SummerMode is only for older devices. Before Winterboard many themes were made for Summerboard. That option allows you to install older themes. However, you have a newer Retina device (i4s) which was never compatible with Summerboard. Winterboard however is compatible. Disable the option and leave it off.

Summerboard mode worked on all devices up till iOS 6, I'm sure saurik will at some point either remove or fix it. In the meantime, a lot of theme developers will be figuring out how to work around it.

I have the star trek lcars theme, and with summerboard mode on all winterboard does is go into safe mode on respring. With summboard mode off, all of the theme works except the icons do not change to match what they are supposed to be for the them. The icons stay at the stock image. Any suggestions?

yeah, the theme author needs to fix it so it doesn't require summerboard mode. :)

Hmm. I may have to revert back to ios 5.1.1 then. The theme author had to stop development and distribution of the theme due to a desist order from cbs.

Yeah same here with summerboard on the icons would change with the theme but with them off they stay to the stock
