    Hi, I'm creating a theme from scratch using SSH and I am making the icons with PhotoShop. I finished the Calendar icon, put it in the icons folder in my theme, put it on my iPod Touch, started the theme in WinterBoard, disabled the old theme, AND.... the Calendar icon is overlapped onto the normal icon. I put 'Wednesday 7th' on the icon (the day I made it) and under it says 'Saturday 10th' (today's date). The icon was named 'Calendar.png' (obviously without the quotes) and it was NOT a transparent icon. Please help! Here is a picture:

    the day and date are not part of the icon... but you can customize it using an info.plist

    The calendar icon is not a fixed image. The font, font-size, and the time until your ipod will explode because of outdated firmware are all set by info.plist. Look around on other themes and you should see something that says "Calendar" in the info.plist .

    Oh and you need to make a blank icon for the calendar icon. Like this:
