I am getting very anxious for some documentation on the image generator, as I have an upcoming deadline where I need a themed application working on IE7+. I have changed my SCSS and everything to work fine with Webkit and Geko based browsers, but IE8 is still rendering the images which are the stock theme. It's not much i need changed, just panel frame colors and the background on panel frame buttons (i'm extending the portal demo).
After hours of searching, the best i found was a reference in this video (http://vimeo.com/19159630) where it was said that the Sencha solution to this was "secret" and further documentation was to come. I downloaded the SDK and noticed an image generator part of it, but even following the instructions i cannot seem to get it to work.
The command line arguments that the image generator asks for do not make much sense. the -d option asks for the directoy of your Ext JS 4 SDK dir, is this referencing the downloaded Ext 4 JS folder (which I have moved css/images/js around to other places), or the actual dir of the SDK tools (for me it is /Applications/SenchaSDKTools-1.1)? If it is in reference to my downloaded version of Ext JS 4, do I need to point this at the CSS part, or the images part? The -c option asks for the css file, but is that the compiled .scss it is looking for, or the actual .scss? I've tried all of the options I could think of to make this work, but all I get on the command line (even use -v) is this:
I've even let it run for about an hour and a half to give it the benefit of the doubt that something was happening. No luck.

Please release some documentation soon on this. I really needed to be released with the general release of ExtJS 4 with as much as the "ease" of theming was pushed before the release. I put a lot on the line to use Ext 4 and I hope that I didn't make the wrong decision.
