How To Change iPod Touch Theme

If you want to learn how to change the theme on your iPod Touch, there is no way to do it unless you jailbreak your iPod. Apple has the iPod Touch locked down and the only changes you can make are from options in the "Settings" menu. This article will show you how to change the wallpaper and also how to jailbreak. If you jailbreak your iPod Touch it voids the warranty and if something goes wrong, Apple will not replace it. Once your iPod Touch is out of warranty, you can jailbreak it and that will make it more customizable. So from this article you can either change the wallpaper, or jailbreak your iPod touch and change the theme. Remember it will break the warranty if you jailbreak it so if it still under warranty be cautious. You are able to restore your iPod Touch back to factory settings, which will take the jailbreak off.

  1. Turn on your iPod Touch. Tap on "Settings" on the main screen.
  2. Tap on the "General" tab. Tap the "Wallpaper" icon.
  3. Select the wallpaper image you want and tap "OK." It will ask you to center the image.
