Acier – WinterBoard Theme [Tutorial]

Acier is a unique WinterBoard theme (based on the concept of an iNav theme… you know, the original theme from back-in-the-day that started all these sweet themes). Below is a list of what you will need to install in order to use the theme correctly and instructions on how to set-up the theme. Check it out.

You will need to install:
1. Five Icon Dock
2. Five-Column SpringBoard (via ModMyi)
3. iC Theme Essentials (via MacCiti)
4. WeatherIcon (via ModMyi)
5. LiveClock (via iSpazio)
6. SpringJumps (via BigBoss)
7. iBlank (via ModMyi)
8. Categories (via BigBoss)

1. Install all of the apps listed above via Cydia.

2. Once everything is installed, open WinterBoard and uncheck everything that is selected in WinterBoard.

3. Open the Categories application and create two folders; Games and Apps. Place all your apps and games into those folder however, make sure you leave out the apps listed below.

Make sure you leave out:
app store


4. Open the iBlank application and create 52 blank icons, each page has 13 blank icons apiece.


5. Open the SpringJumps application, go into the Jump Icons option and turn off pages 5-8, leaving pages 0-4 on.


6. Place springjumps 0-4 on your dock.

7. Arrange the icons and blank icons like the screen shots you see below.


8. Once all your icons are arranged correctly, open WinterBoard and select the Acier theme. Voilà, you have a sweet new theme.

    Hey, this theme rocks. Sure it takes a little while, but it’s more time consuming than confusing. I am going to try and get used to this theme because it kicks!!!

  6. Josh Wiens says

    What weather icon them did you guys use???

  7. Not trying to be negative. I really like this site and the tutorials. I just think the creators need to attempt to package this into something more usable…

    • I’m not sure they can package it in an easier format to set-up. All iNav themes take some set-up due to the fact that the icons have to be laid out in a very specific order. It would be sweet if they could figure out a way to make them easy to install but, I’m not sure it’s possible.

    • I’m sure it is possible, it would just leave your choices of where to set things out of the equation. It would be much like the Spring Back app but make it dynamic with some cleaver regex lines.

      I would actually try to write one myself, but I am absolutely terrible at UI, and it would need UI to select which applications you want in Games and which in Apps.

      It’s not impossible, just a little difficult. I’m actually suprised it has not been done yet.

  8. I’ve been using this theme for months now and I love it! My iPhone looks totally unique (not just like an iphone with a skin). Lots of fun.

  9. Humberto Diaz says

    Great theme!

    Everything is looking great! The only thing is that my icons dont match the ones in the screen shots. The only one that change was the clock, from there on everything is the same looking apple icon.

    What Im I doing wrong/missing?

  10. Humberto Diaz says

    Never mind.. all you had to do is put it on ‘summer board mode’ and the theme is complete!

  11. Theme just took a little time to do but definetly most original one I have found. Took a little to get use to though

  12. wow it is amazing. great how to steps. Thank you.
