Oh JEEZUS CHRIST...... you have no idea how much of an ANGEL you are...
I have been googling and browsing for 4 days now on a guide/ist to help me theme for iphone 4/4S COMPLETELY in vain. Everything directed me to "installing themes" and "making themes" but for older versions. I've been trying to make a theme for so long and I thought I was going to have to forget it all... THANK YOU SO MUCH
I had actually made an account just now so I could ask for help and I found your thread

This is a great post! I'm going to be following it!
Anyway one question
Why do files need to have the "@x2" in them? My iPod 3G will let me see my icons that I have created but they don't have the "@x2"
Do the later version iDevices require @x2 or does it just make it more HD for them since they do have better pixel screens and what-not
I'm sure anyone can reply to this!!!
PS: I am making a theme and its looking outstanding right now
and it will be released on cydia when it is finished!! or... near finished

That being said, the @2x.pngs are double the size and double the resolution of a regular .png. So, if your current icon is 64x64 @ 72dpi, then the @2x.png will need to be 128x128 @ 144dpi. Retina displays auto-configure the @2x image back to regular size but use the higher resolution.
Lastly...PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not put the theme name on you're wallpaper!!! This is my personal preference but I NEVER get a theme that has its name on it cuz I think it's cheesy. But that's just my opinion...you do what u want! Good luck!!!

I believe icon-72.png (72x72) is for non retina iPads. I think retina iPads require 144x144 icon. I have Icon-72.png and Icon.png images for my skydiving log book (note there is no [email protected]) and I believe it displays the icon.png on my iPhone 4s.

...to cover all my bases. Something in there worked but I'm not sure which one. The icon.png & [email protected] weren't doing the trick for some reason...???

[email protected]~iphone.png. Keep in mind though, if you are designing for a HD product that you want to share, you should include all of the icons you mentioned. May I add small tip (it's been mentioned before). I use AppInfo from cydia, and it tells you the bundle ID, icon names, and a bunch of other useful info when theming. I use it to create custom bundles for themes I've brought.

My only 'themed' tweaks are AllSignals+ & iRetina-IntelliScreenX Toggles. I typically don't theme the Springboard anymore so I haven't stayed on top of what labeling does what.
I used to just get an already finished theme and copy its format for creating my personal theme. @iHaz3 themes EVERYTHING so getting one of his themes will give you the labels for every possible aspect of your iDevice!

I was wondering if there was a " GUIDE theming in 5.1.1 " version possibly? haha
I am on an iPhone 4s running 5.1.1, latest jailbreak, ect. I am a bit of a newb when it comes to custom theming, I have just been downloading different themes and trying them out. But lately I am curious as how to mix and match from themes, and to kind of create my own, to my liking, not for sharing, just for personal use. Is there a guide on how to do this?
Thanks for anyones help, and sorry if this off topic or considering " thread jacking" just hoping someone can point me in the right direction atleast.

Not sure if there's a link. But zip up all your themes and go through them. Obviously all status bar images, data loading animations, buttons, etc are in the UI folder in your theme. But some of the UI is also in the other parts of the theme. Also worth noting is that if you want the UI from one theme and the icons from another, you could try to remove the auto masking folder from the theme you want to keep the UI. Then do a search for @2x in the subfolders of the same theme, and remove all the pics that look like icons. Then take the auto masking from folder from the icon theme, and place it in the respective folder for your UI. Then go through the icon theme, and put all the folders except the UI into there respective folders into your new theme. Then run it and you'll see if there's any problems, then fix them accordingly. Best way is to get someone's theme, then make your own them little bit at a time. So say I'd start by copying all the carrier bars to a UI folder, then making my own, overwriting the existing images. Then put that on my phone and see what it does It's a tough one I know, but learn from reading and what other people have done, then add you're own flare to it, and create something completely original.
Edit: Also, if you don't already use it, winterboard has a function in the advanced settings, to dump all UI images not themed to a folder, so you can get some good tips from looking through that
