    1. Find an image that you want to use as your background or make it yourself.
    2. Use an image editing software to make it 320 x 480 Pixels
    3. If your image editing software can save as a PNG file skip step 4-6.
    4. If your image editing software does not support saving in PNG format go to this link http://www.download3000.com/download_9302.html to download Imagicon.
    5.After downloading install it. Then open up Imagicon go to options. Then Image Transform then click use pixel dimensions the put 320 x 480.
    6. Then go to options, Save mode, Then click .PNG format.
    7.Create a folder with the name of the Theme.
    8. Name the image for the Background "Wallpaper"
    9. Make another folder in the them folder called Icons. You can either use premade iconsfrom another theme or make your own.
    11. Then ssh this into your Ipod in private/var/root/library/summerboard/themes
    12. Go into Summerboard on your ipod and change the theme to the one you made.

    Yeah it is very important what you call them or it will not work. You name the icons what the apps are and they have to .png files so use steps 5 and 6 instead of making it 320 x 480 make the icons 60 x 60 pixels
