If you want to access the Buckeye goodies I’ve created for iPhones and iPod Touches, you first need to have a jailbroken iPhone. Here’s a link to some tutorials, if you are interested, but haven’t done so yet.
Already jailbroken? Good. You should also have Winterboard installed. If you don’t have it, search for it in Cydia and install it. Onto the next step.
You won’t be able to find my themes simply by doing a search in Cydia. You’ll need to add this website’s source to Cydia, so you can see all there is to offer, receive updates, etc. That’s pretty easy, but I decided to walk you through it here, rather than direct you to another website.
Step 1: Open up Cydia
Step 2: Click on “Manage” at the bottom. Below is what you should be seeing.
Step 3: At that point, click on “Sources”, which is the middle option. After you do that, you should see something like the following:
Step 4: In the upper right-hand corner, click on “Edit”. Then another option “Add” appears in the upper left-hand corner. Click on that. A pop-up should appear, and there you will type cydia.stuffbuckeyeslike.com (don’t delete the http://). See below.
Step 5: Click “Add Source”. Cydia will do its thing and add the repo. When the process is complete (hopefully with no errors), you’ll see a “Return to Cydia” button.
The repo should be available now.
Step 6: That’s it! Click on the newly added “Stuff Buckeyes Like” source and take a look at what I’ve added thus far (5 themes).
Step 7: Once you’ve finished installing themes, close Cydia and open up Winterboard. Click on “Select Themes”. There will be some default themes there. I ignore those. The newly installed themes should appear at the top. Pick the one(s) you want to activate, then go back to the main page. There should be a “Respring” option in the top left hand corner. Click that and your iDevice will respring.
When it finished, your new theme will be “live”! Enjoy!
NOTE: When you install your first theme from the repo, you will also be prompted to install a package called “StuffBuckeyesLike.com Repo Icon”. What that does is give you custom icons for the repo, like the ones you see in the picture above. Just a little more Buckeye flava. If you decline to install that package, or choose to uninstall it later, Cydia will also uninstall the rest of the themes you’ve installed from my repo. It’s just the way things work. It’s a dependency. My advice? Leave it installed. It makes things pretty. Deal with it.
