Title: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS*
Post by: Bruan on December 03, 2012, 01:46:53 AM
(http://i1210.photobucket.com/albums/cc407/bcooperizcool/Logo_zps10eb5d01.png)
Originally called D00r

No longer supported! Has not been updated for years. *Not compatible with whited00r 7 or iOS 7! You should use that anyway, it's much more featured pretty much ;)
Also not compatible with the newer devices that use the A5 chip. So nothing above the iPhone 5 (or maybe 4S really).

What is this? This is a project I have spent the past couple months or so working hard on to get to a stable enough point for a public release (still in beta though).
This aims to provide the basic features that whited00r/redd00r would, as well as extra features and speed improvements. Really trying to add in my own twists to it now, to further it from anything else. It is compatible with every firmware, so I will be adding in more stuff all the time for different firmwares, as well as bug fixes along the way.

Features
Folders
For your 3.1.3 device, folders are a great addition to any homescreen.

Multitasking
This is enabled when using d00r, for any device that doesn't already support it by default.

Wallpapers
Spice up your homescreen with wallpapers! :D

Ad blocker
Because really, I don't know anyone that truly thinks, "I want to look at an ad for a couple more minutes...".

Optional optimized iOS6 theme
Put your device on a diet! This theme is optional to be downloaded from my repo. It includes every stock iOS image crushed and then optimized, to get image size down considerably, hopefully reducing processing power needed to display them. This might even result in faster animations and usage of your device.  please note that this takes a bloody long time to apply, as it is every image on the device ;)

iOS6 theme
Get that iOS6 look on your decrepit old device, to at least feel young again. Sort of like Botox, without the bad side effects (like melting D: )
more images will be added :)

Theme engine
Oh look, I was nice enough to put in a cannibalized (I can never spell that word right -__-) version of Regenerate for your usage, for free!  Aren't I nice? ;) No more need for WinterBoard in most cases :) big speed boost there for you :)

UIIMage themer --- big thanks to bensge for this! :D
Oh yes, thanks to the sheer brilliance of a developer called "bensge", you can now theme UIImages without WinterBoard! This means you have complete theming capabilities when using D00r :) currently only not compatible with 3.x, but this is being looked into

Firmware faker
Yeah yeah yeah... A firmware faker -__- I put it in because some people might like it. It can't actually let you run apps not designed for your system!

GUI Configurator
Tired of typing "y" and "n" into the terminal window? Well, I fixed that for you. Now you can simply open up your settings app and enable/disable features on your device. This Configurator has many more options than any has before it (such as whited00r and redd00r), as well as better code behind it.
OTA updates
Skip Cydia completely! This will help you keep Archetype up to date :) Also on top of the default Ch40s-Utilities ota tool, I have made an addon just for Archetype. This will alert you when a new update is available and prompt you to either download it or cancel (the latter of which will put a badge on the settings app just like iOS5+) (the addon can be disabled via the Configurator)

Optimizer script
Trying to make the most of your device. This is code all done by me, designed to try and speed up your device and clean up space on it.  I will keep adding more and more to this in hopes to speed up the device even more :)

iOS6 settings layout
For the most part anyway :P This will give you something close to the iOS6 layout of the settings app.

DoNotDisturb
Ever needed a break from notifications? Well, just flip this switch, and watch as the world ends.... Wait, no, it will just disable notifications. Not end the world. Heh... heh...

Video buffer fix
Well, sort of. You can enable this in the Configurator. It will set the default resolution for videos lower than normal, thus hopefully speeding up the loading time of them. Youtube never looked so blocky! :D

D00rCloud
YAY BACKUP/RESTORE SYSTEM I MADE ALL BY MAHSELF :D 
Many thanks to realblack7's iCloud, of which I used to learn tar commands and the locations of the files needed :)

Cleaner tool
WIP tool for cleaning up the system automatically (you can turn this off though in the configurator). You can run it manually under Archetype -> Cleaner (configuring options are there too)

Did I mention this was compatible with every firmware? :P

To-Do
-Make custom backup script, sort of like iCloud I guess. App data, photos, notes, contacts, all those sort of things.
-More fixes for different firmwares, and new features.
-Font swapper for the note app
-Custom UI, already working on it slowly (I have almost no artistic/design skills ;P)
-MOAR THINGS


Please keep in mind this is still beta, and there are bound to be some issues, but I am working constantly to fix these issues, and add new features :)

Make sure you have the latest Ch40s-Utilities from my repo, some of the Configurator options won't work until you enable everything from the old configurator script from whited00r. I would NOT advise running this with redd00r...

