Top 10 Winterboard Themes for iPhone & iPod Touch of 2012

One of the best perks of jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad & iPod touch is undoubtedly the fact that it opens your device to a whole new level of customization with the best winterboard themes. You can't discuss about customization without mentioning theming on the iOS, and you can't talk about theming on the iOS without mentioning Winterboard. Winterboard is of course one of the many gifts of Jay "Saurik" Freeman to the jailbreak community. Now let's start the year right with some of the best high quality themes from Cydia. These are the Top 10 Winterboard Themes for iPhone of year, 2012.

Winterboard Themes

NOTE: All of these themes are tested to be working with iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, so you do not have to worry if it does work with iOS 5 as well. Keep in mind that sort order matters when it comes to Winterboard themes, so the checked themes on the top of the order will override the checked items below. Also, respringing/rebooting your device is a good practice whenever you find that some themes doesn't work properly.

Top Winterboard Themes

Wood Shelves Winterboard Theme

Now let's start with something a bit subtle. Wood Shelves theme for Winterboard basically adds a wooden shelf to your Springboard with a very similar look to iBooks. The effects are rather simple and it doesn't offer customized icons or sound. This a simple yet elegant theme that's perfect for those who are not looking to change much of their Springboard's look. (This is the top winterboard theme of Jaxov users).

This theme is designed to fully customize your iPhone and iPod touch. It has custom locksreens, wallpapers, icons, sliders, custom keyboard and tons of other customizations. It truly lives up to its name of being a fully loaded Winterboard theme. For the maximum effect of this theme, see to it that you also download the Apple Fully Loaded Pack 1 and 2.

inPulse (Retina)

If you are looking for a good theme for your device with Retina Display, then you can't go wrong with this particular theme. inPulse basically gives your icons a rounded chrome-metallic look and in turn it makes all the icons uniform in size. You can also choose to install the theme to customize other aspects of the iOS such as the lockscreen, folders, slide bar, iPod / Music interface and so on. Also available in non-retina version.

GlasKlart HD

Now for a theme that's nothing short of beautiful. GlasKlart HD incorporates a glass-like effect to most of your icons, badges, lockscreen sliders, popups and so on. As the interface is transparent, it will blend in nicely with your selected wallpaper regardless of its color.

Noki HD

Are you looking for that perfect theme that goes perfectly with your white iPhone 4? Well, consider your search to be over because here's Noki HD. This is a predominantly white-colored theme with a stylish and almost futuristic looking design. What else can I say? It is definitely one of the best white-colored theme out there. We also recommend that you also install some user mods specifically for the theme to achieve the best effect.

eXplos1on HD

Now for something truly jawdropping. eXplos1on HD is the perfect choice for those that are looking for relatively dark theme. This theme is huge and it changes pretty much every aspect of your old iOS to the point that it is almost unrecognizable. The concept behind the icons in particular is really innovative. The icons, the keyboard, the lockscreen, pretty much everything looks very sexy cool. Just be warned though, this is a fairly large theme in terms of size but it is definitely worth the download.

Now, talk about a highly detailed Winterboard theme, down to the custom icons, folders, iPod / Music interface, Calculator, Weather, Clock and so on. It has a really cool looking lockscreen as well. Another theme of choice for those who wants a dark but highly detailed theme. This is actually one of my favorite Winterboard themes as well.

Prestige HD

One of the most highest rated and often cited as the best Winterboard theme available and just by looking at it, you will immediately know what the fuss is all about. Prestige HD pretty much redesigns every aspect of the iOS. There are also many different mods available for the LiveClock, WeatherIcon, lockscreen, keyboard and many more. The reason why it is so popular among users is the fact that it looks so easy on the eyes, so you won't get tired of it after a few days. Prestige HD is a complete Winterboard theming solution with a touch of class. Also available in SD version for non-retina devices.

      Some full-featured Winterboard themes can do change the lockscreen, along with other iOS elements like the Notification Center and even apps like BiteSMS.

    The nicest theme I have found so far, and at least for me the most complete, is Chocolate HD.

    Tabathal309 years ago

    With the themes that theme the keyboard you will have to go in to the color keyboard settings to apply the theme to your keyboard!! If you don’t have kk I suggest you get it!! Also TIM(theme icon maker) for your icons that aren’t themed!! 

    Mac9 years, 1 month ago

    Does anyone know why my keyboard stayed the same after I installed the explosion theme? And 2 of my icons didn’t change like the rest. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Where i can download the picture that is in the background of 
    inPulse (Retina)?!?

    Corey Shaver9 years, 8 months ago

    I’m going to download the Prestige HD, VIP HD, Explos1on HD and InPulse when I get home tonight. I’ll switch between them every couple days to keep things interesting. I have Absolution installed now, and It’s nice, but folders don’t theme and it seems to drain the batter on my 4S. I’m hoping the VIP and Explos10n’s folder themes work for my device. I was looking for a COMPLETE theme, and I think I’ve found some very good candidates. 

    Thanks for posting this!
