Winterboard iOS 7

Themers and all around jailbreakers will be happy to learn that Winterboard, a staple in the jailbreak community when it comes to theming, has been updated to bring complete iOS 7 support, and maybe more importantly, support for arm64 devices such as the iPhone 5s, the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display.

Although Winterboard worked fine in many cases for older devices running iOS 7, there were still bugs and inconsistencies. These problems should soon be a thing of the past now that Winterboard has been updated…

What does it mean for jailbreakers? Simply said, it means that jailbreakers will now be able to apply themes to any device without having to fear incompatibility.

Of course, there aren’t many, if any at all, themes currently available for arm64 devices so if you have an iPhone 5s, you’ll probably have to wait until designers come up with new themes or update existing ones. Surenix for example, recently said he was working on an Ayecon update.

Saurik notes that Winterboard version 0.9.3912 “seems” compatible with 64-bit devices. Judging by his careful choice of words, it appears that Winterboard might still be needing some work to squash bugs that could have gone unnoticed during development. But at this point, most of the job is done, and future updates will only bring stability improvements.

Excited much?

    Ahhhh just wonderful

    • Jonathan

      May I suggest Bigify to make the icons smaller?

      • Gavin cooper

        Ok thanks 😀

      • Gavin cooper

        Updated..

      • Jonathan

        I’m not forcing you, but I think they should be smaller to the point they don’t touch.

      • Gavin cooper

        Lol ok, let me c yours

      • Jonathan

        Here ya go.
        If you want the widgets, the top one is from a paid tweak, the clock/calender is from another source, and the photos are downloaded from a website. It originally had Car photos in it, I just replaced it with my Photography. If you want any of these, I can just email the file, then in iFile you tap the home button on the bottom to go to default place, then tap Library, then iWidget, and just paste that folder into there. No respring required 🙂

      • Gavin cooper

        Looks really awesome, but I recommend you try flat7 theme :D, more defined icons

      • Jonathan

        Thanks. 🙂 I’ve already checked it out. I’m more in love with this one. 😛
        Personal preference. 😉

    Anyone else having problems with putting stuff on lock-screen? Changing themes/icons work but for lock screen nothing.

    anyone know any decent wallpapers working for iphone 5s? haven’t found any that are working on my phone yet

    • Нямбаяр Баярхүү

      Every wallpapers should be working fine.. If you are asking for application, I would suggest Zedge. Just look it up on AppStore.

  • Becca

    this is what I am working with now

    • GzyOnline

    Winterboard is not updating to the newest version for me? Any ideas?

  • FreeRunner9616

    Circulus Is the theme that makes theme circles, if I must say I like it a lot.

    • Mo

      What clock widget is that?

    • Bonita Langeberg

      How do you get the clock? looks awesome!

      • Mo

        iWidgets PackS and then select Roliz Clock iWidget

  • Jonathan

    The perfect iPod.

    • GuyBey0ndC00L

      What app you used to move the icons like that

      • Jonathan

        Gridlock 2.0.
        If you want those iWidgets, you won’t find the calendar one in any of the sources. You have to add one.

    My new look look that I’m going with.

    • Jonathan

      Back background? Really? That’s so iOS 3.

      • Ken Williams

        I like to keep it simple and clean. It might not be for everyone but it works for me.

      • Jonathan

        True, true. But if I was doing something like that, I would have done a gradient or something. It depends on the color of your device.

  • Robert Pierce

    hey I gotta iphone 5s but winterboard is still showing the older version. how can I download the newer version because none of the themes will load on winterboard?

    • Abdel

      I got the same problem! i tryed rebooting/respring reinstalling cydia substrate.. nothing helps!!

    • Jonathan

      Refresh sources maybe?

  • Abdel

    on the description it says 0.9.3912 but above right under winterboard it’s still the same!!! how can i fix this, does anyone know ?

    • Jonathan

      Refresh sources?

  • Abdel

    How to fix the older winterboard version in cydia ; i found this on some forum and it worked for me!

    1. Go to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d and delete “cydia.list.”
    2. Go to /var/lib/apt/lists and delete everything except the “lock” file and the “partial” folder.
    3. Go to /var/lib/apt/list/partial and delete all the files in that folder.
    4. Go to /var/lib/cydia and delete “metadata.plist.”
    5. Restart Cydia. You will see the same screen you see the first time you open it after jailbreaking. It will regenerate you sources, ask what type of user you are and it should fix the “Failed to fetch” errors.

    Good luck!

    • Robert Pierce

    • Jonathan

      lol I just downloaded Flat7. I wasn’t sure if I wanted it or not. Guess I know now 🙂

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    Didn’t install winter board yet. I don’t wanna overdose on themes like I did in the past. This is simply Bigify and Five-Column SB.

  • 小宏

    Still can’t change things on ios7 for iPad4….

    • winson.l

      same here 🙁

  • 小宏

    The themes for iPad are poor….Almost for iPhone….

  • Jorge Cabral

    Hey guys,
    I know this has nothing to do with winterboard but dont know where else to post this.
    I’ve been looking for a data monitor for the jailbroken iPhone 5S and have found no information that the previous tweaks and apps are compatible.
    Does anyone have any info?
    Thx

    • Jeffrey Feuerstein

      Well, a lot of tweaks are compatible, youll just have to try…

  • David Vences
