    Hi guys,

    I am new and very confused on how to install themes.

    I have already jailbroken my Ipod Touch 2g and also installed the Winterboard application.

    Right now, I am having troubles trying to figure out how to install themes from my computer to the ipod. I am saying that there are some really nice themes posted on this forum. So how do I, then, transfer these themes to my Ipod?

    If there's a need to install something called OpenSSH on cydia, I have already done that. But other than that, I am pretty stuck.

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Why not download them in Cydia and save yourself the trouble of transferring to iPod from a computer.

    First, you have to download and install WinSCP. Here's a tutorial:

    Then download the theme you want and transfer it to /Library/Themes
    Then it will appear on winterboard, choose it and there you have it

    You may also have to 775 some of the files..

    Thanks for all the prompt reply, guys.

    I shall try Winscp asap.

    By the way, I have downloaded a few themes via Cydia. However, I noticed that there are some really nice skins which I can't seem to find on Cydia.. So yeap.

    Oh, is there another way to preview themes thru Cydia? And how do I delete the themes that I have downloaded from Cydia?

    Most themes on Cydia when you go to download them have an option to view 'screenshots' which will give you an idea as to what your downloading. To delete them: first, in winterboard, disable them, then open cydia, click, manage, then packages, then scroll down to the theme and click it.
