    This tutorial will show how to create your own Theme with your very own Wallpapers and everything else.

    Requires:
    - Jailbroken iTouch
    - ability to SSH into it via WinSCP (in this tut i will be useing WinSCP)

    1. SSH into your iTouch.

    2. go to. "/private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes"
    http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u225/UnknowingAcorn/step2.jpg

    3. Copy the default to your desktop or somewhere and rename it to what theme you want.

    4. Open up wallpaper.png in your favorite image Editor (photoshop or paint) and paste the image you want ontop of it.

    5. File>Save As (make sure it is called Wallpaper.png) and then close wallpaper and open up "minidock.png"

    6. Change this to make it smaller or larger. but if you have a very light wallpaper. invert the image so that it contrasts.

    7. Again File>Save As>minidock.png and be sure to replace the old one. and Also save it as "dock.png" and replace that file too.

    8. Now on your desktop Rename the folder from "Default" to anything. ill use Se7en for example.

    9. Open up WinSCP again. and copy Se7en over to the themes folder.

    10. On the itouch open up SMBPrefs>Theme>Se7en now hit home wait for it to load. and BOOM your done.

    If you had any problems just post here ill try to help. Tutorial written by me.

    could an admin/mod edit this post so the images show up because it says im not allowed over 4 images. but for a tutorial i think that rule should be bent a little =]
