    Hi

    Here is the scenario:
    I have a theme I downloaded a few days ago, and I have edited a few icons. I will definitely edit more as time passes. I do not plan on making my edited theme available for download. This is a personal theme, for me only!

    Question:
    How can I change the theme name with iFile?

    Just to clear things up:
    I want to change the theme name so
    it will appear different in Winterboard (i.e. Before: "A Theme" After: "My Super Cool Theme").




    Are there any consequences of this? (like a corrupt file thing?)

    If there is a thread for this (I looked!) that I do not know about please redirect me.

    P.S. Tell me if you like my small icon edits to this theme

    Find the theme, and rename it.

    Keep the .theme extension at the end.

    So:

    FileName.theme

    That seemed unbelievably easy.

    Actually I'm not sure if the .theme is needed. I've ssh'd modded themes into my ipod with out that tag and it's been fine.

    Ehh. I might change it. Not as if it would be a problem to just rename all my themes...

    the .theme extension is not needed at all.
