Nice on making a theme for the iPad, but is it going to be free? Or is it going to be a paid theme?

Looks sweet. And yes Winterboard wont skin the icons correct. Try putting one icon in the direct app folder and rename it icon72.png ( I think that the name. Make backup of the original. When I tested on mine the icons look perfect! Still looks sweet and I'll be all over it when it's released!

Hi again Toyvan, what is your preferred method of excepting icon requests from those who have purchased this theme?.=Is the quality of your life, the outcome of your own thoughts?=

FAQ will be updated as needed. Please read it thoroughly!!
IMPORTANT! Open WinterBoard and turn 'SummerBoard mode' OFF!
In order to enjoy all theme options please prioritize them in the EXACT same order as the list below(from bottom to top). Remember, WinterBoard is priority specific so whatever is selected on top, will take priority. Experiment with what options work best for you. Try selecting and deselecting each of them before you say something doesn't work.
Glass Orb_iPad_W+D (puts weather & date widget on springboard - read below for weather setup)
Glass Orb_iPad_SBWall (puts custom wallpaper on springboard)
Glass Orb_iPad_LSWall (puts custom wallpaper on lockscreen)
Glass Orb_iPad_UISounds (custom system sounds)
Glass Orb_iPad (main theme folder - ALWAYS have this option selected)
NOTE: At this time custom theme wallpapers(springboard & weather), only work in landscape mode w/ home button facing to the right! If you'd like to use your own wallpaper then you need to disable/unselect SBWall, LSWall & W+D via WinterBoard.
Weather setup (using iFile)
Follow steps below to change weather to your city:
1. Go: Yahoo! Weather
2. Enter your City or zip code(press enter), then click on the "Extended Forecast" option underneath the "6-10 DAY"
3. In the top address bar of your browser you'll see an address, for example: "http://weather....USNY0996...."
4. This the Weather code that you need, for example: USNY0996
5. SSH into your device using iFile and navigate to:
private/var/stash/Themes or Themes.xxxxx/Glass Orb_iPad_W+D.theme/Widgets/Configs/WeatherConfig
6. Sroll down to where you see "var locale = "84093" //e.g..", press 'Edit'(top right) and then input the code to your hometown code that you found on yahoo weather(5 digit zip code also works for U.S. Cities).
8. Press 'Done'.
9. Respring device.
Custom Folder & Multi-task background
The 4.2.1 update does not allow custom images to automatically show inside of folders and on the multi-task bar. Follow these steps:
1. Install 'iWipeCache' via Cydia.
2. SSH into your device and navigate to private/var/stash/Applications.xxxxxx/iwipecache.pp
3. Open the 'run' file and replace all the code with the following:
rm -f /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.springboard-imagecache*
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/SpringBoardIconCache
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/SpringBoardIconCache-small
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherBG
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.0
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.1
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.2
rm -rf /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.3
4. Save & respring.
5. Run iWipe cache again!
NOTE: I highly recommend 'FolderEnhancer'(found in cydia). It is a PAID app but it's a MUCH better folder alternative and themes automatically.
To use your own wallpaper on springboard follow these steps:
1. SSH into your device and navigate to private/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/Glass Orb_iPad_SBWall.theme
2. Replace Wallpaper.png with one of your own(768 x 1024) - make sure to rename your image to Wallpaper.png
3. Respring device
NOTE: If you are using the weather + date widget you will have to replace the Wallpaper.png found inside the 'Glass Orb_iPad_W+D.theme' folder as well.
