Introducing the iCube


~~NOTE! Version 1.0 is currently only tested and confirmed on the HTC/Sprint Touch.~~

I'm very happy to present the custom cube skin dreamt up and created by Musicman247 and myself…the iCube. Inspired by the user interface of the iPhone while understanding the small size of the Touch, the iCube interface blends both together to form a unique “cube” skin that is both aesthetically and functionally pleasing.

Through modifications to the TouchFlo Cube made by Musicman247 the iCube utilizes a 4 line by 3 column format of icons and “4th Wall” for its launchers. This format provides slightly larger, more finger friendly icons than standard iPhone interfaces while at the same time providing a greater number of shortcuts than a standard 6-sided cube or Music’s original 8-icon cube mod. The use of a “chalkboard” icon set furthers the effort to give the iCube its own personality while the “flush” animation used for exiting/opening and shifting the cube gives homage to the iCube’s inspiration.

This is an example of the iCube’s “flush” animations and the full cube in action.

Cube Rotation


Up/Down


Button Press


Currently release 1.0, which should be out within the next few days, will feature a “stock” launcher as the “4th” wall, with each icon connecting to a stock HTC program. The second application launcher, the Custom Launcher, will be able to be edited using registry edits, as will the Media Launcher page. It will also feature the skinned Media and Contacts pages.

We will continue work on the iCube in coming weeks to make it more feature rich and user friendly. We currently have a wide range of ideas so definitely stay tuned for updates.

Finally, major thanks to Musicman247 who is truly the mind behind the iCube’s programming and creation. If not for his talents this would’ve never been more than a wild idea kicking through my mind. Huge props goes out to him.

We hope you all enjoy, feel free to ask any questions you have.

Windows Mobile 6 Theme - iCube Carbon (working version coming soon)




Blank iCube Icon Set v1
I'm going to be trying to get someone with photoshop to touch these up and get them looking a bit sharper. However, been getting a lot of requests for them so I figured I'd put this up. You can use these icons as a background, and place other icons on top if you'd like to keep to the "theme" of the iCube.

The Cab Is Here!

iCube

by Musicman247 and Zyphlin

Please un-install any other Cube modifications you may have.

Edit 05-21-2008: iCube.zip is for all newer 3.## ROMs

Edit 12-16-2007: iCube on GSM Touch is now a reality! Simply follow these instructions:

Please manually install the "Files4GSM" into your Windows Directory. I find that Total Commander works well.

Then install the iCube.cab found here in this post.

WARNING! THIS (IF DONE CORRECTLY) WILL REPLACE APLauncher.exe, Biotouch.exe, and MediaHubMini with updated versions and add CustAPLauncher.exe Enjoy!

This must be installed to the device, so make sure you have around 9MB free.

These are also the install instructions for the TyTN II.


Edit 12-12-2007: Please re-install. A number of errors have arisen. I have re-posted the CAB with the fixes.

Edit 12-11-2007:Version 1.10 is now up. This includes the previous bug fixes, plus adds the ability to change your icons on the 4th side through registry edits. This also allows the icon "blink animation" on the fourth side. BIG thanks to Kona_Mtbkr for making this possible! No un-install needed before installing this version

Edit 12-10-2007: Version 1.01 is up. This fixes the bug where the File Explorer button would not work. you will find it attached to this post. You do not need to un-install the previous version before installing V1.01

In this CAB:

QuickDial has been skinned to match the theme.

Media Hub
1. Windows Media
2. Sprint TV
3. YouTube

App Launcher
1. Slide2Unlock Pro.....File Explorer.....Programs Menu
2. AccuWeather.........YouTube.........Clock
3. MS Money 2006......Calculator.......SMS
4. IM........................Pocket IE.......Windows Media

2nd App Launcher
1. Comm Manager........Calendar...........Tasks
2. Word Mobile............Excel Mobile.......Notes
3. Camera..................Camera Album....Live Search (updated version)
4. Mail.......................Pocket IE..........Windows Media


Here are the programs needed to make every button work as well as where you can download them (Install them to your device):

Slide2Unlock Pro: http://slide2unlockpro.spaces.live.com/

MS Money 2006 for Mobile: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

Here are the registry values and folders for the iCUbe:

HKLM>Software>HTC>Biotouch>CustAPLauncher>App0-App11 to change button settings on the 4th side.

HKLM>Software>HTC>Biotouch>APLauncher>App0-App11 to change button settings on the 3rd side.

Icons are found in: \My Documents\iCube\Icons

Animations are found in: \My Documents\iCube\Anim

Have fun!

Edit: Icon pack is now up. All of these icons are already installed in the \My Documents\iCube\Icons directory, but I figured you'd like your own shot at them. Here they are, all 34 of them in BMP format, including a carbon fiber background so you can change the bottom icons as well.

here is a list of all icons included with the iCube CAB (no extra install needed, they're already there!). These are their acutal names, just add .brn after them, and _HL.brn for the highlighted versions. You'll also find the "hub" icons in there as well.

1. beam
2. calc
3. calendar
4. camera
5. clock
6. delete
7. dice
8. disc
9. discdown
10. excel
11. im
12. ipod
13. light
14. lock
15. mail
16. maps
17. money
18. nes
19. pages
20. pencil
21. phone
22. photos
23. reel
24. safari
25. search
26. settings
27. sms

Looks good. I'd replace my cube with this one. It would be so handy not having to go into the programs menu for anything and just be able to use the cube.

This will be the place where the CAB will be uploaded, though.
Will this work for the Bell Touch as well?
