    Yeah we need one [​IMG] I know that more and more people have got into the scene of jailbreaking and filetrip lacks a theme section for it *hint hint*

    Isn't that what your repo's for though? Personally I'd have trouble trying to install a theme manually (though i'm sure it would just take a small amount of hunting around the filesystem)

    i need to know a few things before i create the filetrip categories for "i devices"
    do i need to create separate categories for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad? or are they all compatible
    do i need to create iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, etc. categories?

    Why not add Microsoft Windows themes while we are still at it, Costello?

    For idevice themes I think it should be:
    • Apps
    • Battery
    • Complete theme
    • Lockscreen
    • SpringBoard
    • System
    If someone wants to make improvements to my list go ahead

    I'm guessing it'll be just one section.
    Themes usually come with everything together (explorer.exe, fonts, theme file)

    Theme sections for iDevices should go like this:
    • iPhone/3g/3gs, iPod touch/2g/3g
    • iPod touch 4, iPhone 4 (Retina)
    • iPad/3g (HD)
    Maybe a ringtone section might be useful?

    @alidsl: Maybe just app, complete themes and wallpaper sections? Also, what do you mean by system?

    I think there should be a themes section if people are going to be posting and uploading themes that require a lot of work (eg, apps that require custom springjumps, utilise particular apps such as the "infini" series). Other than that, it's useless... we have ModMyi for that anyway, and the Cydia repository contains most simple themes that everyone would need anyway
