    I have a couple questions about WinterBoard themes:

    1. How does the hierarchy work? I know that by placing one theme over another it prioritizes it, but how can I get it to have the background of one app but the icons of another? (Like how will winterboard know which icons/wallpaper to keep)
    2. What are the month-calender widgets called? Like the one in this link: http://forum.tipb.com/attachments/ip...pics18-053.png
    3. How can I make a theme that simply takes the icons and squishes them into a circle? Instead of cutting off the edges, I want to distort the icon into a circle shape.

    Thanks again hope I'm not asking too much

    There is a thread in the jailbreak forum that is, essentially, a tutorial on creating themes. You could start there.

    As far as the priority, you can't even prioritize when you're taking pieces of complete themes. Either use an entire theme, or prioritize (higher) a single wallpaper, or a single battery icon.

    You're looking for Cydgets.

    This is not correct. The way the hierarchy works is like this: Lets sa you have two themes (A and B). B is a full theme with icons and a background and a lockscreen. A has only a lockscreen.

    Whenever you have two themes activated, that have conflicting elements (i.e. both have a lockscreen) the one on top will display. So if A and B were activated, with A being on top, you would see A's lockscreen and everything else would be B.

    If A has only a lockscreen, I wouldn't categorize it as a theme.

    To Alli: a theme is catagorized by anything that changes the appearance of any aspect of the phone. So any theme, lockscreen only, springboard only, etc. Anyway I'm kind of confused about winterboard also

    I have the Elite Sound theme an lightsaber lock and unlock sounds theme an when I put the lightsaber theme over the elite ui sounds and activate both the star wars sounds do not overwrite the elite ui sounds.

    Any suggestions. What I've done to remedy this temporarily is to go into iFile and change the names of the lock and unlock sound files in the elite theme. Let me know thanks.

    I tried to install some Metal Gear Solid sound themes but the iphone's default sounds overrides my custom sounds.
