Thread: Theme Problems
02-07-2011, 10:20 PM #1Theme Problems
I've encountered a problem with my iTouch 4G 4.2.1 untethered jailbroken. Any theme or slider I download from Cydia and activate in Winterboard doesn't work. The lockscreen remains the same, with whatever background I set for it and the default slider. I've tried just about anything...moving the theme to the top in Winterboard, checking/unchecking User Lock Background and User Wallpaper with the theme, SSHing into the theme's root folder and making sure the image files end in "@2x"...I just don't know what to do...

I'm having the same problem. Can anyone help?

Apple have probably changed some shizz around in 4.2.1, meaning you'll have to rename/move some images in the theme.. I have no idea however, maybe someone else can shed some light?

Apple Moved Directories
Basically the reason that many themes won't 'stick' is because they changed the names of the directories ever so slightly (like adding a ~ between two words) so that now winterboard doesn't recognize where to apply the themes. The not so funny thing is that it has absolutely no affects on the performance, it's to frustrate us Jailbreakers..
Also has anyone noticed since jailbreaking iOS 4.2.1 with greenpois0n (untethered) their iDevice has been faster?? Mine has. I think it's because it takes off apples underclock on the processor. But his hasn't affected my batter life too much, maybe 30 min to an hour of the total. But performance is overall much faster.
P.S. Somebackroung information on apples underclocking: the processor on the iPhone 3gs is ~833Mhz except apple has underclokced it to 600Mhz so that it saves battery, and produces less heating.

Haha good! I'm in a 3GS so it's not that fast but definitely noticeably faster than normal, and waaayyy faster than previous jailbreaks I've used before

Ok I have tried once more. Looks like many work.. (ones with a background and icons) however the themes for SMS and keyboards still do not work. I'm looking at trying to find the name for the folder in /var/stash/Themes.XXXxXX/"Theme name"/*Don't know this one*/*need this one too*
It used to be Bundles/com.apple.chatkit then they changed it to Folders/ChatKit.framework and now they have changed it again... Very very frustrating.
I've searched the web for hours but with no results.. Can anyone shed some light on this perhaps. Note: the directories there are for the SMS themes. Keyboard theme file is separate, but I haven't had enough time to to much looking in to it.
