    Just a little note before we begin that you must have winterboard installed before performing this tutorial

    Step 1: SSH in to your ipod touch (if you are unsure of how to do this fallow this tutorial here)


    Step 2: go up one directory

    good luck.
    the best part is that you can preview all the themes much faster then in cydia.

    Great post. Alot of people should find this very usefull.

    the only thing that I dont like about themes from Winterboard, is the lack of skinning ability. You can Skin/Theme WAY more with the use of Customize and Winterboard, and its alot easier.
