i downloaded a theme from installer and used it on summerboard

i want to keep the icons of the theme, but just change the background...how do i do that?

i would also like just my theme background to change, i want to have a different picture for my wallpaper.

i searched in the forums but i couldn't find anything about this.

There are a few ways and im sure real soon
some of the experts here will be answering you

I am new at this but it wasn't too too hard
I use the program iPhonebrowser on my pc
when my iPhone is plugged in it lets me view all the files in
an explorer mode
I navigated to /var/root/library/summerboard/themes

Every theme has a folder with the theme name and two pics (pngs)
possibly.. 1 is dock.png and the other is wallpaper.png
(they don't Have to be there, they are only when the theme has a
dock and wallpaper) -the inner folder holds the icon.pngs (they can be changed too)

From the theme name folder I removed the wallpaper.png I didn't want
and replaced it with the one I did (keeping name wallpaper.png)

then restart your springboard - wallpaper for your theme is changed

And again, If you wish to wait for the experts or diff methods
I wont take offense - there are some great people on here that
have helped me immensely

Changing the Backgorund

I have the Pretty in Pink theme and did not like the background in black. My husband changed the background where the icons are, but when the pages are changing (for instance when you click on messages) it still goes back to the black screen as it is transferring. Does anybody know how to also change that? I used the pink explosion for my new background. Also, I would like to get rid of the gray dock to either nothing or something in pink. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
