Just use the bundles as you don't really need the other stuff in that download. Unless, of course, you do then yeah, it would make sense to utilize the whole download.

If you want, then you can combine several aspects into one theme like signal/wifi, carrier icons, etc. I like to keep all themes as separate as possible so I actually have separate themes for folder backgrounds, signal/wifi, lockscreen and springboard widgets as well as icons. This way you have the freedom to mix and match as opposed to choosing one over the other.

Has anyone seen a messages/bitesms icon that looks kind of like the iRealSMS icon. There's SMS/MMS in the background of the button. It's green. That's all I got lol.

Makes perfect sense now. One final question - if I take the bundles from that theme, do I need to put the bundles folder within another folder which I will rename "icons" in order to put it on the phone? I assume you can't just drop the bundles folder by itself into the themes folder via ssh?

You are correct. Take the bundles folder and put it in another folder and then label it "icons.theme" or something like that. Make sure the ".theme" is at the end. Then SSH it into your themes folder on your phone and you're good to go. Depending on what you're using, as far as other themes or widgets, you may need to put the icons theme at the top of Winterboard.

So how can I merge features (lock screen) from one theme into another.

Example, I love this theme (dBar Green Days) because it has the clear folders and no blacking out when you open a folder. But I like the lock screen from (dBar Antisoma).

Thanks for anyone willing to help!

If you want just the clear folders from GreenDays then you can download Transparent Folder Icons from Cydia to accomplish this. There are a couple different variations of the clear folders in Cydia. One will have a border around the folder and clear wallpaper. The other will look completely clear with no border or wallpaper.

If you have this then you can install the Antisoma lockscreen and have both features you're looking for.

True and I already have that. But the docked folders retain a gray background. I'll keep playing around and see if I figure it out.

One workaround (while you research) is to create an Icons folder under your theme folder and put two files per app in there named :

AppName.png
AppName@2x.png

where AppName is copied exactly from the name of the app on the springboard.

This is for iPhone 4, Summerboard (setting in WinterBoard) needs to be ON for this to work

If so, details please, iphone 4 or 3GS/3G ?
iOS version ?

Did you make sure the "AppName" matches BiteSMS's caps and lower case letters (on springboard) exactly ? Did you check if the files ended in .png ? A lot of folks post icons ending in .jpg.
Did you turn ON summerboard on WinterBoard's main screen ?
Did you delete the icons cache folder ? (var/mobile/Library/Caches, delete com.apple.IconsCache)
Did you respring ?

If you did all this and it did not work, then Im at a loss for words , Ive themed EVERY icon with this method on my iPhone 4 iOS 4.1. There are some apps with weird characters that I just rename using Rename or IconRenamer (both from cydia).

You could send me your theme folder, with the bitesms icon and I can have a look.....

Maybe this is a ridiculous question but I'm still gonna ask it. Is there a way to download these icons directly to your phone?

And thank you all for posting these great icons!

I think Safari Download Manager might work. I've never used it but I believe you can download items off the browser and save it in a folder on your phone somewhere.

You can put as many icons as you want in there but you'll need to change the naming, obviously, so only one will show up. Once you're done, change the theme name to something and load on to your phone.
First of all, i want to thank you for this description. I used this advice and was able to change a bunhc of the icons. My question now is about the labels for the icons. I was able to get rid of the lables of the undocked icons by making them transparent using my strings. That worked for the undocked icons but not the docked ones. I tried using in winterboard the option for no docked icon lables but that didnt work either. Do you have any suggestions

Real easy fix is for this is to download "No SB & Dock Text" in Cydia. This will remove ALL labels from your phone without the need of editing strings or anything like that.

I really like the look of my home screen now. I want to work on my lockscreen next. Do you know of any good weather/calendar widgets and how to install them properly. Thanks

There are like, literally, a million you could choose from. In the Post Your JB Home Screen thread, there are quite a few in here to choose from as well as download links for them. You can also go to MacThemes and see all the Lockscreens they have there as well.

There are A LOT of simple ones as well as more complex ones so it's really up to you to decide which one you want.

One of the most favorite lockscreens around is LockInfo. It's a paid app in Cydia. If you want a cal/time lockscreen then this would be great to have. Or, simply peruse the threads and see which one you like. I'd suggest you start over at MacThemes since their setup is a little more organized than the MacRumors thread.
