With the iOS 6.1 Jailbreak finally being released we are finally able to get a detailed look into our devices running 6x firmware. Previously this was restricted to A4 devices and below.

The idea behind this thread IS to (ideally) bring all 6x related theming questions to a common or master thread that ALL users can read thru and also post their questions to in regards to theming 6x - but mainly geared towards 6.1.

I hope this can help out EVERYBODY in MMi and feel free to correct me and others if need be.

I am basing most of this Thread from an iphone 5 perspective but also referencing an iphone 4S on 5.1.1

I am by no means the authority on theming I thought people might find this guide useful.

For ME, I use iFunbox for both Windows and MAC with no issues at all. I like that fact that you can plug it to your computer like you do with iTunes and you can drag files out of your iDevice and it will copy to your folder on your computer and vice versa. It makes navigating your iDevice so much easier in my opinion.

There are other methods so it really comes down to what you feel comfortable with, I used to use OpenSSH installed on my iDevice and SBSettings but you still require a program to run on your computer and it pushes files via WiFi and other specifics

EDIT: One issue with iFunbox is that it corrupts these files:

AppIconMask@2x~iphone.png
AppIconOverlay@2x~iphone.png
AppIconShadow@2x~iphone.png


So for any file transfers of the above three (3) files I'd advise to use OpenSSH and or Diskaid/Winscp/CyberDuck etc.

There is a few different ways to theme and that is up to each person how they wish to theme. Majority of the information I will post is relative to WinterBoard theming.

So once you have jailbroken your iDevice and you wish to theme via WinterBoard you will need to install WinterBoard via Cydia (Think of Cydia as a Jailbreak APP Store if you must)

If you do not wish to theme via WinterBoard then "Manual theming" is for you but also a lot more dangerous as you are dealing with the LIVE directories of your iDevice.

***BEWARE***

ONE THING I cannot stress enough is to at least BACKUP folders/files before making changes incase something goes wrong!!!

So if you have WinterBoard installed you are now set to begin theming or simply to download iOS6 themes from Cydia.

Im not going to go into the exact specifics of WinterBoard because I didnt build it but my understanding of it is that it lets beginning themers thru to advanced theme creators build themes which can theme majority of the iOS. Keep in mind WinterBoard does need a few updates due to elements NOT theming within iOS6. Im sure Saurik will address these issues in time once more is known about the changes within iOS6 so keep an eye out in Cydia for an update via the "CHANGES" tab (bottom middle of your iDevice)

Where does WinterBoard themes install or are used from?

The location is /var/stash/Themes.xXXXXx (the x's are unique to your own iDevice)

Have a look there now, there is a few default usually out of date themes already installed.

Thats where themes downloaded from Cydia will install to and also if you build you own theme it needs to be built in this same directory. ***Will Continue more later***

Firstly Icons (Native icons) ALL NATIVE apps are 118x120 pixels! Sure they might be icons might be 114x114px but the canvas that they sit on is transparent at 118x120px or it simply will not theme.