This does work on whited00r 6 :)

Installation
3.1.3
-Download SBUtils for 3.1.3 and install it however you may want to, using iFile or iTools or otherwise. This isn't a thread about installing .debs, or even a package for newbies.
-Add the repo below and install Archetype from it.

4.x
-Add in the repo below and install Archetype from it.
-If it crashes Cydia during install, do not reboot or anything. Open cydia up right away and let it it sit for about 10+ minutes as it finishes the install. It very well may be a black screen. You will know it is doing something because the app hasn't crashed again. Answer any popups it may show, and when it either closes or shows the return the cydia button tap that and then reboot.
-iPod touch 2G will have issues with enabling multitasking due to a key for open-gles2.0 not being written to a file. It will cause repsringing on changing apps.

5.x+
-Add the repo below and install Archetype from it.
-After it finishes installing, hold the home/power buttons down at the same time until the device shuts off.
-Hold the up volume key at the same time as pressing the power button when the device is off. Let go of only the power button but keep holding the up volume button until the device turns on. It will be in a safemode of sorts that doesn't actually say it on the status bar. Do not worry about that ;)
-Using iTools or iFile or similar navigate to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and delete UIImage.dylib and then reboot the device. Reboot not respring otherwise you WILL STILL BE IN SAFEMODE.
-You should be good to go from there, although if you do OTA update before this post is updated with the next major version you will need to remove that file again.

Repo:
Sorry, no longer available. :(

Split the thread, for the old stuff please look here:
Archetype thread OLD (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,9624.0.html).
Don't post there, it is just for preservation purposes.

If you do have an issue, please post here, but make sure to include information that will help such as device, firmware, configurator settings, and any tweaks or file system mods you may have done or installed.

Also read the first post!  It has the common issues, and how to fix them. Please do not post if you have not read it, or if you are asking something that is described in the first post! ;)

I tested Archetype for 1 week i guess, ihave to say that is good, i cant say its bad xDD
it needs to be more faster like whited00r 6 but that will be hard to make because of the IOS 4.2.1, i think you guys should put the Multitasking of Archetype on Whited00r 6, i am back to whited00r 6.
Just saying keep the good work, i thing you should disable the spotlite search on archetype it makes him slow, for that i installed one deb, NoSpot, cant remember the repo sry.
so i guess its all
thanks :)

Well glad to hear you like it :)
I know it needs more work on 4.2.1, but you can really only speed that up so much :(
Multitasking was in whited00r, but it isn't anymore. :(
Spotlight isn't loaded so it can't search if you disable it in Archetype, it just still shows the page.  Using a substrate to disable it will slow you down too ;)

I've just installed Archetype in my Ipod Touch 2g, but it doens't work correctly.
After the welcome message, it stucks in the second screen, when it says: archetype, theme engine, configurator, etc. I can't press next bottom.
What can I do?

Welcome to the forums :)

You can try booting into safemode by turning off the device and then holding down the up volume key as you turn on the device until it is turned on all the way.

Now, I don't remember entirely what the command was to disable the tweak, but you can use iTools (http://itools.hk/en_index.htm) to delete /var/mobile/Archetype/Resources/Setup.dylib (or something along those lines, it's been ages since I messed with it).

Well the 4.2.1 Archetype firmware was too much of a slowdown, so i tried uninstalling it using cydia. Now it won't boot up. The apple logo just hangs and the spinning wheel is frozen. Any solutions?

You did not provide enough info.. If cydia crashed during install then that is the cause of the slowdown and spinning wheel of death. If it haven't crashed, then bcooperizcool broke his uninstall script :/

It may be because I don't include a preference file so it disabled them by default. So enabling them would have fixed it :)

You should put the *default* key to *true* in your important configurator.plist switch to avoid that kind of problems :)

Funny thing is that technically the values for the advanced stuff isn't written to file until it is toggled.  The way the configurator works, it won't even run the code to mess with it if there is no value for it.
Yes, I should, but I had other plans for it down the road that didn't include that ;)

Hi, I just installed Archetype and I am having a few problems.

1. When I change the theme to "iOS 6", it resprings, but when i go back to settings its goes back to "none".
2. When I go to the App Store, when I click on a app, it loads and loads but nothing comes up.
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Bruan on August 25, 2013, 08:09:01 PM
Welcome to the forums :)

1. That is normal because of how Ch40s-Launcher works, don't worry about it. The theme is applied :)
2. Try enabling App Update Checks under the configurator and applying settings and I think that may fix that issue :)
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Taz on August 25, 2013, 08:16:27 PM
Thanks :D,

Okay, so to apply the settings, I have to click finish, and then click apply? Its still not working.

