    The first time it crashed yes it went into safe mode but I think I rebooted and it went to normal and now it stays in normal but winterboard isn't working properly. It changes some of the theme but like stated it doesn't change the icons to what It should be

    Are the apps in the same selection as your themes? If they arent then you must select both. Try to go in via ssh and see if the app icons are in there. Last resort you could ssh all your themes from your phone to your pc/mac then ssh them back on once you reinstall winterboard. But that is a last resort.

    yeah it sounds like the theme icons are not where they suppose to be ssh into the theme make sure you have a icons folders if so and all your folders are in place then you set but like tjb5099 said just reinstall winterboard

    Make sure you are under /private/var/stash/Themes.lJLEgU this should be where the theme is located.
