Christmas Theme by Chode4eve – WinterBoard Theme

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.

Tenuis Matte – SBSettings Theme

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…]

Theme: Wind0ws

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…]

MatteFusionGZ – WinterBoard Theme

MatteFusionGZ is a simple and clean WinterBoard theme that contains 70 matte icons, a dock, status bar and badge. There are a few things to note about this theme.

The SMS icon is labeled incorrectly so the themed icon does not display when you active the theme in WinterBoard. To change this, you can ssh into (or use iFile on your device) the /library/Themes/MatteFusionGZ/Icons folder and rename Text.png to Messages.png. It will then display the themed SMS icon.

iAwesome – WinterBoard Theme

iAwesome is a WinterBoard theme that contains 304 redesigned icons (though all icons are modded… more to come on that), wallpaper, status bar, lock screen wallpaper, lock screen battery, badges, pop-ups and quite a few UI mods. The nice thing about this theme is that it contains an icon overlay which means that all icons are modded… not just icons that have been designed for the theme. If you go into the App Store, you will see that even the icons in the AppStore are modded with the overlay.
That is good news for those of you who like this theme because it means all the icons are your device will be modded… which is a rare occurrence. Check out the screenshots below.

High Tech (USSR, Rave-Up, Clover & Negative Cells) – WinterBoard Theme

High Tech is a WinterBoard theme that is available in four colors; USSR (red), Rave-Up (blue), Clover (green) and Negative Cells (orange). All four themes contain the same mods (just in the different colors); 72 icons, 5 wallpapers, dock, loading screens, lock screen battery, badges, weather app mod, phone app mod and quite a few other UI mods.

The themes also contain UI sounds. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of UI sounds. If you are like me and would rather not have them, you can ssh (or use the iFile app right on your device) and locate the Library/Themes/the name of the theme you are using (ex. High Tech USSR.theme) and delete the UISounds folder. If you don’t want to delete the folder, you can just rename it to something else.

A i r o – WinterBoard Theme

A i r o, by Pur3x, contains 61 icons (some of which are alternative icons), wallpaper, dock, lockscreen wallpaper, lockscreen battery, badges and quite a few UI mods. Overall, the theme is nicely designed and the UI mods are subtle and clean. I did notice that the “Slide to Unlock” text looks a little funky… it is moved over to the right but still slightly visible. You can fix this by using either the Slide to Unlock Killer or the No “Slide to Unlock” Text hacks. For more info about the theme, check it out on deviantART. You can get the A i r o theme via the modmyi source.

Sista – iPhone and iPod touch Theme

sista Normally I stick to writing about themes that can be installed via Cydia however, there are so many AWESOME themes that can only be installed via SSH… and Sista is one of them.

I found Sista, by SoundForge, on MacThemes and instantly loved it! It is a nicely designed, clean theme. The theme’s package contains a decent amount of icons and a .PDS file so that you can create your own. I will be honest, I’m partial to the Smoog theme via the BigBoss source but, it’s nice to change it up every once and a while! Below is info about the theme and a link to the download.

Let It Snow Widget for iPhone

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterboardThis 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.
