    You might get more help if you ask the Themes Tutorial Section, but that's just my opinion...

    Edit: It got moved there, cool now my post is completely useless

    the simpelst way to change color is to join the wirght layer and press ctrl + u
    now you can colour it like you want.
    To make it shine just open the Blending Options and now there are some possiblities...
    - Outer Glow
    - Inner Glow

    Here you can make it shiny =)

    But I have also a question...how can I edit artwork-files on 2.0.1 on Windows?
    Because I also make a new theme at the moment.

    Cheers

    I'll tell you how to edit other.artwork files only if you promise to share your theme once it's done, k? k. Just read http://www.saurik.com/id/9 the section called Cached .artwork files and it'll explain how to edit them, but it only works on winterboard. If you need any help feel free to ask
