    I made my own theme. When I choose it and press the home button naturally the spinning cog appears... but then it just keeps spinning forever. So it keeps spinning and while it is i SSH into my iPod and delete my Skin directory. The spinning stops and goes to the Slide to Unlock page! It gets weirder. I try again but this time while the cog is spinning I delete the "Icons" folder and the spinning goes away!

    did you include the "thumbs.dbf" file?

    i will attach it if you dont have it but i had the same issues almost until i included it.

    Nope didnt work. I put it in /var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/Dark

    Dark being my Theme.

    And I chose my theme pressed the home button.. and then the spinning came up... it spun for like 3 seconds and went away but nothing happend and then it came back, I removed the Icons folder and it spinned for like 5 seconds and then it came back to "Slide to Unlock" screen.

    are the files in png format?

    and is the permission 755?

    thats all i can think of really.

    macke sure the files are named right as well.

    aka. the background is "Background.png"
