Hi everybody! This guide will show you a detailed guide on how to change the UI (User Inerface), also known as a pinstripe, on your iPod Touch or iPhone. It goes with out saying that you must have a jailbroken device for this, since to have Cydia you must ne jailbroken. If you do not know how to jailbreak, you can search on YouTube for some quality guides.

Things You Will Need

All you will need are the following:
A jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone
A PC
A knowledge on how to SSH.
Internet Connection

Step 1

If you don't already have it, you can easily get it from Cydia. Just search for "Winterboard" in Cydia and install it. It will ask you to reboot your device, make sure you do that.

Step 2

You must save a picture that you want to be your background in Cydia. Here is a great link for pictures for your iPod Touch/iPhone:

Click on a category, then a picture, then right-click and save.

Step 3

You must rename the picture file you saved.
Rename it to:
UIPinstripe.png
Make sure you have .png at the end. It will already end in .jpg. Delete that and replace it with .png.

Then place that picture file in a folder with nothing else inside.

Step 4

Open what ever software you use to SSH. Navigate to
/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx
The copy that folder that has the picture inside it into that folder

Step 5

Now, go into Winterboard and enable the one on the very top. Exit and wait for your device to respring. Now open up Cydia and voila!!!
