What is it?
Winterboard is a replacement for the Springboard.app on the iPhone/iPod touch. Previously named Summerboard on the older 1,X firmware, it provides customization of the interface. Functionality is a little more limited in comparison to Summerboard, but there’s new updates all the time.
– install full themes
– enable user wallpapers on main screen
– change the icon package
– customize the dock (eg. transparency)
– change the status bar look, add and hide icons on it
– it uses more resources than the Springboard.app
– crashes often
– only a few themes available at this time
– only 7 customizations included with the default installation
While it has great potential, installing Winterboard at this time is not for those who value reliability over the looks.
