- You probably have Cydia Impactor on your computer. If not download and install it using this link. Cydia Impactor is available for macOS, Windows, Linux (32-bit and 64-bit).
- Download ZipApp Free app from the App Store using this link. You can use any other app but for the sake of this guide, we’re using this app.
Step 1: Sideload FilzaEscaped IPA using Cydia Impactor
Launch Cydia Impactor on your computer. It will detect your iOS device. Drag the FilzaEscaped IPA file you had downloaded earlier on to its UI. Enter the Apple ID and password for your Apple Developer account when prompted, and wait for Cydia Impactor to sideload the signed app on your iOS device.
After it is done, you can verify if FilzaEscaped has been installed on your iOS device.

Step 2: Download Theme
Go to CydiaUpdates.com on your iOS device and search for your favorite theme.
Tap on the link for the deb file under Version History.
Tap Open the deb file in “ZipApp Free”.
Tap on the Yes button, when ZipApp Free app prompts you if you would like to decompress the file into the current directory.
You should now have the .theme folder.
Step 3: Install Theme
Open FilzaEscaped and select “Apps Manager”.
Go to /ZipApp Free/Documents/ImportedFiles and find the .theme folder.
Tap and holder on the .theme folder.
Navigate back to /bootstrap/Library/Themes folder, and paste the .theme folder by tapping on the Pasteboard button at the bottom.
Step 4: Apply The Theme
Next, launch Anemone from the Home screen which is also installed by the Electra Jailbreak.
You should see the theme you had copied in the list of themes in the left-hand sidebar.
Tap on it to select it, and then tap on Apply to apply the theme.
Step 5: Reboot and Re-Jailbreak
You can reboot your iOS device, and re-jailbreak it using Electra Jailbreak. That’s it your favorite theme should be working, and it should customize the look and feel of your iPhone or iPad. Note: You can also respring your iOS device at this stage, but we’ve seen that it doesn’t work always, so it is better to just reboot and re-jailbreak.
