I jailbroke my iphone 5S using TaiG 2.1.0 (yes, the leaked version.), and lots of tweaks work fine. But there's a problem. Winterboard doesn't work. Well... At least for the homescfeen. The statusbar icons changed, but everything is the same. The theme I'm talking about is Flat6.

Works for me. Do you have "icon bundles" installed?

Works now. How do I hide the icon labels? Pretty sure it doesn't work... I'll look into springtomize and hideme8

(28 Jun '15, 10:58) Weeeesessss Weeeesessss's gravatar image

Both doesn't work. Alternatives?

(28 Jun '15, 11:02) Weeeesessss Weeeesessss's gravatar image

I'm just waiting for springtomize to be updated

Adding IconBundles solved my problem. For hiding labels I am using HideMe8.

Did u try the dfu restore???

(28 Jun '15, 20:54) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

Id rather avoid the restore if possible. Everything else is working perfect however i find it strange that the themes i put on is changing somethings but not applying the whe theme. Where do you browse for your themes??

(28 Jun '15, 21:42) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

In the themes section on the home page

If u have a problem you better restore before Apple drops iOS 8.4 and your stuck

(28 Jun '15, 21:56) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

So just restore and set it up from my backup and then jailbreak again

(28 Jun '15, 22:07) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

No. Don't set up from backup. Set up as new. There is where your problem is.

Itunes wont even detect my phone now and i updated it and uninstalled and computer sees it but not itunes. This is very frustrating

(29 Jun '15, 07:34) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

Ok i did everything everyone said even the dfu restore. Ridiculous. I give up. Thanks anyway for your help.

Are you on the updated version of taiG?

(28 Jun '15, 16:14) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

Yes i updated the substrate when it came out

(28 Jun '15, 17:48) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

I'd try to re install it. If that don't work I am stumped. It is working for me. I have my iPhone 6 and ipad3 themed

(28 Jun '15, 19:04) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

Im stumped too especially since it changes some things. Ill try reinstalling though. Thanks.

(28 Jun '15, 19:10) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

Also could be the theme. Try "amury" I know it works

(28 Jun '15, 19:37) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

I applied the amury and some things changed again like some of my icons but not my wallpaper. Its like there is something missing. I dont understand it.

(28 Jun '15, 21:47) fmasquith fmasquith's gravatar image

The wallpaper don't change unless you go into wallpapers and apply it

(29 Jun '15, 08:12) Shonc502 Shonc502's gravatar image

Actually I'm using TaiG 2.1

(28 Jun '15, 19:40) Weeeesessss Weeeesessss's gravatar image

I have the same problem, a few days ago the theme Ayeris was updated so i updated it. After that winterboard stopped functioning, ayeris isn't even showing up as an option in winterboard. I tried another theme and i themed everything except for the springboard icons.

I decided to full restore my iPhone and install the tweaks i wanted again, but it didn't work, it wasn't showing my theme, and if i tried to apply another theme it did everything except for my icons. So then I decided to full restore again, i now have a fully restored iPhone 5S iOs 8.4 with nothing on it except for winterboard, i tried the theme but it just isn't doing anything at all, Ayeris isn't showing up in winterboard and other themes aren't applying to my icons. I tried it with Iconbundles installed too but it doesn't have any effect.

Can someone please post a fix?
