    Hello,
    I did not find any thread that was answering this question:
    Why does Summerboard replace only a few icons of my apps.
    This happens with every theme that adds new icons.
    There are only , lets say one third of the app icons replaced with the new ones.
    what could be wrong

    I already restarted my iTouch
    I already uninstalled the themes and Summerboard.

    Thanks for any answer

    In addition to what super51fan said, make sure that the icons are named correctly. Capitalization matters.

    The filenames are correct. The theme worked sometime.

    well beause some of the folders you download can't be used in summerboard. They can be used with Customize though. For example battery icons can't be changed with summerboard, but they can with cutomize. So next time u download a folder make sure you direct the right images to the right applications.

    I have the following apps installed on the touch:
    Installer customize iphysics contrasense summerboard stumbler googlemaps sysinfo vt100 bsdsubsystem lightsoff flaslight sand

    well they all have their default icon if I switch to the default theme in smbprefs.
    and if I apply anpther theme which has a folder with themed icons it only replaces only the icons of the following apps:
    installer
    videos
    ituneswifistore
    youtube
    smbprefs
    safarivt100

    could it be that i have to change some permissions of some files and or folders?

    Just make sure you check that the icons and the apps have the same name then summerboard should place that icon over the original. Same spelling to capital letters count also.

    I just copied an Icons folder from an previously working theme in my theme, so the names are all correct.

    The real amazing thing for me is that the theme replaces
    the Videos and the iTunesstore icon but not the Music and Photos icon
