So I dont have appbackup or anything like that and was wondering how I can "clean up" the backups. Ive deleted old themes I will no longer use, from the app itself, but do I need to go into ifile and find any archives or backups to delete? This morning I updated all the themes that I use, specifically for cleaning out old data from the phone.
Can someone point me in the right direction?If you think Im serious, thats funny.

Ok, I have been using BackBoard for a while, and I never really had any issues, but I went in to try to create a new backup, and it said that it was created after a second or two, and there was no "preview" icon for the backup like the other 3 that I had made before. I decided to click where the "preview" icon should be, and I got the same screen as any of my other backups. I tried to update this one to make sure it saved, and BackBoard closed. When I reopened BackBoard ALL my theme backups were gone! I know that most of you know how much of a pain in the butt it is to completely rearrange a layout to change to a completely different theme, and I am really bummed. Is there something I can do to get these files theme backups back?!? Also, now every time I open BackBoard, it acts like it is the first time I opened the file... Any help would be VERY MUCH appreciated... I am really dreading manually changing everything to switch themes...
EDIT: Ok, I tried to reinstall Backboard, but it did not work.
I also located what appear to be all my saved theme backups in /var/mobile/Library/Wynd/iSetup; however, they DO NOT show up when I load the Backboard app... Arrrgh, it worked just fine, and I don't know what happened!

I'm bound and determined to make this bugger work again. I guess I'm lucky that it stopped working today and not last night right after I updated to 4.3.1 and rejailbroke it. I would have been really pissed then. I still need to figure out a way to make it work again...
Okay, so I got it to work again...kind of. By that I mean that all six of my saved themes are now back in BackBoard, and I am able to switch back and forth from all of them with no problem. The only drawback is that there is no preview - but I never had a preview in the first place, so I really don't care. It's strange that not even the default "no preview available" icon shows, but it works and that's all I'm really concerned about.
Anyway, here is how I did it. As Ashanx stated a few posts ago, you have to go and recreate some theme strings, but there are two similar folders you need to deal with.
First off, I went to var/stash/applications.EtcTye/BackBoard.app where I saw all of my themes listed in the themes.plist. For example <string>A_100%_Wooden</string> <string>CarbonX_Pro</string>. I simply highlighted all of these strings and pressed ctrl c to copy them to my clipboard. (note that all the strings start with <string> and end with </string>).
Next, I went to var/stash/applications.Pwn/BackBoard.app where I copied the theme.plist to my desktop (unfortunately you can't edit it right where it is). I opened up the theme.plist I just copied to my desktop (using notepad) and pasted (ctrl v) the information I copied to my clipboard a minute ago right after <array> and right before </array></dict>. I saved it and used it to replace the original theme.plist that this was a copy of in the first place.
There - clear as mud right? I sure wish I was a techie kind of person...I'm sure I could have explained it better if I was. I hope it helps anyway.

OOOOK! After reading through this previous posts several times, I DID finally get this thing to work again! I am VERY happy. Basically the key is to remove Backboard via Cydia. Then install Backboard again which will give you a working version of Backboard. Then you have to create a test save, find the Themes.plist file in the Applications folder, edit the the plist by adding strings inside of the Themes array and naming them the same name as the iSetup folders with the backups saved. It took reading a few different posts a few times and adding them together to figure it out, so if anyone who is having the same problems I mentioned before, and you can't figure out how to get it to work feel free to PM me, and I will try to help.

i've updated by pressing the update button instead of shift+restore(wonder if that makes a diff) and then jailbroke as well with Redsn0w 4.3.1
i tried to follow your steps ,but there's no applications.EtcTye for me.
previously i was using OS7 with Backboard, but after the update n jailbreak everything becomes back to norm

Folks, I have a theme which uses Perpage and Springjumps but I am not sure if with Backboard, I can switch to a normal theme without those apps. In case it is possible, how should I do it? Should I disable these apps through SBsettings Mobile Substrate addons?
Can someone clarify?
