Alright so I am having some problems trying to figure out how this works...
I know that you can apply custom batteries, sliders, calculator skins, and weather backgrounds through WinterBoard, but how do you go about doing that? What do you name the files in the certain bundle folder?
The ones that I am confused about are the calculators skins and weather backgrounds. I'm fine with applying custom batteries and sliders, but what do you name the files, for example, in the com.apple.calculator and com.apple.weather bundle folders for the images to work?
And, what other things can be skinned this way?
Oh, and btw, I've tried searching for stuff on this but I couldn't really find much (just people asking about how their icons or something don't show up).
OR maybe, is there a theme that takes advantage of a lot of WinterBoard's capabilities? If so, maybe I could just look at the file structure of that...

you want this path: Library/Themes/(theme name)/Bundles/com.apple.springboard
you will then place them in the com.apple.springboard folder.
with the following file you can mod the keyboard and all files located in the other.artwork file.
iPhone Forums at ModMyI.com - iPhone | iPod Touch, news, apps, themes. - Downloads - 2.0 other.artwork files
I posted a copy of my theme here:
RapidShare: Easy Filehosting
this is what I have done with winterboard:
made the fonts transparent
change the color of the time on the header bar
changed some of the appstore apps (yes they still work)
replaced several files that are located in the other.artwork file
started making a new keyboard
added a wallpaper to the springboard

Oh, wow, thank you. This helps a lot. I was confused as to how the structuring was, but now I see it better.

go to System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
you will use the names that are listed in the SpringBoard app
