Winterboard is an application that is trying to fill in the gap of a missing summerboard in 2.0 untill it returns. for screenshots and little how to guide read on.

**you must restart your iphone after installation, before doing any of this or it will not work**

right now there is only one theme (if you wanna call it a theme) that comes with the installation of winterboard. all it installs is a background, but this can be fixed. you can download other themes that install a background, icons, status bar, the whole 9 yards.

just go back into cydia (after you have downloaded winterboard) and there are themes to chose from. you can preview one by clicking more info. once it is installed it will go directly to the winterboard category (no SSH involved). so go back to and choose the theme you want. done!

*i have had questions about exporting themes from customize and back into winterboard. for all wondering this cannot be done. i have tried and when you download a theme in customize and export it to winterboard it sets the iphone to its original backup. themes must be re-written for 2.0.Â

update: WinterBoard has just recieved an update that fixes the dock problems.Â

    I just got my IPhone 3G and installed winterboard on day 1. I decided to setup the fading wallpapers using the wallpaper.html file technique. Since doing that my phone seems to stay warmer than previously, so my question is, does it continue to fade through all the images (I have about 30) even when the phone is locked and the screen is off? Or, does it disable the fade routine when the phone locks? If not, is that on the list for future versions?

    I have a jailbroken original Iphone. Winterboard was working fine, but everytime I got a new theme via cydia, it installed but never showed up in winterboard. I then reinstalled winterboard to no avail. I removed it and then re installed it and now only have two listings in it. SOmething called BlackJainDim and Neurox Leopard. I never heard of those. How can i get new themese to show up?

    Update: I uninstalled every theme, winterboard and customize. Deleted the folders through SSH and then restarted my iphone. Reinstalled Winterboard and it has a blank screen when I run it. I reinstalled a theme to no avail, it doesn’t show up. Is there something else to delete besides apps/winterboard and library/themes?

    I’ve installed Winterboard tonight and have found that the phone funtion of the iPhone just will not work. The keypad appears, then disappears after a few seconds but will not let me select anything while it’s on. I can receive calls, but can’t make any! Running a 1st gen, unlocked iPhone on Orange running 2.1 firmware. Help, please!

    I just upgraded to 3.0 firmware on my 3g iphone and then used redsnow to jailbreak it again. I cannot not find winterboard to run themes anywhere now. I have cydia but cannot find it there to download, it tells me to download more sources but I don’t know the right source. Can anyone help with this? Thanks

    I have a iPod touch and I installed cydia no problem. Then I installed winterboard. In cydia it says that I have it but isn’t on my homescreen. I’ve installed and uninstalled winterboard but it doesn’t do anything. When I got cydia for the first time I got winterboard but didn’t know what it was so deleted it.
