Can it be done?
If so can someone in very very very easy to understand words, explain how to make a winterboard theme, from the phone itself.
I have the images i want to use for the icons and i know they have to be the same size as the current one 120x120 but how to make it with winterboard.
Plz and thanks#

one of the best ways would be to download a theme

browse to /var/mobile/stash/themes/(theme name).theme

look at the file structure of it and learn of it

the folder name is the bundle name
the image name is the image the app uses
you can find these information from inside the app's info.plist or appinfo from cydia

So all i need i do is add a folder under themes, create a bundle folder, ( I'm not sure how to find what each apps special name... Whatever that is called) and then place the image in the folder for that specific app... How do i know what to name it?

yes, basically a (theme name).theme folder in /var/mobile/stash/themes

and inside the theme folder, the folder names is the app's bundle name
and inside the bundle name folder is the image names

i said these in my previous post
the folder name is the bundle name
the image name is the image the app uses
you can find these information from inside the app's info.plist or appinfo from cydia

Easiest way to find folder and icon names is to download icon thief from Cydia (free). It will make a Bundles file of all the apps on your iPhone or iPad. You can email yourself a zip file that includes all the folders already named with all the stock icons (already named as well) inside the folders.

I cant seem to find the settings folder, the one that would be something like com.Apple.settings. Anyone know what it's called?
