5 Stunning Free Dreamboard Themes For iOS 5

Sick and bored of the conventional Winterboard themes? Not too excited about having to edit files in your iOS device to add some oomph to your otherwise boring themes? We’ve been there and we are right there with you when you say that it can give you a headache. Dreamboard, Winterboard’s counterpart is here to take the possibilities of theming your iOS device to a whole new level. No more manual file editing and downloading multiple Cydia tweaks to form one theme. Less clutter, less headache; this app has it all. The downside you ask? Well, not many themes are available in Cydia at the moment and almost 90% of those are paid, and rightly so; forming these themes can take up a lot of effort. Imagine not being able to pull it off with a step-by-step guide and ready-made tweaks. iNav HD users would know what we’re talking about.

More so, those who have moved onto iOS 5 and have their devices jailbroken will find that majority of the themes are no longer supported in iOS 5. This is why we here at Addictivetips, gathered up 5 of what we believe to be some of the finest free Dreamboard apps that are compatible with iOS 5 as well.

If you do not have Dreamboard installed, do so from Cydia. Once you have that, grab iFunbox to copy some of the themes to your phone. We’ll show you how. To install the themes from your PC to your iOS device:

  1. Run iFunbox and connect your iOS device via the USB cable to the PC.
  2. Once the device is seen connected, click Raw File System and find the folder named Dreamboard as shown below.iFunbox
  3. Now copy the theme (extract if compressed) to the Dreamboard Folder. Be careful that the folder you’re copying contains the theme files inside of the parent folder. For example if, OS7 contains another folder by the name of OS7, copy the later one.
  4. Once you’ve done copying the files, simply run Dreamboard and you will see the themes in the panel


Surprisingly, this theme isn’t a cheap Metro UI rip off. Swipe to the left and you will be taken to the apps list just like a Windows 7 device. OS7 also gives you the Pin and Unpin options so you can place your favorite or most used app on the homescreen and even move them up and down in order. An overall very slick and simple theme which looks brilliant on the Retina display.

While there is an Android look alike theme available by default in Dreamboard by the name of Endroid, the HTC HD2 theme is a few steps ahead. With a scrolling dockbar that can house whatever icons you choose to place on it, this theme can make accessing your app convenient and clutter free. Animated Weather and customizable wallpapers are part of the package as well.

This theme is not really practical to be honest, but is fun if you get the hang of it. It mimics you physical desk space and attempts to mimic the OSX as well, of course does not function like one incase you got too excited.
