    Hello all,
    I'm new to the site. Do anyone know how to make themes and icons? Is there a guide out there? I would like to learn how to create some, I have some pretty good ideals for themes and would like to try and make them. If anyone could help I would appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance

    How to SFTP Winterboard themes 2.0

    1. install OpenSSH
    (from list of apps available from Cydia)

    2. install winterboard
    (from list of apps available from Cydia)

    3. Get a SFTP program to SSH to your iphone from your computer
    (MAC FuGu--Wiki Guide ) CyberDuck also works well, but I use "Transmit"

    4. SFTP settings: Server will be your IP address of your iphone, User = root, password = dottie or alpine.
    (get your iphones IP address from Settings->Wifi->click the arrow next to the wifi network you are connected to. you'll then see your IP address)

    5. Winterboard themes go in /Library/Themes/ , this is the directory you'll place your themes. each theme should have it's own folder.

    I'm using Transmit, I got it connected. There is not a theme folder in Library. I'm in private/var/root/Library I have 5 folders address book, cookies, keyboard, lockdown and preference. I installed Cydia and winterboard. I have a theme on my phone now. Did I miss a step?
