iPod Video Theme Gallery

Please do not upload themes to these pages. Use the Rockbox Theme site instead



This Wiki page contains permissively licensed WPS files for the iPod 5/5.5G series of DAPs, for other models and instructions on how to upload a WPS, see WpsGallery.

For all iPod Video WPS files not (currently) released under a permissive license please see WpsIpod5gGraveyard

Broken Themes

You may run into themes that do not work, this means 1 of 2 things:
1. The theme is broken, or
2. The theme uses patches or features not currently part of SVN.

If after checking to make sure you have the correct build, the theme still does not work you can:

1.request the author fix the theme via email, a forum post or PM etc.

2.fix the theme yourself, you can use a simulator to help you (use the --debugwps switch) : http://rasher.dk/rockbox/simulator

If you have fixed a theme, the updated version should be uploaded here (only, if the license is compatible, i.e.: CC-by-SA, GPL, etc.). Please honour the original author's intent and don't upload a "fix" which changes features or behavior. If you wish to modify a theme in this manner rerelease it under a new name.

Useful links for editing themes

warning Important warning

In case the theme you choose does not include the required font you should install the Rockbox font pack (install it the same way as a rockbox build).

AAFreak

AAFreak.png AAFreak_noaa.png AAFreak_menu.png

Download: AAFreak.zip

I am an Album Art Freak!! So that's why I called this theme AAFreak; it uses the max size you can get for the iPod 5G: 240x240. You probably will have to resize all your album arts to 240x240 but trust me, it's worth it.. (plus you can use IrfanView for mass resize). Without Viewports, this theme wouldn't have been possible.

The No Album Art screen can also be accessible by setting the hold switch on.

For any issues or comments, please send me a private message inside the Rockbox Forums. My userid is bzavala.

Aaron's World View

AaronsWorldView.jpg

Download: AaronsWorldView.zip

I didn't quite find what I was looking for so started hacking my own wps. I wanted the largest album art (137X173) I could get while still maintaining 3 full lines of large type text. Song, Artist, Album. (21pt bold font). I also wanted black on white. I only wanted to include information I would actually use but there is plenty of space left over if anyone would like to add a bit more. I'd like to add some icons for some bits of info like volume, play status etc. but that didn't happen on this first iteration. Icons and background image were used from Escape Pod +. Everything else has been so heavily edited as to be called original work.

arboxWidgets

This theme was created with the goal of displaying as much control information as possible, also including some Rockbox powerful features, not so usually displayed in other themes , such as crossfade or replaygain modes. Each “widget” allows a quick visual setting’s control or information status check. Displays 115x115 Album Art. Works on recent official builds. Enjoy!

AW200

Since the Fullscreen theme by Ben Zavala was uploaded, I had in mind using his layout idea together with some arboxWidgets theme elements to display 200x200 album art (that would have the... very creative... name of AW200); Mark Coleman did it first (and quite nicely) in his iPhoneLike theme. I decided to upload my version anyway, because it has a few differences: AW200 displays numerical values for volume and battery %, has a repeat mode widget, displays next song and playlist name using alternating lines, uses a larger font for displaying the song info, and the font also supports European accents etc. Besides the widgets graphics differences, the other graphics have been re-done (not because M. Coleman wouldn’t agree to use his – in fact he kindly did agree – but to avoid possible licensing issues). This theme is designed for displaying 200x200 album art, but one good thing about it is that other album art sizes look also very nice (3rd screenshot below), and also even when there is no album art. Works under the Official Build. Have fun

*Requires Pies Julius Patches.*
Recommended builds:Rockbox jbuild or EvilG's build (Fusion flavor)

A WPS I made to celebrate Rockbox on the 80gig iPod. I love this color combination and in fact my iPod is painted with this color combo, so now everything matches. All graphics are my own excluded the icons. This WPS was inspired the the Pies Julius themes and patches and represents my first attempt to create a WPS with them. Also includes the Eli Sherer iconsets (with the appropriate settings).

Archive includes the Photoshop .psd file if anyone wants to edit.

Now Available in three different versions: original, non-album art, and album art aware. The album art aware version will center the information on the screen if no album art is present. *all three still require the previously mentioned builds*

Classical Dark

ClassicalDarkSD.png

Displays both Composer (1st line) and Artist tags (4th line) which are both important eg. in Western classical music. The lines 2nd and 3rd are intended for the Album (a multipart work such as a symphony) and Track titles (the parts of the work). If some of those tags are missing, the file name and directories are displayed instead. Long lines scroll.

