Depth: Page Indicator background by jonarific Depth: Page Indicator background by jonarific
Update: This theme is now available as a MobileSubstrate extension by ashikase, which achieves the same effect while greatly simplifying the installation and fixing a few minor flaws that were unavoidable with the previous WinterBoard-only basis. Get more information or download the .deb file!

I have always somewhat disliked the way the home screen's page indicators float freely between dock and regular icons, without any interface element that separates them from either of those. That's why I've created Depth, a tweak that adds a minimal and elegant indent behind them. It's a nice little addition to your home screen background, and a means of improving the layout structure (by acting as a separator) at the same time.

The best thing about this? It applies to any wallpaper automatically! Depth isn't just a set of wallpapers with an indent at the right place; it actually skins a system file called WallGradient. That way, the indent will be added directly on the device, no matter which wallpaper you choose!

Because of the fact that the page indicators' position depends on the height of your dock image, follow the steps inside Installation.txt to determine which version of this theme is suited for your theming setup. If this theme does not work for you at all, please make sure it is at the very top of your WinterBoard theme list. Be reminded that when using a theme with a custom Wallpaper file (such as themes providing home screen widgets), this will not have any effect.

If you encounter any problems, please let me know. Other than that, enjoy! :D


Inspired by ~montydesi's Repapllaw wallpaper pack. The icons in the preview are from Quab HD, the page indicators are bundled with Jaku.

Very nice, but obviously not working on my iPad.
.
I'd like to request iPad 3 versions.
Which as far as inexperienced me can tell are:
WallpaperGradientLandscapeBottom@2x~ipad.png -> 2x762
WallpaperGradientLandscapeTop@2x~ipad.png -> 2x194
WallpaperGradientPortraitBottom@2x~ipad.png -> 2x1018
WallpaperGradientPortraitTop@2x~ipad.png -> 2x272

Thanks!

Sure, I'll give an iPad version a shot! Could you possibly not just tell me the filenames, but actually send (note) me those images? To be honest, I'm a little confused by the somewhat random-looking dimensions of each of them, so I'd like to see what's actually going on there. ;)

(sorry for the late reply)

I took a look at the images, but didn't really figure anything out because I obvioulsy don't exactly know where the page indicators are located on the iPad. However, this theme has been transformed into a MobileSubstrate extension that offers all kinds of improvements, such as iPad support! Detailed information is available here. :D
