    Can't see how this is Urgent?!!
    but....
    From installer, install Summerboard & iSwitcher, most of the themes are located there, then you can install the themes through installer.

    A lot of the themes that are on here do not show up on installer, neither does iSwitcher actually

    You have to install "Community Sources" to see all the files.

    Download and extract the Simposons folder from the archive and upload the files from their respective folders into the same folders on your iPhone using iBrickr or any other program you prefer

    if I copy over/overwritten the files with simpsons' files, can I recover the original files? how? unless I did a backup of it, otherwise I can't recover, am I correct?

    you can use iphone_browser or ibrckr to change out your themes. if you want the originals back, they are in the download sections. or you can just restore your phone using itunes but you will have to update to the newest version. in the forums, search for iphone modding 101, 102, 103. or go to www.hacktheiphone.com and it tells you how to switch icons.

    im basically in the same boat.....i understand ibrickr for the most part like adding NES and ichat and stuff like that, but when i download a theme and extract the files it doesn't ever work when i try to add stuff into summerboard or iswitch. i've searched for a while and i still can't find anything thats telling me exactly how to do it. can anyone please help?

    The TinkerBell theme is setup (more or less) as a model of the iPhone's filesystems with replacement files in the appropriate folders.

    Using iPhoneBrowser, you can drag and drop the folders to the root of your phone to have them copied to the right location. However, some folders, like ~SOUNDS, don't exist on the iPhone and you must replace individual files if you want to use the sounds. iPhoneBrowser has a Replace File command you can use on a file on the iPhone to replace it with a file from your PC.
    iPhoneBrowser also makes a backup copy of all files that it replaces (though, it puts them in too many separate directories in the current version), so you can restore the files.

    If you use install and start iSwitcher first, you will have a backup of your current files and can use iSwitcher to restore them. It covers most files a theme would replace.
