    I've got a theme DLed onto my iPod touch, and I've found a few supplemental packs of icons to add to the theme. Can anyone tell me how I go about adding the icons to the apps that don't go with the theme?

    For example, I've got the Picnic theme here. There's no icon for Twitterfon, but there is one for Twitter. I need to find a way to get the Twitterfon icon swapped with the Picnic icon for Twitter.

    I've gotten into the iPod's directory using Netatalk, so what's up for me now?

    Also, a link to a tutorial would be great, too, if no one feels like typing out directions!

    Thanks in advance!

    It looks like I can get to the themes folder using DiskAid, too, but once I get there I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. I thought I would rename the .png files to what I needed, but it doesn't look that simple. Of course it would be great if the Picnic guy could just take all of the icons and re-up them to Cydia, but that would have happened by now if there was any interest in it.

    The link I gave is a way to change when using with Winterboard. I would suggest making a theme and applying with Winterboard. You could physically change the .png files in the /private/var/mobile/Applications folder also. You'll see folders with long strings of letters and numbers. In each folder is the Application_Name.app folder and in there should be an icon.png file.

    Actually, I got into the system with Cyberduck, and I'm working away on it. Thanks, though, for the link!
