    ive tried massimo iphoneshop 1 which says supports 2.0.0 but i get a message saying "java not recognised as an internal or external command" <-- i have latest java installed

    i also tried the python method with iphoneshop 2 but it seems as though the python 2.5 is not being registered so i cant do anything there either.

    anyone know a way of doing it, or a way of explainign the problems above?

    Using SSH, type these commands:

    • mkdir /tmp/images
    • cd /tmp/images
    • /Applications/WinterBoard.app/UIImages

    The Other.artwork images will be in /tmp/images on your phone, with their proper names.

    SKylar, thanks man.

    if i edit them, how do i then package it back up as other artwork?

    and can the same be done for keyboards?

    What I just told you will also extractthe keyboards. As for repacking, again, don't worry abuot it. Just create a theme, or add to a theme, with a directory named UIImages. Put all of your new images in there and respring.

    Skylar, appreciate the quick response. but what would the name of the keyboards be? i guess UIImages is the other artwork right?

    i need to know keyboard common, latin and japanese. if you know what they are called would appreciate it.

    thanks again man

    That's interesting, I didn't even think of that. I guess you could temporarily rename the japanese artwork to keyboard-common (I do'nt know its exact name off the top of my head). just make sure that you back up both keyboards before you do anything.

    Skylar, whats even more interesting is that there isnt even a keyboard-japanese.artwork in /system/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework.

    do you know where else it might be stored?

    ok, i think i found it Skylar,

    theres a folder called /System/Library/TextInput/TextInput_ja.bundle

    and inside there is a TextInput_ja.artwork

    i tried renaming it to keyboard-common and running your commands again. no deal. some of the keyboard pngs are all scrambled and i dont know if thats the ones i want, but they still have the original english names, nothing about ja in there.

    and even if i could extract them, presumably it wouldnt work just putting them in my UIImages folder, since the original artwork is not in UIKitframework.


    any ideas?
