    First off if this has been posted Sorry

    This doesn't work for the default apps

    1. Get iPhone Explorer from here http://www.macroplant.com/iphoneexplorer/

    2. Open the app you want to theme

    3. Plug in your idevice

    4. Go into Apps then manually change the icon, remember to back up the previous icon though.

    I think it only works for iOS 4 as far as I know
    I can also only get iBooks to show up but other people have been able to theme other icons.

    I don't think the icons can be larger but I may be wrong, I think a theme like the classica ones would be good as they are the same as the apple default

    It's like browsing your iPhone files without jailbreaking? So, could you install Cydia through it?

    Jailbreaking and installing Cydia are two completely different things
    It wouldn't work.
