    In this tutorial I will teach you how to create a theme for a specific application.
    Step 1
    SSh into your ipod and find the .app folder of the application you want to theme. These are in private/var/stash/applications.xxxxxx or
    private/var/mobile/applications. Copy the fieldrunners.app(or whatever .app you used) folder to your desktop.

    Step 2
    Create another folder on your desktop. Name it (Whatever you want).theme. Open that and inside create another folder called Folders. Then inside that create a folder called (whatever app you did).app

    Step 3
    Open up the copied Fieldrunners.app folder and find a .png or .jpg you want to modify. If you cannot open a .png file follow this tutorial:

    I will theme Crossroads.jpg.

    Step 4
    Open up the .jpg/.png in your editing program, and modify it to whatever you want. When you are done editing save it as whatever it was originally called in your (whatever).theme/folders/(whatever).app folder. Do the same for any other .png/.jpgs you want to theme.

    Step 5(Optional)
    Go online and download a .caf file. Open up the origanol .app folder(the one you copied) and find another .caf. Save the first .caf in your .app folder(the one that is inside (whatever).theme/folders). Give it the same name as the second .caf folder(the on you found in the original app folder).

    Step 6
    SSH the entire .theme folder into your
    private/var/stash/themes.xxxxxx folder on your ipod.
