Written By Unknown on Friday, August 21, 2009 | 9:21 PM


Tired of the default iPod Touch or iPhone theme? Want a nice looking theme for your iPod Touch or iPhone? Get Whitoken! You have to jailbreak to get this theme, but it's totally worth it. See a screenshot of this theme below. As you can see it looks very nice on the iPod Touch/iPhone. This theme was created by 6mik-design.

In this post I will show you how you can get this theme on your iPod Touch or iPhone.

How to Install Whitoken on your iPod Touch or iPhone

You will need to first jailbreak, then install WinterBoard, and then add additional applications in order to install this theme. I will guide you through the process.

Part 1: Jailbreak and Install Cydia

In this part I will show you how to jailbreak and install Cydia on your iPod Touch/iPhone.

1. Download redsn0w, and check our guide on how to jailbreak your iPod Touch or jailbreak your iPhone.

2. You should see the above Cydia icon on your  homescreen. Tap the Cydia icon.

3. When Cydia first launches it will ask you to choose what mode you want to use.  Just tap User (Graphical Only). You can go back and change this later if you wish to.

Cydia Essential Upgrades

4. Cydia will now check for updates and present you with the above prompt saying something like 2 Essential Upgrades. Tap the "Upgrade Essential" button.

Cydia Upgrade - Confirm

5. Now Cydia will ask you to confirm your selection. Tap the Confirm button in the top right.

Part 3: Add the required repositories to Cydia

The Whitoken theme requires you to download additional applications from  Cydia. By default Cydia already has all the repositories you need, except for the Touch-Mania repository which is required for this theme. Adding a repository is simple, and I will show you how to do it in this page.

1.  Open Cydia.

Cydia - Manage Tab

2. Tap the Manage tab. Once you get there, tap the Sources button in the middle.

4. After tapping the Edit button, tap the Add button and type enter the following Cydia/APT URL: http://cydia.touch-mania.com/. After typing, press the Add button. Cydia will now add the Cydia/APT URL you entered.

Return to Cydia

5.  Once Cydia has added the repository, it will say Complete. Tap the Return to Cydia button once you see this message.

You need to create 4 categories for your iPhones using the Categories application. This post will show you how to do this.

Cydia - Categories Icon

1. Find the Categories application and tap it.

2. An about message will pop up. Just tap the OK button.


3. Tap the Add button in the top right corner.

Categories Home Folder

4. Type in Home and tap Add.

Categories - Icon for Home Folder

5. A screen titled Icon For: Home will come up, chose any icon and tap on it.

Categories Home(0)

6. You will now see a Folder which says Home (0) on your screen.

Editing Home Folder

7. Tap the Home folder and then tap the Add button on the top right to add applications to the Home category.

Home Folder - Tap to Add

8. A Tap to add screen should show up. Tap and add any application you want in to the Home category. This theme will have four applications per page, so do not add applications that you want to appear on your pages in to any folders. There will be a total of 16 applications that you should not put in to any folder. Here is an example list of applications you should not add:

  • Preferences

  • MobileSafari

  • MobileMail

  • MobileAddressBook

  • Music

  • Photos

  • Videos

  • Remote (if you have this)

  • Cydia

  • Winterboard

Categories Home - Confirm

9. Tap the Done button on the top left once you are done. Another screen will show up asking you to confirm your apps, if you added the right ones then tap Done.

10. Now you should be back at the Categories home screen. The Home folder should say Home(x), where x is the number of apps you have in this folder.

11. It's time to create the other folders. I'm just going to tell you what folders to create below, make sure you add every application in them except for 4 applications for each category (I listed apps I didn't add in step 8, you can use it as an example. ) . There should be a total of 16 apps that are not added to any folder. Here are the other folders you should add:

  • Media

  • Apps

  • Games

12. Once you're done creating the categories and folders, exit the Categories application. Make sure you have only 3 icons on your dock. If you don't then hold down an icon for any application and put it on the dock.

Part 6: Configuring Settings

Part 6: Configuring Settings

In this part you will need to activate FiveIRows, activate Hidespringdots, and configure the SpringJumps app settings. Read on to find out how to do this.
1. Open the FiveIRows app.

FiveIRows On

2. Tap FiveIRows and Hide SpringDots so they switch to ON. Once you've done that you can close this app.

3. Open the SpringJumps app.

4. Under Preferences, tap General.

SpringJumps Pages

7. Slide the buttons for Pages 4 through 8 to OFF. Leave Pages 0 through 3 ON.

Part 7: SSH Time!

