    Open cydia, download winterboard. Then download themes / icons. Use winterboard to apply. I found it all pretty self-explanatory.

    like night said, just search for winderboard and download it. there is a theme already installed. to apply which theme you want, just tap and check the item you want. press the home button and it will re-spring.

    In cydia go to sections and you will find tons of themes to dload.

    Don't worry, it will seem easy after a few days :D

    is winterboard just a blue snowflake icon?

    the program seems EXTREMELY generic... "user wallpaper"... "user lock background" etc etc

    when i click it, click home and it applies... but how do i find / use other themes via winterboard? there are no options, just that one screen... :confused:


    also, how do i delete customize or winterboard if i wanted to? when i hold down to enter the "reorganize / delete app" mode, there isnt an option to delete them

    I suggest you read the instructions in the "Home" section of Cydia first. Then try clicking on all the other icons in the bottom row to explore. If you still have questions after all that, we'll be glad to try to help you.

    If you read what I said and took a deep breathe you would have saw what I said...go into sections and look for themes. Dload them and they check them in WB. Respring.

    Do you see an icon inside Cydia called "manage"? Click on that. Tap "Packages." Find app you want to delete. Tap that app. Tap "modify" button in the upper right corner. Select "remove."

    is there a way to just download icons and apply it to the orbs theme?
