    How is this done? I'd like to use a small icon for my LTE string on the status bar.

    Wouldn't mind some pointers.

    Thanks.

    Create your icon and make two copies. Name the first one 'Black_DataTypeLTE@2x.png' and the second one 'LockScreen_DataTypeLTE@2x.png'.

    (If not already existing) Inside your XXXX.theme folder create a new folder 'Folders' and inside this one 'UIKit.framework'. Paste both icons in the latter one and re-apply your theme in WinterBoard.

    Good stuff. Thank you very much.

    Would I need a white version as well?

    No. Since iOS 7 it appears only a black icon on transparent canvas is needed. Somehow the system itself creates the white one when on dark background.

    You won't find them in that folder. I don't know where the basic images are located (or generated from) but the ones used by the system are cached in var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.UIStatusBar/images.
    AFAIK there's no way to directly replace these images in a folder. The only way to theme signal/wifi/data icons is through WinterBoard.
