I can't stress enough how useful WBDebug is, many disregard it as it seems complicated, but will save you so much time. If you need help just let me know @JunesiPhone

WB will also record some UIImages to tmp/WBImages. You will get your uikit.artwork,, springboardUIframework, MediaPlayerUI, AddressBookUI, and a few others. It will not give you per app images, but Winterboard Debug will give you everything in detail.
