    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)

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

    a good ssh app to use for windows is winSCP once you get the bsd subsystem and then openssh and the other package it might take up to 10min or so for the ssh to authenticate key's it did for mine but now it works pretty good

    I would reccommend iPhoneBrowser. Use the dropdown menu to get to the Summerboard themes. Right click on themes, create a folder, add the wallpaper, dock, and status bar if they are included. Then right click on that newly created folder make a new folder named Icons, then just add the icons and your done.

    I personally agree with ajl, iPhoneBrowser is the easiest interface with the simplest way to drag and drop.

    iPhoneBrowser works great with Windows...

    Using iPhoneBrowser, if the theme is already in a SummerBoard format (with the right files and an Icons folder) you can just drag and drop the entire folder into the Themes folder on the phone to copy everything.

    yo ajl917 i did wat u said and .. the theme has the wallpaper but doesnt have the icons

  19. #18
    I see there are 3 different downloads for the iPhonebrowser App here at MMi
    iPhoneBrowser (exe only)

    Which one do I use?
    Does this work on FW 1.0.2?
    This doesn't require WiFi does it?

    Many thanks!

    Go to google. And google iPhoneBroswer v1.4. Thats the newest version. It works with any jailbroken iPhone, and does not need a Wi-Fi connection.

    ^^ Thanks Reako!

    Do you know if its possible to to edit a Summerboard theme currently on my phone, say I liked the Icon Set but wanted to change just the wallpaper? Can I just move a new wallpaper into that theme's folder and just chose to replace it.
