    I can't quite seem to grasp the whole SSHing icons/folders concept. I understand SSH and how to access what files and where the files SHOULD go. My goal was simply to make 1 icon (to see if it works) then proceed and make a couple more. I want to replace the "Music" icon...the plain orange block one. I uploaded my NewTheme.theme file...the wallpaper went black and the icon didnt work. Is there no way to upload one icon without losing the whole current theme I have? Do I need to upload straight to the icon folder of my current theme?

    Reasons why my Icon didn't work?
    1. Wrong saved file name or type?
    2. Saved to wrong location?

    I'm pretty new to this so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Do you have it setup like this

    NewTheme.theme
    ->Icons
    ->Music.png

    Well currently the only folder inside my NewTheme.theme is Icons so I guess it looks like this.

    NewTheme.theme
    ->Icons

    I'll try that setup. I didn't have it saved as "Music.png" but will I still lose the background of my current theme?

    Well damn, it worked. Haha...sweet, thanks for everyones help. Is it as simple as saving the image you want to make the new icon under the same name as the current icon?

    Edit: Now I gotta work on my actual icon making skills

    Yes, you name the icon in the "Icons" folder exactly as it appears on the home screen.

    Enigmo is Enigmo.png, Safari is Safari.png, etc.

    Cool. The tutorial I read didn't explain that part clearly I suppose.
