    Question How to upload a theme to my or any other repo
    Hi folks

    I hope this question isn't too dumb for this forum
    I made a theme for Winterboard and I want my friends to download it from my myrepospace repo in order to have a look at it.

    On my iPhone, this obviously works fine. However, I don't get it how to upload it right on the repo, so that it's defined as a theme and cydia "knows" where to put the folders on the downloading iPhone.

    I'm using an iPhone 4s with iOS7.

    google wasn't helpful at all...so I hope you guys have some suggestions for me?

    One has to create a .deb (DEBIAN) file which contains all the package and this one specific control file. .deb is what you upload to the repo.
    Thanks for nothing^^

    During the creation of the deb package, there is a file by the name of control (no file extension - make/edit with any text editor).

    This file is located inside a folder named DEBIAN
    This file contains all of the information about the package, which is then used by Cydia and/or the repo to determine how the package is classified.

    not sure if this is what youre looking for... but it might help


    EDIT: Never mind, I see that link above contains all of the same info..
