I havent had one single problem with winterboard. I posted in a similar thread n u will see the ton of themes i have installed along with other cydia apps. People need to read the desriptions of theme or app b4 downloading. To make sure itll wrk wirh ipad. Even ones that dont completely still let u change it bck and respring and u good. The other post was asking what are some good winterboard themes and i replied listing a partial list of what i have. A good amount also. ;-)

Why did you install winterboard when you have no idea what it does?
It looks Ike you don't have much idea of what you are doing with the jailbreak.
Better start reading some stuff before you just install stuff you have no idea about!

If you want to deinstall stuff you have to open cydia, tap on Manage -> Packages and pick the package you want do uninstall. Then on the top right you will see a button modify. Hit that and select remove. BE CAREFUL -ON,Y REMOVE STUFF YOU INSTALLED!! don't install stuff that comes as standard with cydia!

When you want to write in caps you have to go to settings, keyboard and enable caps lock. Double tap the shift arrow and it goes blue which means you enabled capslock.

Do themes that work for ipad always say so in the description? I'm looking at some random themes and I haven't seen one mention about being good or bad for the ipad so I'm not sure if I should download it. Don't wanna do any damage.

You can always uninstall.

Unfortunately, it doesnt always say. Its just trial n error. Shouldnt be any issues though. If it dont wrk or dont look good, go bck to winterboard settings, uncheck the theme n respring. Then u good. Go bck to cydia , go to installed, click on that theme, press modify tab, then uninstall.
Alot of those temes are older and dnt wrk too well with ios 4.2.1. I mean they wrk, but didnt account for folders n such. Trial n error finding out which ones r good with it.