The background picture comes from Ubuntu Linux (warty-final-ubuntu.png) with colours swapped (licensed GPL). The alt_backgrounds directory of the .zip contains colour alternatives of the background. If you prefer some non-violet or something of your own, just put it into the backdrops directory and rename it to Classical_Dark.bmp (delete the previous Classical_Dark.bmp before).

The WPS and theme use the 20-Terminus-Bold.fnt font of the Rockbox fonts package.

Glass N Shadows v1.2

glassnshadows.png

Download: Glass N Shadows v1.1

It's taken a little while, but I've finally finished the Glass N Shadows theme pack (and by "finished" I mean that I'm sufficiently satisfied with it that I'm willing to let others see it"). I've chosen 4 "natural setting" images to serve as the tie-together. Hopefully this makes the theme a little more appealing to greater number of people. NOTE - As far as I know, all of the images that I've used are free for non-commercial use. If you believe differently, please let me know at my web site, listed below. I will always do my best to respect the private property / ideas of others.

About the themes: There is no special Rockbox build needed. The themes look best (and were intended to be run) with the "icons" turned on, and the "line selector type" set to pointer. Album art is supported @ 100x100. Song rating is supported. All files needed are included in the pack (this includes icons, fonts etc.) I have 2 more in the set that I did not include in this package. Both use Texas sports team logos, and I didn't want to violate any copyrights on this site. If you would like to get the full pack, including the 2 extras, you can do so at my website http://pages.suddenlink.net/klas. As always feel free to leave me some constructive (notice the word "constructive") criticism by clicking the email link at my site.

EDIT 1 (06/24/2008) - Since I've had a couple of requests for alternate Texas sports team themes, I decided to make a separate sports pack. There are now an additional 11 sports themes that can be downloaded.

EDIT 2 (07/11/2008) - I have upgraded the Glass-N-Shadows theme pack to version 1.1. All themes in the pack should work with the current (as of 07/11/2008) Rockbox build.

iRocker

This theme is based on iRock by Gaston

The formatting of information is closer to that of the iPod's original firmware, having the track info listed Track Title, Artist, and Album from top to bottom. There are a few other changes too, like 12 hour time format, volume bar from the escape pod wps, and the next song icon from the jBlackGlass theme by PiesJulius. As well as minor text formatting adjustments. There a several other changes, so if you want to know all of them, go to my forum post.

kelp

kelp woohoo

License: CC Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 (Feel free to edit and reupload for fixes.)

A yummy text-only wps with inspiration from Andrew Mason's dark-geek theme. kelp uses helvR12 for the font and relies quite a bit on conditionals--it only displays things (album artist, sleep timer, playlist name, hold, repeat info, shuffle, disk activity, charging indicator replacing batt%) when necessary. Colors default to black background w/ white text and the backdrop is also included and loaded by default. Feel free to replace it with one of your own. Any of my backdrops are scaled down versions of pictures I took and all are licensed CC-BY-NC-SA. The default tango iconset is loaded (just like cabbiev2).

Also note that if you have untagged files that are in the common artist/album directory structure, now playing info will be displayed properly in lieu of tags. However, by default, next song info only works for tagged files. I did include the code (commented out) to enable it though, so see the .wps file for the that. Enjoy!

New from v1.2 to 1.4: Added conditionals for album artist, sleep timer, and playlist name. Fixed progress bar. Set cfg to load tango iconset.

kelpbig

License: CC Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 (Feel free to edit and reupload for fixes.)

In my quest for something more simple and legible, I came up with this. Background is included but the font isn't. Theme config sets the font to "9+18x18B" from the fontpack--it works, but isn't very pretty. The font in the screenshot is Calibri Bold 14pt, converted simply (it's easy--5mins I PROMISE!) with the Rockbox font converter. Corbel Bold 14 also is a fun choice. (If you don't have Vista and aren't feeling creative enough to find any other fonts that work well, you can get the Vista fonts by downloading the MS Office 2007 Compatibility Pack and either installing it or extracting them from the cab file.) Note: the included config doesn't load/change any iconsets. Enjoy!

New from v1.2 to 1.4: Added conditional for playlist name & sleep timer and fixed the progress bar. Made the selection bar use colors instead of inverse.

