Most of the themes you have for WinterBoard often comes with a bunch of new cool icons, carrier images, logos, badges, etc… WinterBoard makes it very easy for you to customize your iPhone but sometimes I want to change one little icon and apply it to all my themes. So how do you do this? Well, you need to know the location of the icon or image inside your phone, SSH into the phone and “manually” change the file.
