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 -->

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!