Also, under configuration, do I have to enable any of the settings there? Such as multitasking? Cause all of it its off but multitasking still works.
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Taz on August 25, 2013, 08:21:35 PM
Also, how can I make the firmware faker say its ios 5 or 6?

Yes, turn everything on.  If it doesn't apply, close out of the settings app, and make sure it is closed out of multitasking too. Then open it up again, and right away go to the Configurator and press Apply.

As for the firmware faker, it won't actually let you use stuff that requires a higher firmware, or even show up in the settings app.  It's an internal change that is only really there for show.

Post by: mamajoker on August 29, 2013, 01:35:19 PM
this is probably a dumb question, but does archetype allow you to download apps that require a higher ios than 4.2.1? or is it just for themes and tweaks
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: AnimateDread on August 29, 2013, 03:31:49 PM
It only gives custom features, no complex frameworks port (probably will never happens), so no, no higher firmware apps/tweaks/themes

Post by: mkwhater on August 31, 2013, 10:02:23 PM
hi how would you uninstall this is it as simple as uninstalling from cydia also if you mess up booting into the 'safemode' i.e boots normally when installing, does it matter can you just turn off and try again
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Bruan on August 31, 2013, 10:32:28 PM
What device and iOS did you install it on, and did it crash during install or did you close it before you saw the respring/return to cydia button?  If not, then you can simply remove of via cydoa, making sure to do the same as you did for install and just leave it ;)   if it boots up normally its no worry.

Welcome to the forums :)

Where did you put the theme folder?   Also, when pressing the update theme listing option, did you wait for the popup and the device to respring?

So the device resprung itself, or did you manually do it?  Because it should have done it itself :o

I don't remember, but I think Archetype might require the folder to be exactly /var/stash/Themes (not Themes.***** ).

Post by: fatcat1413 on September 21, 2013, 07:09:20 PM

This is either due to ch40s-launcher being locked or an error in the script, try to reboot your device :/

What he said ;) Ch40s-Launcher is slower on older devices. I have a new version of Archetype that uses obj-c, but I can't release it yet ;) 

You have to choose the option within 2 minutes of opening the settings app, and then wait up to a minute for it to execute.  (I know, I know it is slow, but it is done entirely out of shell in a bloody brilliant way ;) )

Did you disable it from the settings? :o

Try opening up terminal and typing in
su
alpine
Ch40s-Launcher -c Kickstart  (may be KickStart)

And then opening up the settings app and going to the page right away and selecting it (may already be selected, just select it again ;) )

Welcome to the forums :)

I didn't make the jailbreak, but I think you mean a custom firmware thing for 4.x?  Either way I will help you if you have issues with this to the best of my ability :)

Great job Brian, the layout is interesting, the flexibility of the settings are a good thing, the configurator allow for absolutely complete control over the device`s features. The intro features overview is also profesionnal and fluid, I like that.

Keep up the great work and thanks for your free products.

EDIT: the online dropbox is also bloody brilliant, while keeping in mind this is done without API, all in shell :)

So Archetype WAS installing, but it went back to my homescreen. I started Cydia back up, and other than the buttons at the bottom and blue bar at the top, the screen is black. It asked me to delete language packs again, so I assume the download simply restarted after cydia closed (crashed?) ?

EDIT: After a 'Thanks to' window, it's now just normal cydia.

EDIT 2: After closing and re-opening cydia, cydia opens to a blank screen.


Whoops. After looking in my settings, it seems Archetype installed. After a respring, the introduction played. Thanks a bunch, my iPod doesn't seem like a hunk of junk anymore.

Just an update, my iPod is definitely running nicer than it did, and multitasking is a definite nice extra.

I know Ch4os Launcher says not to mess with it unless you know what you're doing, but am I going to get any significant performance boost out of messing with it?

You will get more speed and less lag spikes relating to the settings app if you put the run times down, and the wait between up a little more.

basically, whenever you open the settings app, it starts up a backend program that looks to see if any of the options relating to Archetype have changed, and if so, it runs the relevant script (bloody complex, but it works. Next update will not use it).

So, even if you don't change anything relating to it, it still runs anyway because otherwise it can't intercept when something has been changed.

