Hi, I'm a noob and am interested in making themes for my phone. I don't really understand this entire process, with Cydia I can just download the theme, how will I get my theme to the phone with out Cydia/Winterboard? Also, I'm not entirely sure where to find the directories you have listed... will I have to openssh into my phone to edit these directories? I have compiled a zip file where I have altered the files in Sauriks zipfile to fit the images I want - how would I get that onto my phone?
I'm sorry for all the questions and thanks for the help if someone can offer it! I know I ask alot...

Stupid question...I'm just getting going with all of this. A bit behind the curve I guess you could say. How is it you upload files and create folders as listed in the first few steps?
to add your own theme you will want to do the following:
add a folder with your theme name
you should see this
then add both a UIImages and Bundles folders
EX: Click the image to open in full size.
Any help would be appreciated. I rock at Photoshop but am just getting started with coding for MAC/INTEL based systems.
10-11-2009, 01:17 PM #103Please help!
By step 2 -> Where can I find the map /Libary? On mij computer? or on my Ipod Touch?
I don't know what to do... can't find anywhere... please help me

How do you put a file into a folder on iPhoneBrowser???
soz... im a noob

Navigate to the folder that you want to put something in.
Drag/drop into the "Files on your iPhone in the '[path]' Directory".
On your computer, go and download iPhoneBrowser. Install and run.
Plug in your iPhone. Voila - files.

I just jailbroke my ipod today, and have very little knowledge about anything. In the very beginning you became confusing. You told me to add a folder... what? Where? On my mac OS, or my ipod? If on my ipod, HOW? the ipod just doesn't give you access to your directories...

04-29-2010, 02:33 PM #118Easy way to create winterboard theme
I found the answer on this new website called codethemed.
I was also looking high and low for an easy way to make themes for my iPhone. You got to check it out to see how easy it is on CodeThemed Home You can even use pictures from your computer to build the theme.
I am loving it

Strange behaviour on winterboards side. I have an edited SpringBoard.strings (Springboard.App/English.lproj) that works of course when I directly replace the original file.
But when I put it in
- Library/Themes/custom1.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/English.lproj/ NOT WORKING
- Library/Themes/custom2.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/en.lproj/ NOT WORKING
- Library/Themes/custom3.theme/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/ NOT WORKING
- Library/Themes/custom4.theme/SpringBoard.app/en.lproj/ NOT WORKING
I guess I'm not using the correct folder structure but this theme worked until a winterboard update a couple of weeks ago. Now Winterboard isn't redirecting/replacing the file correctly.
Somebody able to help? I'm on 3.1.3 by the way but this occured on 3.1.2 before.
