    ok so I jailbreak 3.0 and when i assign a theme to the springboard the Messages Icon is still the default one...i use iphone browser and i'm familiar with removing certain files from other themes and incorperating them into one whole theme to my liking but i havn't been able to figure out how to change that icon....is it because in 2.1.1 that icon was named different? that's what i'm assuming....but if anyone has figured this out please help me....thanks
    Also is there a fix for the keyboard and SMS not working with themes yet???
    I made my own Wallpaper and Bubbles for sms and it's not working when i select them in winterboard....

    You dont have to delete anything!

    Just use iPhone Browser, direct yourself to the

    root > Library > Themes > THEME NAME > Icon

    folder, locate the file called "text.png", and then simply right-click, and rename the file to "messages.png".

    Then exit, and see your changes.

    No luck on the SMS background yet

    Here are steps to fix the balloons:

    TO REPLACE MANUALLY ITS:
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ChatKit.Framework/ and replace the ballon pngs

    TO ACTIVATE WITH WITERBOARD:
    /Library/Theme/"name of your theme"/Folders/
    make a folder inside and name it "ChatKit.framework"
    and place ballon png's there

    can somebody explain more in depth the process that LVCIFER mentioned.

    "You dont have to delete anything!

    Just use iPhone Browser, direct yourself to the

    root > Library > Themes > THEME NAME > Icon

    folder, locate the file called "text.png", and then simply right-click, and rename the file to "messages.png".

    Then exit, and see your changes."

    I don't fully know what to do here. Thanks.

    Iphone browser is a program you download to on your PC to "explore" the phone's files. Just google it and download the program.

    iphone browser is software for Windows that you can download onto your PC, it lets you get into your iPhones file system via the USB lead. Google it

    Edit... should have read page 2 before I posted!!! Ah well. Too much info is better than too little

    Do you have Winterboard installed through Cydia? This will be one way to get a "theme" folder installed in the root system. You then use a program like iPhoneBrowser to look for the "theme" folder to explore what's within the theme you'd like to edit. It's easiest if you copy the theme you'd like to edit to the desktop. Now you can view the files propoerly and edit names, pictures, so on. Push the theme back through iPhoneBrowser and respring your phone for the updates to take effect.

    I did some messing around and got it in the end. I just wasn't searching hard enough. Successful switch though and the message icon is up! A good start I guess. Thanks people.
