iPhone Theme Creator For Jailbroken iPhone And iPod Touch

Are you bored of the default theme that comes with iPhone and want to create one of your own? Destructor95, the guy that earlier released ToolJail, an iPhone Jailbreak guide app has come up with a small tool that lets you create iPhone and iPod Touch themes easily.

In order to create your own theme, you need an iPhone wallpaper of size 320×480 px, a 320×91 px dock, and icons of size 59x61px each. All images have to be in PNG format, so you may want to convert your JPG, ICO or GIF images to PNG first before you go ahead. The program zip file includes a test theme folder with all the required PNG images for you to start with.

Creating a theme is as easy as dragging and dropping the images on to the iPhone Theme Creator. Each time you run the program, you are required to select the language (English, Spanish, or Italian).  The program screen contains a replication of iPhone screen, where you can drag and drop the various images.


First drop the iPhone wallpaper to any corner of the iPhone screen. Then drag and drop each icon to it’s respective location, as suggested by the captions. Don’t worry if you have dropped an icon in the wrong place, simply drop another icon in the same place and it will be overwritten. Here is how the program interface looks like after all the images given in the test theme folder have been dropped.


Once you are satisfied with your custom theme, give it a name and click the ‘Create Theme’ button. You will be asked to choose the destination folder to save the theme.

How To Change iPhone or iPod Touch Theme

Now that you have a brand new theme, you will want to apply it on your iPhone or iPod Touch. In order to do this, you need a jailbroken device, with Winterboard installed on it.

1. Use OpenSSH to connect your iPhone or iPod Touch with your PC.

2. Copy and paste the theme folder you just saved on your Computer to the folder Library/Themes on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

3. Apply the new theme using Winterboard (can be installed from Cydia on a jailbroken iPhone).
