    How to install:

    Cydia: Search for "Black Light" and "Black Light SB". They should be hosted on the ModMyI repo. 3.4 is on Cydia.

    Computer/SSH: Download here (mirror) for the Current Version (3.4). For previous versions, refer here.

    Copy the folder "BlackLight 2" to "/var/stash/Themes.y0szib/"
    Copy the folder "BlackLightSB v3.1" to "/var/mobile/Library/SBSettings/Themes/"
    Then activate in Winterboard and SBSettings.

    Template here. Tutorial for icon creation: YouTube.

    NOTE: This theme was designed for using Categories, Five Column Springboard, Five-Icon Dock, and MobileMusic Flip (MMP Flip on Cydia). It looks best with these packages installed from Cydia. Keep in mind that if you do not have MobileMusic Flip, the video icon will be the same as it's categories icon.

    Screenshots are attached to the post.

    Created by users treminaor and bloodflow. Credit goes to [wear] for the Macbook Black Keyboard. (which doesn't work for 3.0)

    Do you happen to know if I have to configure the folder of the theme or add a .txt that tells Cydia where to put the folders?

    i think a good word for this is meh, the icons/dock/wallpaper are very bland and the rest of it is mostly just desaturated
