    Ok so i was browsing on New Springboards the other day and came across this theme

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    I think it is amazing but the owner has not yet responded to a question i had asked them, i was wondering how they changed the text to be so big and also the different font type, also i was wondering if anyone knew if you could do this on 1.1.4 without those blank.apps that when you click they open and freeze your ipod?

    Thanks so much

    +1 rep for any help

    That or he used "spacers",blank.apps, with the text being included with the wallpaper. Then the icons on the springboard are with categories, and then just plain icons for the apps on the dock.

    he went in photoshop and made a 320x480 image

    then he filled it with that pattern

    then he made a gradient overlay thing that goes white -> transparent

    then he went and got the 4 icons that aren't in the dock and put them on the image and used the type tool to make the words

    then he saved it as the wallpaper

    then he put it in a theme folder and made a blank image into the dock.png and put the dock icons into the Icons folder

    then he used a bunch of blank apps to fill up the right side

    tada

    hopefully that's in depth enough o.o

    thats not how he did it. the text is part of the icons.

    heres one for you, but you will have to modify it or make something like it in photoshop for the others.

    use categories, make 3 called apps, games , prefs or whatever you want to call them.

    you can either, a) put your icons into /applications/categories/icons and then choose them for the category you make (although they may just like blank when you go to the choose icon screen cos they so big) OR b) choose any default icon and then go into /private/var/root/Library/Categories and you will see folders for every category you made. replace the icon.ong in each folder with the oen you made (rename it icon.png)

    then put your apps into the categories and hide everythign in Customize except safari, and your categories. use blank apps to space them out, so order should be

    safari, blank, blank,blank
    category1, blank, blank, blank

    etc
