Looking for Winterboard-like for iOS devices? You’ve come to the right place.
So recently you’ve seen people hiding their iPhone dock without having to jailbreak the device right? Well, here is something more exciting and beyond what we thought of.
As you may know, when an iPhone or iPad is not jailbroken, there aren’t a lot of things you can do with it in term of customization. Yes, you can install emulators and apps from 3rd-party services, but when it comes to changing the way your iOS device look, the options are limited.
For jailbroken iPhone, if you want to make your device look completely different, install Winterboard and a theme of your choice. Now, for non-jailbroken iOS devices, take a look at iSkin by TooLiPHoNe. This tool allows users to customize their iPhoen theme like changing the shapes of the app’s icons, colors, shadows or make it into an Android-inspired theme.
Everything is partially possible using the new iSkin app.
How to Change Your iOS Theme Without Jailbreak
Step 1: On your iPhone, open up Safari and go to http://iskin.tooliphone.net/
Step 2: Scroll down toward the middle of the page and find Browse all themes
Step 3: Select the theme you want to download > Application icons. This section will list some all the apps you’ve installed on your device. You will have the option to choose which one you like to change and which apps to keep as is
Step 4: After finalizing all the icons you wish to change, tap on Install icons
Step 5: Wait a few seconds and you’ll be redirected to a new page. As always, tap Install and then enter your passcode (if you have this option enabled) then Install again to confirm.
Step 6: Now select Done and you should see: Installation in progress…
After a few minutes, return to your home screen. What do you see? A whole new style isn’t it?
Since this tool is for non-jailbroken devices, please don’t expect it to work smoothly or provide action-packed features like Winterboard themes on Cydia.
Waited but nothing happens?
If you’re stuck on the “Please Wait!” screen, do know that the installation process will take about 30 seconds or so. After that, the Settings app should be popup followed by the Install Profile page.
If nothing happens, even if the Settings page doesn’t open up, then reload the original iSkin page and go through the setup again. That should fix the problem.
