    [QUOTE=jglowe74;1524782]launch Winterboard. this is the app that will allow you to add different theme elements that you have installed through Cydia. you can check/uncheck elements you want to use and even move them around. below is a good link helping explain how to utilize Winterboard. hope it helps.


    Hi

    just followed the tutorial but its made no difference

    have you installed SpotBright from cydia? it is same thing as spotlite, but allows you to also search for for hidden or JB apps. spotlite won't pull them up. and i'd recommend downloading SBSettings or BossPrefs. both will allow you to hide app icons and conversely, reveal hidden ones.
    ok so i installed spotbright via cydia...is there an icon for that app on my springboard because i dont see one?

    yes it should have. you also said you have Cydia, so i'm not sure why it's not there. after installing SpotBright, did you respring? sometimes those features don't take effect without a respring. or maybe even a restart wouldn't hurt in this situation. if that doesn't work, i'm thinking restore the iPhone and re-JB.

    weird. then i'd definitely go into Cydia and install it. sounds like something went wrong during the initial JB.

    hmm...i tried DL'ing winterboard earlier but when my phone rebooted, it froze on the apple screen then shut off on me and it kept doing it when i tried turning on my phone so i was forced to restore and JB again...i hope this doesnt happen again!

    Cydia & Rock. no Icy. never tried Icy actually.

    and i just looked under Manage>Extensions in Rock. it lists Winterboard as a Rock app. give it a shot and download Rock also

    from what i understand, Icy is just a watered-down version of Cydia. doesn't eat up as much memory and less laggy.
