    if you has tried modifying icons i think you've seen the difficulties....

    some icons are in /Appication/name-of-application and you want use icons who are in
    /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/my_themes

    you doesn't need copying icons's theme in your /Application/name-of-application directories...

    only thing you've to make is a symbolic link from /Application/name-of-application directories to /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/my_themes

    here is the work :

    open a ssh session on your ipod and type the following (example for MobileTimer.app, the clock ):

    cd /Applications/MobileTimer.app/
    mv icon.png icon.png.sav
    ln -s /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/my_themes/icons/clock.png icon.png

    reboot

    that's all, you make this for all applications in /Applications directories only one time

    and when you want changing all your icons you only change icons in /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/my_themes/icons/


    i hope this is helpfull

    excuse my bad english...(i'm french)