Of course it is only an extension of the original, so all the rights are untouched and still up-to-date wink

Pen&Paper_plus (Album Art + next song + waving man)

I really like the original Pen&Paper theme by Johan Swetzen, and also Dominique Bellenger's idea of including album art and next song; I decided to remake what she did, because the version she posted "kills" the original version on your iPod since they have exactly the same name (If you download Pen&paper_Plus, you can keep also the original version), but also because I wanted to keep the very characteristic waving man (screenshots below). The menu screen is like in the original version. Works fine under current official builds.

I’m a big fan of the rayboradio theme (Immolate & knight4led), developed initially for a patched build. This is a modified version that will work on current official builds. I quite enjoy it and thought I might share it as an alternative. Some features of the original version had to be left out, but this one works fine and has also some additional features you might like; crossfade enable icons, playlist information, more accurate battery power display, are some examples.

REdBlenD?

Tested on Rocbox 3.1 (no patches or custom builds required) January 17, 2009

I took the "Ipod Simple" theme and modified it to fit what I wanted in a WPS. All the images are original work by the way. Just variations of gradients is all they are. I wanted a simple wps similar to the original Ipod WPS screen and the effects it has with the volume bar. The theme has all the fonts, icons and pictures in the zip file. It was tested with Rockbox 3.1 this week so it should work fine unless there are ANY changes in the .wps syntax (see CustomWPS). The only thing you cannot see in the picture is the volume bar which appears and covers the progress bar when the volume is being adjusted. Also there is no album art support yet but that's why we have the creative commons license. So if someone wants to add it then go ahead. I think this is the first theme made after 3.1 was released. By the way if you want to make a similar theme with your own background here is a little bit of help (with editing bitmaps at least) MOHDMACH's blog.

Rocker

Rocker

This is a little theme I created because I wanted to keep my musical roots while listening to music on my iPod. Very different WPS view I took.

Here is an updated version of the Rockflow Theme. It now uses album art at 150x150 (but you can change that to 100x100). The feature that if you turn the hold switch on, additional track information is displayed, is still there. Hope you all like it!

Note: This theme does not add cover flow to Rockbox the background image looks like cover flow but it is an image only. The currently playing album art is displayed in the center.


Simplex

UPDATED: v1.1 April 29 2007

I set out to make this with the goal of being able to read the ipod while driving, but not at the cost of making an awkward, ugly, uninformative WPS. I wanted to make a WPS that didn't require a patched build, but could still be clean, clear, informative, easy to read, and visually impressive. All text on the screen has a one space border so that it doesn't run to the very edge (makes a difference when you see some lines hitting the edge and others padded). I wanted to use this WPS for my ipod while driving so the font size is kept large. Overall I think this looks very nice on my white ipod, maybe an inverse version is in order for the black ipod users wink the last 2 lines of information are dedicated to all the little information we all like to know about the music we're playing.

The Next area alternates through (for 6 sec each) -Next song -Next artist -Next album

The info area alternates through (for 6 sec each) -file codec, bitrate (avg) kbps sizeKB total track time -playlist name playlist position -battery time left (chrg) volume in dB

The background used is from the KDE artwork package, modified with GIMP, all other images are original, made with GIMP. Feel free to edit this WPS as you like, just mention the author if you distribute it somewhere. If you'd like the xcf (GIMP image) or I can make a .psd, PM me on rockbox forums (rockbox.org)

Installation: extract to the root of your iPod. note: due to the time tags being changed recently, the time may not be displayed properly on older builds. Either update to the latest build or change the line that says

Theme based on the "AmaroK" theme by GaryLight?

I took the basic layout of it, changed the pictures (the progressbar is the same converted to greyscale). The menu and WPS background pictures come from the Creative Commons part of Flickr (BY license).

It uses an unicode font capable of displaying cjk, hebrew and cyrillic found on the Flyspray (links are provided in the cfg and wps files).

v1.01 edit 14 Jun 2007 by RyanSawhill: Only fixed the lock bitmap for the hold indicator. The area surrounding it wasn't totally pink (255,0,255) and therefore wasn't completely transparent.


Yo Bunny


For standard rockbox.
By far my weirdest WPS, I saw this user image on KDE-look.org, and immediately had the idea to make this WPS. I decided to keep the focus on the bunny, and the loudness so the information is kept minimal without compromising the essentials. The play status is indicated by the whiskers, they point in the direction of seeking (ff and rw), blink on pause (and stop), and are neutral while playing (as in the screenshot), and the progress bar fills the mouth. Also includes the buff black iconset (with the appropriate settings).

Archive includes the GIMP .xcf images, as well as the .svg from kde-look.org.
