    Get any custom dialer from Cydia, SSH into phone to get that custom dialer theme to your computer then examine the images and structure of the dialer theme.

    I personally don't know of any dialer theme tutorials but doing it this way is imo the best way to understand theming. By just getting a previously made theme and examining it. You will be able to see the image sizes, names, location.

    The custom dialer theme will be in /Library/Themes/ <--here along with all your other Winterboard themes.

    I didn't understand your question "how do I open them up",
    Are you stuck on opening the Mobilephone.app within the Theme?
    Are you on a Mac or PC?

    Edit: Broomhead just posted a link to "how to" here in the other thread you posted in:

    okay i figured out how to open them up and i made a quick one with my kids but i can't get it to show up on the iphone. i put it in Applications/MobilePhone.app and saved it as BarDialer_Sel.png. in winterboard i have all the themes off and no dialers checked. all i get is the stock dialer.

    thanks

    The images need to go only in the theme in Winterboard not in the actual Applications/MobilePhone.app.

    In your Dialertheme/Bundles/com.apple.mobilephone/ you should have:

    dialerkeypad.png 320x273
    dialerkeypad_pressed.png 320x273
    dialerlcd.png 320x74
    DefaultDialer.png 320x460
    callbkgnd_pressed.png 3x64
    callbkgnd.png 3x64
    addcontact_pressed.png 107x64
    addcontact.png 107x64
    delete_pressed.png 107x64
    delete.png 107x64

    PM me your email and I will send you the default images so you can have an idea what they are for.

    BTW, the BarDialer_Sel.png is the small "Dialer" icon that goes on the bottom of the phone app along with Favorites, Recents, Contacts, "Dialer", Voicemail