It runs through the loop of things to check a number of times (the run times), and after each loop, it waits a specified amount of time before looping again (the wait between). After it finishes all that, it shuts down and doesn't start again until the settings app has been opened again.  Now, after it shuts down, none of the options in Archetype related stuff will execute/change until you reopen the settings app.

Hope that explains it a little bit more :)

No idea sadly, I have a lot on my plate, and Archetype is just a hobby.  I need to make an income now, as well as program for the next whited00r version.

Updates should come when you have internet connection, although the next update probably will require a re-install because it changes how everything works.

I wouldn't use this with that...  Just as a precaution as things may go very very bad and make you need to restore.

That's probably no where as complex as Archetype, and doesn't have the same dependencies either.

And not as good as Archetype.
Any packages/firmware that are NOT listed here arent't reliable.

-Whited00r(by whited00r team)

-Archetype(by bcooperizcool)

-Resurrection(by me: revivaldev)

Anything else are only a bunch of cydia tweaks put togheter without explicit permission of the tweaks respective developers, therefore breaking rules of the Cydia community and disrespecting the hard work of a developer.
Utilisation of such mods are higly NOT recommended because they are slow/unstable/not reliable and doesn't allow you to customize your device easily.

Well. if you want iOS 7 looks. I would recommend looking in the Amateur Developer Section (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/board,78.0.html) on this forum.
There are many iOS 7 Themes created by the community.

Here are some examples:
The Ultimate iOS7 Theme Team (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,9136.0.html)

It may need to be literally /var/stash/Themes, not /var/stash/Themes.randomtext (replace random text with a string of numbers/letters).

put the downloaded ios7 theme

but no theme at theme engine
only linen-ey and ios 6
what did i do wrong?
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Bruan on October 03, 2013, 05:17:05 PM
Well there already should have been a /var/stash/Themes for linen-ey and iOS 6 to show up.  It may be /Library/Themes (although I thought I symlinked that... ah well).

Also, it is case sensitive too.

Do the linen-ey and iOS 6 themes show up in /var/stash/Themes?  If not, check /Library/Themes.  If they are in there, then put the iOS 7 theme in there instead and re-update the GUI.

Linen-ey doesn't do anything really. It's not a complete theme and relied on something that was iOS 5+ only (for now. Just something I was playing around with really).

sbutils shouldn't update, it shows there is one, but the update isn't compatible with 3.1.3 (from what I know at any rate).  Aside from that, all is correct and after installing Archetype you should be able to use the theme engine for the iOS 7 theme :)

It is laggy only since you installed Archetype?

Have you enabled some features in Archetype's configurator? like auto cleaner, auto updates, homescreen wallpaper and multitasking? These are resources hungry :(

You can also check PowerControl (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=8204.0)

And use the overclocker/optimized profile when you are gaming to boost your fps.

Did it give any errors when installing after the crash/reopen?   It is completely removable via cydia too, so you didn't need to restore :(

The error is :

Database

X dpkg was interrupted. you must manually run 'dpkg -configure -a' to correct the problem.

I let the installation happen until the final thanks popup, then I click the "return to cydia" popup and then it resprings.

When I run it using Terminal (as root), it says "unknown option -o", even if I just run dpkg -configure.
The error happens when I select "abort" when it asks if I want to delete languages, since my iPod is french. It asks it again after relaunching cydia.

Oh, --configure has two -. Well, it didn't output anything.

Yes, of course. And toggling shadows or multitasking does not work, as an example. They are enabled on the on and off settings.

Whatever the default position is for a switch, it won't keep that.  You have to toggle it on/off the first time around you use it for the value to be written to the file (only the first time!).

The shadows and multitasking *may* be broken on iOS 4, but it should work, just not correctly for the iPod touch 2G (using multitasking to switch appswill crash springboard and you will respring).

"capricious" is a really obscure word to use BTW, I understand what you mean, but it's not commonly used (well, at least not that I have seen).

Yes though, it is quite a tricky little thing isn't it? ;)  It disables for me sometimes, but sometimes not :P  Pretty sure I have it working on my brother's iPod touch 2G, but that's running an old version of D00r. (Never had a chance to update it to Archetype).

Will Archetype be available soon for iOS 7? Because i am using it on my iPhone 3G and it is two words: Deli-cious! So when the jailbreak comes out, you have to be prepared that you make Archetype iOS 7 ready!

Have you carefully followed the instruction for installation at the first post?
have you installed cydia tweaks/mods/themes after Archetype?
Have you touched Archetype's advanced configurator?

