    My firmware is 1.1.4. I installed SummerBoard on my iPod and I put in some themes through WinSCP. Then I go to SummerBoard and try to set those themes but it will not work. The themes are there but when I try to set them, my home screen does not change, only the wallpaper does. It would change to my default wallpaper. Nothing else would, not the icons or anything. And before anyone asks, my permissions are set to 0755. Can some one help?

    Yes, switch those things on like tian said above, but you may also need to install the fix from installer. Add this source: ipodtouched.net/repo.xml and then install the SMB Themes Fix.

    Have the same problem. Tried what awal suggested above and that didn't fix my problem. Any other suggestions?

    I would try two things, first set the permissions for the theme and make sure you set the group or set them recursively so the entire contents of the folder gets changed, and secong do the same for Springboard.app in COreservice and then restart/

    Try setting permissions here to 777. Include anything inside the folder (recursive)

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app

    ORLY?

    I didn't see your post. Anyway, that is where the Springboard.app is located.

    I'm sorry if this is a noob question, but how do I set these permissions? I know what 777 means b/c I know how to set permissions to a website and such, but I am not sure I know how I can browse the iTouch to set permissions to a folder. I am on a Mac if that matters.

    Thanks!

    Use Cyberduck and select the folder or file and then Get Info. Make sure you check the Set Permissions Recursively box so the entire folder will be changed if that's what you need.
