    First time ever Jailbreaking. I have Cydia. It reset itself, Now I don't know what to do.

    How do I install new themes? I tried to install one, But it said I needed more sources?

    Any newbie help here?

    Easiest way to install themes is to use Winterboard. Search for it on Cydia and install it then go to Cydia > Sections > scroll down to Themes (Springboard) and check them out to see what you like. Springboard means home screen.

    When I click install, It says..

    "Prepare Archives"

    "I wasnt able to locate the file for the preferenceloader package. This might mean you need to manually fix it."

    I'm not sure what that means. I'm new to jailbreaking myself and I didn't get that when I installed winterboard. Someone with more experience will have to chime in.

    That message happens to me when I attempt to download a tweak before Cydia has finished loading everything upon startup. Go back into the tweak main page and tap on "modify" and then "clear".Go back to the tweaks main page and it should now just say "install". Tap that and it should work.

    Yes when i open cydia i await until all the packages have downloaded and finished before i start checking out the sections.

    One easy tweak you may like is barrel !

    I recently downloaded the black ups hd theme as i like this look.

    Just be wary on what you choose as some tweaks do cause conflicts.

    So far i have,

    Winterboard
    barrel
    ifile
    hands free control
    siri launch
    sb settings
    spire

    and a couple of themes.

    learn how to uninstall tweaks too so your prepared.
