    Just D/L and alter the color to your liking with photoshop (or photoshop like) application. If u dont have them u can find them in the original iPhone files in the d/l section here. the names of the files are FSO_BG.png & FST_BG.png
    They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be.
    They only lack the light to show the way.
    For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son.

    Default :(
    From what I heard, Apple uses a non-standard/proprietary png format on the iPhone. It may take some messing to get them to edit/function correctly.

    Here are all 3 decoded. You can open them in Photoshop or any image editing software now.

    Edit: It is supposed to be only a few pixels wide because the iPhone or iPod automatically stretches it to fit the screen so try and keep them the sizes that they are.

    Do you know of somewhere I can get the pixel sizes for other things I can modify. I am pretty new at this, but I think if I have the correct size and just rename the file it should work. Do you know of a place that hase all of the sizes? Thanks again you have been a big help

    sliders - 71 x 47 in pixels
    background - 320 x 480
    dock - 320 x 91
    status bar - 320 x 20
    battery - 264 x 129 in pixels

    No, it is actually 5 wide by 20 high. The iPhone automatically stretches it to 320. Basically you put in the pattern and it just takes care of the rest.

    Actually, 320x20 IS an acceptable size for the status bar, the device will accept either...