When you SSH for the first time it takes some time for WinSCP to login. Make sure your iPod Touch/iPhone is connected.

5. A Window saying "WARNING - POTENTIAL SECURITY BREACH" will pop up. Just click the Update button.

6. If you're asked for your password, enter alpine and then click OK.

7. Now minimize the WinSCP window, and Download the Whitoken theme. Open the Whitoken ZIP file, and extract all the files to a folder named Whitoken on your Desktop.

8. Go back to WinSCP and on the left hand window locate your Whitoken folder where you extracted all the files.

9. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications. Copy all the files named _shortcutx_x.app from the Whitoken folder to this directory.

Part 8: Making Blank Icons & Rearranging

Part 8: Making Blank Icons & Rearranging

Now you need to make 44 blank icons on your iPod Touch/iPhone.

1. Open the iBlank app.

iBlank - 44 Blank icons

2. You need to create 44 blank icons, so click the button "10" 4 times, and then click the button "4" 1 time. You can use whatever combination you want, as long as you end up with 44 blank icons.

Screenshot page 0Screenshot Page 1Screenshot Page 2Screenshot Page 3

3. Now you need to rearrange the blank icons for each page too look like the above images. It will take a while to do it. Hold down the icons and drag them and try to make each page look like the screenshots above.

Part 9 - The Final Part: Folder Settings, SSH, and Theme Activation

Part 9 - The Final Part: Folder Settings, SSH, and Theme Activation

Finally! This is the last part. You need to apply a setting to each folder you created, then upload the Whitoken theme file using SSH, and then activate the Whitoken theme through Winterboard. Follow these steps below.

Home folder

1. Tap the Home folder, and then tap the i button in the bottom right corner.

Settings for each Folder

2. Use the settings in the above picture and apply it to each and every folder.

3. SSH in to your device using WinSCP. Upload the Whitoken by6MIK.theme folder from your Whitoken folder to /private/var/stash/Themes.

4. Open the Winterboard app.

Whitoken - Winterboard selection

5. Tap Whitoken by 6Mik. Also make sure you tap No Undocked Icon Labels and the No Docked Icon Labels.

Whitoken - Final Theme

6. Exit the WinterBoard app and the new theme will be applied. Congratulation, enjoy your new iPod Touch/iPhone theme. You can see how mine looks above. I'll be recreating mine since I didn't arrange my icons the way I wanted to. Remember to thank 6-mikdesign for this, he put a lot of work in to creating this.

The icons don't fit in the designated spaces.

August 22, 2009 at 6:30 AM

Thanks for the guide! I know you threw it together pretty fast, and youve been editing it, as I read it.

I have some problems, one being the spring jump icons, I only have 0-3 on one page, yet you have them on multiple pages, how do I make more of these?

August 22, 2009 at 6:43 AM

Edit: I have 2 Applications folders in my ipod. One was .pwn and one was . OuXstc the.pwn one was the correct one to put the _shortcut folders in

August 22, 2009 at 7:03 AM

Done now, looks great.

I had to go in and make my own _shortcut3_X.app to make i for the fourth page.

Did I miss something, or did you give us 3 sets of icons for 4 pages?

(Home, Media, Apps, Games)

Tried using "http://cydia.touch-mania.com/" and got error messages.
Tried "http://cydia.touch-mania.com" and it appears to work.

August 22, 2009 at 8:39 AM

hey matt, i had the same problems as you. i tried to add my own shortcut_x.apps but it didn't work. how did you do it? i just tried to rename them but nothing.

iPod touch 1G (2.2 latest update) locks up when I install fivelrows gui and now I notice that you have fivelrows no gui listed as well.

Any hints on how to proceed?

I've had to restore it 4 times now.

August 22, 2009 at 9:06 AM

I'm getting confused with the folders stuff (Categories app).
In step 8 of part 5 you say "so do not add applications that you want to appear on your pages in to any folders there is" but then in the very next screenshot you show that you've added the exact 4 applications to home that you just said not to add. Now, at first I thought I was just misinterpreting the screenshot. However, in part 8 where you show how to rearrange the icons, on the 1st (phone/home) screen you put the icons for settings, safari, contacts, mail _and_ the home folder, _but_ aren't these icons suppose to be _in_ the home folder? Which is exactly what you show in the last part, but how can they be both in the folder and outside of it?

What am I missing?

August 22, 2009 at 9:10 AM

I made a mistake in that screenshot, sorry for the confusion. Just follow the written instructions and you'll be fine.

How do you get the jump page 0-3 to appear on every page?? I have those icons in one page...

