    well all iFile does is lets your explore the folders and files on your device, doesnt really do anything on its own

    so ill give an example you want to change the sms tones? your then should be searching where are the sms tones located on the device, now after your find out this your can navigate to that location and follow the instructions for changing sms tones, hope that makes sense

    iFile is a great little tool that works just like Explorer (win) or Finder (mac). It let's you browse your root files, rename/edit files and you can also do other stuff with it as well.

    As with any file exploring software, first rule of thumb is don't delete *****. Always backup and then do whatever you need to do. Fortunately though, there is a recycle bin/trash bin in iFile as well so in the event that you do delete something, you're still able to recover it.

    Best advice would be to just tinker around and get used to finding certain locations of files, i.e. themes, SMS sounds, application folders, etc., and just start there.

    for the side dock you can get GridLock from cydia this allows your to place the icons anywhere with it snaping up to the next available spot like normal


    the easiest way to use custom themes and sms tones is download winterboard this lets your toggle on or off these themes and sms tones then once you have winterboard your will find hundereds of themes, sms tones and much more in cydia that work with winterboard

    iFile for themes and sms can be done but its more for advanced users becasue essentially your will be overwritting the default files so its not as simple to switch back and forth from theme to theme thats what makes winterboard so good, once you have a bunch of theme and sms tones installed winterboard will list them all then all your do is check on uncheck the theme you want

    FYI not all themes are desigined for all iOS versios so read each themes description in cydia to make sure its compatible
