    I really like this theme called "ANM rebuild", but I don't like the icons on the springboard that come with it. Is there any way to keep the theme and everything that comes with it other than the icons on the main display? Also, I want the icons to be the stock (regular) ones. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

    Delete the Icons folder from /private/var/stash/Themes.XXXXXX/[Your Theme]/ and respring.

    EDIT: If you want to keep the icons in case you have a change of heart, you can also just rename the Icons folder.

    Go into Themes Directory (I forget where it is, forgive me

    ) and locate the icons folder of the theme, rename it to "icons-backup" or something to that affect, and re-apply the theme or respring. You should have everything themed as before, minus the icons.

    Either SSH or use iFile (available through Cydia). Once you've accessed your root partition you should be able to navigate to that directory fairly easily.

    EDIT: sorry Axis

    Use an SSH client or a USB solution like DiskAid (Win/Mac)

    EDIT: that's the second time awal's beaten me

    Theres an easier way.
    When your on the root folder, you should see a folder that says Library (right in /)
    Inside is themes. So all you really have to do is go to /Library/Themes.XXXXX
