Winterboard now compatible for iOS 5 [jailbreak]

If you are currently jailbroken on iOS 5 you can now return to skinning and theming your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your heart's content -- Saurik's most recent update to Winterboard (0.9.3901) adds iOS 5 compatibility.

Although Winterboard is now compatible with iOS 5 it still isn't safe to assume that all themes and skins are. As always, make sure you're reading the descriptions carefully. In most cases themes just don't apply properly if they haven't been made compatible but it's still good to check.

Anyone found any awesome themes that work with iOS 5 they want to recommend? Let us know!

iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution theme [Jailbreak]

iNitsua is back and this time it's with iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, the sequel to K. Nitsua and Zausser's original Twilight HD, this time with the fit, finish and UI crafting of Barsoverbeats, and over 20 gorgeous Retina Display wallpapers by K. Nitsua.

For those keeping track, it's the 7th iNitsua theme since 2009, and the features just keep getting better:

  • Highly animated HTML5 lockscreen
  • Lockscreen seemlessly integrates camera roll photo, or CPBitmapConv tweak, or custom SSH image with no need for HTML editing
  • Unprecedented 7 iconsets immediately available to choose from
  • Highly detailed "Prestige" iconset, each icon took 30 min - 1 hr to make
  • 7 icon color mods available at launch

Theming -- the ability to customize the look and feel of your iPhone, your way -- remains something unique to Jailbreak and with themes like iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, it remains one of the most compelling reasons to Jailbreak.

iNitsua Twilight 3volution by K. Nitsua and @barsoverbeatsAvailable now for iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4, with an iPad version to come. More screenshots after the break.

Theme It will bring theme store to iOS [Jailbreak]

Theme It is a new site and app (via Cydia) that will feature themes for iOS. Anyone currently jailbroken knows how big of a pain it can be weeding through themes and tweaks in Cydia. Hopefully having something like Theme It will reduce some of the clutter and allow users to more efficiently browse for quality themes.

Theme It boasts to provide only the highest quality themes to their users. They've already gotten some of the best theme creators on board in an attempt to offer a better option for browsing themes. The app will be available via Cydia and will have an actual website as well. The counter along the top of the site shows we have less than 2 days before launch.

I know I'm looking forward to seeing if this makes me more apt to install and download themes. I don't theme as much as I used to since weeding through Cydia for quality themes can be pretty time consuming. How many of you are excited to have a new way to browse and obtain new themes?

Demo video after the break!
