    -How To- Create Carrier Icons!

    Tutorial For Making Carrier Icons (Using Fireworks Mx)

    Programs Needed Photoshop Pro or my favourite Fireworks Mx basicly any program where you can select the paper size and have a transparent background
    I Will do the guide for Fireworks Mx Then will do one for paintshop Pro

    Open Fireworks And create a new document Size Width = 100 Hight = 20

    Choose Transparent background from the list of White Transparent Custom

    Hit Ok Lets just make a simple one Saying 'iHack'

    Now press the 'A' Simbol down the left side of controls

    Make a text box on the workspace you have just opened it should be checkered

    Down the left side make sure the fill colour is made to black this can be any colour but for now make it black (The paint tin)

    Type in 'iHack' now press the white arrow at the top right hand corner of the tools

    Move the text you have just written into the center

    File, Save As, Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png just save to desktop

    now delete the text by pressing it and right click cut

    now make another text box and change the fill colour to white type in 'iHack'

    move into center again

    File, Save As, FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png just save to desktop

    now close Fireworks and open up your favourite ssh client (Winscp Cuteftp 8 Cyberduck)

    Press the 2 buttons at the top of your ipods list to go to the very top folder there should be a list Applications.....

    Go To /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    on the left side of the window drag and drop the 2 icons you have just saved to your desktop and make sure they dont fall
    into any other folder you will get a message saying Replace old icons press 'Yes To All'

    dissconnect from ssh and go to SMBPrefs and restart Spring board or Re-boot your ipod And Like magic you have your
    own customized icon

    Hope This Helped

    The Photoshop Version

    this is not my main choice but i can still do a tutorial on it

    open photoshop and create a workspace width = 100 Hight = 20

    Choose transparent background at the bottom of the box under 'White; Background colour; Transparent'

    Hit Ok now we will make the same as the one before press the 'T' on the tools on the left of the screen

    Draw your text box and then type in there 'iHack' make sure the fill is black and then move the writing to the center

    now press file save and save it as Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png just save to desktop for now

    now delete the text and then do the same by making another text box and change the fill to white

    type out 'iHack' and then press file save as and save it as FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png make sure you dont overwrite
    the previous one

    now close photoshop and open your ssh client (Winscp Cuteftp 8 Cyber Duck)

    Press the 2 buttons at the top of your ipods list to go to the very top folder there should be a list Applications.....

    Go To /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    on the left side of the window drag and drop the 2 icons you have just saved to your desktop and make sure they dont fall
    into any other folder you will get a message saying Replace old icons press 'Yes To All'

    dissconnect from ssh and go to SMBPrefs and restart Spring board or Re-boot your ipod And Like magic you have your
    own customized icon

    Hope This Helped
