I've seen some people on here that have a completely black springboard with just a wallpaper and dock with icons showing. They would have to flick the icons up from below the dock.
How do I go about getting that look? Forgive me, but I am kinda new at modding and I've tried to search, but what I am looking for is someone to walk me through this because I don't know where to find the blank icon and what to do with it once I do have it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

the way that is accomplished is by using a blank application called blank.app. there are actually icons there, they are just transparent icons. if you happen to click any of this accidentally, it will launch blank.app, which brings up a blank screen for about ten seconds and then crashes back to the home screen, during which you can't do anything. if you still want it, here's how:
first and foremost you have to get rsbt somehow. using installer, winscp, ibrickr...whatever method you use to install third party apps and all that. if you are using winscp or another ssh method, you will have to get the actual rsbt.app program which can be found here:
you'll want to download the newest compiled version, if you aren't using ibrickr or installer. also on that page is a download for the blank icon. you will need to install this with ssh i believe. download the blank icon, rename the folder which says "blank.app" to " .app", yes that is a space before the .app, and put it in your applications directory on your iphone using winscp or another ssh program.
you'll also need summerboard, which can also be installed using installer or ibrickr. this program is needed for the scrolling home screen, so you can get the hidden programs to scroll.
now that you have them both on your phone, you can run rsbt and rearrange your icons to however you want them. in the top left hand corner will be a button with nothing on it, that's how you add blank icons. click on that and get sixteen of them, and put them all in the front. save your new layout and go back to the home screen. now you should have a blank screen with all your other icons below the dock, waiting to be scrolled up.Peter: "Brian! There's a message in my alphabits! It says 'OOOOOOOOO'!!!!!"

Easier is to just use RSBT and hide all the icons you do not want to see.
My screen is only a wallpaper with 5 small icons in my dock. ALL my icons are hidden.
