    Im a noob at this so trying to get all the info before I go through with it. Do you guys use winterboard? Or you use something else?

    I will be using a windows 7 pc by the way.

    Also I'm on a tethered jailbreak.

    Winterboard from Cydia. HOWEVER, Winterboard has not kept up with iOS4.2.1 changes, so parts of your themes won't work without some manual intervention.

    I also use iPhone Browser to get to the iPhone's file system and place files manually.

    I use WinSCP to browse into the phone from my XP box to modify/create themes. Winterboard is great to apply existing themes, but if you're going to be hacking them, you need to get in and out of the file system.

    I use a combination of WinterBoard and iFile. I use iFile to get into the file system and replace files and edit text.

    You can jailbrake it using Redsn0w, but it's a bit finicky. I did mine recently and it didn't go without a fight, but it went. It will also be tethered.

    Your the first one I heard of having IP4 & 4.2.1 with untethered JB. Pretty sure, everyone would like to know how you did it.

    The untethered jailbreak is available from the dev-team in beta. Lots of people have used it, but it s not without problems. Most notably Bluetooth is disabled. Also you can't use it without 4.2b3 blobs at the moment.

    So how will I go about installing a new icon for bitesms and any other icon? Do I have to replace both of these things? or just one?

    You can replace both if you like but it's not necessary. If you have a 3G/3GS, you'll need to replace the regular icon (icon.png) If you have an iPhone 4 then you'll need to replace the @2x.png files.
