    I downloaded some themes from this site, and I have NO IDEA where to put the dock, background, etc.

    Could someone please tell me (a directory on my ipot) where I put the stuff?

    Thanks in advance.

    Before you can put any theme onto your ipod, you should have Summerboard. After that, it's pretty easy.

    From there, just FTP into your ipod and input the following directory: "/private/var/root/Library/SummerBoard" Capitalization matters.

    You should see a folder named "Themes". Open it and go back to the folder you have the theme in. You can either copy the folder, or copy the contents of the folder into a new one on your ipod. The only requirement is that the theme has it's own folder. Be sure that the theme you have has all the required parts (Icons, Dock, etc.) The icons should have their own folder inside of the Themes folder. So the entire thing should look like this.

    -Themes
    --Theme Title
    --dock.png
    --wallpaper.png
    --thumbs.db
    ---Icons

    Hope this has been of help.

    I believe SummerBoard comes from the Installer.app on a jailbroken iPOD.

    you need to have SSH on your ipod, and a program that can FTP to your ipod, such as CuteFTP
