I have downloaded sbsettings and winterboard and nothing happens after i download them. I don't reboot when prompted after I download. Could this be the problem?

Slide your finger across the status bar (where the clock is) and sbsettings should show up. And you do need to respring.

Yes, you need to reboot. MobileSubstrate, which powers Winterboard and SBSettings must load at boot, so you have to reboot.
