    How do you install themes that you download off of the internet and not through Cydia. ie I went to Safari and typed "iphone themes" and this one popped up that I like: http://www.mbtheme.com/Iphone_theme/200910/sketchnote-6_11698-11698.html

    it says I have to download it but I can't figure out how to get it on the phone, or do I download it on the iphone?

    SSH into your phone and put it in \Library\Themes, apply it with Winterboard. Also, that's a cool theme.

    Make sure Winterboard and OpenSSH are installed on your iPhone thru Cydia

    Use Google and learn about SSH (Cyberduck for Mac)

    It's just drag and drop

    If you Google something like SSH themes into Winterboard you will find the info you need.

    None of us had any "knowledge" about this stuff when we started, no one expects you to have any knowledge.

    But all the how to's and tutorials one could want are available via Google.

    Just have to be motivated to try.

    Nutshell answer.

    1. Get an application like PhoneView that lets you access your phone via USB.

    2. Download the theme to your computer.

    3. Copy it to your phone andplace it in Library/Themes/

    4. Activate it with WinterBoard.

    PS> I'm assuming your phone has been Jailbroken.
