I have downloaded several themes from this site and SSH'ed them using WinSCP into /private/var/stash/themes folder. All of the themes show up in winterboard but when I select the theme and the spring board reloads, everything appears stock. Anyone know what the problem may be?

Make sure you set the proper permissions for the folder/files you upload using SSH.
I use 755, will allow access to those files when the iphone tries to use them, by default the phone wont have access, thus they wont load when you try.

I checked and everything is set to 0755, same as 755 and still no luck.

Try a couple things:
1. Make sure when you load the themes directory into the phone, it doesnt have a "sub-directory" with the theme inside of that. Tends to happen when you unzip a zipped file.
2. Restart your phone.
3. Also, sounds fundamental - make sure you are using the correct themes for winterboard.

ok i figured it out!! finally! i open the inav theme and ssh the folder inside the folder of inav theme. then i downloaded icommander from cydia and made sure that i changed the permission to 755. all you have to do to do this is go to your file click on it then change the permission. and vola it finally worked for me!