Jon Kim
August 22, 2009 at 9:23 AM

Nvm I figured it out. On SpringJumps under General prefs "page titles" should be on.

August 22, 2009 at 9:47 AM

Thanks, that's pretty much what I figured, and it worked :)

I now understand a bit more how this theme works - e.g. categories at the top aren't "dynamic". I wanted to create my own categories (apps, tools, games) but is still shows up media, apps, games :)

I'm gonna have to dig into it and try to figure out how to modify it to suit my needs.

Anyway, great work on this guide. If Apple spent as much effort on creating a flexible skinning system as you did on this tutorial, maybe you wouldn't have to do it.

Thank you.

August 22, 2009 at 10:20 AM

The reason why the catagpries get renamed and the icons change no matter what u do is the theme has a setting and icon set to the category. So it'll always show up the same. No matter how you configure the name and icon of the category

August 22, 2009 at 11:32 AM

can someone please help me with this everytime i try to connect with WinSCP it can never connect i tried it over 250 times and it keeps tellin me "network error: network is unreachable" and i put in the ip address that the touch tells me i really want this theme so can someone please help me with it (i am using ipod touch v2 running 3.0)

August 22, 2009 at 11:48 AM

Did you download and install OpenSSH from Cydia?

August 22, 2009 at 12:23 PM

On the C-NET video for the iPhone 3GS, I found that around 1:20 the iPhone has a battery percentage thing which you can only get by jailbreaking. See for yourself. The URL is http://cnettv.cnet.com/9745-1_53-212.html?tag=smallCarouselArea.3

August 22, 2009 at 12:54 PM

In each of those folders there a file called info.plist

I opened that in notepad, and changed the line


where 3.1 means the 3_1 folder, 3_0 would be 3.0, and so forth

August 22, 2009 at 1:45 PM

I am doing this on my mac- what should I do for the winSCP part?

Horace Pinkerton
August 22, 2009 at 3:41 PM

Get Cyberduck and go to this link for info on how to use it with the ipod/iphone.

Remember you are going to use SFTP for transfers.
It took a little bit of fiddling, but it can be done.
Don't forget to use alpine as the password and use the IP address from your ipod/iphone (in the settings for your wifi connection.

You can use this to store files in your ipod/iphone as well.

I'm using 3.0 on a ipod touch 2nd gen. and everything worked until i exited winterboard. Half of the icons that were supposed to be there turned invisible (still work to the touch)...and nothing with the theme. Help?

Darrin Landroche
August 22, 2009 at 5:38 PM

only should show up when openSSH isn't running...

August 22, 2009 at 6:32 PM

Is there a way to cut out the animation when sliding through pages. Like instead of flowing from one page to another, is there a way to just "jump" when sliding your finger across to the next page?

August 22, 2009 at 6:46 PM

Thank you so much for putting this guide up! I love it! Just follow the instructions and you'll do fine. Oh, and if you're on a mac and need an ssh client, use cyberduck, free, and I found it easy to use.

August 22, 2009 at 6:54 PM

i keep adding whitoken by 6mik but it wont show up on winterboard. i followed all other steps exactly. help? im using 2nd gen itouch with 3.0

August 22, 2009 at 11:18 PM

This happens for me as well, and i have also restored and re-jailbreaked 4 times. From my experience the fiverows no GUI works, can i use that instead?

A mightily impressive theme (and a good install guide too)

Any chance of a quick and easy uninstallation for when I inevitably get bored of it though?

August 23, 2009 at 12:01 AM

How do you get the jump page 0-3 to appear on every page? I have those icons in one page…
I tried everything...
Did someone get this theme to work on iPhone 2G?
And Im little confused about rearranging icons on pages, with you screenshot instructions...
What if Im using an iPhone, and I have iPod icon, and Voice Memo... What would I do with them?
And on the 3rd page what I do if I dont have those games you have?
PLZ help!
And tnx for the great work m8!!! ;)

August 23, 2009 at 1:45 AM

Im still having problems with the springjumps. It only shows on one page for me and ive tried everything, and looked everywhere for an answer, nothing has worked yet. any help would be appreciated

August 23, 2009 at 2:59 AM

Thanks! one more question- How do you replace icons in the theme with custom ones?

