    I installed and enabled in Cydia, but it doesnt show up. Did I miss a step?

    I'm curious about this as well. I downloaded it and enabled it in winterboard and it still doesn't work.

    I'm running 4.1.

    That's weird because it works just fine for me. After installing reboot your phone and maybe that should help.

    It only works on 4.1.

    Your issue might be that you need to get into the .them folder and take out the individual themes. If you ssh into your themes folder, it'll look something like this.

    /var/stash/themes/retina signal/(5 other themes)

    The theme, when downloaded is like having 5 theme folders inside of a theme folder. So those 5 need to be taken out so they can be activated individually.

    You neeed to be on 4.1 and you need to have a normal.png and an @2x.png of the picture in the UIImages folder. Hope I've helped!

    i just read this thread, so i was curious and downloaded retina wifi signal too.

    i went to settings > winterboard > and selected the retina wifi option.

    however, it isnt changing at the top.

    you cannot just select the theme downloaded. that folder has 5 folders inside with the actual themes... whether you want signal dots, fatlace wifi, cirle wifi, etc. you need to either ssh into your phone or use ifile to move the 5 internal folders to the main "themes" folder so you can access them individually.

    if you select the main folder as is, downloaded from cydia. all winterboard "sees" is whats directly inside, which is a bunch folders.
