    Ok so my main theme folder should have bundles, folders and var folders inside it?

    Like this...

    MyThemeFolder\
    \Bundles
    \Folders
    \var

    Looks like you are new too iPhone file systems download iFunbox and just see how the folders are don't change any thing!
    Now for your question.
    When you submit your deb you will to make two folder 1 has the control file and called DEBIAN and the other will be the directory to where you want your files to be placed in. winterboard themes are to be placed in
    /var/stash/themes.xxxx
    so you create these folder but your sbsettings theme are not activated via winterboard they are activated via sbsettings itself so Inside var you create the folders I told above in the first post.
    now if you want to try out how your theme looks without making the deb just go the directory I told in the fists post and place those files there
    hope you get it!
    hit me up once again if you don't

    Ok I have just woke up so I may understand a bit better I a while, I have never worked with deb files. Usually I just make my winterboard theme and add to rar file then submit.

    I have iFunbox though I usually use winscp and have tested the theme by manually placing the sbsettings theme where you said and same with the main winterboard theme.

    I just don't know how to package them before I submit.

    My theme is working ok yes, thanks I will try packaging the way you said, is there a way to test the rar file before I submit to make sure I have done it right?

    Also for the control file how would i make that, would a blank txt file with the . Txt extension deleted work?

    This is the first full theme I will have submitted so I'm keeping it secret at the moment sorry, but you will be the first person I share the finished result with after I have submitted.

    No the file is an ok size I just wanted to get it right 1st time.

    Do you also know what and where the files are for theming the keyboard without using the color keyboard tweak?

    Thanks for all your help so far.