August 23, 2009 at 4:08 AM

thanks from mexico

August 23, 2009 at 4:29 AM

To replace the icons with your own
ssh into your device
go to
or var/stash/themes
and select the theme
double click the folder icons
and delete the original one and drag and drop your own icon into the folder
respring your device
(you can do this with sbsettings or unchecking and rechecking the theme in winterboard and then pressing the home button)
your theme will then have your custom icon instead of the one that came with the theme

August 23, 2009 at 4:32 AM

And by the way
the icon names ARE case sensitive
for instance. iPod is spelled iPod. Not Ipod.
All the icons except for dTunes. iTunes. iBlank. iPod begin with a capital letter

August 23, 2009 at 9:02 AM

August 23, 2009 at 10:36 PM

Can anybody explain the stap with Categories and what Apps you need to put in the created folders.

thnx =)

August 24, 2009 at 2:12 AM

It says in the guide that u make the catgories for the iPhone...so does that mean u don't make the categories for the iPod touch

August 24, 2009 at 2:44 AM

in the instructions to install the whitoken theme it says during the categories part that u make it for the iphone....does that mean i dont make categories fro the ipod touch

August 24, 2009 at 6:28 AM

iBlank shows a white screen for a few seconds whenever you open it
regardless of who I stalled it. The only exception would be the iPhone 3GS. Due to a faster processor.
Just give iblank a little time to open. It will start up
the no docked icon labels
and no undocked icon labels don't work for me
I'm on iPhone 3G running fw 3.0.1 any help guys??

August 24, 2009 at 10:03 AM

August 24, 2009 at 11:12 AM

Hey when does this come for the iPhone?

August 24, 2009 at 12:50 PM

The designer and creator of this skin explains it in his Read Me text file:

Go in /private/var/stash/Applications and copy here every "ShortcutXX.app" that i have included.

August 24, 2009 at 3:25 PM

It would be nice if this could be compiled into an "all in on." Otherwise, I really don't want to have to go through all of this.

August 24, 2009 at 4:43 PM

After installing, configuring and some tweaking with icons, everything looked perfect on my iPhone. But now when I turn on the phone the Springboard crashes every time and makes a mess of all the icons on my 4 pages.

Sorry but I have to delete this beautiful theme because of that!

August 25, 2009 at 12:08 AM

thanks, its realllllly nice

August 25, 2009 at 12:09 PM

Can someone explain how to get the 0-3 springjumps icons on every page...

August 25, 2009 at 12:27 PM

Seriously! How do you get the springjumps 0-3 on every page?

August 25, 2009 at 1:10 PM

found out how to do this. i have all the shortcuts, email and ill forward them to you

August 25, 2009 at 1:36 PM

are you doing this on a mac or pc

August 25, 2009 at 4:03 PM

Seriously can someone who went through all the steps and got this to work tell us how u got 0-3 icons on every page...this is really getting annoying. Also I'm using windows

August 25, 2009 at 4:35 PM

hey all,
I got it. There is a couple details that was not explained in here that needs to be done.

9. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications. Copy all the files named _shortcutx_x.app from the Whitoken folder to this directory.

I use cyberduck to ssh into my iphone and i have 3 application folders. #9 directs you place .app files in that application folder. Copy the same .app folders in the other two application folders as well. TURN OFF YOUR PHONE. When you reboot you will have 3 - 0s, 3 -1s and so on. Make a set for 3 pages. Follow the instructions from there. it took me 4 hours to get this right and it looks tight. I am making a 4th page, and editing the top right icon.

Hit me up at dm@d213.com if you need more help. I KNOW HOW YOU GUYS FEEL. ALMOST GAVE UP.


August 25, 2009 at 6:33 PM

can not get the springboard icons on all pages please help me!!! email me at chris.knittel@gmail.com

August 26, 2009 at 12:24 AM

Hey guys I’ve gone through all the steps and all is fine apart from the original dock at the bottom is covering the Whitoken dock, could someone help me with this please?

Reverend Morgue
August 26, 2009 at 2:27 AM

Not sure if this was already answered but to get the SpringJump icons on every page you have to have done the SSH/SFTP steps. You need to have copied the _shortcutx_x.app files out of the 6MIK installer ( http://6mik-design.deviantart.com/art/whitoken-ipod-touch-3-0-theme-133734590 )into /private/var/Applications see step 9. You will also need to do a Respring afterward...if you've SSHed in 'killall SpingBoard' will do that.

Hey dude below; double check 'transparent dock' is enabled in winterboard.

August 26, 2009 at 2:35 AM

im on a Mac

August 26, 2009 at 3:18 AM

I am having the same problem. I cant get the Icons shortcuts 0-3 to stay on every page. I thought it may have had to deal with the shortcuts that came in the download at macthemes??? anybody know?

August 26, 2009 at 4:52 AM

I posted how to get the 0-3 icons on every page.

What happened?

August 26, 2009 at 4:53 AM

hey all,
I got it. There is a couple details that was not explained in here that needs to be done.

9. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications. Copy all the files named _shortcutx_x.app from the Whitoken folder to this directory.

I use cyberduck to ssh into my iphone and i have 3 application folders. #9 directs you place .app files in that application folder. Copy the same .app folders in the other two application folders as well. TURN OFF YOUR PHONE. When you reboot you will have 3 - 0s, 3 -1s and so on. Make a set for 3 pages. Follow the instructions from there. it took me 4 hours to get this right and it looks tight. I am making a 4th page, and editing the top right icon.

Hit me up at dm@d213.com if you need more help. I KNOW HOW YOU GUYS FEEL. ALMOST GAVE UP.


August 26, 2009 at 4:56 AM

Alex, Make sure you follow #6 again. This will remove the original dock
Make sure you copy whitoken folder to all 3 application folders from the SSH

August 26, 2009 at 4:58 AM

Make sure you copy all your .apps, to all three application folders and make sure you copy Whitoken folder to all three theme folders

August 26, 2009 at 5:17 AM

You can do this now. I did and i have now have a 4th page.

You will have to duplicate "Sceenshot Page 3. png to make a page 4.png file in the "IPHONE" folder. Place them in ALL 3 stash/Application.... folders

Create _Shortcut3-0,1,2,3,4. Be sure to add 0-4, 1-4, 2-4 right now you only have 0-3 adding 0-4 and so on will add them to each page. Place them in ALL 3 stash/Application.... folders

Add a Page 4. png clear window in the ICON folder. Located in the Whitoken by 6mk.theme folder. Place them in all Theme.....folder Stash/Themes

I have done this and have zip files i could send to everyone. Please please email me at dm@d213.com and ill send you the files and where to place them in more detail.

August 26, 2009 at 5:19 AM

Copy them in every application folder from the ssh and RESTART YOUR PHONE.
3 sets will show up only when you have rebooted the phone.

August 26, 2009 at 5:21 AM

When you copy the files into your phone. You must disconnect from the SSH and reboot your phone. Meaning, turn off your phone and turn it back on, your 3 sets of shortcutx will show up for you to move them to each page.

August 26, 2009 at 6:35 AM

Thanks David but what are the directions to these 3 application folders?

August 26, 2009 at 6:41 AM

I mean the directions to the theme folders or something? dont know what I have to do lol! This is what my screen looks like
http://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=bd65785bd5&view=att&th=12356f1c77555bd4&attid=0.0&disp=inline&zw .
Could you tell me what I need to do to make it right and where the things are to do it?
Thanks very much for your help so far :D

August 26, 2009 at 7:20 AM

five rows does not seem to work! Tried restarting the phone but cant seem to get past this. any ideas!

August 26, 2009 at 7:26 AM

on the very last page of all your apps there should be 16 springjumps, 4 of each number 0-3. then put four springjumps on each of your pages. hope that helps

August 26, 2009 at 10:27 AM

From page 7:

9. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications. Copy all the files named _shortcutx_x.app from the Whitoken folder to this directory.

These are the springjump apps you're looking for.

August 26, 2009 at 3:43 PM

if you use a mac, use cyberduck. there is no winscp in a mac

August 26, 2009 at 3:44 PM

when you re-arrange icons, try to start from the top left to the bottom right. if you do it where ever you want to, its gonna take forever

August 26, 2009 at 3:47 PM

you are totally wrong on this. the theme is to look how it is supposed to look, not the way how the icons are placed. thats how every theme is.

August 27, 2009 at 5:20 AM

Thanks for Nice Theme and Awesome Tutorial.

I love it.

August 27, 2009 at 7:41 AM


k, as i said earlier, if you have put the shortcuts into the correct folder, and it still doesnt work, go into cydia, uninstall, then reinstall springjumps.

problem solved

August 27, 2009 at 11:14 AM

im having a problem insatlling iBlank, BlankNull etc..... from cydia it keeps telling me " size mitchmatch " when i try to install after i queue all of them up. any suggestions.

August 27, 2009 at 12:55 PM

If you installed BlankNull first, uninstall it and install iBlank first. then reinstall BlankNull again. That solved my problem.

August 27, 2009 at 2:50 PM

thanx, worked.

August 28, 2009 at 1:08 AM

this would be way easier with a how to YouTube vid for part 5 for the hacking impaired, like me. the only vids up are demo after install. do i or do i not put the Categories, SpringJumps, FiveIRows, iBlank Apps into a folder? what about shortscuts i added for websites? like for my banks mobile page. my email is kneegrowbboy@gmail.com, anyone willing to help please hit me up.

