OverBoard Updated to Support Folder Icons on iOS 5


iOS hacker Ryan Petrich has updated his OverBoard jailbreak tweak to include support for Newsstand and folder icons on iOS 5. OverBoard is designed to show an overview of each of your iOS device’s home screen pages, allowing for you to jump between them quickly. It also extends the normal limit that Apple sets on the number of home screen pages you can have.

The tweak is fully customizable, with support for WinterBoard themes and multiple activation methods. By using Activator, also developed by Petrich, you can set OverBoard to activate by using the home button, tapping a home screen icon, pinching, and more. OverBoard 1.2.9, compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, can be purchased from the Cydia Store for $1.99 under the BigBoss repository.

WinterBoard Gains iOS 5 Compatibility

If you own a jailbroken device on iOS 5 then you’ll be happy to hear that Saurik’s theming app WinterBoard is now fully compatible with iOS 5. It took about a week of beta testing to reach this stage, but things should run smoothly now.

As always, WinterBoard is available in Cydia for free – so go download it today!

Update: Even though things seem to be running smoothly, one of our forum members is having an issue with the app. It seems to be respringing his device upon launch. While this may not occur on some devices, it is worth noting that there may be an issue with the app.

Cydia Review: Dreamboard – A Revolutionary Winterboard Alternative

Dreamboard, $2.99 in the Cydia Store, is a dynamic alternative to the popular theme manager Winterboard. The app gives power to the theme creators and users in ways Winterboard cannot. It allows for theme makers to create themes without the worry of having their users bail on them because of the complexity in installing their themes. Dreamboard gets rid of third-party tweaks like Iconoclasm, iBlank, and many others. You no longer need to respring to apply your themes!

The app allows designers to create what they want without having to use other third-party tweaks. Users no longer need to worry about having to install the theme, or tweak it so it can work the way the designer intended. Dreamboard takes care of all that and allows for a simple, clean transition. It takes two seconds to have a theme applied. Transitioning from your Dreamboard theme to your default one is also made extremely easy.
