If it just says "phonedmg" like in the pic I attached, then there is some other issue. If it says /Users/Whoever/phonedmg, then you need to update the chmod command to use that path instead of just phonedmg.

    I just said. Change the path. To whatever the path is. If it isn't /phonedmg, like I said, and it IS /Users/wtvr/phonedmg, then just change that out.

    OK, I have a pretty simple way of making dock backgrounds.
    1. Make a 550x650 black png
    2. Place a 321x466 "background" in the top right corner.
    3. Place any icons you want in the order they are in your Display Order.plist. For exact measurements, the first three rows are 94X80 and the fourth row is 93X80 for each icon.
    4. Save this as icon.png
    5. Cut out the bottom 321X91 of the "background" and put whatever icons you like on it or leave it blank.
    6. Save this as SBDockBG2.png
    7. Replace each Home Screen application with a transparent icon.png EXCEPT for the 1st application in the fourth row. This app will get the icon.png that you created with your "backgroung" from earlier.
    8. Place SBDockBG2.png in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    9. Remove the names of each of your Home Screen apps by editing LocalizedApplicationNames.strings in English.lproj of SpringBoard.app
    10. Restart your iphone.

    Now, this does seem like ten steps but, once you've made a template for your icons and for the background and once you've changed the names and made everything transparent... you only have to change two files to have a new background. Here are some backgrounds that I have created: http://gallery.mac.com/jtrwallace#10...or=black&sel=3

    For the Dock, I actually put the icons I wanted for those apps into the applications rather than into the SBDockBG2.png because they don't have problems like the top does. Any way, questions? Feel free to ask.

    I know you are getting frustrated....but here is where I am at:

    marc-fischbeins-computer:~/phonedmg marcfischbein$ ./installipb.pl WOW.ipb
    WOW.ipb does not seem to support iPhone OS Version '1.0.1'!
    marc-fischbeins-computer:~/phonedmg marcfischbein$

    What am I doing wrong?

    Open the .ipb file. The folder inside should be named 1.0. Change it to 1.0.1 and try again.

    Paste EXACTLY your session here. And open the Installipb.pl file and paste the first 10 lines in here as well.

    .

    it's WOW.ipb then after that it's 1.0.1, then Default, Applications & Systems and System-Library and applications have all the apps in them.

    The first file inside your folder should be the 1.01 folder, not another of the same name. It should go "your main folder", ->"1.0.1" ->"Default". I guess it might also have "System" and "Icons" or whatever, but your themes' name shouldn't be repeated twice in the folder tree.
    (Hope that makes sense...<shrug>)
