    Default Extreme newb... Need help with JB ios 6
    Im new here, 1st post and appologize if in wrong section / totally dumb question...

    I have ios 6 on i phone 4. Used newest redsn0w version for tethered jb. Installed winterboard. When i download a "theme" it appears in winter board. I check it and exit winterboard and it seems to re spring but everything is still the same, no change... What am i doing wrong?

    Thanks guys... I have tried google and searching for answers for last two days... Finally found this site and hope to stick around a while.

    Some of the stuff i have seen being custom made (icons and themes etc). Look sweet! Cant wait to figure this out...

    Cheers!

    That theme may not be compatible with 6.0

    Truth, I'm not aware of any theme being ported to 6.0 yet.
    Image locations and sizes may have changed with the new firmware.

    Probably none are maybe a few bout I doubt it. You have ever been on 5.1.1 firmware? Might be able to downgrade ya firmware to something lower and he jailbreak will be tethered and tweaks and themes will work.

    Yea i was on earlier versions (have had phone for 2-3 years?) but never with cydia before 6.0 and from what i understand from reading since i was never on cydia and never saved a shsh blog from 5.1.1 using tinyumbrella im pretty much sol right? Unless anyone has some insite
    On where i might find it otherwise? Though about searching for itunes backups from before ios6...? But not sure how to find them (where folder is) if i go in my itunes i might be able to see where it saves backups at..

    So if I may, I have another question for you all...

    I'm, again, running iOS 6.0. JB with Redsn0w 0.9.15b2 semi-tethered (they say)

    I installed Activator, and a few small tweeks I saw last night that appeared to be 6.0 functional. But when I open activator, it reads:

    Extreme newb...  Need help with winterboard on ios 6-photo.png

    So... I'm trying to figure out (still currently researching as well):
    1) What is mobile substrate? (while finding list of installed items I have found mobile substrate is installed from cydia )
    2) How do I see if it is actually working?
    3) any ideas on this error? (Tried Re-booting using RS while typing after re-installing mobile substrate through Cydia - Still same error screen)

    I can give a current list of what i have installed from cydia if it helps...?

    I must have put too many little things i last post? Being approved by mods i guess...

    Anyways, when that post does come up, I've figured it out now... so no longer an issue!

    I'm sure I'll be back around though... Been lurking around all the site and familiarizing myself with sections and rules and such.

    Did get activator, OpenSSH (changed password ), springflash, and NoNewsIsGoodNews working on ios 6

    Cheers!

    Have since found bAdOs is compatable as are most of the updates (having trouble with color keyboard install - says "size missmatch"?) and got winterboard to load it.

    Have just dove into JB and loving it!
