    If you are using iBrickr, you have to add a folder in that directory called "whatever the theme name is" then go into that folder and add your wallpaper.png, and Thumbs.db files.(for the thumbs.db file, you can just copy and paste that file from another theme) After that create another folder in your theme's folder called "Icons", then go into that folder and add all of your icons. Dont forget to name your icons correctly, example: Apollo, Calculator, Camera, Clock, etc...

    After that, go into your SMBPrefs and change your theme, viola!

    it is not possible to delete a folder using iBrickr. Only files.

    If you download any summerboard theme off of this website, in the .zip or .rar file you will find the thumbs.db file.

    Don't think i'm flamming - BUTT - I've added PLENTY of "themes" using iBrikr, and not once have i ever added a Thumbs.db file. ALL my "themes" work great, as long as the Wallpaper.png, and the Dock.png, are in the "theme name" folder, and all the icons are in the "Icons" folder within that

    first i've heard of adding a Thumbs.db file... ( you'd think if it were a necessity my themes wouldn't work. (which they DO)
    E=mc^2+/-3db

    I did the same thing for a long time, just adding wallpaper, dock, and icons without the thumbs.db file. It does work fine, but I have no idea what it does, so I added it anyway, just to be on the safe side. I guess he doesn't have to add it, I was just letting him know everything that is in a usual summerboard theme.zip file. I DID, however, forget to mention the dock image, thanks...

    LOL! i think i'll keep without the Thumbs file, until someone can tell me that's it's a necessity! maybe a little reasoning too!

    The Thumbs file isn't needed. I have never incorporated that into any Theme I have entered into my Summerboard. AND all my themes have been placed in manually.
