    I am totally new to JB. I have a jb ipt3g 32gb. I still have not figured out how to use Cydia. I was wondering how to install and "activate" themes. I recently downloaded a theme and have not been able to use it.

    Thanks for your help and patience.

    Ok first you need to go into cydia and wait out the painful loading time. Then you need to search winterboard and install it and your iPod will reboot. Then after that go into cydia again and download the theme you want. Finally go into winterboard and activate the theme you want. It will respring and it will be themed. Beware though it uses a lot of battery life.

    guys if hes totally new hes gonna flip when he reboots and his ipod doesn't work, your gonna have to re-ailbreak with blackra1n after installing winterboard, its just the same procedure as the first time, i think. I dont have a tethered device so im not sure, thats all you need right?

    I already have winterboard downloaded. I have already downloaded the theme. once you open winterboard what do you do? It, like the rest of cydia stuff just has things like author, donate, how to make, and change settings. ???

    yea so revtup: whe you install winterboard and reboot, you have to re-jailbreak with blackra1n and all ur stuff will stay, then the theme will be in there and follow the directions that yankeesSuck said. BTW, yankeessuck, can u count to 27?
