    You're not meant to download the files to your iPhone, they go to your computer I'd think, and then you transfer them.

    Ok, I just went to and saw the new 2.2.1 customize app. I SSH'd it onto my iPod and restarted. I have an icon, it opens without errors. I go to theme browser and it says could not find required files to run offline please go online and run customize to update. But if I click on file sets or top themes or whatever they are all there and I can preview them and click download but when I click download it starts and then says the same error message. I tried clearing the catch and trying again and I get the same thing. Help would be very much appreciated. If there are any typos it's my iPod. I blame the iPod for my mistakes.

    Ok, now I can download stuff. But the download bar is whack and it usually crashes after the download. When I go to theme browser there is still an error message. Everything that I downloaded is there and when I click apply theme to device it has a little progress bar that says applying theme and then it gives me the "could not find required files" error twice. After I hit close it pops up again. Then when I exit it resprings and nothing has changed.

    Can't Download

    I've waited 6 months for the new customize and was super happy when it came out, but I can't download anything. It all works, except when I go to download something, no progress happens and it sometimes crashes :(

    customize does work

    Will it took a while, i think i solve some of the problems. To edit the system strings without the "failed to save".download customize 2.2.1 from cydia to iphone then Go to and download customize 2.2.1 to computer. after that ssh in to iphone ,replace the customize.apps in the iphone with the one you download to the computer.(location for iphone 1st gen ssh is:private/var/stash/application.70wq...(might be different for ipod not sure)) then reboot iphone. the system strings edit should work. customzie work, but not 100% you can download things but some will crash, but the file is downloaded and you can use most of the stuff u download not all.(my way is not perfect but at least i can u most of the stuff in customzie 2.2.1) when you applied something in customize and it crash go back to customize and restart the springboard to make most of it work

    The best advice anybody can give you at this point is to get rid of it. It's trash.

    I tried on the 3g and it works. try upgrading iphone to 2.2.1/then jailbreak it/ (make sure upgrade all cydia essentials)download customize from cydia. go to download to computer. SSH into iphone to privat/var/stash/application.shwgm . !!!here's the important part replace the on the iphone with the one downloaded to ur computer. Don't erase the on the iphone just drag the one from the computer to the application file. when it ask you if you want to overwrite the existing file click yes to all. That is the trick don't erase the file replace it.then reboot the phone. customize should work perfectly other then crashing sometime when you download certain themes. but it works. Let me know if it work for you or not

    Customize app....

    Well I did the same thing you did....but when I was done i used this code (chmod +s /Applications/ in Terminal....Terminal is for Mac' allows you to connect to your phone....I'm not sure what you can use for Windows.....

    (replace 'X' with your number)
    (password is always alpine if you use a mac, keep in mind that it hides your as you type it wont show it but it's there)

    ssh root@192.168.1.X
    root@192.168.1.X's password: alpine
    S-L:~ root# chmod +s /Applications/
    S-L:~ root# exit

    this worked for me...let me know if it does for you..

    If all you want to do is edit system strings do this:

    SSH to /System/Library/CoreServices/

    Then rename the Springboard.strings file to Springboard.txt. This will allow you to edit the file. Change whatever string text you want and save. Rename the file back to Springboard.strings and reboot the phone.

    Here's a better way. SSH to where then SpringBoard.strings file is located in my post above. Edit the strings you want changed in the file I've attached. Then copy the new file to your phone and rename it SpringBoard.strings.
