    Ok, I know there are several vista themes out there now, but I have been working on a few things that differ from those themes a little. Many of the images come from other themes (thanks to spec and bob mostly) but I feel there is enough of my own work to make this an "original" theme. Check the screenshots (last one mainly shows off InfiniteSMS, not specifically the keyboard which I did not make):

    Once you unzip the file, you will notice that there are quite a few wallpapers to choose from. Pick your favorite one and make sure it is named Wallpaper.png. If you are going to use one of the light dock/sidebar wallpapers I recommend you use the "W" icons with it. The sidebar icons are MobileTimer, Weather, MobileCal, PocketTouch, and Preferences. These work the best if put in that order. If you haven't noticed by now, I have five rows, dock, and columns all installed. Also, for the best look, use FontSwap to change your notes font to Calibri. Make sure you create a Start category in order to get the start menu like you see in the screenshot. I realize there are many things to do for this theme, but that's one reason it looks so much like vista. Install LiveClock and RealWeather from cydia as well. I know there are a lot of questions on the details of installing this so here is a checklist:

    1)Five Icon Dock, Rows, Columns
    2)Combine Video and Music apps
    3)LiveClock
    4)RealWeather
    5)FontSwapped Notes font to Calibri (This step is actually important)
    6)Use iBlank (or acquire some) to make 10 or so blank apps
    7)SpringBoard looks like this before applying:

    Once these things are accomplished, you should be able to just drop the Vista Z folder into your themes folder and apply through winterboard. Feel free to ask for more dock icons, I think I forgot to package some of them. Happy theming!

    use categories...I am assume you know how to use categories? Just open up categories and click add then type in Start. When you respring, you will have a start jewel icon on your springboard; hold onto it to make the icons wiggle, then position it over the jewel on the wallpaper.

    Just load the start.app folder into themes/vista/folders and make sure you setup a start category
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    It is part of the background, so it stays put and would be on every page of apps you have. That's why there are category folders.
