    I am a new iphone user so this is all very weird to me.

    I have just got the 3Gs, it is super nice. I previously had the iphone 2 which had cydia downloaded. Even though i didn't really understand what cydia was all about I managed to work out how to download things onto the winterboard and then apply to the phone.

    I liked stuff like changing the theme of instant messages and the colours of the keyboards and stuff like that.

    Do i need to download Cydia again to get all this and if so how do I do that, alternatively how else can i get these apps onto my phone

    Welcome to MMi
    And sort of welcome to the wonderful world of jailbreaking

    Yes you'll need to jailbreak again (putting Cydia on) to theme.
    To get Cydia you need to run redsn0w. I'm guessing you're on windows?

    To get the apps onto your phone, it's just the same as you did before
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Welcome to MMi!

    Jailbreaking gives you Cydia. Follow this guide to jailbreak your 3GS: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS on OS 3.0 Using RedSn0w (Windows)
    To theme you need to download Winterboard but things like SMS backgrounds and keyboards aren't compatible on 3.0 yet.

    Also, if you want to stay on everyone's good side make sure you search thoroughly before posting a thread. That way you can try out other solutions and eliminate what possible problems could be. Welcome again .

    Default I need help
    Thanks for your help guys, I have spent the night trying to follow the directions... I promise I am not completely computer elliterate but it just won't work. I have windows vista on my laptop and am wondering if that is the problem.

    Also I have been trying to put some new ringtones on and that doesn't even work, can you download song ringtones in Australia?

    I am sorry I have re written what others might have but I am so muddled I need a bit of instant help.

    Thanks
