    Default Creating winterboard theme?
    Hey all, first of all would like to say hi, new here on the forums. But to get to business. I am really interested in making my own theme for winterboard. im currently on ios 6.1. I have been researching for days and watching tutorials and reading threads on creating themes for winterboard. my problem is that i have made an icon, and used cyberduck to put it on my phone. i made a Phone.png icon to test it out. It did not work on my winterboard however once i selected it in my themes. i then decided to switch to summerboard to see if it would work, and guess what, it did (even though the icon is not very good quality, could be my fault, idk, ill figure it out). but my question is why wont it work on my winterboard, am i doing something wrong? i saved it as 60x60 pixels, 8-bit, .png, yada yada all the stuff i found in every thread ive read. Anyone have any advice? much appreciated!

    ps i use illustrator to create it and then put it in photoshop to save it, if that has any meaning, im new at this

    First, why only 8 bit? Anyway, you need 2 copies of your icon and you need to put it here (MyTheme is the name of your theme):

    Library/Themes/MyTheme/Bundles/com.apple.mobilephone

    Name the icons exactly like this no capitals:

    [email protected]
    icon@2x~iphone.png

    They should be 118x120

    You must be reading a very old tutorial.

    Also some advice, don't use summerboard.
