How To Manually Install Themes & Widgets On iOS Using iFile.

iFile, one of the signature jailbreak apps is like the ‘My Computer’ of iOS. It is truly a complete file browser with multiple functionalities. A very useful app indeed. It can be bought on the Bigboss repo for $4.00. Definitely worth the price.
iFile isn’t just useful for browsing files. It also has integrated file installer and zip file extractor. This helps in installing .deb’s (format of Cydia tweaks) and theme zip files from external sources (not from Cydia). Here’s how to use ifile to install deb’s, install winterboard themes and html widgets:

How to manually install themes using ifile?

Step 1. Go to a download link on safari. Let the page load, and wait for ‘Open in iFile’ to appear on the top right corner. The downloaded file will be transfered to the ‘Documents’ folder in iFile.

Step 2. Themes and widgets downloaded from external sources come in zip/rar format, hence, need to be extracted first. when we choose the “open in ifile’ option in Safari and are directed to ifile, we select the ‘Unarcheiver’ option. This extracts the files.

Similar to this process, deb files can be installed from external sources as well.