August 28, 2009 at 11:42 AM

When i was installing Winterboard, i got to the last part. It said to reboot and i did. Now its just start at the loading screen that you get when you turn on your phone, with the white apple. have any idea whats wrong?

August 28, 2009 at 12:39 PM

Isn't the problem that we need FOUR sets of shortcuts, not THREE? When I unzip and look in the iphone folder, you've created only 12 .app folders, not 16. If someone who as successfully installed this please provide a proper explanation, that would be great. Thanks.

August 29, 2009 at 7:46 AM

Whitoken theme download link will not work for me, please help.

August 29, 2009 at 7:51 AM

This is pretty easy.
NOT the easiest tech-thing I've done , but still.

August 29, 2009 at 9:21 AM

ummm no biggie but, WTF DO I DOWNLOAD THIS FROM!?!?

August 29, 2009 at 10:14 AM

Download using this link.

August 29, 2009 at 11:02 AM

hi, i installed the theme correctly, everything works fine (except a few icons, i am missing)

in this folder there is the smb prefs theme for whitoken.
but in which folder do i have to put it? (ssh)

August 29, 2009 at 11:18 AM

sry for doublepost, but i didnt see this problem before.
i got the normal dock of the whitoken theme, but in fron of it there is the original aluminium dock. is there a tweak or something to disable the original dock? it sucks^^

btw, i got an iphone 3gs (maybe this info helps for a solution)

August 29, 2009 at 9:09 PM

ok this tut is brilliant, but i've got a few questions...

1) Part 4 says you need to download FiveIRows GUI, but i see in the picture that FiveIRows No GUI. I tried installing both, but naturally you can only install one of them. This leads me to my next question...

2) If i install FiveIRows No GUI everything works fine until Part 6, when there is no icon to open up FiveIRows (is there a way to open it anyway?). However, if i install FiveIRows GUI my ipod reboots and stays on the apple logo "bootscreen" for 10-15 minutes, before it reboots again. So which one should i install?


August 30, 2009 at 2:51 AM

I need help with the spring jumps, only 3 of each spring page shows up and i did everything right. A little help here?

August 30, 2009 at 6:29 AM

Although the picture shows FiveIRows No GUI, you should be installing FiveIRows GUI. I made a mistake when I was creating the picture. Please follow the written instructions, and it should work for you!

August 31, 2009 at 3:23 AM

but it doesnt! I've tried this a few times and each time FiveIRows GUI messed up my ipod to an exent that i had to re-jailbreak it.
then i read somewhere that if the iNav theme works then this theme should work as well. i tried iNav and that worked perfectly! it's just the FiveIRows GUI that doesnt work but without that the theme doesnt work (does it?). i'm using an ipod 2g by the way.

Jesse Herr
August 31, 2009 at 1:53 PM

Yeah when i download the apps from cydia i get a bunch of timeout errors

Dante Cantal
August 31, 2009 at 10:53 PM

In categories, I add the ones I want or the ones I don't? haha I'm confused

Jesse Herr
September 1, 2009 at 1:16 AM

when i di the spring jumps 0-3 only show up one time each not 4 how do i do this?

Jesse Herr
September 1, 2009 at 2:23 AM

I DID IT! its cool but def. needs more icons

Dante Cantal
September 1, 2009 at 5:03 AM

Alright I finished doing all this to realize that I didn't really want it. Lol So i changed everything back except SpringJumps doesn't seem to want to leave. I disable the numbers, disable the dock, even uninstall it, but the page number icons are still there! Help please and thanks in advance.

September 1, 2009 at 4:26 PM

I did everything right until step 8, i got everything organized, but now my video icon has disappeared and the music icon has a question mark on it. Any help?,I'm using an iPod touch on 3.0.

September 1, 2009 at 4:50 PM

So I finished it, everything works well, the only thing wrong is the Music icon, and the fact that the Video is missing.

September 3, 2009 at 2:27 AM

yea man, me too, it messed it up so i had to reset it twice and then rejailbreak it but im using an ipod 1g

September 3, 2009 at 6:25 AM

So the shortcut icon and apps i have 3 sets of 4. So 12, but it shows in the pictures 4 sets of 4, I followed the instructions line by line yet I dont have enough shorcut apps. What am I missing?

September 4, 2009 at 5:20 AM

This ais really great. Im just curious WHERE do you did you put the actual "phone" icon??? I mean I think it would be best on the 1st page so that you can see missed calls and be able to press the icon to make a call. I do not see it in any of the examples above. I know I can put it wherever I want I just wonder where you put it! Thanks!

