    There are MULTIPLE things you will need for this tutorial. Here is a list:
    1) Jailbroken iDevice
    2) Iconoclasm (fork out the 3 bucks, it's a great tweak)
    3) 5x6 springboard for Iconoclasm
    4) the icons for the banner
    5) Winterboard

    I. Getting 5x6 layout
    Open Cydia and search "5x6 Layout of Iconoclasm", install the package with that name, not the one for infiboard!

    I. Getting the icons
    This is the most lengthy part of this tutorial, it requires that you save 10 pages to your springboard. These pages are as follows:
    wtf***.co .cc/Games1
    wtf***.co .cc/Games2
    wtf***.co .cc/Games3
    wtf***.co .cc/Games4
    wtf***.co .cc/Games5
    wtf***.co .cc/Games6
    wtf***.co .cc/Games7
    wtf***.co .cc/Games8
    wtf***.co .cc/Games9
    wtf***.co .cc/Games10

    Of course, none of these urls have spaces

    Simply save them all to your springboard from safari (+ sign at the bottom in the middle)

    I. Getting Winterboard
    This is just a simple process of searching for winterboard in cydia and installing it, most people have already done this.

    I. Setting it all up
    Now for the EXCITING PART! YAY!

    I) Remove Labels:
    -Go into winterboard
    -Scroll down and select no undocked icon labels, I also selected no docked icon labels for consistency
    -Respring

    II) Set up the 5x6 springboard:
    -Open up settings and find the iconoclasm settings
    -Click Layout and change it to 5x6 (the one you downloaded)
    -Respring

    III) Reorganize the icons:
    -just move the icons around until you have your solid banner, tada, you are now DONE!

    Once it is done it should look like this:

    I hope you enjoyed. And YES, this was all done by me (except for the porgrammes and apps used). If you want anything done to the iphone/ipod touch graphics wise just PM me and I'll see what I can do

    Sorry for the skepticism, but why would anyone do this instead of using Categories, or Stacks, or just editing their wallpaper in Photoshop? This seems like a colossal waste of time for something as simple as a banner. Especially when the final product looks much worse than the alternatives.

    I hate stacks
    I hate categories
    Many people wouldn't want "games" as their only background -.-
    I'm sure there are many people like me -.-

    To each his own, I suppose. But the wallpaper with the "Games" banner doesn't have to be your only background, since WinterBoard supports per-page wallpapers.

    Ah, I guess, forgot that. I'm just big into rasterbated images.

    This is too much work compared to setting a per page wallpaper. The spaces between the icons make it look funny.
