Today I’d like to show all of you readers out there a real perk of jailbreaking the iPod Touch, Themes.

This is just a tid bit of the possibilities available with customizing your iPod.

With Saurik’s Winterboard, theming quite easy on 2.x or whatever version you might happen to be running.

For those who would like to customize iPhone with new icon, wallpapers and themes, here there is the most recommended application available in Cydia. It’s called Winterboard. Your iPhone 2.0 must already unlocked/jailbroken in order to use WinterBoard. Winterboard on iPhone 2.0 (like its predecessor Summerboard for iPhone 1.1.4) is an iPhone theme manager that allows you to change any WinterBoard/SummerBoard theme on iPhone.

To install WInterboard trough Cydia is very easy, just follow a few step below:

Step 1: Go to “Cydia” and select “sections” on haptic menu

RDSBC’s Weblog › Edit — WordPressCydia

Winterboard Installation

Step2: Select “System” category and select “winterboard”. After installation your iPhone will be restarted automatically.

These are a few themes such as AquaFlivor and Leaf for example.