And also iOS 4 possibly could be a problem, and Archetype have some issues on that firmware (although I might be wrong)
Archetype comes with a couple of awesome features, but enabling too much on such a resources hungry os AND on a bad hardware device can and probably will causes issues.

Yeah, just make sure you read the install instructions in the first post to know what to do if errors happen during the install.

On what iOS version?

Hard Reset often solve many problems: hold both Home & Power buttons until the Apple logo appears and let go of the buttons & smell the roses while it is doing it's thing.

No worries, hard reset will not change any of your info, tweaks & apps on the device.

Uhhh, do another hard reset, and as soon as you see the apple logo, hold the volume + button until you see the lockscreen, however, if after one minute you are still in a respring loop, you have to restore with iTunes :(

Please report if the volume button trick worked, so the developer doesn't loose time searching for an error that doesn't exists.

Otherwise,
This would be an error in the uninstall script of Archetype, I have frequent relation with the developer and I will make sure he have a look (although he will for sure see this message without me)

So, note to you bcooperizcool:

LOOK AT PRERM/POSTRM

Eh the script is fine, it has been for however many months this has been up ;)  The only problems occur when people don't read the install instructions or jump ahead and don't let it complete the install.  It's very very intricate as to how it handles installs/uninstalls. When installed correctly, it will uninstall correctly every time :)

Unless there was something else on the system, such as installing it on a custom 4.2.1 firmware instead of stock iOS, or something else of the like by having installed a tweak that wasn't compatible or deleting files on the system that related to archetype :(

Hi I'm fairly new to this forum and I've only just started using whited00r and thought I should give this a try too. So I apologize for this newb question :P

How exactly do I use this? >.< I got it installed but I dont know how to apply the settings, or the pop up just comes out too late that I don't know if something is exactly happening lol.

Also how do I use configurator? Seems like turning on features actually turn them off. Really confused, would appreciate a newbie guide for this hehe.

Can anyone help enlighten me abit? Thanks ! :)

Did it crash during install or anything?

Anyways, the configurator doesn't have any values set by default. What I would advise doing it toggling everything on/off once the first time around after install to set a value in the file (only need to do that once).  After that it should work fine :)

Keep in mind that it uses a backend launcher to execute code, so after about 2 minutes of the settings app being opened, the launcher will stop checking for changes (memory management of sorts), so you have to close and then re-open the settings app (make sure it wasn't backgrounded!) and then apply the settings :)

I created account just to warn people to not try this if you don't have access to a computer to restore. I installed this on a freshly jailbroken iPod Touch 2G MC iOS 4.2.1, found out I didn't like it and rather just enable an disable what I wanted manually so I went to uninstall. I got no errors during install or during uninstall, until I pressed the restart springboard button and I was thrown into a respring loop. I do a hard reset and it just shuts off within 10 min of turning on, if I try entering safe mode it makes it to the greenpois0n logo but then the spinner shows up and spins for a while until it freezes.

I've been jailbreaking since my first iPod Touch on 1.1.1 so I know what I'm doing. Clearly the postrm script is poorly written. Just a warning to others to stay away if for whatever reason do not always have a computer to restore their device like me. Ill be heading to the apple store in the morning to restore and rejailbreak!

If it crashed during install, it won't uninstall properly and will cause the respring loop you encounter.

That really shouldn't have happened. :(  The script hasn't been changed for over half a year (or the entire package mind you), and you (and people who didn't follow the install instructions, not saying you haven't because I don't know yet ;) ) haven't had any issues. I would call that pretty stable and well written. Every iOS and firmware just works, when following the instructions.   The postrm script is just part of it. To work correctly, it should have completed the postinst script on install (if it crashed, you should have opened it back up again and let it sit at the black screen until the install completed. It does take a long time - lots and lots of stuff in there).

Anyway, did you install anything during the time it was installed?  Or at the same time as installing it (although that shouldn't have caused it, it may give insight as to why it broke for you).

Welcome to the forums :)

Yes, you can install it, but follow the instructions in the first post!
This just like whited00r and anything else, will not let you install the latest versions of apps or make your device run a higher firmware. That is impossible. :(  However, you can already install apps from the appstore, as it will give you the last compatible version for your firmware.  The apps won't work if the server side has been updated and no longer works with older versions, but it's as good as you can get :(

Some point possibly. However, just using a theme in Cydia would do that for you. Any tweaks or the like to modify the look for a higher firmware would be paid. Archetype is just a hobby project not aimed at giving the features of another iOS version entirely.  More just to push me to develop new things and learn more.

