The Top 5 Winterboaard Themes For iOS 7

Since iOS 7 untethered jailbreak is here, many users kept asking me to write a post about the best Winterboard themes for iOS 7 and I hope yo really love my opinion. Most of you know that Winterboard has just received an update to support iOS 7 and A7 devices. Until now there is still a group of popular themes didn't update to iOS 7.

So let us start:

1) Zanilla 2
There is not much else to say about this theme asides from the fact that it’s absolutely beautiful. While many third-party apps still require custom icons, which will be added over time, the ones that are currently themed look very good. Zanilla 2 has drop shadows much like Solstice does below, and the general color scheme of this theme is quite nice. Surprisingly, Zanilla 2 is currently without a home on Cydia. To get this theme, you’ll have to download it from this deviantART page and manually place the Zanilla.theme file in the Winterboard directory /Library/Themes/ using a tool such as iFile, iExplorer or iFunBox. Expect it to hit a repository soon.

2) Soft Remix For iOS 7
Looking for a simple HD theme for your iPhone ? Probably Soft Remix for iOS 7 theme is the best one you can use for your device. Soft Remix for iOS 7 is a new take on the popular Suave HD theme. The theme changes almost all your applications and make the icons look slightly smaller, with so-called “squircle” edges, and has custom icons for some apps I wasn’t expecting—BlackBerry Messenger, IMDb, SoundCloud and a few others. Third-party apps without custom icons don’t stand out like an eyesore with this theme, and more icon requests are being fulfilled by designer Eduardo Lopez as we speak. Soft Remix for iOS 7 is free on Cydia in the BigBoss repository.

3) M'flat 
Cydia store is full of M’flat icons themes that many users love to install it. So I decided to choose one of them for you. M’flat in my opinion is a nature-oriented theme, with lots of off-green, grey, blue and outdoors icons. Better yet, even more icons are in the process of being added. Since this is another theme not hosted on Cydia yet, you’ll need to manually place the M’flat iOS 7.theme file in the Winterboard directory /Library/Themes/ using a tool such as iFile, iExplorer or iFunBox.

4) Solstice
Solstice takes the stock iOS 7 icons and redefines them with long shadows and a slightly less eye-popping color palette. The theme currently supports over 90 apps, with designer John Bussell vowing to add more every day. A shortlist of popular third-party apps with custom icons so far includes Alien Blue, Facebook, Google Maps, Rdio, SoundCloud, Twitter, Vine, WhatsApp and YouTube. Solstice is free on Cydia in the ModMyi repository.

5) Space Blueberry
Space Blueberry is a Winterboard theme that we've previously covered it, the theme is designed by Gionata gives over 70 of your Home screen icons a slightly more cartoon or flat appearance. The new and improved Game Center, Music, Reminders and Safari icons look much better in particular, compared to their original designs.

You can give it a try by downloading the theme from Cydia store for free via Modmyi repo... 

NOTE: The theme doesn't yet support iPad. 

Final thoughts

While most of the themes listed above should function properly on all iOS 7 devices, including the iPhone 5s, your personal mileage may vary. A noteworthy theme not mentioned in the list above is NextGenUI, available on the Cydia Store for $1.99. Moreover, renowned graphic designer Surenix has confirmed that he will soon be testing and optimizing the insanely popular theme ayecon for iOS 7. Stay tuned for that.

If you like what you’ve seen here, please consider supporting the growing community of iOS designers by either purchasing a paid theme, donating to those that offer their work for free, or saying thank you. Every bit of support that these designers receive motivates them to work on additional icon requests and future projects for the benefit of all of us. Most designers offer various methods of making a donation, and leaving one is a great way to show a small token of appreciation.
