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.
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
