I have 1.1.3 BL 4.6 unlocked using ZiPhone. None of the themes I download or copy to /var/root/Library/Summberboard/Themes show up in SMB. I tried both fixes (separately and together) that I found in Installer/Tweaks 1.1.3. I've already uninstalled, restarted, installed, restarted. I don't know what else to do. I'm using OS X Leopard. Please help. Thanks.

I already tried SSHing the themes to the phone, but they still won't appear.

Newer versions of SummerBoard use the mobile user for storage.
Copy all the themes you have in root to mobile:
cp -Rp /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/* /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/
(the above is one command, there's a space between the * and the /)
Make sure you have Default and the other stock ones.
Then we'll remove the old stuff, symlink root's SummerBoard stuff as well as /private/var:
rm -rf /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard
rm -rf /private/var/Library/SummerBoard
ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard /private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard
ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library /private/var/Library
ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media /privcate/var/Media
And finally, make sure permissions and ownership is happy in the newer location:
chown -R root:mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard
chmod -R 0755 /private/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard
You shouldn't have to bother with with again, hopefully. The other symlinks are a catch for applications using old (and possibly now unused) paths.

It worked! Your steps should be included in the guide or FAQ. Thank you very much.

I have an issue with the Summerboard theme I got from Installer (Leopard 10.5.1). None of the elements get applied. Another theme, aglitchTheme (from this site), that I ssh'ed to the correct location does not get applied either. I have other themes that I ssh'ed and some themes from Installer that do work. Does the theme need to be 1.1.3-compatible to work? Thanks.
