    Don't worry about what it is...complete and total understanding isnt necessary

    you need to find an SSH client, for windows use WinSCP (google it ) or for Mac, try Cyberduck

    when you have either of those, give me a shout and i'll walk you through it

    if you can't find CyberDuck, there are other programs you can try...for now i'll post a walkthrough for Cyberduck

    Once you have the program up and running, click the 'Open Connection' button. You should get a new window drop down asking for some info.

    for protocol, select 'SFTP (SSH Secure blah blah blah)'
    for Server, you need to type your iPhone/iPoT IP address...you can find this by going into your system settings (on your iPhone), Wifi settings, and hitting the blue arrow next to your connection
    for UserName, type in 'root' (no speech marks)
    for Password, type in 'alpine' (no speech marks)
    Leave all the other info as it is, and click connect

    you should now have access to your iphone, and should see a pair of folders well done, your looking at the files on your iphone

    you then need to navigate to /private/var/mobile/library/summerboard/themes if your new themes arent there, you need to put them there

    Installer will automatically download any new themes you choose to /private/var/root/library/summerboard/themes. You'll have to cut them from this directory and paste them into the correct directory

    (green = the right directory, red is the wrong one )

    hmmm...make sure your iphone is active...no black screen, no lock screen whilst you're connecting?

    edit: oh, and do you have the BSD sub system and OpenSSH installed on your iPhone? you can get both via installer

    make sure you have OpenSSH/BSD sub system installed on your iphone...if you've followed all of the above steps, once you click connect, you should get a pop up message. (click yes, ok, accept...cant remember what the pop up message is from the top of my head ) and you should be in...

    EDIT wahey! let me know how you get on

    hmmm...very odd! definately in private/var/MOBILE/library/summerboard/themes?

    at this point you're out of my league i can only suggest uninstalling summerboard, reinstalling and trying again

    unusual... permissions are never an issue when i transfer themes i guess your phone's more secure than mine

    glad it worked bonus, you can manually install themes you might not be able to find on installer for example (shameless advertising ) here
