    Use Winterboard, it's available in both Installer and Cydia.

    If you have Cydia:

    Open, select Search and type in Winterboard. Select it and install. Now go back to your homescreen. There will now be an app called, obviously, Winterboard. However, there won't be any themes in it.

    Reopen Cydia, and download some themes (if you search on the net and find a theme you really like, try and search for it in Cydia and download it). After Cydia 'installs' the theme, go to the homescreen and open Winterboard. Select the theme you just downloaded and exit. As Winterboard closes, Springboard (basically the background process that controls your home screen) will restart and you will see the 'Slide to Unlock' screen after the theme is applied. Slide to unlock and your home screen should now be themed.

    You don't. Summerboard is dead. Winterboard is in this season. ;)

    That's correct, and the higher to the top of the list the item is placed the more "priority" it has. If you download themes they appear here, and all you have to do is "check" them to apply it.

    Exciting as hell

    First, I dont know why the hell I waited so long to jailbreak. This is awesome. I have even more questions now. (sorry I feel like a 10 year old on christmas morning)

    1. What are the top 10 cydia apps?
    2. How do i download nes roms for the emulator?
    3. How do I get rid of cydia apps I dont want?
    4.When I sync with itunes, will the cydia apps sync with itunes as well? (im thinking not)
    5. Is bite sms worth it with 3.0 coming out? I want to download it but Im a little confused about the billing. Say I just wanna use the landscape for txting and not so much for pic messaging, will I have to pay extra. I already have unlimited txt in my plan.

    There really isn't a top ten list anywhere in cydia. :(

    You can uninstall things through cydia. Just go under Manage.

    No only official app store apps.

    I personally used irealsms. But since 3.0 is coming soon, I stopped using it. If you want to do MMS, you can try Swirly MMS.

    You'll have to try and find them for yourself - ROMs are illegal so we can't give you an answer :)
