    Just downloaded the upgraded Winterboard from Cydia and it runs great on the iPad. Saurik has even included a proof of concept theme with font changes and rotating wallpapers. The flood gates have officially burst open for the visual overhaul of the iPad.

    Enjoy and thanks Saurik!

    I just tried the updated version of winter board and it is giving me the same issues as mywi did with turning my iPad into a giant iPhone. Also when I move app icons around it moves an icon to the side when I want to move it down. All the directions are messed up on the screen. I would stay away from winter board for now until we get some themes out as well as another update for winter board.

    A respring will fix the "giant iphone" appearance.

    I have no other problems with it. I even tried out a few of my iPhone themes but they looked bad because the icons weren't created to be this big.

    Yes a respiring will fix it, but every time you reboot the iPad it will look the same until u respring again.

    I've tried respringing, rebooting, everything that i know of except a restore. My ipad still stuck in "ipod look" or "iphone look". 32gb wifi only ipad.

    It did this after an cydia update this morning..winterboard, sbssettings, etc. When i open cydia, i can not click any of the tabs at the bottom, like "manage", was gonna uninstall winterboard to see what happens, but can't do that either.

    Need help.
    Peace,

    same for me. respring fixed the big iphone look. however when moving the icons around i have to use portrait mode due to the funky behavior in landscape mode like you mentioned.

    Is everyone having the giant iphone look problem or is it just some people? As it is now, I can have things looking the way I want, with all my icons in order, 6 icon dock, etc. UNTIL I reboot for some reason. Upon reboot, its small icons, small 4-icon dock in the bott left corner, etc. This is easily fixed by a respring BUT I have to arrange my icons all over again, which is a PITA.

    Again, is this everyone or just some?

    No it does not. I attempted to install it and my iPad ended up getting caught up in an infinite loop of springboard crashes.

    I only used the icons, i didn't use the entire theme.. I was afraid of having similar issues if I attempted a complete install of all aspects of the theme.

    How the hell is anyone using any themes or even the icons from themes? Anytime I go in winterboard and turn on a theme, all it does is make my background iPhone sized in the upper left corner. No icons change Even when I turn on a theme that allows you to turn on icons only (like glasklart), none of the icons change. Even the Saurik theme doesn't change a damn thing.

    Please, what am i missing here?
