This jailbreak theme was inspired by Microsoft Paint

Yep, you read correctly. There’s a new jailbreak theme available in Cydia, and it’s based on Microsoft’s iconic Paint application.

Paint, known for its tendency to produce crude looking drawings, is the application that’s been around in one form or another since Window’s inception. When wielded by a skilled artist it can produce impressive creations, but nine times out of ten, the results end up looking like something a toddler put together. This theme is no exception.

Paint — yes, its name is the same name of the application that it’s based off of — is an extremely simple theme. In fact, you’ll find that nearly every third party application lacks support for the theme. That means that the majority of your icons — almost all of those outside of the stock set — lack support for themed app icons.

When you see how the themed icons look, this might not seem like such a bad thing. Paint is an extremely crude looking creation, even by Microsoft Paint standards.

Paint is useful for one reason, and one reason only: to serve as a joke to show your friends. Anything outside of that is just wasting your time. Paint can be found free of charge (like you needed me to tell you that) on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Share your disgust thoughts in the comments below.

    • RarestName

      Agreed. It should be $1.99 or something.

      • RarestName

        Huh?

      • Elvin Topalov

        Didn’t you used to comment on TechnoBuffalo?

      • RarestName

        Too many people whining over whose favourite company is better over there.

        Aren’t you talking about idownloadblog?

      • RarestName

        TechnoBuffalo is worse. For example, look at the comment section of the Siri and Glass article. People are whining about innovation and posting sarcastic comments everywhere and the moderators don’t even care.

    Oh my Eyes!!!!!

  • Canchume

    dolan plz

  • Willie

    “Pixels” would be a better name for the theme

  • Cesar D

    Who made it? Bill Gates?

    • Danuel Carr

      We’ll let’s see. It’s a bad concept with poor execution, it’s cheap as hell, and the only reason people have paid it any mind is because it is associated with a once-respectable operating system. Yupp, sounds like Microsoft to me.

  • Liam Mulcahy

    wow

  • Roger Riekki

    LOVE IT.

  • n0ahcruz3

    It was probably Steve Ballmer trolling with us and made this theme lol

  • Chris Holden

    still better than some ios7 icons! hehe

  • J™

    not bad lookling actually….

  • YassineAb

    I don’t think so, I see 75% of iOS…

  • Joseph

    iOS users say that iOS is good for it’s simplicity, and then complain when it gets this simple. Classic.

    • Joseph

      Good God, no one on this blog can take a joke. Sheesh.

  • אביאור רוקח

    ARX is the best theme for iOS

  • David Gitman

    wtf I saw it in the commands a few days ago

  • leart za jmi

    IOS 8?

  • M Last

    who wants to use this them?
    are you kidding?

  • mav3rick

    At least this one is sincerely childish. Compared with the official new neonOS advertised as modern but just a blinding rainbow mix, this one looks good. Just a theme for whoever wants it.
