Winterboard Not Working? Fix it and Install Best 10 Themes for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

Winterboard  and Dreamboard has been updated for iOS 11.1.2 compatible iOS Devices. Now, its possible to install themes on iPhone, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPod Touch…

Since iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak was released, custom themes were not supported, because Winterboard was not updated for iOS 9.1. Actually, PanGu jailbreak team, had released iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak overnight suddenly. Saurik, the creator of Cydia and Winterboard, had no clue or option rather than updating Cydia substrate and Winterboard for iOS 9.1.

And, finally Winterboard has been released for all iOS 11.1.2 compatible iDevices. The good news for 64-bit iDevices owner such as iPhone and iPad Air, iPad Mini, because, they can also now install a variety of Cydia Themes using Winterboard. Additionally, it fully supports Summerboard Themes too.

Update Winterboard Right Now

Make sure that you have updated mobile substrate to Cydia Substrate with the latest fix. Follow the steps to install Winterboard update…

  • Jailbreak your iOS 11.1.2 iDevice using PanGu iOS 9.1
  • Update your mobile substrate with Cydia Substrate (Did you upgrade to latest Cydia?)
  • Open Cydia and tap on Search
  • Type “Winterboard” and Go
  • Tap on Install button. Done


Winterboard has a wide range of Cydia themes and now it supports Summerboard themes too without any modification. I would recommend you to check the Best Winterboard Themes for iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone and iPod Touch.

If you’re still not able to install theme installer or getting annoying errors, let us know, we’ll try to report it for fix or try Dreamboard themes…

Update (Dec, 2015): Winterboard not working, you can use Weatherboard themes to make replacement until there is no solution for this theme installer.

    Can i remove Winterboard themes from my iPhone that i had installed before?

    • Fidel says:

      To remove a theme you should be able to just make sure it is unselected in winterboard, and then remove the package from Cydia (manage, -> packages -> select the theme you installed from the list -> click modify at the top -> remove)

  31. Billy says:

    How i can made my own Winterboard Theme?

    • Augustus Layton says:

      Did you download any themes from Cydia? You may have a corrupt installation of WinterBoard as well… go into Cydia, goto Manage at the bottom, Packages, find WinterBoard in the list, click Modify on the top right, Reinstall. Then restart the phone again (after it completes)

  32. Marcus says:

    I have found a few nice themes. Personally I’m a fan of iGlassSol found in Cydia
