    Default I need help changing my theme
    I got the theme I want but when I apply it using winterboard, it's just puts it as a background. Somebody told me use iblank and put 8 blank icons at the top of page 1 and still no luck...


    I've watched a bunch of youtube videos and I can't find any videos showing you how to do this... It shows you how to download winterboard and ssh and then they apply the theme and the videos end. They never even show you if the theme worked. So I guess this is some hidden secret so if somebody would share it with me, I would gladly appreciate it

    Have really no idea what exactly you mean, would help if you had a screen shot. Is the theme you want placed above all other active things in winterboard? I mean try moving it to the top in winterboard.

    Like isn't there more stuff you have to do like use iblanks, etc. It's not as easy as applying the theme on winterboard and then bam it works.

    It basically looks like this - http://img843.imageshack.us/img843/7862/img0488.png

    I misunderstood someone and put my apps into the iblanks but now I have them at the top by themselves and I turned off five icon dock so it's not those two things.

    I'm trying to use the HTC theme in the theme launch thread. I got a 3GS with 4.0.2 I believe or whatever the highest you can JB with.

    I don't think you were suppose to put your blanks inside your folders. they're suppose to act as place holders so your folders won't show up on the top of the springboard page.

    Use gridlock, and you can move the icons wherever without the hassle of iblanks.
