1. The keyboard themes do not work.
2. The status bar (The bar at the top with the battery life and time) at the top disappears going in and out of applications and settings.(This happens if you're using a theme)

hmm, that is weird, what theme you running/keep checking updates...usually updates clear up these small glitches. I wouldn't worry about it. But does it reappear?
ok i take it black darkness was the theme, never mind then didn't catch that. I'll in stall and see if it happens to me.

I am having the same problem with the Black darkness theme, it's my favorite and only theme that i like so i am trying to edit it to get it to work..
The problem seems to be with the Info.plist file, i removed the file from the theme and retested and it works just fine..
The only problem in having no info.plist file is that it defines some settings, like the fonts and colors of the fonts.. so my fonts are stock without it.. I am going to try and rebuild the info.plist file.. i'll let you know if it works.
SSH into the phone and navigate to /Library/Themes/ and copy black darkness.theme into your desktop and you can see all that the theme contains.
I figured out what the problem is.. it's the lines in the info.plist file referring to the status bar..
i am going to try modifying some values and see if any work.
Ok its the following line
Unfortunately if you delete that it goes back to the stock status bar, but it won't disappear... Im going to keep trying.. if i don't post back then i couldn't fix it.
There was no work around for it.. It was the line StatusBarContentMode.. deleting it fixed the problem but removed the "custom" status bar icons and put back the stock ones which were too dark for the custom bar..
Changing the value made no difference..
I ended up just rebuilding the entire theme by changing the stock iphone icons with the black darkness.
I also did a little theme editing of my own and put the iElegance icons without the bottom reflection on the black darkness theme.. I really like it.. Now i have black darkness with ielegance modified icons..
And iElegance with font
This is a problem with winterboard and not the theme itself.. so just wait for a winterboard update.. the theme should work fine after winterboard is updated.

Has anyone figured out how to change the Keyboards and the SMS Background????? I was rebuilding my themes and ran into this problem when building. Keyboards and sms backgrounds must be in a new location or new name??? I would love some insight....

i know right.. Help. I figured out the chat bubbles go to com.apple,chatkit in the bundles folder and the loading screen can go in FOLDERS then ChatKit.Framework - But still missing a lot of fixes for SMS background and also the battery personalizations/
Apple must have created new strings that have messed up everything for us SSHers who love to mod the themes. SUCKS A BIG ONE!
Hope this helped some!

This might be somewhat off topic...I am totally new to this. I found out what winscp was today and had only HEARD of openssh. I was able to fix my ugly green sms icon, but wanted to know how I could make the rest of my icons match the color scheme of my theme(s).

The disappearing status bar has to do with 3.0's problem with the info.plist file that is in many themes. Check to see if the theme that you are using has the info.plist file in the theme. If it does, try deleting it (save it somewhere first) then reapply the theme. Let me know if this works for you all as it did for me. I actually then took a info.plist file that worked properly, without the disappearing status bar effect, and plugged that into the other themes. Now, no more problems.
