    So I'm in the process of going through the first tutorial about creating the simple theme, but I need to find the 3 .png files needed.
    StatusBar.png
    Wallpaper.png
    SBDockBG.png

    Is there anyone that has them, am I supposed to create them, or is there a website to find stuff like this?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Well those are the file names for the top status bar that carries the carrier logo etc, the background wallpaper, and the dock background, and you are supposed to create them or use ones that you like. You replace the default ones with that.

    Well not REPLACE, but create a new theme and you create those files.

    I use deviant art as well as several other places to find docks, icons and wallpapers that I like.

    I started out by downloading a well detailed theme. I looked through the file to see how things were organized...file names, locations, and sizes. This is one good way to see how things are done. Dowanload an SBSettings theme as well.

    This is true.

    When you SSH into your phone, under themes you will see the themes you downloaded from Cydia and such, take a look at how those are organized, and model yours after that.

    I sometimes like different elements from different themes, so I may just take pieces of each theme that I like and create a new one to my liking that way.

    Just depends on how much time you want to spend on it. You can make your own images in photoshop or you can borrow from other themes and use those.

    Okay I finally made the huge step for me and installed ssh. The lates theme I downloaded is Carbon Ovation. No problem s getting to the theme itself inside of ssh, I found it. I downloaded a new mail ring tone and it shows in winterboard and I found it in ssh. I also found all the tones for the Carbon theme in ssh. Now how do I over ride the carbon new mail tone with the one I down loaded. Whew, did I make sense with this question? Looking forward to this new step but I will take small steps.

    Edit: Thanks to iMuggle very good tutorial at the begining of this thread I got this done myself, woohoo!! Amazing what you can accomplish if you read first, maybe I should have done that in the first place. Anyway thanks iMuggle for this post Im sure I will still have more questions as I go deeper into this ssh experience.

    How could I make a theme that simply takes all the icons and squishes it into a circle? That would have to do with coding right? Because it's different from replacing a Certain icon with a preset icon, you would be changing each icon In runtime (I know all winterboard themes change at runtime, but the icons are already preset, I want to distort each icon on springboard into a little circle so each app has an icon, similar to how illumine trims off the edges of the icon if it doesn't have a set icon for it

    Well in case anyone wants to know, to use a mask you make the PNG file (make sure you have absolutely no transparency, to make sure just save it in Microsoft Paint (Accessories) as a JPEG and then save the JPEG as a PNG again); then you put it (SSH) into the UIImages folder of the theme, exactly named as AppIconMask.png (case sensitive)

    Hope that helps

    does anyone know how to change the icon from a saved webpage?

    I have a few pages that I visit often. I saved them to my home screen. The problem is that the image that automatically saves is a mess. I want to change it to something else.

    I have already successfully changed many of the other home screen icons, but I can not find the bookmark icons.

    any help would be great.

    I've tried a couple of the theme suggestions on this thread and they're solid. The green on grey is especially sharp. Learning how to SSH into your phone is an invaluable skill.
