DreamBoard: Promising Alternative To WinterBoard to Customize iPhone But..

iOS 4.3.1

Winterboard has been one of the best jailbreak apps to customize your iPhone, in fact it’s probably one of the reasons why users jailbreak their iPhone.

If you’re bored of the iPhone’s homescreen with all the app icons, you can checkout DreamBoard – a new jailbreak app that allows iOS device users to apply themes, which appears to be a promising alternative to Winterboard.

Here is a quick description of the jailbreak app:

Advanced Theming Platform. Take control over SpringBoard! Dreamboard lets you place anything from widgets to apps where ever you want. Theming is no longer limited to just icons, or having to resort to complicated setup themes involving Iconoclasm, SpringJumps, etc.

Dreamboard makes it easy to switch between any theme in just a few seconds. Simply launch, choose and apply! And, Dreamboard eliminates the long wait of having to restart Springboard everytime you make a change. No more resprings! Dreamboard includes a complementary copy of Endroid (HTC theme).

Note: Not compatible with iPad. Not recommended for iPhone 3G, iPod 2G, or iPod 3G 8GB. Tested on 4.1 and 4.2.1

Here are some screenshots of the customizations possible using Dreamboard.

As you will see in the video below, Dreamboard allows users to apply an Android OS theme quite easily:

DreamBoard is available on Cydia for $2.99. But note that the initial version (which was free) was quite buggy with the SpringBoard crashing quite often. Since then developer who goes by the YouTube handle – wyndwarrior019 has released a new version but after installing the new version, we are not able to change the theme (quite frustrating if you’ve paid $2.99 for it), reinstalling it also didn’t fix the issue.

We’ll let you know if a new version of the app resolves the issues, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
