Introduction: How to Install Themes on a Jailbroken IPhone or IPod Touch

How To Install Themes On A Jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch using the summerboard application.

Step 1: Install Summerboard

To do this you will first need a jailbroken iphone or iPod Touch. If you do not have one check out my instructable on how to do so here -->

https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-jailbreak-your-1.1.4-or-lower-iPhone-or-iPo/.

First you need to install summerboard, an application that allows you install custom themes for springboard. To get to this go to installer, then to the install tab , then to the system folder to find it.

Step 2: Restart Your IPhone or IPod Touch

You must restart your device to activate summerboard. It will not work unless you do this.

Step 3: Install a Theme

An icon called "SMB Prefs" will now appear, do not use it yet. Next you need to install a theme. To do this, go to the install tab, then to "themes (summerboard)".

Step 4: Change the Theme

Go back to the homescreen and open "SMB Prefs". Next, go to the theme tab and select the theme you want to use.

Step 5: Respring

Go back to the homescreen and wait for your device to respring...

Your new theme is installed with custom backrounds and icons!

It's called Winterboard now. Us who jailbroke our iPhones/iPod Touches with redsn0w got Cydia, and we only have Winterboard. It's much better though.
