to com.apple.iPodUI . That fixes it

    -----------------------------------

    Progress gears (this one's the biggest pain in the azz to be honest haha)

    Change the progress gears with only the word "[email protected]" at the end to the following respectively:

    [email protected] to [email protected]

    Change the progress gears with only the word "[email protected]" at the end to the following respectively:

    [email protected] to [email protected]

    Change the progress gears with only the word "[email protected]" at the end to the following respectively:

    [email protected] to [email protected]

    Change the progress gears with only the word "[email protected]" at the end to the following respectively:

    [email protected] to [email protected]

    Change the progress gears with only the word "[email protected]" at the end to the following respectively:

    [email protected] to [email protected]

    -----------------------------

    UISearch bar (image located in SMS app)

    Navigate to var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/UIImages

    Copy "[email protected]" and name the copy "[email protected]"

    -----------------------------

    Chatkit is also changed on IOS 5

    Go to var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Bundles/com.apple.chatkit or var/stash/themes/Folder.theme/Folders/ChatKit.framework

    Make a copy of [email protected] and name it "[email protected]

    Make a copy of "[email protected]" and name it "[email protected]"

    Make a copy of "[email protected]" and name it "[email protected]"

    -------------------------------

    These are the list of file changes, I will add the list of new images later. Feel free to ask questions, and enjoy peeps

    Also, I will provide a template you can download of the basic setup, and also, "Folder.theme" is the name of the theme you are porting. This takes a large amount of time, especially when done right, and the first time. I've ported several themes, and I will be adding to this tutorial, it's just that my fingers are killing me now haha.

    thanks for the new file name and locations. very helpful. but i still need to locate and change a few more .png's to finish off my themes transition from ios 4 to ios 5.

    can anyone help with the following. i need the new file names or locations for:-
    1. the buttons and images in the red circles in the attached images.
    2. the image size and location of the round switches.
    3. the original NewsStand icon .png.
    4. how to change the font colour in the mail folder image.

    i would like to have all of the original ios 5 images. so that i can mess around with them an apply them to my theme. so the ultimate question is, can i download a complete stock ios 5 theme from somewhere, or is there a way to extract the images from the ios 5 update file?
    Attached Thumbnails iOS 4x to IOS 5x file changes-image11.png   iOS 4x to IOS 5x file changes-image22.png

    can you take a screen shot and indicate which part you are referring to. that way, people can help you out a lot quicker.

    i know this is not what you are after....but it's what i think your asking for, the file can be found in the UIImages folder. for the life of me, i cant remember the file name, but a little bit of trial and error, im sure you'll be able to figure out what file it is. just remember, that...that file will alter other apps...its a generic file that most of the apps use....so it might look good in one app, but crap in another.

    You mean the image behind the slider, or the image on the bottom part?
