Thread: Skinning iPhone 3G

Does anyone know if you're able to add themes to iPhone 3G. I just PWNED my phone and I want to add some themes. Anyone know how?

so far, that I know of, no you can't theme the iPhone 3G, yet. gotta wait till Summerboard and Customize are recompiled to work with 2.0.

Wrong, you can, you just have to do it manually, one icon at a time.

Do you think that apple knew that the background would be the one thing people would really want to change so made it difficult? I don't understand why changing the wallpaper could not change the background in a non jailbroken phone.
Seems silly to me :-(

Following a method described in another thread I was able to
sort of have custom wallpaper on my firmware 2.0 phone. I replaced one icon with my
wallpaper which has cutouts for the other icons.

You can still skin the old fashioned way like when the 1st gen phone came out. Your icons just have to include a cut out of the background. The old MMi skinner used to generate the themes in this style 4 you.

no cutout needed

u wanna send me a message or perhaps post how you did that :-)...please.

thanks, Pear-phone, you are right about cut outs being uneeded.
@xDaViDx the thread in this section called "Summerboard functionality manually" has good explanation and templates. Sorry I didn't provide link to that thread, but I'm in an iPhone! No cut & paste.

ok ok, I see, I had not tried to change it yet I just figured u could do it that way. Thank you for the response, now I know what to do when I try, thank you.
