    when you instal winterboard, your device resprings so only the springboard restarts but not the entire device. SSH can be used to install themes if you download them on your pc and it can be used to install themes you made yourself. but there are more advantages to SSH besides themes.

    SSH is pretty much just managing the files on your ipod. I think.

    Actually, if you want to download winterboard without having to rejailbreak or it messing up, you have to download SBsettings first, and it is activated by swiping the top ipod bar, and when winterboard is done downloading, when it says restart springboard or reboot device, activate sbsettings and press respring, then Winterboard will be there.
    Example of SBsettings (may not have the same arrangement of icons):

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it'll ask you to reboot the device.

    You can do this, but there is nothing wrong with rebooting. You will just need to run blackra1n and 'make it ra1n' again to turn it back on. You will NOT lose anything, it'll be as if you turned it off and turned it back on.
