    Arrow Jailbreak Newbie questions and hi
    Hey Guys,

    My name is John. I am new the wide world of jailbreaking. An I jailbroke my Ipod Touch 32GB 3G last night using Greenposion. I have 4.1 firmware on my Ipod. Which after fighting with for 6 hours trying to get 4.2 after countless 1604 error. I had to go looking for the 4.1 ipsw file to get it working.

    ANYWHO.....I downloaded winterboard and some odd and ends fixes. My question is about the themes from winterboard which you go to springboard to get in Cydia. I downloaded one theme that looks just like the screenshot. Now some I downloaded, the background looks like it should but my icons don't change like they should, they still stay the same. What I am doing wrong?

    Thanks,

    John

    First off, Welcome to the wonderful world of jailbreaking!

    There is an called something link "Winterboard icon cleaner" that will clear the icon cache. It should fix your problem.

    EDIT: It is called "iWipe Cache"

    Some themes may not have been updated for newer firmware, which is why they may not fully change everything

    Edit: Or you can do what moon#pie said. themes aren't my strong suit lol

    BTW I want to thank you for your patients and help Ya the only one I got checked in the select themes in winter board is iBOX Carbon and Wifi Bars for iOS4. Does it matter on what order they are in? I noticed you can shuffle the order of the list.

    Found the problem....I don't have summboard mode turned on LOL I turned it on and it worked

    No problem. Glad you got it figured out! I never would have thought to enable summerboard mode as that was for much older stuff.

    Your welcome. Nice to find a newbie that doesn't get mad at me for not fixing their life

    I would say yes, keep it. Btw, there is a little button titled "Thanks!". You know you want to tap it
