    I have all the images for the icons, I'm just not sure what to name everything when I put it in the winter board themes folder in iFile.

    I used to use AppInfo to figure out the bundles and icon names but it doesn't seem to be working properly on my iPhone 5s.


    Thanks

    1.) Open user/applications/appname.app (I use ifunbox on windows/mac)

    2.) Look for Info.plist open with Notepad++(windows) or textwrangler (mac)

    3.) look for:

    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.mobilemail</string> Note: String depends on the application name

    4.) go to var/stash/Themes.RhYjH2 (ifunbox)

    5.) create theme folder like: zone23.theme

    6.) create another folder inside your .theme folder called "Bundles"

    7.) inside that folder create another folder with the CFBundleIdentifier string like "com.apple.mobilemail"

    8.) place icons inside the folder they must have the same name as the apps icons like Icon@2x.png

    That's its reload your theme and like magic icon should change. PS don't just respring they wont load.

    edit: edited to added bundles folder sorry about that...

    Awesome thanks for the detailed steps, it is much appreciated!

    One last question.. If you take a look at the messages icon in the bottom right, do you have any idea why there is a black border around the icon? All the icons I change seem to be doing this...[​IMG]

    Looks like those icons might be 114x114. The normal icon size is 120x120

    Is there a way to change folders shape within themes. I want Circulus to look like this

    As opposed to this

    And be able to lick icons in theat shape as well, like Gridlock. That would be awesome for me.

    I don't believe it is currently possible to change folder shapes.

    That sucks. I'm sure there is a way, but I know what you're saying. Maybe I'll start messing with doing with my own themes, if I have time.

    Hi Zone23, it seems something has been changed regarding folder locations. I could not find the location of step 4: var/stash/Themes.RhYjH2. Could you or anyone help me with that? @zone23. Thank you so much.

    Honestly I would get rid of Winterboard and use Anemone. I know Anemone themes are in /Library/Themes.
