    Can someone guide me through the process of getting themes onto my ipod from openssh.

    I am very new to this so I need to know from the point to not haveing the theme on my computer, to having the downloaded theme on my ipod ready to go.

    Im not an idiot. I have been searching for the last couple hours and haven't found anything helpful for my knowledge about doing this. Everything about downloading themes just seems a little bit confusing to me.

    When I download the theme, it is a zip file, is that okay?

    I've known idiots who could do this...

    Spoonforknife made a tut on how to SSH, find it.

    For themes:
    1)Download theme
    2)Extract (if compressed) to either a folder or .theme file
    3)SSH into private/var/stash/Themes.(whatever)
    4)Apply (you might need to respring or reboot if you just installed Winterboard)
