Yeah it is. I would say your best bet is download a theme then rip it off your idevice & re-do images to your taste. like you would with a Winterboard theme. Theme creators seem to be very closed mouthed about help & widget's in general. From what I understand there widgets, that's why it eat's so much ram. I believe it's similar to floating with HTML, but I'm not sure...if anyone knows please correct me if I'm wrong

Yea I pretty much gave up getting answers from them my theme has been created almost entirely on trial and error, constant testing, and digging deep into the files to figure out what each piece is and how to theme it... It's been rough but fun at the same time... I'm kind of glad in some ways that I had to do it this way because it feels really nice to have learned all this on my own!

That link was the first thing I found, and thats where I found the wiki and started looking at it.
I think im just going to start digging into the other dreamboard themes again and ripping and editing with code.

This is what I did, and also what Wynd says to do when studying a new version, download DreamBoard, go to /var/mobile/Library/DreamBoard/ and in it you'll see _Library/ and /Endroid go to the Endroid theme, and open up the Theme.plist. That is where and how to learn to code DreamBoard themes, it's easy for me, but I've been doing it since it first was in beta, and that's how I learned.Whitoken for DreamBoard 1.1 in DreamStore
