Metal iPhone Aqua for Winterboard

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterboardI came across a magnificent, yet simple theme in Cydia a couple of days ago called Metal iPhone Aqua. The screenshots strived me to look further. Just over 800 KB, this theme is a quick download from the Planet-iPhones source, and has two alternatives (Metal iPhone Blue & Metal iPhone Pink). This theme skins every base app, including Cydia, to a nice metallic feel, yet it changes no springboard icons (which is pretty good, because I hate having a theme that has an icon stick out like a sore thumb!). It comes complete with a Lock screen wallpaper, sliders, slider bars, other.artwork files, Cydia skins, a Dialer, a Safari theme, an App Store skin, YouTube skin, iTunes Store skin, Map skin, iPod skin, Phone skin, Mail skin, SMS skin, and an HUD. Phew, a lot of stuff! This theme is really nice, smooth, and simple for any iPhone/iPod Touch user to love.

  8. DJContagious says

    Which are u talking about? The signal bars or the wi-fi bars?

    • how about the …signal bars… where did you get those?

    • DJContagious says

      ok the signal bars were in Customize, a package called “svdBLUE” in
      the File Set category “Bars”

      the wi-fi bars are a package in Cydia called “MiWiFi Bars”

      hope i helped!


  9. Nice one DJC!

  10. wow… this is awesome…. like it much… but i think iSol Glass doesn’t even match with it. Let’s see. Great job for the firt time ;-)

  11. Nice one DJ :)

  12. Just a warning… this theme messed up my dialler keyboard… as in it no longer works. When I press the dial button, the keypad comes up, but none of the buttons on the keyboard, or the option buttons below (recents, contacts etc) work. After about 10 seconds, it just crashes back to the main screen. :-(

    Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix? Otherwise I’m just going to have to re-install.

  13. Metal iPhone Blue is even better.

    It “strived” you?

    • Err, I don’t think he was applauding your Wordsmithing there…

      Nice write up.

      i dismiss this case!


  14. Welcome DJ… keep up the great reviews.

  15. DJContagious says

    if anyone wants me to:
    check out
    or write a review

    of any application/theme, please let me know

    my e-mail is



  16. I agree with pdxDavid. If you are a regular poster on an English language board, weigh what you write. People judge the board by things that are posted by primaries on that board. I understand that when it comes to iPhones and iPod Touches, there is a huge dip in the demographic, but regardless of age, communication is everything on a board like this.

    I also have a request to make of the Board leaders. From now on, please date every major post that hits the board. Going back over old posts, it is essential to know dates mainly to reconcile with moves by Apple and the Dev Team.

  17. Good job, nice theme you can feel it like different but just what is needed, keep going

  18. Succinct and well written review DJ. I had installed the theme quite some time back and personally didn’t like it too much. not very slick or subtle looking.

  19. this is my absolute favorite! but i have been using it for a while & it’s getting kind of old. does anyone know of another that might be along the same lines?

  20. I have the same problem,, I love everything about it but the dialer page, it looks really small and doesn’t work,, please help me
