Here is another example theme called colorGrid iPhone. SummerBoard themes are designed to be easy to make and reside on your iPhone. When making a SummerBoard theme, you name the PNG by what the app name looks like on the home screen, so for example: even though Photos and Camera are theoretically in the same app, you name the files Photos.png and Camera.png. Here is what the folder paths look like in /var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/. You have a folder per theme with the following structure:

ThemeName/StatusBar.png – Status bar image (optional, 320×20 PNG, no alpha)
ThemeName/Wallpaper.png – The wallpaper (320×480 PNG, no alpha)
ThemeName/Dock.png – The dock image for the large dock (320×91 PNG, alpha)

And your icons (optional, 59×60 PNG, alpha) go in: ThemeName/Icons/
