iPhone’s lock screen seem to be all the rage as of late in the jailbreaking world. Whether it be a lock screen theme like Peekly, or a lock screen tweak like Atom, jailbreak developers seem to be coming up with unique ways to redesign it.

If you are a fan of minimalism, then FlatIcons is a theme for all jailbroken iOS devices that is sure to make your head turn. FlatIcons isn’t a theme that transforms every aspect of your iPhone’s UI, but visually it’s a stunner.
Abstergo is a new jailbreak tweak that will change the way you manage your notifications not only from your iPhone’s Lock screen, but also anywhere in iOS.
Atom is a jailbreak tweak that aims at bringing expanded functionality to Lock Screen.
Developed by Tyler Nettleton and Surenix (developer of ayecon, the gold standard when it comes to iPhone themes), Atom allows users to not only slide to unlock the iPhone, but slide to Launch up to 6 different apps from the Lock screen.
Themes make up one of the largest categories in Cydia, and while they may not all be good. Aegis White is definitely a Cydia theme for your jailbroken iPhone that is worth checking out. By purchasing Aegis White for just $2.99 you get an additional theme free, Aegis HD.
Since the inception of the iPhone, the stock OS has been relatively unchanged in regards to how it looks. But that hasn’t stopped designers, and devs alike from re-creating the look and feel of their own UI and icons. The only problem for the most part, is they actually make the experience more difficult to use. Many themes slap the name of the designer all over it or make the icons way to similar which degrades the experience. For this reason I think Apple has truly done a great job with iOS.
