    I DLed a theme today and I don't like it so I'm not going to use it, but a few of the icons are AWESOME, especially the "Installous" one, and I'd like to get them and use them on their own, how do I go about doing that? I've played around with Iphone Browser a bit but I have no idea where I'd start to look for individual components of themes.

    I'm using iPhone Browser as my "get into the phone" program, I have a 3GS running jailbroken (obviously) 3.0.0 FW, and I'm using a PC with Windows XP. Don't have Wi-Fi, so all the stuff needs to be done via USB.

    Hope that's detailed enough info to be able to provide help, thanks.

    Thanks, that Helps me with the first half (finding it), now how do I apply that icon to the app? Is the "default" springboard/app icons a theme too, so of just do the same thing but paste the new icon?

    I think if you want to swap out individual icons you could just rename the original and copy the new icon into the appropriate application directory. They are located in the /Applications/[AppName].app/ directory, and are usually named Icon.png (except for the music player icon, I believe).
