    I would lend you an iPad to create this with but we are continents away. haha.

    I would like to create a few of my own icons (Plex is my main focus right now) and have seen you guys talking about it. I know I will have to save as PNG with transparent packground, but once I've gotten that far, how do replace the original icon with mine in your theme?

    Look in \Dreamboard\NextGenUI3\Icons and feel free to replace them as you like: the [email protected] is the high quality icon that the retina display uses, you don't need to worry about the lower res icons, they're just for pre-retina devices like the iPhone 3/G

    Here is a PLEX icon for ya!

    NextGenUI [A HD Theme]-plex-2x.png

    I know you can't see it here. Let me know if you still want it. Or, ill make a different one.

    @Groovy, I'm keeping a folder with icons I make and will get them to you as I get more.

    Don't seem to be having much luck do we? Hahaha. Right then I'm guessing that has something to do with OPlayer having an image mask or the png you saved has transparency problems? Maybe try resaving the png? What graphics software are you using?
    I'm using Photoshop CS5.1. Never had this issue before.

    Figured it out, Groovy. I can NOT delete the grey mask that you have. I was tinkering with seeing how it looked without it; looked really nice, except my icon had this black box behind it. Other than that, The only way to theme it is to have the [email protected] icon in the Dreamboard folder and the Bundle Identifier Folder with [email protected] in it. I think it has to do with how the developer of the app (OPlayer) created the icon as it is for iPhone and iPad.
    So, with knowing this, off to make a bunch of icons!!!!!!!!

    OK. I added some icons and Bundle Folder to the Dropbox account I created for us. The login for the Dropbox is [email protected] and pass is RotatorWheel.

    There is also a psd for a template to make other icons (for size reference only). Be sure to deselect this layer before saving as a png. The grey shadow is the 130x130 icon image size and the background (200x200) is transparent.

    Have fun! And, I'll post more as I get them made as well!

    Awesome! Thanks so much! So I just put this in the NextGen icons folder through iFile and it will replace the standard icon with this one?

    OK. I just made an SBSetting theme for this. I know its a little bright. But I want to see if others are ok. I'm gonna mod it a little to take the color down... ALOT! Let me know if anyone wants to try it.

    Edit: I made the blue background dark grey and more transparent. The only thing I have to figure out is how to change the font of the text to black so it is more legible. Other than that. Let me know and I'll make whatever changes are needed.

    That's how it should work. Just make sure it is named the same way. I don't have it as I use XBMC. but, if you need the info on the icon... Download Appinfo from Cydia (free) and it will give you correct naming of the icon.

    Screeny of the SBSettings so far:

    The theme still lags even on the low setting. Anything I can do to make it faster?

    Turn some mobile substrate add-ons off. I turned off Springtomize and lag disappeared. Plus ram use went down as well.

    If your available ram is below 130 mb, it will lag some. I run fine with about 210 to 250 mb avail.

    Make sure you have the Winterboard themes "NexGenUI3" and "NextGenUILock" running. Those have the lockscreen theming (Dreamboard has a bug that wont theme lockscreen in 6.1) and the Theme for NextGen has the bundle packages to theme you ui for phone, chat, etc.,..

    As gd said, make sure you've got your Winterboard themes applied

    Not yet sorry, I will get on it at some point

    Make sure you disable any springboard addon you've got because they will be using up pointless RAM while you're using dreamboard

    Hey looks good! I'll definitely get on one with an Auxo theme when I get a chance to sit down with it again

    ... I say I haven't got time to do this but to be honest I've been trying to revise and end up playing around with this haha

    Hmm, make sure Summerboard mode is off? Though I haven't had any complaints from anyone else running 6.1.3 so I don't think it's a problem with the version :/
