Z-Nano Theme Z-Nano Main

This is a mash up theme. It is a combination of attributes and design features from Neeon Black by Dmitry Borzenkov, and iPod Vision by Aaron Gonzalez so all the design cred goes to them. I just swapped things around and made a few tweaks of my own.

My personal tweaks include...
- Edit to color and design of images.
- Edit of the volume display code to show decibel view
- Addition of time to the WPS screen
- Use of scroll code for titles
- Use of conditionals to show file and folder names if ID tags are not present.

Nano Cover Art

NanoCoverArt screenshot NanoCoverArt screenshot

This theme is designed for an iPod nano sized screen. It's based around displaying the cover art.

The theme uses the maximum cover art size (currently 100x100) and tries to fit a few extra bits of information down the side as well. It uses the built in status bar at the top, to pack most of the useful info into a compact space. At the bottom you have the traditional Title/Artist/Album triplet, which alternates between the current track and the next track.

I've used the 6x9 font in the screenshots. You can also get away with nedore-9.fnt for better readability, but the song title bumps up against the cover art a bit.

Accessibility theme.
This theme is designed to help visualy-impaired people to use rockbox. The goal is to maximise character size without removing too much (useful?) information. Colors have also been chosen to maximize contrast while keeping an hopefuly pleasant look.
Some ideas and bits have been shamelessly borrowed from the ipodvision theme. Thx to JuyuJohns!

Xbox 360 Dashboard Nano Theme -- DanManners - 12 Jan 2007

TextBox by bascule

Given that some of the fantastic fonts that come with Rockbox are stuffed full of graphical glyphs, it seemed like a good idea to write a pseudo-graphical WPS using only text elements.
TextBox is the result. Using one of the standard Rockbox fonts (6x10.fnt), I designed the WPS to include as many box and icon-style characters as possible.
Because of the WPS format limitations, long tags will spill out of the right-hand side of the screen and the box border will not be visible.
This is a problem with graphical WPSs as well. This is also the reason that I have not included any scrolling tags, as this would currently ruin the left-hand side icons as well.
This will hopefully be fixed in the near future with the WPS partial scroll patch...

The top line has icons for shuffle and repeat status along with a battery indicator.
The play indicator has a single icon for all states and flashes when paused.
Below the progress bar is the playlist info Track # / Total # tracks plus the playlist name.
This is the .m3u/.m3u8 filename if you have started playlist playback from the playlist catalog or any other place in the file browser.
Volume is showing LN to indicate Line Out level (i.e., 0dB/100%)

This shows a Dynamic playlist generated by just starting playback from the File Browser or DataBase.
The fallback indications for non-existent tag metadata are also shown.

This shows the WPS when either fast-forwarding or rewinding,
when the genre tag is replaced by Track current time / Track total time to assist in cueing up within a track.

phkVH for iPod Nano

This is a theme I did in tribute to the classic "Mighty Mighty" Van Halen from the early age.

  • The Volume section has a "chicken head" vintage knob, that drives a guitar amp stack with 8 speakers. As the volume is increased, the knob rotates and the speakers goes "lighting"
  • The battery level is measured by an analog VU meter
  • A vinyl record icon indicates Memory Access
  • A locker icon for the Hold
  • Player status icons (Play/Pause/FF/Rew)
  • Shuffle mode icon
  • Repeat modes icons
  • Volume displayed in dBs
  • Battery level displayed in percentage
  • Time display
  • Current track info: Name/Artist/Album
  • Next track info: Name and Artist alternatings
  • Track position on the playlist
  • Elapsed and remaining track time (Flashs when in Pause)
  • Track properties: Format/Kbs/Constant or Variable Bitrate

Hope you enjoy ♪

AAPod Theme

aapod_theme.png aapod_menu.png

Album art is important to me, so I made one for the Nano as big as possible! Its set at 100x100 which is easily viewable on the Nano screen. You MUST use my build to use it as it needs a larger image buffer than the default one used on most builds. For updates and more information, goto

Posted by iPodFoo (Billy Blair)



This is pretty much the same theme as above except this version does not need any special patches or builds! I made it use helvB10 font (a bold version of the helvR10 font), so various other fonts can be used as well. It uses 100x100 album art (go here to find out how to extract album art from iTunes). In order for it to work with the default image buffer, I had to comment out various audio format indicators with a (#) in front of their line. If you use those audio formats and want them to show a proper audio format indicator instead of a (???) icon, uncomment them and comment out some others as the whole theme is too much to handle for the audio buffer. If you have noticed any bugs or have questions at all about this theme, you can pm me at the forums (crzyboyster).

Should work on any recent build 6/26/08.

PHK1 Remix;filename=PHK1_b.png;filename=PHK1_b.png

This theme is a rework of the already existant theme PHK1 theme for the nano. I changed the font, icons, and both bgs (wps and menus). The font being used is a new one called "Pixo" and I used it because I thought it would fit the cool, sleek, black-grey look. The icons are the tango set. Edit/modify as you see fit. Enjoy!

Menu Screen of Cabbie3 Nano WPS No AA Screen of Cabbie3 Nano WPS w/ Album Art Screen of Cabbie3 Nano

This is a port of the cabbie3 (no relation to Cabbie 2.0 here!) theme made by ZincAlloy from the ipod video version. It uses the helvR10 font and I had to align the text all the way to the top for now until viewports are committed because otherwise the theme looks "unbalanced". In order for a black menu background, you have to go to Settings > Theme Settings > Clear Backdrops. It looks exactly like the screenshots.

Menu Screen of corners WPS No AA Screen of corners WPS w/ Album Art Screen of corners

This is my first theme that I made completely by myself. It uses a special font that I converted using the RockboxFontConvertor and is called "Pixo" (included) and the icon set used is the tango iconset (also included). Uses 55x55 album art and if no album art is found, the album art box will be displayed. I am waiting for viewports conditionals so that you won't have to see the box. You can get the psd files if you want them by pming me on the rockbox forums. Enjoy!

Should work fine with any recent build.
