    No, what he wants to know is how to load the theme that he just downloaded for free from who knows where into his phone...

    Download winterboard from Cydia
    Download Suave HD from Cydia

    Open winterboard, select suave HD theme, deselect all the other themes, and respring. I think that's it.

    How to get Suave HD on iPh4

    *Assuming your iPhone is fully jailbroken.*

    Download openssh from cydia for your phone.

    Download Cyberduck for mac.


    Go to and scroll to bottom to download Suave HD Theme and Icons
    (Make sure to open with stuffit expander as it saves as a .theme file)


    SSH into your iPhone (simple enough to do look on the Youtube videos it takes literally seconds)

    Once its linked go to the 1st menu on the scroll down bar in Cyberduck which shows a "/" and then click on Library and simply drag the 'Suave HD.theme. file into the themes folder and let it transfer.


    Then just go into Winterboard and check Suave HD.

    ...Simples ;-)

    Lawler :D

    BTW I am really impressed with this theme; the HD is so crisp....just need to find a good lockscreen that matches it :-/

    It is not uncommon that there are icons which are not part of the standard package for Suave HD. This is true for many themes. That is why there are threads in places like devoted to requesting new icons. I suggest you go there and look for the ones your missing. They will also have instructions on how to apply the new icons.

    This is a common challenge with the free themes. I use Glasklart HD and had the same challenge. Of the 120 or so apps on my phone, I had to make about 25 icons so my phone was fully themed.

    Oh, go to the thread below; Krafty is keeping an index of icons, this should help you out.

    of course my ip4 is "fully" jailbroke, i dont think you can have it any other way than jailbroke or not. but i already have the suavehd theme froma certain repo. but i need to ssh more icons over. how would i got about that or put them?

    i mean, i love this theme, but seems like soo much work to keep it up. i have elite pro also, which does all of this for me and is awesome too! why cant they just make it a cydia theme too?

    Elite Pro is a theme that changes existing icons, not replacing them. Suave HD replaces the existing icons with variations. This allows for more artistic variation but also entails a bit more work. Also, as Suave is maintained for free people contribute on their own in their spare time.

    In my opinion the Elite Pro approach is easier, but the Suave HD approach is more pleasing the the eye.

    Just my opinion.

    I agree. Many of the Elite Pro icons are indeed original, but the majority are stock icons Skinned to fit the theme. It's still my current theme of voice because it's clean and easy.

    It doesn't work for me.

    I did this:

    1 Install Open SSH on iPhone 4S
    2 Install CyberDuck on MBPro
    3 Put the Suave HD 5.1.1 in /Library/Themes
    4 Select the theme in Winterboard
    5 Respring Winterboard

    No pasa nada. The theme won't load? :(