The 5S wouldn't be compatible with Archetype at all :(  I need to update the listing. It says every iOS but it isn't anymore as iOS 7 was released :P  Right now Archetype is pretty nice and stable thankfully :) (on what it runs on).

I should do more work on it though, but I don't have much free time anymore :(
It's ok :( you already worked hard for us and you do every possible efforts :) I promise if I manage to get money I'll donate for you a bit because you really deserve for your work :( without you, our old devices would just be that, OLD. THANK YOU SO MUCH :)

Oh but it's never been about having it out there, it was about me stretching what I can do and learning :)  I'm doing that more so now, but it's in obj-c and in stuff that I really should be paid to do ;)  So I'm doing that, and releasing stuff in Cydia.  If I do ever have time I'm sure I'll pick this up again though :)

I think this project is more than what you think, people like to customize their devices easily :p right now this is the only project that supports any armv7 devices(resurrection is gone from the net :p)

I think it really worth some attention, and instead of working on my own for something "such" I'm offering you my help.
It's not like we don't know each other, we code together since a year now ;D

Just a proposal mate, 2 heads are better than one.

The configurator in Whited00r 7 is better than the one in this as of now anyway ;) Sure it doesn't support all the iOS versions, but GUI wise and even some backend code, it's better.

In the state it's in, it's not even fully put together, and only I can put it up to what it needs to be to be worked on by other people, as part of the stuff is only in my head right now too ;) I don't have the time right now to even fix it up and finish the update for it that's been sitting for months :(

Glad you like it! :)
I think this enables the option under Settings -> General -> Usage for that :o  BTW, this is kinda old and using my old hackey backend launcher I made before I learned obj-c...  So a little slower to execute stuff and not as fancy :(  Also, I wouldn't use this with WD7 by the way... Or iOS 7 either :p

Eh, after many failed attempts with downgrading my iPod to 3.1.3, I'm fine with archetype. :P Springboard and safari may be a bit slow, but I'm fine.

I will admit I did have to go exploring in ifile a bit to fix multitasking, as it needed opringles-2 in there as well or else the iPod resprings into safe mode, but besides that, I didn't have to mess with a thing so far! ;)
(However, I think I need to poke around with ifile again if I want a battery percentage, there is no usage tab there if I click general.)
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS
Post by: Bruan on April 16, 2014, 05:27:31 AM
Oh, wonder why it failed downgrading :o  Anyway, yeah iOS 4 is kind of slow, but usable.  You could also have tried out ressurection, by revialdev, as that uses an obj-c frontend so no backend launcher needed :) 

Ah I know, I forgot to put that one in for enabling it properly, sorry about that :(
Oh, battery percentage is easy enough, it has to do with the gas-gauge-battery key in the system plist of features.

Maybe in the first post I will, in the package, not so much.  I haven't updated this for nearly a year, although I do have some partly done upgrades somewhere, which converts it to obj-c and a couple other things.  I pretty much got caught up in helping out with all the whited00r things (Whited00r Settings is a super advanced configurator, basically what I had in mind for archetype in the long run, although now it won't get it because whited00r has it :P ), so I never had a chance to finish up that.  Now I have to do things like an adult and don't have much free time to work on things like archetype :(  It was really only ever a project designed to push what I could do in my learning, which it did.  Now my pushing my learning is in obj-c, and I can make tweaks and design things and such, and actually sell that stuff (which I sadly have to do).  Maybe someday I will get the motivation to work more on archetype, but not in the near future that I can see :(

Ah!  Well there you go!  Not sure why it didn't fix it by just adding that key in, as it should have bypassed the whole need for the editing of the General.plist to get the usage.  Maybe you edited the wrong system plist (were there other files like the N72AP and such?), I know whited00r at least has several of those :s

Well, I did have the right file and it was edited correctly, but maybe I had to edit general.plist to make the usage tab pop up, which in turn made the battery percent option pop up. :S

Perhaps there was a preference option that had to be enabled as well.  Either way, it is solved now :)

I have considered it, and even toyed with the possibility of re-writing it for obj-c only for the actual theme applying part, but I just haven't had the time free to do so :(
The UIImage themer was something a friend made and only works on iOS 5 or iOS 6.

What device, and what iOS version?  Did you have any other custom firmwares installed at the same time?  Also, during install, did you follow the instructions to let it sit while it installed? Because without that, you would have broken the install which is crucial to the uninstall code...

