there are five main steps involved in this:

1) resize the image to 60x60

2) save it as a app.png, where "app" is replaced by the application's name

3) create a "theme" folder (it can be called whatever you like) that contains these items (use the exact spellings):
-Dock.png (an image that will be your theme's dock)
-Icons (a folder with your custom icons in it)
-Wallpaper.png (an image that will be your theme's wallpaper)

4) Use SSH to put the entire theme folder into this directory on your iPhone: /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes.

5) Go to summerboard, and load your new theme just like any other you'd get from installer.

It also makes the icon look better if you place a semi-transparent semicircle gradient over the top half of it. All of Apple's icons have this.
