    Default Need help.. =/ please.. im a newb
    I have Cydia and the "Installer" was wondering why do i need both..? Bought the phone from a friend and had those on there.. I was looking through them cause wanted to change my "skin/them" and found the theme(summerboard) which is in the cydia and then there are a few different ones in the installer program.. like them(custom) and i think another one.. so i go in them and found a them/skin i like and download and watch it complete but then when i hit the home button everything is the same as how it was originally.. why does it do that..? Is there something im missing or a process i have to go through like download it in through cydia and then run it in "installer"..

    I really appreciate your help

    Download the themes only puts them on your phone, but doesn't apply them.

    To apply them you also need to download either Summerboard or Customize.

    Also, you need both Cydia and Installer because as you've seen, they both use different source repositories, although some overlap.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
