    hey, attempting a springboard theme, from my understanding the icons are just named as the application name they represent in /"theme-name"/icons. two questions, is the name of the icon .png file simply the dock/ icon label under the icons? and exactly what is the directory the theme whould be saved under? thanks. anything else you can share about making a theme would be appreciated.

    Here is what you need to do:

    • Create a folder and name it whatever you want, lets call it "Theme"
    • Create a folder inside that folder and name it "icons" (without the "")
    • Place all of your icons for your theme in the icons folder. The icons are case sensitive so name them the exact name each app is named (ex. gpSPhone.png) All of the icons need to be .png files.
    • Once you have your wallpaper place it in your "Theme" folder and call it "Wallpaper.png" again, it is case sensitive.
    • Once you have your pack together you need to use your SFTP client and navigate to Library>Summerboard>Themes. Simply drag your "Theme" folder in there and select it in SMBprefs.
    That is pretty much it, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
