• Saurik Releases an iOS 8-compatible WinterBoard in Cydia



    On Wednesday, WinterBoard, the popular theming platform for jailbroken iOS devices, has officially been updated to support the iOS 8 jailbreak. As of version 0.9.3916, iOS 8 users can now install and use WinterBoard for their theming desires. Saurik took to Twitter this morning to announce the exciting news:



    In addition to support for iOS 8, version 0.9.3916 of WinterBoard also adds support for theming the contents of Assets.car files in the iOS 8 device. Also, the update brings some additional features to iOS 7 users as well.

    Many theme creators have been preparing themes for iOS 8, and it won't be long now until they are released to the public in Cydia.

    Saurik credits @Surenix, @coolstar, @Matchstic, and @JunesiPhone for their help in making this WinterBoard update possible.

    If you want to grab WinterBoard for iOS 8, it's available for free right now in Cydia!

      I love what Winterboard can do, but I always seemed to have issues out of it. I'll give it another go I suppose when more themes get pushed out.

      I'm still waiting on ProWidgets! Love that dang tweak. Also, could use some Action Menu Plus.

      Look under settings.app, the icon is hidden on mine as well.

      I just updated winterboard and my clear icons on the homescreen don't work anymore. Is there also a way to add a custom lock sound for ios 8? I know on ios 7 it worked.

      To change the lock sound, simply SSH into your phone, then follow this path:
      System - library - audio - uisounds- LOCK.CAF

      Change the lock.caf file. You can use your own .aif, just change the extension to .caf.
      Hope that helps.

      I used to love to theme my phone when themes could make all apps look part of the theme not only the stock apps

      Read the update notes. @Saurik stated that there will no longer be a springboard icon and to make changes in settings.
