    1. Download customize from here http://customizeapp.com/uploads/rele...mize-2.1.1.zip

    2. Unzip and extract customize.

    3. SSH it to your ipod to /Applications. It has to be here no were else will work!

    4. Now install terminal from cydia. (or just use putty or terminal to copy an past the commands from here) I just like using the terminal on my phone because its cool

    5. In the terminal type these command one by one and hit return after each set of commands. Make sure you Capitalize whats capitalized and space were needed. If the command are not entered exactly as they are here they it will not work. Dont type (hit return)

    su root (hit return)

    alpine (hit return)

    cd /Applications/ (hit return)

    chmod -R 777 Customize.app (hit return)

    cd Customize.app/ (hit return)

    chmod a+s Custom* (hit return)

    killall SpringBoard (hit return)

    6. Now go to var/mobile/library/customize2 and set the permissions to 777 make sure you do it to everything inside that folder and every subfolder inside customize2. If you cant figure out how to do this then I don't know what to tell you. I'm trying to keep this short and simple.

    7. Go here and register an account. http://customizeapp.com/

    8. Login on that site and go to "my profile"

    9. Were it says "Serial Number" put your ipods Serial Number. It can be found on your ipod in preferences under "about" once you've done that hit save.

    10. Now back to your ipod and launch customize! There you go have fun!!!


    This worked for me and may not work for people who can not follow directions or it could just be some other problem.

    It might also be a good idea to use bosstools before you do this.

    Also not everything works. I cant get it to change wallpapers on the springboard and it doesnt always apply the themes correctly. I have alo had problems downloading themes.

    Make sure everything in customize.app has 777 permissions.