September 4, 2009 at 12:44 PM


September 5, 2009 at 1:33 AM

I cant download/install the apps because it says: posix: Operation timed out and then http:apt.bigboss.us.com POSIX: operation timed out

what am i doing wrong?

September 5, 2009 at 1:57 AM

Nevermind :)

I know what I did wrong..


Ryan Harper
September 5, 2009 at 3:25 AM

Thank you so much for this guide.
I love my new theme and had only one question...

Is there a way to have all of my applications redirected to the folders created through "Categories," or do I just need to suck it up and do it manually. Either way doesn't matter to me. This theme is beautiful and i doubt I will ever change it.

September 5, 2009 at 5:02 AM

Mind sharing how you got this to work?
Thanks in advance

September 5, 2009 at 5:12 AM


I dont know how to get the sprinsjump icons ( page 0 , page 1 etc) on every page I only have 4 of those.

please help..

September 5, 2009 at 5:41 AM

I can't figure out how to do this using cyberduck. Could you give a quick run-through?

September 5, 2009 at 6:10 AM

hey guyz. im seriously confused on step 9 on page 7 can sum1 help me pls?????? i dont understand what it means...

September 5, 2009 at 6:52 AM

Cancel that, I got it. The only problem I'm having is when I download the Whitoken theme. It doesn't give me a zip file, just a 6.6mb inoperable file. What am I doing wrong?

September 5, 2009 at 6:56 AM

It's a .rar file, try downloading from this link:

Don't have a program that opens .rar files? Download 7-Zip and unextract the files with it.

September 5, 2009 at 7:05 AM

I am on a mac, normally the computer automatically unzips any zip file. It just doesn't show up as a zip file. Do you know of a program for macintosh that I could download to try and open it with?

September 5, 2009 at 7:14 AM

I figured that out as well, haha, I should research before asking questions. The one I do have for certain, the "16" icons that shouldn't be included in the folders is that including the Docked icons?

September 5, 2009 at 8:03 AM

Deadzone, are you on a macintosh? If so, e-mail me. illneverbeyou@yahoo.com I can help you out if you still need it. I had the same problem.

September 5, 2009 at 8:35 AM

Like everyone else, I am having the large problem of only having 3 sets of 4 icons instead of all 4. The first three pages, I have everything moved and placed with blank icons but I don't have the 0,1,2,3 icons for the final page. I've moved all the shortcuts to the applications folder, respringed, restarted. Everything. I even tried to create my own but I can't figure out how.

I read something about putting the files into three different application folders but I can't find anymore. Has ANYONE found a legitimate solution to this obviously large problem?

September 5, 2009 at 9:23 AM

How do you make your own? I need to do this.

September 5, 2009 at 10:33 AM


(Regarding step 7.9)

In WinSCP, I have two folder called "Applications". I wonder which one to use?

The first one is called ""Applications.4mC6Wj" and the second is called "Applications.pwn".

I have tried to copy the files (e.g. folders) to both one them (one at a time) but neither seems to work. What should I do?

/Thanks /Oskar

FiveIrows crashed my ipod, I had to re-jailbreak twice, any ideas?

September 7, 2009 at 4:56 AM

Does this work on 3.0? And mac with cyberduck?

September 7, 2009 at 8:39 AM

Yes, it works with 3.0 and cyberduck.

September 7, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Well i cant do it on cyberduck or my ipod touch 2g

September 7, 2009 at 1:50 PM

I was wondering how you make multiple copies of the page jumps?

September 8, 2009 at 3:46 AM

i only have one applications folder in my ssh. why is that?

September 9, 2009 at 10:26 AM

When I tried to add the touchmania repository, an error message came up saying that it could not find the repository. Any suggestions?

September 11, 2009 at 7:02 PM

thanks dudE! its worth the time@

September 12, 2009 at 5:14 AM

i cant get more than 1 page 0 icon or more than one page 1 icon if you get what i mean so i cant have a page 1 and a page 2 and a page 3 per page

September 25, 2009 at 3:58 PM

hey how the heck do i use my keyboards from icy?

September 28, 2009 at 8:01 PM

Those who think this is hard...
Before a lot of these smart jailbreak programs came out you had go in and change folder properties and shit using ssh.

Oh and custom keyboards dont work in 3.0 and above.
Custom keyboard sounds do though.

September 29, 2009 at 1:58 PM

Hey im having a problem with duplicating the springjumps help!

