I am an experienced jail breaker. I have jailbroken my iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4S, and iPad 2. I now have an iPhone 5 running on software 6.1. I used the Evasi0n jailbreak and everything installed perfectly fine. I can download packages from Cydia but every time i select a theme and respring my phone goes into safe mode. I restored and re-jailbroke but the same thing is happening. I also cannot add the hacklous source. Is this jailbreak bogus??? What can i do to make winterboard work??

Maybe you should start purchasing your apps instead of pirating them.

You mentioned hackulous repo and you say you purchase your apps? Strange. Anyway. hackulous repo has closed on new years eve.

My winterboard isn't working either, nothing i check off goes into effect after I respring it. I have noticed everytime I open cydia, there are a couple of error messages and one of them is about winterboard, something about signatures not found or something of the sort. I'm thinking that there are issues with winterboard and that's why some of us are unable to load any apps/tweaks ??

to get a proper response, you shouldn't be writing "im getting some error msgs and theres something about winterboard". We need to know exactly what your error messages are.

@ ml05019 ... actually I wasn't expecting a response since I didn't post my answer as an... I need help propersition ... rather, I was just letting the original poster know that I too am having trouble activating themes off of winterboard...and that I feel that it's an internal Cydia problem rather than a one-on-one jailbreaker problem.

In my winterboard the only thing that's actually in full effect is my font I have other things checked like Instagram themes- only thing that changed was the like and comment button- sms Background-still the same plain white- nd when I tried to use a theme for the entire phone, I only saw part of the theme and that was in cydia. What's going on. Nd I have the iPhone 5 running on IOS 7.0.4
