    Ok so I am using the vista ultimate theme and I want to change the safari icon. I have created the icon but I have no clue what to do now. Yes I have searched and read other topics but I still don't understand. I will post a picture of the icon just to show you guys. I saved the file as a png because thats what you have to save it as, right??? Help and comments about the icon would be appreciated. By the way the i call the icon Safox Explorer.

    edit:
    this is my first try so tips would help.

    i kinda think now it looks crappy but plz tell me what you think

    Download WinSCP, Plug your iPod into your computer and connect to it through WinSCP, Your ip can be found in Settings -> Wifi -> Blue arrow next to your connection. Once connected navigate to the /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard folder. Name the icon Safari.png and drag the icon into the folder of the theme you want it to be used with.

    To be honest, a complete retard could figure out how to get photoshop for free on the internet. Lets just leave it at that

    Problem with Summerboard Theme Icons

    I'm in the process of creating a summerboard theme and noticing that some of the new icons are not being recognized and used. The Wallpaper works fine and the Safari icon works fine, but Settings and Calendar are not showing the new icons. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Make sure they are spelled exactly as they should be, and that they are saved as .png.
