Snowman theme isn’t your typical Christmas theme… it’s more of a subtle Christmas feel. The theme contains around 35 custom icons however it has an icon mask which means it actually themes all icons (except Web Clips). It also contains a lock screen background, dock, wallpaper, sms background, Folders mod… etc. You can get Snowman Theme via the modmyi source. I’m still looking for the perfect Christmas theme. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite.
Ok, now I know this is going to be too early for some of you but it is past Thanksgiving and I did make myself hold off until after Thanksgiving before starting the Christmas theme reviews. So here we go… the first one! Christmas Theme by Chode4eve is a WinterBoard theme that contains around 25 icons (just the basic apps), a lock screen background, a Messages Background, a Phone keypad background, some system string mods, badges and some UI sounds. I’m not going to lie… Christmas themes can tend to be a little cheesy but this one has well designed icons and the backgrounds are good quality. I’m not a huge fan of the UI sounds but, I just go into iFile and rename the UISounds folder to something like UISounds(nope) and then I no longer have the theme’s built-in sounds. Other than that… a decent Christmas theme… it just makes me all cheery! You can get Christmas Theme by Chode4eve via the BigBoss source. Check out the screenshots below.
Today, while we were in the Apple store, I happened to look over at Doug’s iPhone while he was using SBSettings and to my astonishment saw a beautiful SBSettings theme. Tenuis Matte is a clean SBSettings theme that just happens to go nicely with my favorite WinterBoard theme… Smoog. I think I may actual prefer it to the Smoog SBSettings theme. Anyway, what I then realized is that Tenuis Matte is actually a theme that comes with SBSettings (who knew!)… here I am installing themes when the best one comes with the app! So, if you are looking for a nice SBSettings theme, you may want to check out Tenuis Matte… if you haven’t already! Screenshots below. [Read more...]
There are a few kewl features that could be used from this theme but it’s not set up completely to work with my iPhone 4 or the new OS. First, the icons are not made for the retina display. There are also a few icons that are either spelled in a different language or missing so they won’t show up correctly until I go in and rename them using iFile or just not show up at all. There are a lot of icons in this set, over 250! It also comes with some windows sounds effects, the blue spinning circle and other UI images like buttons & search boxes. [Read more...]
This theme is pretty sweet looking but these types of themes are always a pain to try and get setup correctly so here is a video that guides you through it.

This hack for the iPhone makes it snow behind your icons and above your wallpaper. It is downloaded in Cydia and activated by Winterboard. You must be jailbroken for this to work. It does slow down the device a bit and I did notice minor glitching when swiping between pages. My iPhone has a lot of hacks so that may be something to do with it. If you try it out, let me know how it works for you.
