I am not a big “theme guy” but from time to time, I find some very cool themes and I like to feature them on the blog. That is the case of a new theme that is available since this morning in Cydia called Elegance.

I had to manually customize this theme a little bit as it was created by an Italian designer and most of the icons were in Italian, which prevented my iPhone to recognize most of them and display them correctly. For example, the “Maps” icon is named Maps.png but it is named Mappe.png in Italian, and my iPhone didn’t show it as it was looking for the English version.

To edit some of the icon names, I plugged my iPhone to my computer and launched iPhoneBrowser. In a couple minutes, I renamed the 5-6 icons that I needed… and voila!

Elegance includes a lock screen, custom slider, wallpaper, tons of icons, SMS background and more. As you can see from the image above, Elegance really deserves that name. I think it is a beautiful theme that might get to stay on my iPhone for a while…

    I’ve downloaded the iphonebrowser but is having some difficulty in finding the elegance theme to change the icon. can you give a step by step process on how to do it?

  • Hello Andrea,

    First you need to install Elegance via Cydia…

    Then plug in your iPhone and launch iPhoneBrowser. In the iPhoneBrowser menu at the top, click on “Go To Location” > “WinterBoard Themes”. You will see that iPhoneBrowser takes you directly where all the Winterboard themes are stored on your iPhone.

    In the left menu, click on “Elegance” and open the “Icons” folder. Browse each icon and rename them accordingly by right clicking on them and choosing “rename”. You will only have to rename just a few icons (the stock ones such as Text.php, Notes.png, etc…).

    That’s it!


    That’s it

    I downloaded elegance but it didn’t come down with italian icons and no matter how much i fidle with it I can’t get all the icons to look as the ones you displayed on your pic. The theme I got is from the same maker ‘winterboard’ im wondering if i didnt get a diffrent version or something….? Any hints on getting those icons? Thanks

  • @Jason – there is more than “hints” in the post and the comments… Read my previous comments and see how to do it.

  • Jason

    ok, my fault. I thought the icons would just be displayed in italian instead but now I see that I read wrong. Sorry and thanks
