Update 8/7:
New Yumekui iPod theme available here.


Well, I made a "Frienger" iPod theme using iPodWizard and I guess I should share it here with those of you who would like your iPod to look a little different from others. Boogie

This theme only works with 5G iPod (iPod video, not Nano) since that's the one I have. Before I give you the instruction on how to install this theme, I guess you would probably like to see a few preview screenshot to have a feel how it will look like once you install it on your iPod:

Is that cool enough for you to go through the hassle of installing this theme? Well, I do hope some of you will find this theme interesting and useful, here's the link to download the theme file: Frienger iPod theme file (70kb .ipw)

To install this theme into your iPod, follow these instructions:
  1. Download and install the latest firmware upgrade from Apple website (remember to install it once you downloaded)
  2. Download and extract the latest version of iPodWizard (currently 1.2)
  3. Run the iPodWizard program
  4. Choose "Open Updater...", then go to "Happy\Program Files\iPod\iPod Updater 2006-06-28" and open the updater executable file (.exe)
  5. Select 5th Generation iPod as your firmware, click "Load"
  6. Once everything is loaded, go to "Themes" tab
  7. Click "Load Theme", browse to the folder where you have downloaded my "Frienger" theme file (.ipw)
  8. Click "Write" under Firmware information, click "Yes" to confirm writing (you might want to backup the updater exe file before you write your changes to make it easier for you to revert back to the good old classic theme if needed)
  9. Your firmware is now updated with your custom theme
  10. Plug in your iPod, click "Downgrade Firmware" (beside the "Write" button you used 2 step before)
  11. Run the updated iPod updater software located at "Happy\Program Files\iPod\iPod Updater 2006-03-23"
  12. Upgrade your iPod firmware by clicking "Update"
  13. Wait for your iPod to reboot, once it's done, you can close this updater and go to iTunes to eject your iPod safely

That's all, I hope some of you here who happen to have 5G iPod will enjoy this. Nod If you have any problem, feel free to ask them here. The iPodWizard community has made a flash video tutorial for you to change a theme if my explanation confuses you. So yeah, tell me if any of you are able to get this to work with your iPod, I haven't fully tested this yet. Surprised

You should be able to select your type of ipod when you import the theme into iPodWizard.

I love it just like how I like the forum theme haha. The official colors goes together so well, and gives a fresh, spring, feeling~
The ipod skin sounds like a way big hassle than phone skins na~ Ipod should allow skins. *nods*

I really don't appreciate these so-called "hackers" giving away a product that doesn't even work on iPod's preferred OS. I think THEY SUCK. And YOU SUCK for supporting them, eyn you Mac hater you! Tongue

You should make more Ai themes for those who don't see the Apple-light. A SMILY one with the SMILYS as the stars! And even a BIIDAMA one with the BIIdama as the stars! And momo NO hana BIRA with that little sprite dude as the stars! And make a generic one with LOVE-chan as the stars! And a LOVE PUNCH one with jelly beans as the star!

Get to it, eyn, chop chop!

It looks gorgeous, but I'm afraid to try it. Since that software looks really not-nice and stuff. But good job! You sure can make anything Surprised This might be my last post before my dad takes my computer away for repair. Bye!

I made a new iPod theme for Yumekui, this time it's more brownish and textureish. There's a small bug with the volume bar that I can't fix since the volume bar is shorter than the time bar and the graphic I used is width dependent, so the volume bar somehow got cut off a little near the end. Nonetheless, the colour scheme is quite attractive IMO and if you like brown and brownish purple, you might enjoy this theme.

Download (70kb .ipw)

For detailed instruction on how to put this on your iPod, read the first post. Don't worry, loading this theme is as simple as upgrading your iPod firmware using the official upgrader. Wink

If you used the latest upgrader from Apple i.e. the 2006-06-28, you will need this patch to downgrade your firmware.
