Are you saying you've already run ZiPhone and have an Installer icon on your Spring board on the iPhone? If so, just launch Installer and start browsing through the categories for what you're after.
Summerboard is the most popular app for applying themes. There is also a category dedicated to Summerboard themes, and one for Games etc. ...

Ok, now I understand. If you installed Summerboard, then you should see an icon titled SMBPrefs - that's where you select which theme to apply, and various other theme-related sttings. If you don't yet have that icon, then you need to install Summerboard, from under the System category ...

can't locate 1.1.3 file

You'll need to find the 1.1.3 firmware .ipsw file (a search in here or on Google should find that pretty quick) - then do a Shift + Click on Restore in iTunes, so that you can choose to use the 1.1.3 .ipsw file for the restore, rather than current firmware ...
I made a newbie mistake. I upgraded to 1.1.4 and now I can't unlock my iPhone. I'm trying to locate the 1.1.3 firmware file so I can downgrade. I am having trouble finding it.

One other thing, when I do find it and I Shift + Restore i'm not sure how to select the file that I want to use because it shows the system 32 file. I searched and searched but can't find anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OJ answered your first part - where to find the firmware file - thanks OJ.
On your problems with what to do after hitting Shift + Restore, just browse to wherever you download the .ipsw files to, and select the 1.1.3 file. You're not stuck with the directory that it opens to ...

I keep getting a database error. I've registered and activated my account. Do you know of an alternate place to download the file?

I really appreciate your patience. I did the search you mentioned before I posted, I just wasn't sure what to look for. I did find the alternate and am currently downloading.

Thanks again for the assistance. I might be asking a couple more questions. :)
