I have seen a few pictures around the net... and i cam across this picture (below) and i absolutely love it. I have done numerous searches and have ended up back where i started.

So if anyone know's how this is done then i really appreciate it.


Thanks in advance-

If you haven't already...jailbreak your phone.
1) open cydia tap the search tab at the bottom of the screen
2) type in five column springboard (really the word five should be enough)
3) Tap on the description
4) tap install in the upper right corner
5) tap on confirm in the upper right corner
6) that's it, do what it tells you from there, respring, reboot, whatever.

Sorry I don't use it, it's a little too cluttered for me. But using the same search parameters you should be able to find some.

Is there a different repo for the five column section in cydia, I don't have it!?

This is really frustrating.

I do not think there is a five column section in cydia, the five-column springboard is in Ste's repo, the themes will probably be scattered through different repos, you will just have to wade through them.

Your theme is cool bro,

Thanks for the repo's

I'm having problems changing the time section on the status bar... You know anyway I can edit this, see my first post in this thread, where it says dave (heart) toni - I want something similar, you know how to do this?

Yes, I do.

Go onto Cydia and search for MakeItMine. It allows you to change the writing on the status bar, and to get the heart, you need the emoji keyboard, which you can also get off cydia.

Oh, and my theme is a ps3 theme, but you need to add a source to get it, and I can't remember the source.

Alive- It's quite smart.

I'm on a mad one with modifications at the minute, my journey to get my phone just right seems miles and miles away.

for example i see your signal bars in the above pic (even though it's actually numbers) and i want to know how it's done. I'm really keen to know more.

See your springboard itself, where the wallpaper on it is a black background with the white towards the centre- Is there a way you can keep my current theme, but change the wallpaper and dock?

I can use ssh (as i'm sure it has something to do with that). Any advice would would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

iPhonewarrior, if you SSH into your iPhone/ipod and locate the theme you are using, you can delete the wallpaper and replace it with a picture of whatever you like.
