    Hey all,

    I just upgraded to 2.0. And I realize that Customize will no longer work for theming and stuff.

    Anyway, I tried Winterboard and it does its job. However, I find the customizability of this app lacking. I may be wrong since I've read a lot of praises on this forum.

    Anyway, how do I go about customizing certain things? For instance, if I want to the change the icon on my YouTube app? How do i go about that? When I used Customize, I had the ability to individually apply different customization.

    Any help with that?

    Thanks~

    Do you JUST want to do YouTube.app? If so, create a directory in the Themes folder like "YouTubeIcon" and then create the folder "Icons" in there. Afterwards, find a PNG file of the right size and which has the YouTube icon you want, and name it "YouTube.png". After that, select it in Winterboard and it'll reskin the icon on the fly to the PNG file you picked.

    Otherwise if you want to change the YouTube icon in a specific theme, replace the one in that theme with the one you want.

    I'd love to see a pc/mac based app that would help build and preview themes for use with winterboard to make it easier for people to see how a theme will look that would be sweet but I am probably living in cuckoo land lol
