    Same concept. Update first, then goto packages.

    Look for WinterBoard in Cydia.

    Ok I'm back from a long day at work. Now, how come my themes aren't working? I don't know anything about Cydia or if I have to load an app in order for this to work. What next?

    never mind I shut down and rebooted and I got the themes. My next question is How do I install themes?

    Umm...

    Either open Cydia and go to Packages, select the package that you want, and download it. Or open Cydia, tap Search, type in the package you want, and download it.

    If you did that, you need to fully reboot your device before Winterboard will work.

    Thanks SkylarEC. Is Cydia the same as Installer as far as SSH into it and adding and taking out stuff? I miss installer. I'm so used to it instead of Cydia.
