    1.1.4

    1. install BSD subsystem
    (from list of apps available from Installer)

    2. install OpenSSH
    (from list of apps available from Installer)

    3. Get a SFTP program to SSH to your iphone from your computer
    (If using a MAC try FuGu or Transmit. If using a PC try WinSCP? or iPhoneBrowser?)
    http://www.versiontracker.com/php/qs...=all&submit=Go

    4. SFTP settings: Server will be your IP address of your iphone, User = root, password = dottie or alpine.
    (get your iphones IP address from Settings->Wifi->click the arrow next to the wifi network you are connected to. you'll then see your IP address)

    5. Summerboard themes go in var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/Themes/ , this is the directory you'll place your themes. each theme should have it's own folder.

    Are you jailbroken? Then you just have to start Cydia and install Winterboard. Find the theme you want in Cydia, download it, exit out of Cydia and start Winterboard. The theme will show up in Winterboard and all you have to do is check it off by touching its name and exit out of Winterboard. Then your phone will respring and you will have your theme.

    • Open up Cydia.
    • Download a program called Winterboard.
    • Browse through the Sections tab in Cydia and you will find tons of themes.
    • Download a theme and then exit out of Cydia.
    • From your springboard, launch Winterboard and your theme will show up there.
    • Touch the theme name so that it gets a checkmark next to it.
    • Exit out of Winterboard and it will load.