Ah that's the one where it crashes on install and requires you to open up cydia again right away to finish the install. If that wasn't done, that could explain the issues with the uninstall.

Sorry about that :(

What sort of theme? UIImages will not apply, so if that is all the theme has, it won't do anything.
Also, did the screen just auto lock, or did it actually respring the device?

It should be, but I may have done it wrong :(

The repo error I really don't know, I'm actually only a little bit away from taking down all my old projects anyway, as I can't really provide support and they are a year or more out of updates.   Double check the name and network connection, and try again I would say.

Cycorder is included though :)  (pretty sure, I really don't know as it has been ages since I have messed with this)

Oh, it probably just autolocked then :(  Try again, but make sure the screen stays on all the time by either setting Settings -> General -> Autolock to "Never" or else tapping the screen periodically to prevent it from locking/sleeping while it is applying the theme.  Eventually, it will respring on its own and show the little spinning circle in the middle of the screen then show the lockscreen.

Ah that is not normal.  Check /var/stash/Themes on the device and see if there are actually any image files within the iOS 6 theme folder there.
You should be able to run the following code in terminal to achieve that result:
Code: [Select]
find /var/stash/Themes/iOS*

Or something like that, or just go poking around with iFile or similar ;)

It may be called something different, Cydia seems to give the themes folder a random extension :/  Possibly Themes.XFOUADFS or something (random example of what it would look like).

Did you install the iOS 6 theme from the repository?  On install the theme is already applied mind you....  That's why the install takes so long.  (you are following the instructions on the first page right, for when it crashes during install in Cydia?)

Not on all iOS versions ;)  Some of them yes, some of them no.  I'm pretty sure it is in the package file though.  Then again, as I said, it has been ages since I have messed around with this :P

Not enough time to continue on working on so much for free, and it also used only shell, which I have moved past a long time ago. It was only ever meant to be a learning thing for me, to try and push what I could do with what I knew.  Now I'm on to helping out whited00r with their firmwares, and also working part time and teaching myself programming, as well as picking up various other skills.

Just no free time really though! :(

I'm happy I was able to inspire many people into programming with this and similar sorts of projects, and set a sort of standard for what could be done even without knowing obj-c in custom firmwares, but times move on as have I with learning ;)

I notice that while installation was in progress the log was contained (oops, we have some error, or something) message.

Any suggestions how to fix this? Will provide any technical data with the bit of explanation of how to get it.

Yep any device running (an updated) mobile substrate has that. Apart from the iTouch 1G where you are supposed to use a headset clicker button...

I made a mistake, forgot to delete certain .dll from the start. However, thanks for help.

Cheers!

Not sure what your original issue was without getting the specifics from the error log on install/removal/upgrade (there are several different error handling bits of code there that give different outputs).

It seems you have fixed the issue though, so hopefully you don't run into any others! :)

I've forgot about .dll operation. That's it. No problem at all from the start, just my mistake in operational procedures.

Well I was having archetype on my machine first then I delete it for some reason I forgot and then I was interested to test and see it again, but by the time I re-install it through cydia I forgot that it required to remove certain .dll through file manager (I used iTools) in order to it to work on iOS 5 and confused with thinking that my ipad is freezed because there where errors while installation. Apparently that is not the case and...

After restoring machine and installing archetype again I was having exact issue with boot logo, so I suppose I just need to do the job with removing .dll which I did and it works.

Oh! The .dylib/substrate for the UIImageThemer thing (.dll is a windows thing which is why I was confused).  Yeah, that would do it.  You could have booted to safemode though via the volume up method I think, so keep that in mind if you have issues like that again :)  (well, specifically that issue :p )

I don't want to be meh but Resurrection would be so much simpler and less buggy :p

(not to be mean, Bruan is a good friend of mine and I admire his work :) but he simply stopped working on this kind of stuff because he need to move onto professionnal stuff (he is an adult mind you.) From what I know if he pick this up again it should be in a very long time :p

This ^^ Unless you really needed something from Archetype, I wouldn't use it even myself :p  For 3.1.3, whited00r is the best option, and for anything else go with revivaldev's Resurrection :)  (now....  that being said, there be rumors of a new project for iOS 5 devices... Semi-announced, but nothing more on that)

First of all, nice work, Bruan!

