    Are you downloading the themes from Cydia or are you manually transferring them to your phone?

    Default Thanx
    Hi all, thank you for your replies. Will give it a shot and report back.

    Hi all, sad to say that even if transferring from my pc, it still doesnt show in winterboard. i even tried reinstalling winterboard and tried again, but to no avail.
    I am getting quite sad about this. :-(

    what happens when you install them from cydia

  15. #15
    I can see the themes downloaded when i go into the /var/stash/themes directory, but when i open winterboard, there is only a white screen with blue lines across. no option or refresh or nothing. Do you know where else i can download winterboard except for cydia? i cant do it manually because ibrickr doesnt succesfully install the PXL Daemon.

    Maybe i should have gotten the Omnia instead.

    first make sure you reboot after the reinstallation of winterboard.... Then make sure the theme file you ar talking about has a .theme extension after the name.... sometimes it will show in winterboard but will not apply without .theme extension.......

    no the .theme doesnt matter

    but what does matter is that you reboot after install and also i want to know how you jailbroke and wjat fw you are on
