    Trust me I have tried (made sure it was the right specs etc)... Even tried creating a new theme folder in ifile and no luck (the custom folder showed up in winterboard and I made sure it was at the top of the list, but no luck)! . I am aware of "make it mine," but it only changes text...Whew! Ideas? thoughts? help! FYI I am using a wifi only iPad 2, (not sure if that makes a difference) Thank you.

    I love my JB iPad!!

    I saw Marilyn with a smiley face up there. Maybe she knows.

    My smiley face is a Cydia tweak called A Smiley Wi-Fi (which is activated through Winterboard). It replaces the stock [and tiny] pictures of the WiFi bars.

    Although there are a couple of other tweaks to change the WiFi icon, I've never found anything that can/will put a picture in the text field [that MakeItMine, for example, can change].

    You can put emoji icons in there if you enable the emoji keyboard. Look at all my screenshots. That's how I get the Alien icon into MakeItMine on my status bar as well as prefixing all my folder names with an icon. The "emojiPad" tweak will enable the emoji keyboard to be activated in "Settings > General > Keyboards".

    If on the other hand the OP means changing the Signal Bars (these are the top left of a 3G iPad), then those need to be in the "UIImages" folder within your theme, and every file must be perfectly named. You can't just make stuff up.

    OP, what locations and names are you giving the files?

    :smacks forehead:

    Aw, man! I've used emoji icons there before! How could I have forgotten?! Plus, I've admired your screenshots...

    At this rate - I am going to have a very sore forehead. Thanks for the reminder, f4780y.

    Thanks for the tip re the emoji. I already had the emoji keyboard but did not realise that I could actually put the icons into MIM. I put an emoticon of the dog and my dog's name :)
    You were asking me how i identify the image...i use this directory: /var/stash/Themes.oaDnSR/customstatusbar and the location is ??? is /var/library/themes/customstatusbar/Chewy.png. (I think that is right)
    the name is FOS_CARRIER_Chewy.png. Is that right? What I am trying to do is to put a picture of my dog there.
    btw there is a key lock on my status bar i don't know what i did but now i don't have the time or date there any longer....

    I love my JB iPad!!

    I meant to say FSO not FOS. Am i also supposed to use the Default_CARRIER_...I got the FSO name from looking up status bar icons that I installed from cydia (in ifile).

    MISTAKE i wrote the wrong directory it's : /var/stash/Themes.oaDnsR/customstatusbar.theme/Folders/SpringBoard.app

    and the name is FSO_CARRIER_IPAD.png

    I redid all that and it did not work. I read that maybe i should NOT put it in /var but in /private then var... i'll try that and see what happens! Why does it have to be so difficult:(

    I love my JB iPad!!

    Do you have a 3G iPad, or wifi only?

    Also, you probably need to put it inside your theme folder in "Bundles/com.apple.springboard" rather than "folders/springboard.app" That definitely won't work.

    Ok i checked and it's in the /private var , bc var is var. I checked to make sure that is the same directory as the status image i downloaded from cydia and it is the same...neither one worked though .. this may be a lost cause.
