    open winterboard and touch the bar that says "User wallpaper". Then move it to the very top.

    after exitting winterboard your phone will restart.

    when you unlock you should now have the same wallpaper on your lockscreen and your springboard.

    Open summerboard... turn theme wallpaper OFF. There should be another wallpaper option below.. make sure this is ON.

    Agian, i can only talk for summerboard as I only upgraded to 2.0.2 and winterboard yesterday (winterboard is so much simpler).
    However in summerboard there is a slider to turn theme icons off. Just use that if you're on summerboard.

    Winterboard is much better than Summerboard. To use your video wallpaper instead of the theme wallpaper, use the Hierarchy system. Move the video wallpaper above the theme, and make sure both are selected. Then you should get your Vwallpaper with the theme icons.

    Doesnt make sense, People are making Winterboard themes for others to download just as they did for Summerboard. It will just take some time to get them all out there. Winterboard changes so many more features than Summerboard did. Think about it all Summerboard did for the most part was change icons, dock and wallpaper. Winterboard can skin the entire iphone.

    Granted as a more mature program, Summerboard ahd many more themes out there for those who dont want to author a theme. Winterboard will catch up.

    Also you CAN use Summerboard themes with winterboard.

    but is there way to apply certain parts of a theme in winterboard? I.e - apply a theme without applying the theme icons? Thats what I loved about summerboard

    I have found that most (not all) people that have problems with certain apps like winterboard, have not read all the info out there on how it works, thus their frustration. There is sooo much information on here about how themes are set up, how to put things in the order of preference, etc. that if you just search around and read a little bit all your questions should be answered. Sure, summerboard may have been prettier, nice little turn on and turn off buttons, but it does not even come close in functionality to what winterboard is now and it's possibilities in the future. Have fun and happy theming.
