    Refreshed Cydia. Still not out for me.

    Edit: Updated! This is great! It’s wasn’t that difficult to clear the cache, but this made things a lot easier.

    • Phan Van Minh

      Still not out for me too!

    • Capirexz

      I dont get the update.

  • Russelle Adriano

    So I must remove StatusBarFix2 before upgrading Winterboard?

    • Noaaahh

      No, I don’t think so. They’re two different things.

    • Quang

      They are 2 different things.
      With “old” Winterboard, when you apply a theme for status bar, the status bar wont automatically change. You had to use iFile (or other apps) to delete the Status bar cache.

    Without knowing this issue, I have reinstalled windterboard and other tweaks multiple times.. also rebooted twice.. anyways thanks for the update 🙂

    I downloaded winterboard and some themes from cydia. However only few icons that follow the theme while others remain as default. I already updated winterboard and the problem’s still there. Anybody know what’s the problem and how to make the themes fully functional?

    • Nate McKelvie

      I’m not sure this is your problem or not but I found that a few tweaks not made specifically for ios7 caused problems with winter board. For example the tweak universal video downloader destroyed winter board! After installing it only the newsstand app remained themed and even after removing all tweaks and themes the newsstand NEVER stopped being themed, I had to do full restore

    i really really appreciate all the work he does for all of us i just really wish he could get the status bar issue system wide fixed up… great work none the less!

    I still can’t get circles for iphone or circles for ipad to work, is it an issue with winterboard or the tweak itself? I’ve e-mailed the author Jackie Tran but as usuall no reply.

    • marcus1324

      I can probably help you with this, what do you mean the circles aren’t working?

      • Rondog

        The circles for icons that are installed with winterboard don’t change my icons to round, and when I purchased the tweak it said it was ios 7 compatible. it’s the same for the ipad, the icons don’t change at all they stay the same, square. I went ahead and bought Style HD and my icons are round and hd,so I imagine it might be the tweak and not winterboard. I tried it with the winterboard upgrade and they still don’t work. I’m talking about the icon masks that turn them round. It’s a nice tweak but it doesn’t work.

      • marcus1324

        Ok I think what you need to do is clear you icon cache with iFile. First off get iFile if you don’t have it. It’s highly recommended for any jailbroken iDevice. Your going to want to navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches and then in that long list of items look for the folder titled com.apple.IconsCache and open it. Click edit at the top right of your iDevice, select everything inside of that folder and delete it with the trash icon. After that close out of all of your open apps completely and turn off your iDevice. Leave it off for a minute and then turn it back on. When I say this I’m talking about a reboot where you actually hold down the power button and all. This should fix your problem, I hope I helped!

      • Rondog

        I did exactlly as you said and the icons only change half way, by that I mean they are half round and half square, all distorted, so I’m guessing it’s the tweak, because when I re-install style HD the icons are perfect. I’ll just wait maybe they’ll upgrade the tweak. Thanks for the help.

      • marcus1324

        Well sorry it didn’t work out for you, good luck!
