IMPORTANT!! Open WinterBoard and turn "SummerBoard Mode" OFF! This theme has been optimized for iPhone 4 and will not work properly if that option is ON.
WINTERBOARD SETUP In order to enjoy all the different theme options please prioritize them in the EXACT same order as the screenshot below. Remember, WinterBoard is priority specific so whatever is selected on top, will take priority.
NOTE: This is how I have my options set up in winterboard. You can experiment with what options work best for you. Try selecting and unselecting each of them before you say something doesn't work!
CLEAR ICON CACHE(using iFile) You may need to clear the icon cache after installing this theme. This requires you to manually SSH into your device so you can access the root files and can easily be done by using FREE programs like WinSCP, Cyberduck, and my personal favorite, iFile(found on Cydia). My instructions below are for using iFile since it can be done directly from your device and there is no need for a wi-fi connection or computer/laptop.
1. Go to Cydia and search for 'iFile' and install.
2. Open iFile and press the top left navigation button until you get to the 'root' directory. You will know you're there when you can't go any further and you see '/' at the top.
3. Scroll down and navigate through the following folders:
4. Press 'Edit' button top right, select all files then press the trash icon on bottom to delete.(Don't worry this is 100% safe!)
5. Press 'Done' button top right, exit iFile.
6. Respring device(You may need to Reboot device by holding down the home and power buttons simultaneously and then let go when you see the Apple logo.
WEATHER+DATE WIDGET SETUP NOTE:There is a great new app on Cydia called 'Gridlock' for $.99 that will eliminate the need for iBlank and BlankNull and the instructions below all together.
You will need to install the following FREE apps via Rock or Cydia in order to create a spacer on the top row of each springboard page so the weather & date widgets are visible.
*iBlank- creates blank icons
*BlankNull- makes it so nothing happens when you press a blank icon..without it safari will open every time you accidentally press on a blank icon(this will not create an icon on your springboard)
1. Open 'iBlank' and create 4 blank icons for every springboard page u have..for example, if you have 10 pages of apps u will need to create 40 blank icons.
2. Click and hold down on any icon until all icons go into 'wiggle' mode..the blank icons you created can usually be found on the last springboard page(they are invisible and the only thing u will see is an 'x')...put 4 blank icons on the top row of each page, creating an empty space for the date widget. When done, press the 'Home' button.
3. Open 'WinterBoard' and select "G.O.C. HD_Weather+Date" and make sure it is selected and make sure it is above "G.O.C. HD".
IMPORTANT!!When you enable the Weather+Date option in winterboard the stock Weather & Calendar icons become transparent. The reason for this is so you can put those icons behind their respective widgets and when pressed those apps will launch. Therefore, on the home page you will need to put them in the following order: Weather, blank, blank, Calendar.
NOTE:If you have WeatherIcon installed DISABLE IT/TURN IT OFF when using the Weather+Date options!
CHANGING WEATHER TO YOUR LOCATION(using iFile) 1. Go: Yahoo! Weather
2. Enter your City or zip code(press enter), then click on the "Extended Forecast" option underneath the "6-10 DAY"
3. In the top address bar of your browser you'll see an address, for example: "http://weather....USNY0996...."
4. This the Weather code that you need, for example: USNY0996
5. Now SSH into your device using iFile and navigate to:
private/var/stash/Themes or Themes.xxxxx(4.1 firmware)/G.O.C. HD_Weather+Date.theme/Widget.html IMPORTANT:If you're using the Weather+DateMOD or PRO_Weather widget then u need to edit the 'Widget.html' found inside the appropriate theme folder
6. Select 'Text viewer' and scroll down to where you see "var locale = "USNY0996" //e.g..", press 'Edit'(top right) and then edit the code to your hometown code that you found on yahoo weather(5 digit zip code also works for U.S. Cities).
7. If you want to change to celsius look in the same Widget.html string for this: "Farenheit var isCelsius = false" and change it to "true"
8. Press 'Done'.
9. Respring device.
CHANGING WALLPAPER WHEN USING WEATHER & DATE WIDGETS(Springboard only!) 1. Open winterboard and make sure 'G.O.C. HD_UserWallpaper' is on the very top and selected.
2. Select the wallpaper of your choice via Settings>Wallpaper or your camera roll.
3. Respring device.(wow, that was easy!)
NOTE:Feel free to use the custom wallpapers when using 'G.O.C. HD_PRO_Weather/Date' options by downloading the 'G.O.C. HD_PRO_Weather_Wall.zip' attached below. You can use any wallpaper from your camera roll when using the weather+date widgets by selecting the 'G.O.C. HD_UserWallpaper' option in winterboard(Make sure it is on the very top). You must RESPRING YOUR DEVICE each time before your wallpaper will appear. If you're NOT using the Weather+Date option DO NOT HAVE 'G.O.C. HD_UserWallpaper' SELECTED IN WINTERBOARD!!
LOCKSCREEN WALLPAPER OPTIONS I have attached a zip file below with different flavors of wallpapers for the lockscreen to match with the springboard wallpapers. Email all the individual LockBackground@2x wallpapers to yourself and save them to your camera roll, OR create a folder, i.e. 'G.O.C. HD Wallpapers' and sync it with your photo album via iTunes. Then you can easily choose one, or any image of your choice, by going into 'Photos' and setting one as your lock screen.
ICON REQUESTS(Rock & Cydia ONLY!)
Rock & Cydia icons DO NOT automatically get themed. I have only added a handful of icons with my initial release and in order for others to be added they have to be requested and then I can add them to future updates.
IMPORTANT:If the app you are looking for is not found on the database you will need to SSH into your device and navigate to:
root/Applications - then follow the steps below:
1. Find the application folder in question - For example, 'iClassic.app'
2. Open the Info.plist file and look for 'CFBundleIdentifier' - Under that u will see the bundle info needed. For example, 'net.epelaez.iClassic'
3. Search in the same application folder for the app icon name - For example, 'Icon.png'. There may be multiple "icon" images, for example 'icon-72.png', 'firstname.lastname@example.org' etc. I will need all of them. Make sure they are spelled and capitalized exactly!
Don't forget to add the CFBundleIdentifier info to the online database!
**Please attach HI-RES images of the icons in your post(screenshots of low-res icons will not work) - If u can't find a hi-res icon of the original app/icon, then just find ANY hi-res image that best represents it. For example, if the app is 'iClassic', then find a hi-res image of an iPod etc. The possibilities are endless! Don't make it any harder than it isn't
Make sure to include the CFBundleIdentifier info in your post. Alternatively you can download the attached 'email@example.com' below and make them yourself - Please share them back here with the community for all to enjoy!
LOCKSCREEN CLOCK FONT If you want the same lockscreen clock font as seen in my screenshots install 'FontSwap' and 'Porsche FontSwap' found on Rock or Cydia. Open FontSwap and select the 'PORSCHE' font as your LockClock font.
WALLPAPER HD OVERLAYS Attached below you will find a zip with few wallpaper overlays(WallpaperHD_Overlays.zip) that you can easily drop your own custom backgrounds behind. You will need photoshop or some other image editing software so you can put your background layer beneath the WallpaperHD layer..looks best when using the PROweather widget
