With the new iTunes update causing a lot of people (including myself) to be unable to jailbreak, It seems that .ipb files are obsolete. I hope this is not the case and that they release a fix soon but as of right now, i cannot jailbreak to install any ipb files on my phone. I was in the process of making a new theme and i needed to install it on my phone for the final tweaks, but i am unable to do so without getting an "illegal installation" error when jailbreaking. I know that i can put the files in manually using ssh, but that defeats the whole purpose of the .ipb development.
Input is greatly appreciated.

make the switch to iswitcher...no need to jailbreak just SSH or SFTP into the phone to load the themes and launch iSwitcher on the phone to use the themes...thats what ive done since i can no longer jailbreak as well...also use summerboard for the wallpaper.

There is no need to use jailbreak, instead use either AppInstaller, Breezy or iBrickr to "unjail" your phone. Then use the new iphuc. I still have full access and can run iphuc scripts which I'm thinking you could modify your ipb files for.
I also have all my mods in one pxl package. Makes it quite easy to reload after a restore.
Edit: In case you are not familar with the new process, it goes like this:
1. plug in phone
2. run ./iphuc
3. setafc com.apple.afc2
4. you are connected.... no funtzing around with restore mode anymore. Of course this is on a Mac, I'm assuming there's the same thing for a PC.

I think .ipb format is obsolete because eventhough it is a quick and easy process, the is iSwitcher, Summerboard, and dock. iBrickr is the way to go!
