    Default Netatalk Finder Issue, Cannot Find Themes

    iPhone 32GB 3Gs 3.0.1 Jailbroken with RedSnow
    Mac OS X 10.5.8

    Ok, I'm interested in making custom themes for my iphone 3gs. It's been jailbroken and I've been able to add themes that other people have made with no issue in Winterboard on my iPhone itself. Everywhere I look it says it's as simple as adding your new theme (drag n drop) to the themes folder.

    I've installed Netatalk on my phone and can even get my iPhone to connect via finder on my Mac. But when I attempt to open my themes folder it does nothing. And by nothing I mean Deletes itself for a second and then returns if I re-open the themes folder. I cannot even view it as an empty folder. I DO have themes on my iPhone so I want to know why I cannot see any. Here's where I'm going:



    Am I just being thick? Everywhere I read says it should be super easy from this point on. Have I not connected correctly? Connecting as root and mobile do the same thing. Or am I simply not suppose to see my themes that I've currently download?

    I can find this one theme under a summerboard folder here:



    But when I try to edit it or add anything to this folder my mac gives me this message:



    This is everything I've tried, please let me know if I'm just doing something wrong or missed some step, because as far as I can tell I've done it all right, my iphone has connected, and according to all the other info sites it SHOULD be working easily by now, thanks in advance for any help you may give.

    Default

    You may need to adjust filesystem properties for the Themes folder. This one which is working has correct access privileges, whereas others don't. If you know how to work with ssh, then you should be able to "chmod 777 /Library/Themes/" your main themes storage to be able to store new ones.

    If there is a mobileterminal available, procedures are the same - "chmod 777 /Library/Themes/".

    Triple check for proper command usage before doing anything or you will end up with a shiny brick.

    Alternatively, one may advise you to change owner of the Themes folder. You should then use "chown mobile /Library/Themes/". Results will end up the same.

    Default Netatalk Finder Issue, Cannot Find Themes

    Sorry to bump an old topic, but after jailbreaking my iphone 4 recently using jailbreakme, I have used netatalk to access my iphone root and am running into the exact same problem as the OP. The phone is explorable in many areas but not in library/themes, as it blinks ahead and immediately deletes the themes folder, then recreates it and im back where i started. I cannot access the folder and am completely mystified as to why. Has this solution worked? and is there another solution that doesn't have the words "shiny brick" in it.... I'm not the most experienced user and frankly I'm petrified of losing my precious iphone over some superficial theming.
