hi, I have recently downloaded glasklart - a excellent looking theme! ... but there are some of my icons that aren't transparant and looking like the others. Can somebody provide me with a link to a tutorial on how to edit themes? .. so that i can change some of the icons that aren't within theme? ... i have read around here that u need bossprefs/openSSH to access phone files, but have no idea what where to look/ or replace ( don't wanna delete any important files!)

thanks

Back in the SummerBoard days, there was a jailbreak app that let you edit themes on the iPhone. No idea if it's been updated for WinterBoard though.

*misses SummerBoard*

1. Get program like PhoneView or iPhoneBrowser that lets you access the phone via USB.

2. Copy the Theme files to your computer. They're located in /Library/Themes/Glaskart...

3. Edit the files on your computer and copy them back.

Make the icon, stick it in the icons folder and make sure its name exactly how the app is named on the springboard including capitalization.

If you have already downloaded a theme then the structure should be obvious.
