    Default Add your own background in Summerboard!
    You need summerboard 2.0 or newer to do this!
    This is what we have been waiting for!

    TO ADD YOUR OWN THEMES:
    (this means you can now have one background for the unlock screen and one background for the springboard, great leap forward!!!)

    add Wallpaper.png, Dock.png, and if you use it MiniDock.png (a much smaller dock image, theirs are 37 pixels by 320 pixels) to this folder:

    /var/root/Library/Summerboard/Themes

    the files must be pngs with those exact names, i tried jpgs and they didnt work

    ---------------
    FYI:
    when you have "none" selected, it uses a black background
    when you have "settings" selected, it uses your wallpaper from the lock screen and the dock from the theme selected below
    when you have "theme" selected it uses the wallpaper from your theme and the dock from your theme

    Actually the path is just:
    /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes



    iSwitcher 0.91 now copies theme backgrounds and docks into the iSwitcher, SummerBoard theme
