    I just successfully jailbroke my ipod touch and am quite pleased with it so far. But now I mainly want to change the background and the icons, and was wondering if there are any good guides for this or advise. Also, there are a lot of apps, I was wondering if anyone would care to recommend a few

    install summerboard 3.1-2 from installer rboot ipod after its installed that comes with a few preinstalled themes, there are also themes available via installer for appearances.

    couple of good games in installer to recommend are izoo and isolitaire. I would also recomend you install community sources which is in the sources category, this will add stuff to installer to install on the touch. I would recommend customize too but I dont know if theres a fix for it to install on 1.1.4 without modifying the version number file.

    I installed summerboard like you said and when I went to use it it says it is inactive, is there a easy way to fix this?

    the only way I can think of involves fyping into the touch.

    when you have ftp'd into the touch you need to go to:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    in there there will be folders and files. Highlight the files only, then chmod the files to 755 and then reboot your touch

    you should already be set with ssh on the touch try ftping into the touch services is not essential to ftp really other than to turn ssh on or off

    right lets first get onto new applications

    theres a big list of installer sources here: http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/wiki/index.php?title=IPod_touch_Installer_source_list

    summerboard themes:

    right there is an installer fix for themes

    go to sources, hit edit then add, type the following: http://touchrepo.com/repo.xml click ok

    when sources have refreshed go to install scroll down to tweaks (1.1.3), in there look in there for Smb Theme Fix and you will be set even with new themes installed after this :)

    theme previews:
    only way to preview themes is having a look on the net and googling the theme name and hope theres a preview.

    did you manage to get the mail and notes apps sorted?