September 30, 2009 at 2:05 AM

Amazing theme! Works perfect!
I done it on my MacBook, and used winSCP with Crossover, worked fine.
Thanks for this amazing tutorial!
& 6-milkdesign rocks for this!
My iPod now looks awesome again! :D

October 5, 2009 at 3:21 PM

Hey got everything installed but the page jumps are still numbers what did I do wrong?

October 7, 2009 at 11:22 PM

This is misleading. iPhones do not have "Music" and "Video" apps they have an iPod app. So this obviously wasn't made for iPhone.

October 8, 2009 at 11:34 AM

please help!!! i'm lost!!
i don't understand step 8. how i supposeed to put pagw 0,1,2,3 at all pages?? i had only one copy

Ok I'm having trouble with the ssh buisness? It said it'll take a while but....yeah i've been waiting a good long while and it doesn't seem to be workin?

October 16, 2009 at 9:17 PM

October 17, 2009 at 4:11 AM

October 17, 2009 at 5:21 AM

I am having the same problem did you figure it out?

October 17, 2009 at 6:09 AM

Anyone find out how to get more sets of springjump icons?????? I have a set of 0123 and then a random number 3 that wont go away even if i uninstall the app haha

October 17, 2009 at 6:10 AM

Hey try using iphone explorer

October 18, 2009 at 8:56 AM

dude, hold the home button and the button on the top of the touch

October 18, 2009 at 1:35 PM

the whitoken theme downloads onto the mac but it doesnt open up or anything. I tried to transfer it onto my ipod and when i did it didnt do anything. please help

October 19, 2009 at 3:37 AM

nice theme but you need lots of patience when setting up the icons. it took me 30 mins to fix all up. but nice theme!

October 21, 2009 at 12:48 AM

I'm having problems trying to add the sources. I can add the first but not second.

October 21, 2009 at 5:17 PM

having the same problem. only got one set of the 1234-icons. what to do? if anyone knows, plz mail me at: tummen_89@hotmail.com or post here.

October 21, 2009 at 5:41 PM

seriously, wtf is wrong with you!? why don't you share it with us? we got the same problem. so plz write here how you did to fix it.

October 22, 2009 at 3:52 AM

having the same exact problem. unsure what to do

October 22, 2009 at 5:50 PM

To fix the problem with the 0123 on every page:

The part where you used the WinSCP, and moved all those folders over, that was creating more of the same buttons. Now all you have to do is restart your machine and you will have them all!

October 24, 2009 at 3:32 PM

How am i supposed to open the FiveIRows if there is no icon to open it?

October 24, 2009 at 7:15 PM

for those who couldnt get more springjumps icons, try to read in detail installation guide part 7 no. 9. Guess u missed that one part.
@matt : u need to install fiveirows GUI, not the non GUI one to change the settings.

October 25, 2009 at 6:50 PM

Simply amazing. Took a while to set up properly, but I did not run into any problems (just make sure you reboot after the first SSH session so all the shortcut arrows are there).

Now I just have to maintain the whole thing, make sure I keep things organized every time I install a new app or game. But that's ok.

Thank you for that thorough turorial and congrats on the theme!! :)

October 25, 2009 at 7:34 PM

did u rename them? if so change them back to Page 0 n stuff

October 26, 2009 at 10:41 PM

Hey, uhm, yea it dosnt work. When I changed the theam with winterbord, nothing happend. I installed everything ok, I got the 44 blank apps. What am I doing wrong?

October 28, 2009 at 2:33 AM

How do I take the shortcut arrows off if I dont want the theme anymore?

October 31, 2009 at 10:04 AM

I have downloaded the WinSCP, but when i go to login it will never let me and says connection refused. What do i need to do to get this to work?

November 6, 2009 at 6:54 PM

Please help, i can't get the multiple shortcuts either!!

November 11, 2009 at 12:42 PM

So this has to be done on a windoz machine? rly?

November 11, 2009 at 3:43 PM

Worked Great!!!

November 11, 2009 at 7:57 PM

thnx for the theme. it was great, tool a while to set up but totally worth it. good work!!

November 16, 2009 at 11:51 AM

how do i make it so that i can get my page links more than once? i have on set of the icons but i can not get 4 of them to put on each page

November 24, 2009 at 11:07 PM

"Did not Find Repository"
"The indicated repository could not be found. This could be because you are trying to add a legacy Installer repository (these are not supported).Also, this interface is only capable of working with exact repository URLs. If you host a repository and are having issues please contact the author of Cydia with any questions you have.

December 27, 2009 at 8:41 PM

I am curently modifiying my theme with a few selfmade icons, and I've noticed that the icons on screen get overlapped by the icons on the right, blocking out the name of the icon. How do I fix it.
