    :confused:How can I add extra icons to iphone themes? I installed a new theme (illumine) from cydia and I saw many people designed new icons for this theme, but how do you add them to the theme?

    SSH them into the icons folder.

    yeah I tried but can I have a more specific answer plz lol
    like in the icon folder there are few icons named bitesms.png or bitesms2 but when I apply the theme it wouldnt show up. What exactly should I name the icon that it would show up in the theme?

    for example there were 3 different Bank of America icons in the icon list I deleted all there and replaced with the one that I wanted but again after applying the theme the previous one would keep show up any idea why? :(

    Agreed. It's not really that difficult.

    For the OP, just make sure the names of your PNGs are EXACTLY the same as the app names displayed on the springboard. So if bitesms is displayed as "BiteSMS", your .png needs to be named "BiteSMS.png," not 'bitesms.png' or 'BITESMS.png' or whatever. Exactly the same.

    Hope that helps.

    Thats it. The icons with 2 or 3 behind the name are alternate icons for an app in case you like them better, you just rename them to be the default icon (same exact name as stock icon)

    I would be careful about deleting stuff since you obviously have little idea what you are doing. :eek:
