    Hello There. This is a Fairly Short Guide. on What to do, After you've jailbroken!

    I will Refer to the Jailbreak as JB or JBed as Jailbroken.

    After you have Jbed the first thing you notice will be Cydia sitting there. Depending on what Program you used. You might also see Installer.

    First Stages of Customization

    Now, You've heard so much about themes and different tricks and tweaks. Lets get some started!

    You might have wanted to Change your Carrier and Banner (Currently will say iPod with the Time in the middle)
    There is a App to do this. It is called MakeItMine (Referred to MIM Sometimes)
    You simply need to search it in Cydia. Or, Go to Sections and in Utilities i do believe it is in there.

    Widgets:
    Widgets can be great. And really make your iPod looks the piece. But might also slow things down. So be careful!

    Themeing:
    To Add Themes, You will need Winterboard. This SHOULD Auto install when you download your first theme. So lets get started. I would suggest you try about Cloud 9 first. Simply search for it in Cydia. Or If you want to try sometime different go to Sections then Themes Complete. Or what eber you want to theme (Dock, Lock Screen, Ect)

    Now you have Downloaded the theme. And Winterboard. You wanna set it, Right? Now you should see a Blue logo on your home screen. It'll say Winterboard. Simply single tap it. And Select the theme you wish to apply. NOTEj: If you have Multiple themes. And you simply tick a theme without un-ticking the theme you had set before. It will just keep the current theme.

    You can always checkout the section of theming and customization, also Jailbroken Apps. on This section.

    Jailbroken Apps

    You've probably heard a bit about the apps made for jbed devices.

    Categories:
    This allows you to put all your Apps into folders. Instead of taking up loads of Screens. EG: Games, Tools, Misc. I have those

    Simply Search this is Cydia. Don't worry if you can't find it. I will tell you how to add all sources later.

    iBlank:
    I love this app. It allows you to make blank icons on your SpringBoard (Home screen) This lets you have custom layouts. So say have all your icons in a shape. Or just down the side. w/e

    Emulators, I am not the best with these, And know very little about them. But I've found a a guide: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16429

    FontSwap:

    Allows you to change lock screen, System, dialer, and Notes fonts.

    There is Loads more Apps. I mean Loads! Check out this section for more.

    SSH

    SSH is something you can use to access all your ipods files, that are not visible from your computer. This is Done over WiFi. So you can add Themes you've downloaded on your Comp. Some from this Site! and Apps.

    here is a link on how to do it, Not made by me! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2Gah8jV9G0

    Extras

    I did say i would tell you how to Add all sources in Cydia. Did i not?

    So here is how!

    You will need to add the SISiphone source. Fire up Cydia, on home, Go to More package sources. Add SOSiPhone. Once that is done. Return to Cydia. And go to Sections> Repositories. Steffwizz Then once you got that, go to search and search for All Sources. This SHOULDj work.

    Got Problems even getting Cydia to Work?

    I had this when i first Jbed. I Was trying on my ipod for ages. It would not load anything abut about 5 sections, and would not let me even add any Source! But later about 40 mins later, It asked me to update. it did, and then i got more sources, Then i did the TUT Above.

    iPod Running Kinda Slow? (RAM LOW?)

    Then here is the Guide for you!

    Click


    Want more Themes? or wanna Practice SSH-Ing?
