    im not trying to make a fancy theme, i'm always chainging my ipod's stuff and i just want to change it for the last time and not again...

    basically i'm just trying to make the stock theme, wit a few extra apps, to be in land scape.

    i already have my status bar changed and its perfect, along with my transparent dock.

    the apps i'm trying to find/ get made sideways are:
    -mail,calender,photos, youtube
    -stocks,maps,weather, notes, clock
    -calculator,settings,cydia,icy,winterboard
    -myspace,mxtube
    [dock]-safari,ipod[due to cydia package],itunes, and app store

    that is also how my home screen is,
    plus i use the sb dock to hide catagories and all my other apps.

    help will be appriciated

    Also just an idea to maybe make two cydia packages?
    One can be 90 degree turn counter clockwise, and the other
    a 90 degree turn clockwise(i think is best)

    All you have to do is load the icon in your favorite graphics program, rotate them 90° and resave them under the same file name.

    Suggested program to use? I'm good with Photoshop and other programs,
    just not sure where the image files are and etc.

    Thanks for the reply

    SSH into your ipod touch, and go to /Applications/. Go into each of the programs you want, and copy the file named "icon.png" in each of them. Open each file in photoshop, go to Image -> Image Rotation and pick what you want. Save them each as (their exact name on springboard).png. Make a folder called (anything you want).theme and put a folder called "Icons" inside of it. Put the icon files into the icons folder, SSH back into your ipod touch, and put them in /Library/Themes/. Then simply activate it in Winterboard.

    no no no. if u have vista and u have the .png's all u have to do is right click them and click "rotate clockwise"

    but u cant do this in winscp u have to do it to the original file than load it into winscp


    P.S i currently have the name SideStock for a theme but i will take it donw and give it to you because i think it will suite ur more than mine

    thanks for all the help!
    i think coping all the files and editing to a .theme sounds easiest

    i'm not sure if this could work but if someone were to go to the extent o rotating every image in an app, would the app then become landscape?

    i'm going to try on one app and see what happens.



    as of now i've gotten two things done,
    -rotated all stock apps
    -took my favorite theme[illumine]and rotated all 2537 icons
