Winterboard themes using Terminal

Posted by onlydarksets on September 30, 2008

I don’t have wifi at work, so I can’t SFTP into my iPhone to update the theme.  My *nix skills are a bit rusty (has it changed since 1995?), so here’s my cheatsheet.

Of course, you must jailbreak first.  Also, make sure you have terminal and curl installed.

  1. Upload the new icon file somewhere and note the URL
  2. Open Terminal
  3. Change to root user (“su root”)
  4. Navigate to Themes directory (“cd /Library/Themes”)
  5. Navigate to the folder you want to put the file into (“cd ODS.theme”)
  6. Use curl to download the file and save it locally (“curl -o file.png”)
That’s it!
