I would suggest tearing apart a theme to find names, sizes and locations. Plenty of vids on you tube also.

Either way, you can SSH it out from your phone if you install it from Cydia.

You will need to download possibly a few tweaks from Cydia depending how you want to do it. For me I use OpenSSH, SBSettings and iFile. iFile is a godsend as it lets u fully navigate your iPhone, preview the files, save the images and even edit files real time. If used correctly and wisely if shouldn't create any problems. The beauty about iFile is it decrypts the encryption Apple apply to all images stored within the iPhone. As said earlier save to your camera roll the image you wish to theme and Sync with iTunes then you have the exact png file apple uses. I think it's $4 on Cydia but well worth it. You can also use it to search via Hierarchy which is useful to locate hard to source files...
