I have been out of touch with the blog for over a month but it does not mean that I am away from the community, particularly trying out new cool themes. And recently I got myself hands on a cool theme called Patience

Patience is brand new WinterBoard theme for iPhone that is currently in beta. It is co-created by two famous designers in the community Zooropalg from France and iPix from the UK.

February 27, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


Eventually I gave this a try after all the criticisms have settled.

Ayeris is a new Winterboard theme for iOS 7 created by well-known designer Surenix with a controversial price tag of $3.99. The word ayeris, which is pronounced as Iris, like the ring-shaped membrane in your eye or the Greek god of the rainbow, is about communicating the excellence of timeless design to and for the world, according to Surenix in the package description. This appears to be what he strives for by releasing this new theme since the existence of ayecon, his iOS 6 based theme.

February 15, 2014 — by Xin Chan0


It has been a very busy week in the jailbreak community with loads of new and updated tweaks and themes. Designers are very eager to tease and release their hot new themes for free or with affordable price tags. I am also very busy in trying out these tweaks and especially themes as I am getting bored for those updated from iOS 6 base or awaiting for new updates for those that I own for more icons and excitements. Recently iSkeuos designed by Paarth (a.k.a iPhoneiHelper) caught my attention on Cydia and Twitter.

The theme now supports over 135 icons that are crafted from the ground. It also comes with 5 nice wallpapers, Classicdock, mask, overlay and shadow. What is more, it also themes Safari App UI, Message bubbles, keyboard and gratefully Control Center toggles and other parts of it.

Acies is an new Winterboard theme for iOS 7 developed by well-known talented designer decke (@deckedsg on Twitter). 

The theme is an icon set only when one main package to be activated in Winterboard. The icons redesigned on 70 icon for all stock iOS apps and some third party app icons. The icons are designed in very detail, some are really closed to the original icon of certain apps like iOS Photos App but retouched with a feeling to me that it is deemed to be originally coming with iOS 7. Simply to say, the icons looks flat, colorful and sleek.

Winterboard User Wallpaper Not Working in iOS 5? Try This Fix

June 6, 2012 — by Simon Ng3


Many of us love to use Winterboard, a popular tweak on cydia to theme your iPhone. For some reasons, you may want to use your own wallpaper instead of the one bundled with the theme. Winterboard comes with a “User Wallpaper” feature that lets you replace the bundled wallpaper with your own. We have written a detailed guide showing you how to make use of the feature. However, as informed by some readers, this “User Wallpaper” feature doesn’t work in iOS 5.

Here is a fix if you find the “User Wallpaper” doesn’t work. The fix is simple. You can simply delete or rename the default “Wallpaper.png” of the Winterboard theme. I’ll use the “Suave” theme as an example to show you how to apply the fix. But the procedures should be similar for other themes.
