Is there a thread where people share their tweak with the battery/wifi/3G icons on the status bar? I've tried googling status bar tweaks, but can't seem to find specific "themes" I can download.

Not really. There are so many tweaks for the statusbar.

There are a few ways to manipulate the status bar to change the icons and info. Sbsettings, allows you to add date, memory usage and a couple other bits of info. You can change the 3G, wifi, battery and signal strength symbols with individual downloads, or you can download status bar tweaks like "statusbaricons (ios5)".
And then there are themes that change the whole look of the ui, including the status bar. I'm currently using the Silex HD theme, which is ios5 friendly, but have altered the code a bit to make it my own.

I had a custom wifi symbol installed and it worked great, then they had a upgrade, I installed that and now I can't change the symbol at all, even by other providers.

I'm using winterboard, doing resprings, uninstalling wifi symbols and reinstalling, but nothing.

Any ideas?

I just wanna change the color of my status bar to black but I can't find anything in Cydia that does that without Winterboard. I really want to avoid Winterboard.

The names of the files have changed that's why they don't work. I can't remember them off the top of my head but just google it.

Just out of curiosity, can I ask why you want to avoid Winterboard?
In the past that I've used it, it affected certain aspects of my phone that I didn't want it to touch with just the default settings on. And from my experience, it's also had a negative effect on the battery life of my phone too.

I cant remember what the names of tweaks I use are, but I use one to rearrange the items, one to edit the carrier logo, and one to have a more detailed coverage display.

Think they are Springtomize, Zeppelin, and Bars...
Not sure though :)
