    Apple will never make themeing for the iPhone allowed. Get it out of your head

    #1 Who will make the themes?
    #2. There are THOUSANDS of apps in the app store. How will a person making themes make a matching icon for every app?
    #3 Honestly, cmon think about it. Its not going to happen

    all they have to do is enable the ability to do it and then sell an app giving us access to that single part of the drive to create and add our own. Actually it could be integrated into iTunes to remove the need to ssh at all. It's always possible if they can figure out a way to make money by doing it.

    1. I take it that you do realize that there are already people making themes?
    2. These people (and a wide community of themers) are also making thousands of icons for thousands of applications.
    3. Give better reasons.

    Its impossible for themers to create matching icons for all the apps. otherwise you end up with some apps not matching=not good looking

    it would work the same way it does now. If there is a specific app that you'd like an icon for a specific theme, you request it or make it yourself. Simple.

    Apple's idea of a theme won't include icons, they don't care that much about a feature like this. If anything all they'd allow would be wallpapers, docks and UI elements

    1) people will make themes and then submit it to apple. if apple considers it a well done theme they will put it in a store.
    2) when you purchase an app it gives you a code that allows you to access a server on apple.com or w/e that allows you to request, post, and download different icons for themes. there for you can request it and then anybody can create it and finally you or anyone else can download it.
    3) its a way to make money and it will cut down jailbreaks. i know i wouldn't jailbreak

    it would be illegal possibly to display an icon for appstore apps other than the ones provided by the developers. by themes, im just asking for a springboard background. nothing more
