    Default Can't delete themes from winterboard
    Hey guys,

    Recently my winterboard has been going a bit funky... after i customize themes, a new theme pops up with a "- customized" on it and although i have uninstalled the themes from cydia it still appears on winterboard... it doesn't show up on ifile either so i don't know why its happening.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    No it isn't. Just hit edit inside the theme u want to delete and then select the files or folders u want deleted and lastly press the Rubbish can symbol...

    See how u go

    Tried iFunbox? It's a bit better to use I find...sounds weird...I have like 10 folders in my WB list and no problems...worse case maybe uninstall WB and reinstall?

    I can't remember if u can drag folders out of iFunbox or if u have to copy but for me personally I would be trying to copy the "Theme" folder which will have all your themes within it to your desktop. Uninstall WB then do a hard reset and then once ok, go to Cydia download and install WB and then drag your theme folders back into the new theme folder created when WB is re-installed.

    Should I also uninstall the themes and just drag themes back into it?

    I uninstalled and reinstalled after that but the list is still there :S urgh i don't even know why it started popping up in the first place, it wasn't like that before when i was combining themes

    Hard to say without seeing it. It sounds really weird. So in the theme list when ur in the WB app to select a theme before u respring it has a entry called customize or something? What happens if u select it? Post up a screen shot...I would empty out the whole theme folder as opposed to deleting or even rename it slightly differently. You can always re-install

    Sorry man I don't think I can help much more...you have mucked with the mobile substrate at all? This seems deeper than WB itself to be honest...

    And they're icon files being left behind? Maybe that's the problem Before I delete or a theme from cydia, I have to "restore all icons" in Themeiconmaker. This will delete all the icons that aren't in the original .deb
    I could be misreading something somewhere, but I just thought I'd ask
