We’ve got an extremely cool new Lock screen theme to show you guys and it’s called iOS 7 Accelerometer Slideshow Lockscreens. This is a new WinterBoard theme that recently appeared on Cydia, and it completely transforms the iOS Lock screen.
The download includes 5 different theme packs that work well with both 4″ iOS devices, and smaller 3.5″ devices. Each theme pack features well over a dozen different wallpapers that all move around as you move your device.
Like the Parallax effect found in iOS 7, these new themes allow you to harness the device’s built-in accelerometer for a similar stylized effect. It’s something that really needs to be seen to full appreciate.

Folks feeling left out of all of the iOS 7 beta festivities will be happy to hear that there is now a way you can get in on the fun—no developer account required. A new theme just popped up in Cydia that promises to give your jailbroken iPhone an iOS 7-style makeover.
Now, obviously it’s not going to be exactly like iOS 7. You’re not going to get any of the new features that come with the major update, like the control center or the revamped Notification Center. But if you just want your iPhone to look like iOS 7, this theme is for you… Read More
I’m not usually a theme kind of guy. I know there are a lot of people out there that love customizing the look of their devices, and that’s awesome, but I’m more about functionality and minimalism.
That doesn’t mean, though, that I won’t give new and interesting themes a shot. I used ayecon for a long time, and then I had iMIUI for a bit. And over the past few days, I’ve been testing out Motif… Read More
Folks looking to spice up their device’s Lock screen will be happy to hear that there’s a new jailbreak theme out that can help with that. It’s called LS Squares, and it adds 4 tiles to the empty space that each provide you with useful information at a glance.
Sure, there are already hundreds of tweaks and themes available in Cydia that have similar premises. But what sets LS Squares apart from the rest of them is its sharp, Metro-like tile design that can completely change the look of your Lock screen… Read More
A few days ago, we were contacted by one of the developers of a jailbreak theme I had never heard of before called iMIUI. In the email they told us that we just had to check out their theme, saying it could be the next ayecon.
Given that Surenix’s ayecon theme is easily the most popular in the jailbreak community right now, that’s a pretty bold statement. But after using iMIUI over the past few days, I’m starting to think they might just be right… Read More
Big news in the world of Mobile Substrate, but oddly enough, it has nothing to do with iOS and everything to do with Android. Yes, you heard right, Android. The creator behind Cydia and Mobile Substrate, Saurik, has released Substrate for Android, and he’s created a brand new website to document the new addition to the family.
What does this mean for Android users? It means many of your favorite jailbreak apps and tweaks could make it to Android, (WinterBoard is already available!) with the potential for many more… Read More
Ayecon is by far the most popular jailbreak theme that we’ve seen in quite some time, and its popularity doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Auxo, like ayecon, is insanely popular in its own right. But how do you get the pair to play nice together? It’s actually really simple — you download the official ayecon theme for Auxo, that’s how.
ayecon Auxo Theme is a free WinterBoard theme, and it comes directly from the creator of ayecon — Surenix. That means you can expect it to be a 1:1 match with the rest of the ayecon theme from a visual perspective. Read More

The iPhone Lock screen has not changed since 2007 and it is certainly boring, even outdated. Everyone loves a good Lock screen and we wanted to give a quick how-to for a simple tweak. Getting things looking fresh on your iPhone can be a jumbled mess while plowing through Cydia, looking for the right packages.

Remember Auxo, the jailbreak tweak that reinvigorates iOS’ app switcher? You’re probably thinking to yourself, ‘Jeff, how can I forget?’ Well, the team behind Auxo promised that their tweak would be themeable, and while we didn’t see any themes to coincide with its release, theme designers are begining to publish their work to Cydia.
One of the first Auxo themes available on Cydia is Auxo Glasklart. Like most themes, it uses WinterBoard as a framework. How do Auxo themes function and feel? Take a look inside as we take Auxo Glasklart for a ride… Read More
ayecon — the high resolution WinterBoard theme from renowned designer, Surenix — is making its way to the iPad. Perhaps the worst kept secret in the theming community, ayecon for the iPad is very real, and it’s coming soon to a jailbroken iPad near you.
If you’re at all familiar with the small screen version of ayecon, then you will know just what to expect from the iPad version. Not much has changed here, but as you know, that’s entirely a good thing. Full video preview inside… Read More
ayecon, the highly anticipated WinterBoard theme from popular iOS theme designer, Surenix, just made its debut on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. To take advantage of the theme, you must have a Retina enabled iPhone or iPod touch, and be running iOS 5 or above.
As you no doubt noticed in our hands-on walkthrough, ayecon is a stunner in the looks department. Although I think our video does a good job at displaying the crazy amount of detail possessed by ayecon, it really needs to be witnessed in person to be totally appreciated.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not nearly as into theming my iPhone as I used to be, but ayecon has helped rekindle my interest somewhat. You can purchase it now for $2.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. Let us know what you think about it in the comments.
So what’s wrong with it? Speed, stability, you name it. WinterBoard has long been a scapegoat for jailbreak-related problems. But the utility may be worth a second look now, as it has just received a major update… Read More
