    So I decided to test out redsn0w just so could speak about it here. Umm, it sucks! Instructions are poor, had to unplug phone and plug back in and redo DFU mode several time just to get the jailbreak to go through. Afterwards had problems with cydia crashing repeatedly. Overall awful experience compared to the ease of Purplera1n....

    Tried a restore with both redsn0w and purplera1n...purplera1n RC2 all the way! Less then 5 minutes and everything working (Ultrasn0w, Push, Winterboard). Only thing im missing is voipover3g which is why i wanted to JB in the first place, but thats up to the developer of the app to fix his app. PURPLERA1N RULES!

    purplera1n here as well. Quick, easy and painless. I'm not even going to try the new redsn0w on my 3GS due to all the problems reported. Don't get me wrong, I totally support the dev team but this one's not exactly a "homerun".

    Win vista 32bit

    Use iPhoneBrowser, navigate to Library/Themes folder.

    For any theme that you want to use, you need to find the Text.png file and rename it Messages.png. Look in the icons folder for each theme that you want to change. Right click on the Text.png and select Rename.

    The "M" must be capitalized. Apple changed the name of the SMS app to Messages and that's why the previous themes aren't changing the right icon.

    If you've got this far, you should be able to see how easy it is to modify any theme and make it your own. As an assignment, make a custom icon for Voice Memos. Begin by copying an icon from your theme to your desktop, so you have a size template to work with in your favorite graphic or photo editor.
