    1. Create folder (******).theme inside that folder make another folder named Bundle.

    2. In that folder create another folder named com.apple.springboard.

    3. Inside com.apple.springboard folder create image: FolderDropBG@2x~iphone which is 354X354 px (modify image till you see fit).

    4. Again create a new image naming it FolderIconBG@2x~iphone, which is 140x140 px (modify image till you see fit). It is best to keep these 1st 2 images you create the same. Just resize them and rename them.

    5. This last image is for the background image when you press a folder. Again create another image inside the folder com.apple.springboard. Name this image
    FolderSwitcherBG@2x~iphone.png, which is 640X720 px (modify image till you see fit).

    6. After you have created your .theme for winterboard place it in Root/library/themes via SSH or diskaid.

    7. Open winterboard on Phone, select new theme, and RESPRING.

    Cheers you should have new custom folders for your phone ;)

    ***The smaller icons which you see inside the folders will be found in system/library/coreservices/springboard.app and also var/stash/applications.2v2a5w HAPPY HUNTING :)***

    Its not something new dude and every jb person should already know this by now ... btw another easier way is to scan through all the themes available and select the one which has best folder ... download that and extract the files you mentioned instead of creating from scratch :)

    Similar goes for almost every aspect of the theme
