Quick summary for both:

2. Edit colour-settings.js, backgrounds .dds and particle colours/ proc_iridescent.tga to your satisfaction
3. Copy all new editions with hex editor to your lines and compress with simplyzip
4. Insert lines.zlp 8 byte hex start/PAL lines.zlp 8 byte hex start with hex editor
5. Copy to your dev_flash with multiman's file manager
The colour is measured in Red Green Blue (RGB) format. The way the values work for each is similar but not the same. I use simple maths to get more colours like this
First go here http://www.december.com/html/spec/colorper.html this will show the RGB colour as a percenatge.
The value of 3.0 = 100%
So for the colour truepurple rgb(60%, 0%, 60%)
The values would be
The background colours night-**.dds are the original colours which change every month. They are also the colours when the PS3 starts-up (coldboot), so change the current month to change the coldboot background.
The background colours rgb-**.dds are the selection colours in theme settings. You can use this to have a variety of backgrounds/patterns to suit your coloured wave.
As always have fun and enjoy :biggrin:!!

Added the pack to rapidshare now man. Here is a link to the rasta wave though it's unfinished https://rapidshare.com/files/1349617249/lines.qrc and can't be used on PAL machines.
Well for some reason I have problems with the original files and after I use those files, I have to reinstall my CFW. But don't worry all the files are well and I have the solution for my situation. If anyone have this problem only have to re-edit with winhex or using another hexeditor the "lines.qrc" and replace the first 16 bytes.
From this :
5152 4343 0086 B920
Change it to look like this :
5152 4343 0008 7980
and save the file :)
After change those values any file/ wave from the pack will be working like a charm.
Thanks Glowball.... I'm using right now your "Rasta" wave edition is very cool :)
i have customized the coloured rebug coldboot with the red scorpion, to fit glowballs nice BumbleBee wave. i have just changed the red colour to yellow, but i think it is an awesome combination and i love it...
