    Is it possible to install winterboard without Cydia or Wi-Fi? I have Cydia but not wi-fi...which pretty much deems Cydia useless atm. I was just wondering if its possible to install Winterboard without having to use Wi-Fi. I downloaded a Winterboard.deb file, but I'm nt sure how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    it'd be easy to do if you had the .deb file. but i'm not sure where you can find it (though i'm sure you could)

    same, i have the .deb file. instructions?
    Mr Deftino: You might want to download iphonebrowser or total commander (also search T-Pot and DL that and plug it into total commander). It let's us non-SSHers be able to add/delete/edit files on our ipods.

    You probably can. It would just be very very complicated.

    sorry, was skimming;

    you have to have terminal access and root user privilages;
    run this command,

    dpkg -i /Library/winterboard.deb

    or whereever it is, or whatever it's called. remember capitalization is important. gl
