    Just recently jailbroke my 3g running 4.2, and I have Winterboard installed now.

    Everything I try to install, themes, lockscreens, anything on Winterboard is not working. Tried restarting phone.

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    Are you sure they are compatible with iOS 4.2?

    How do I know which ones are and which ones arent?

    I tried one lockscreen and the slider worked, but the wallpaper is still my default.

    Thanks

    Are you sure your not using an iPhone 4 theme? Or are you sure your not using a theme for a 3G(s)?

    In 4.2 Apple has changed alot more file names with the -iphone on the end like they did with the sms bubbles in 4.1.

    Not only that but it seems like you can't put your wallpapers in the var/mobile/library/springboard folder, it deletes them all the time, well it did with mine, I had to edit the wallpaper.html file in my theme folder to change the path to my theme folder, if that makes sense.

    Looks like apple is not only after the jailbreaking/unlocking but also themeing too. Just wait till the themes are updated or rename them yourself.
