    Nobody will help you, because you neglected to search.

    i couldnt find anything. i just wanna change up my youtube, photos and clock icon picture.

    also is there a way to remove the contacts icon and ssh icon? or hide it maybe? to save space.

    Summerboard themes:
    http://www.apptapp.com/summerboard/

    Customize.app:
    Installer > Utilities > Customize 1.20

    It's really not that hard.

    Okay.
    Dude.

    There are hundreds of posts on these subjects.
    The search works, trust me, Ive used it.

    Dont search for specifics.
    Search for things like; Change Icons on Touch, or Custom Background on Touch.
    Be vague.

    We dont need anymore redundant threads.

    I hate it when kids try to follow instructions they find on youtube and other crap sites. One of my friends was still trying to make a background by using large icons that line up. 2 weeks ago! People really need to stop going to youtube for instruction videos, especially when they are about hacking a device. Hacking methods change more rapidly than I urinate. Stick to wiki sites like touchdev, and the iPhone dev wiki. Don't follow instructions you find on blogs, youtube, any sort of video instruction, or old threads on here.

    You only need to add the icons you want changed to your theme folder. Summerboard will take care of the others automatically.

    My advice: download a Summerboard theme from Installer and browse its folder to see how it's done.
