    i have a 3g iphone running firmware 2.2.1 i have winterboard installed and i downloaded a couple of themes. i want to create a custom theme using ssh. but i have questions regarding how to make a custom theme.

    -where is my themes folder? i have watched a couple of youtube videos on sshing and they use different paths to get to the themes folder. one said that it was in library i think, the other went into slash, var, stash i think?

    -what if you leave something out. like the one video i watched the kid changed an icon, but he only changed one. my question is what if i leave something out like let's say the Wallpaper.png file, will my iphone just use the default Wallpaper.png file?

    -folder hierarchy, like what folder goes into what folder. the videos i watched had a main folder (i was going to call mine My first theme) and then a Wallpaper.png file in the main folder and then an icons folder in the main folder. what about the dock.png file?

    -what are the names, like Wallpaper.png, is that what it is called, upper case W? what about dock etc. ?

    -is there any way to skrew something up, like if i restart the springboard and my dock is gone and there are no icons where the dock was?

    It should be at /Library/Themes

    Yep if there is no Wallpaper.png in ANY of the Winterboard thmes you have selected. it will use the default.

    Dock.png will go in the ain folder with Wallpaper.png. Best way to learn is download a whole load of themes and copy the file structure of those to make your own theme

    Yer its Wallpaper.png not wallpaper.png, Winterboard is case sensitive. Easiest way to learn all the names is just copy other themes.

    nope you will be fine. it only replacing images if anything funny happens just disable what ever you enabled in winterboard.

    Hope this Helps
