    You searched? I googled "how to install downloaded winterboard theme" and this was the first result. :p:D

    Hope it works for you. If you don't want to use Diskaid you can use SSH (which I prefer). Good luck. It's super easy once you get the hang of it.

    4. Jailbreak your iPhone (use google)
    5. Install Winterboard and OpenSSH using Cydia
    6. Download SFTP client like Filezilla
    7. Use google and your brain to connect to your iPhone over wifi.
    8. Use SFTP client to copy themes to /Library/Themes on your phone
    9. Enable theme using Winterboard app.

    Done.

    Its not really any different on a Mac.

    Here is the nutshell answer:

    1. You MUST Jailbreak your phone.
    2. Install Winterboard
    3. Install a theme with Cydia to see how they are structured
    4. Download the internet theme files to your computer
    5. Put them in your Library/Themes folder either with a sFTP program like CyberDuck or a USB program like PhoneView. Make sure they match the Cydia themes structure and naming conventions.
    6. Use WinterBoard to activate the new theme.

    PS. We're not going to hold your hand completely because the info is readily available by searching both here and on MacThemes.