And now, I would be grateful if you lend me some help. The thing is, I'm using WD7.1 now, and judging for that message: ("*Not compatible with whited00r 7 or iOS 7!"), I'm assuming that I have to unninstall WD, before I install Archetype, am I right?

But I just can't unninstall it propperly. I try to put it back to 4.2.1 like I've been told, but it's no use, I have some problems, and I'm forced to install WD again, downgrading it to 3.1.2, using IReb and Blackra1n.

Can you please tell me what to do? Thanks on advance  :D

(Mine it's a 3G, with WD7.1, 3.1.3 firmware, and a bugged sleep button)

Welcome to the forums :)

Oh gosh, I wouldn't use this instead of Whited00r 7!  Whited00r 7 is much more stable, clean and powerful.  (I should know, having coded most of it)
Archetype uses old knowledge I had years ago, I haven't updated it since because it was just something I did to channel my learning in programming. Now I don't have much free time to do that :/   Even if I did, it would end up being quite similar to whited00r and there isn't really a need for that.  Maybe for higher firmwares, but even then,  I never really wanted it to mimic higher iOS versions, but just be something for me to play around with and build experimental things in.
However, I do that with whited00r beta testing now, and other things like tweaks in Cydia (although not released yet though :p ).

There's something in Archetype that made me really interested. The fake firmware version thing. It would be very convenient to me, to have Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger.

That wouldn't do anything unfortunately as apps that require ios 4+ use different binaries than what ARM-V6 can handle meaning that the apps would install but instantly crash :(
So its not really possible for facebook messenger but you could try 50% Solved WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update! (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.0.html)

Firmware faker is just that. It fakes the firmware. It does not make apps that require a higher firmware work on older firmwares, as there is no way to do that.

So it's like the tricks that I've already tried  :( Sad. I feel like the only person these days that don't have Whatapp, but it's ok, it's not that important. So I rather stay with WD7.1. Thanks for the help  ;)

That's what happens as technology moves forward, older devices become obsolete and no longer are supported :(  If it makes you feel any better, I don't have whatsapp either  ;)

Hello :) I have a few questions ^^

I have an iPhone 3GS, so Archetype is compatible with my device, right?
Do I have to jailbreak my iPhone for this?
Lastly (and most importantly), is there a way to install Archetype with a broken power button?

Thanks!

Yes, it is compatible, although I wouldn't really use it to be honest...  It isn't exactly current with feature set, and wasn't when it came out :(  (compared to what can be done).  Mostly wouldn't use it because it hasn't been updated/maintained in over a year now.

If you do still want to install it, you will need a jailbroken iPhone, and just follow the instructions on the first post relating to the iOS version you are using. Power button shouldn't be too much of an issue, unless you don't actually delete the UI tweak before you restring the device... Otherwise you may end up in a respring loop (although holding the volume down button down while booting up will get you past that).

That has not been in development for even longer, well, kind of on and off I suppose. At the moment Archetype is better than that by a long shot.  However, I don't know if anything will come from the new development on redd00r that the twitter account announced recently.

Hello everyone ! I'm new on the forum ! :D
So ... i've some questions ...

1. Is Archetype or Resurrection usefull for a iPhone 3GS with iOS 6.1.6 ?
2. If Archetype useless, can I uninstall it with cydia without any issues ?
3. Can I see the changelog of Archetype ?

I hope I get a answer !  :)
Title: Re: Archetype -- Custom firmware package for every iOS*
Post by: iTechy21 on January 27, 2015, 05:15:23 PM
1. I don't think it's supports iOS 6
2. Read post number 1 for the install instructions and it should uninstall with no problems
3. I don't know if there is a changelog :P

It does support iOS 6, and that is the limit of the support. Pretty outdated though, and no support/development for over a year or so now.

Hey Guys,
This may be some sort of a noobie post but here it is anyway.
How do I actually install this? Do I just remove the whited00r repo and add the Archetype repo? Because I did that and it installed a bunch of stuff but when I go to 'Settings' it still says 'whited00r settings' So I'm not sure if I installed Archetype properly or I just failed miserably.
Thanks for reading

This is so very much outdated. Whited00r 7 is pretty much the updated version of this for 3.1.3 devices in terms of what this offered. (only thing it doesn't offer is the theming script which isn't really that good anyway).
All the features of whited00r 7 are much more stable and refined than this.

Nope, nothing can make apps that require higher firmwares work on older ones, or give your device higher firmwares than what apple allows :(

I wouldn't bother using this. It hasn't been supported for a couple years now, it's just here for the sake of history pretty much.
