Extract Leopard UI Files

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The moment all us graphical junkies have all been waiting for has arrived! These tools decrypt the images in the SArtFile.bin file letting you edit them. There is also a tool to repack these.

 

(Note: I did not create these utilities and am not taking any credit for them) Thanks to asap18/longhorn49 for this wonderful program :)

 

Tools (Download at end of post):

 

artDecoder.jar ===> Decodes the bin file

artEncoder.jar ===> Encodes the bin file

 

Instructions:

 

1. Navigate to /System/Library/PublicFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Resources

 

2. Backup the SArtFile.bin file and copy one to the artTools folder

 

3. Open a Terminal session and "cd" to the directory of the jar files and the SArtFile.bin you recently copied over there.

 

4. Type the code below

java-jar artDecoder.jar SArtFile.bin artfiles/

 

5. If all goes well you should see a directory called artfiles in the artTools directory. There are the images you can edit to your heart's content.

 

6. Once editing is done open up another Terminal session and "cd" back to that directory.

 

7. Type the code below

java -jar artfiles/ SArtFile.bin SArtFile.new.bin

 

8. A file named SArtNew.bin should have been created. The file size should be around 1.5-2.5 MB. If not, then you did something incorrectly.

 

9. Done, you may replace the files, logout and then in and test your skin! :)

Now all we need is an actual app and not a command-line-tool and there'll be a load of grinning terminal-unfriendly modders out there.

ok what do i do once i get the artfiles directory open. I followed all the way to step 5 so now comes editing the images. But what do i do with them? Do i open any of the images into photoshop and then edit it and re-save it again? Or do i move the file somewhere else? Or am i missing something completely? Because i'm trying to make the toolbar pure white with pink lettering and a pink apple.

 

This is where i am so far

Ok...so I'm totally new to editing it for myself...I get everything but what do you mean by "cd" the directory?

 

"cd" is the command to change the working directory at the Unix command line. eg. to change to your Desktop you would type this in Terminal.app:

 

cd ~/Desktop

 

(that's a tilde, btw, not a hyphen) and press <return>. afterward, if you typed:

 

pwd

 

and hit <return> you would get the following output:

 

Users/YOUR_USER_NAME_HERE/Desktop

 

which tells you your working directory (pwd=print working directory)

 

this might help for navigating the command line: http://www.ss64.com/osx/
