first of all, you need ifile. It's a paid app on cydia, but you can get the free trial (which doesnt seem to have an end date) and be equally capable of doing what you need to do
next, upload your images onto your idevice from your computer using SSH or something else (like ifunbox for windows, or uploading it to mediafire and downloading it using safari)
note: safari downloads are stored in user/documents, DO NOT close safari before accessing the file in ifile, elsewise it gets deleted
once you've got your images on ur idevice and you can access them on ifile, create a folder that's named the same as the ID for your app that you're customizing. It follows the form of com.xxx.xxxx (theres a list of IDs somewhere, i think someone else has a link)
once you have the folder correctly named (case sensitive), and your tiles are in the folder, move the folder to /user/library/Metroon/Resources/Tiles
once ur done, respring, and the tile should now appear. Make sure you created both a Tile.png AS WELL AS a [email protected] because it's important you have both (just make two copies of the same tile)
if you get lost or confused, more detailed instructions can be provided for any particular section of this tutorial. Good luck, and have fun :]

I've figured out how to do the tiles.
Is there any way that I can edit the theme to go into a landscape mode? Like this (at 2:35)? The theme is Metro 8.2 for Dreamboard, a lot different from Metroon (Metroon being much, much better). I just love the idea of the landscape mode, has anyone done this or know how to do it?

Does anyone know if a standalone battery lockscreen would work on this?
I love the homescreen's simplicity and pretty much everything about Metroon, but when it's charging or syncing, it doesn't change to show me how much battery I have or anything. Could I download a separate lockscreen theme for this so I can see my battery's status?
If so, what themes would you say match Metroon?

There is no way to install a different Lockscreen. Just select the desktop icon before charging. In this case the standard lockscreen will be used.

So no one can grab me the mods from BCSCustoms?
Also tiles for ifile arent working?

I love this theme so much, I had it for months and it is just so great.
However I was wondering if anyone has any wallpapers for the main metroon theme, not like the lock screen but the actual theme. Thank you!

Somebody had asked me to share this before but accidentally deleted it last time. I ended up redoing it because I wanted to try it again. This is done using summerboard mode with a dashboard x widget and an iWidget and of course iconoclasm. As you can see in the video, it's not perfect but I can share if anybody want my layout and icons

[email protected] to the springboard app folder. You can drop it in to the com.apple.springboard bundle to theme it

Here is the SB mod I showed earlier. Some quick instructions. Iconoclasm layout goes in "/Library/Iconoclasm/Layout" and should be activated first. After respring then arrange icons as you wish as well as setting up folders. Folder enhancer works nicely with this mod. Then turn on summerboard mode in winterboard and big icons should be in effect. To add you own big tiles just add them to the "Icons" folder and rename them according to the app name that it shows in springboard ex "[email protected] and Photos.png" and make it 200x200 in dimensions to match. My icons have a slight gradient in them so i included a simple psd if you want it to match.
tips: I found arranging icons more cumbersome when large so thats why i say do that last. If you want big icons in your folders the activate the MetroSB layout in the extras section of iconoclasm.
Also you can use gridlock tweak to leave yourself empty spaces if you are wanting to add widgets through either dashboardX or iWidgets

will the new iphones screen size make metroon unusable?
