BlizzardBoard for TrollStore unlocks app icon theming on non-jailbroken devices

BlizzardBoard is a new app for jailbroken and non-jailbroken iPhones that can be installed by way of TrollStore to theme Home Screen app icons.

BlizzardBoard Twitter Release

Launched mid-last night by developer Benjamin Hornbeck (@AppInstalleriOS), BlizzardBoard uses existing theme bundles and applies them to your Home Screen.

It would appear that BlizzardBoard users can acquire theme .deb files and convert them to .zip files before moving them to /var/mobile/Themes with Filza. Once there, BlizzardBoard can utilize them:

Conveniently enough for TrollStore users, a special version of Filza is available for jailed devices in addition to the one that can be installed via a package manager app on jailbroken devices.

It seems as though BlizzardBoard utilizes a similar mechanism as the Shortcuts app does for changing app icons, so this means you won’t have icon notification badges as you would when theming icons via SnowBoard on a jailbroken device. One perk, however, is that BlizzardBoard doesn’t display the banner after every app launch like the Shortcuts app does.

The .deb files for free themes can be sourced from iOS Repo Updates. Paid themes can be sourced from their respective developers upon request.

As for whether you should try BlizzardBoard or not, that’s entirely up to you. The concept seems like a cool way to utilize TrollStore on non-jailbroken handsets, but it’s worth mentioning that some users have taken to /r/jailbreak to report blank icon issues with the initial release, while others have reported respring loops. It may be worth waiting for fixes to these problems before hopping onboard.
