    Arrow Theme download help
    Okay so im new to the iPhone world so forgive me.

    I have a iPhone unlocked with 2.0 and winterboard. I want to get themes from the download section on this WONDERFUL site to my phone. I downloaded my first one a second ago to my Windows XP pc. Now how do I get the theme to my phone? Thanks in advance!!

    You have to SSH into the phone and manually place the theme in its respectful directory, search for Winterboard if you not sure.

    Otherwise, there are a few on Cydia you can download straight to the phone.

    You need to SSH into your iPhone (guide), and then place the theme folder in /Library/Themes. If your theme name was "Realize," then you would put all the files, such as icons and Docks, in /Library/Themes/Realize. Then open Winterboard, apply your theme, press the home button, and your phone should respring. When it goes back the the Slide to Unlock screen, your theme should be applied.

    ^^ You have to install "BSD Subsystem" and "SSH" on your phone. Both should be somewhere on Cydia.

    If the theme name is "Realize," then you should have a folder called Realize somewhere on your computer.
    When you open WinSCP, get your iPhone's IP address, and connect. After you enter your root password, which is alpine, you should be connected. This is close to what it should look like:


    Double click on Library, then scroll down, and double click on themes.


    Drag your theme into that folder. If you go into Winterboard, you should see the theme you just dragged in.

    Just drag the theme folder into /Library/Themes.
