    hey guys,

    alright, I ive been doing a lot of reading and youtube movie watching on how to install a new theme on my iPhone 2.2.0. But I still dont have my answer.

    Now the theme I want is iGlassSol...but it is no longer available on Cydia to I downloaded it as a .zip file. I have extracted the contents of it and saved it on my desktop.

    I am using Cyberduck to transfer the folder by SSH onto my iPhone. and yes I already downloaded OpenSSH and Automatic SSH from Cydia. So I have all of this working so far.

    Now my problem comes here....where the hell do I put this folder???
    I have been reading that I need to put it in /Library/Themes. So thats what I did...Then I went into Winterboard, clicked on the theme, restarted my iphone and NOTHING CHANGED.

    and another thing I was reading was saying to place the folder in /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes ....but I dont have the SummerBoard directory on my iphone...

    If anyone knows how to help me, please do!!! lol
    Thanks sooo much!

    You put them in the wrong location. :) This helped me:
    "WinterBoard themes should be installed at: /private/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx Where .xxxxxx will be a series of random letters and numbers. On three different installs, my folders were called Themes.rUGqw2, Themes.shiHte, and Themes.3Oxlbn. Note: You may see instructions telling you to place your themes in /Library/Themes. This is symlinked to /private/var/stash. " (

    After you transfer the files, activate the theme in Winterboard. :)

    ok bad news...still not working...

    so this is what I did.
    I copied the iGlassSol folder into /private/var/stash/Themes.charR0 by SSH.
    then I went into winterboard, I clicked on iGlassSol, then clicked the home button,waited for it to load, and nothing changed...
    I tried restarting my iphone...still nothing...

    why is it not working???

    On my iphone, winterboard themes go in /Library/Themes/xxxx.theme, where "xxxx" is the name of the theme.

    Ahh, I see your problem. You downloaded an old Customize theme, not a Winterboard theme. You'll need to Google around for proper placement of the theme or convert the file locations in the zip file to work with Winterboard. I know Winterboard will work with Summerboard themes, but I'm not sure if Customize had its own format or followed Summerboard's format.
