http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2011/09/liontheme-150x275.jpg

The jailbreaking community has brought all sorts of interesting tweaks and hacks to iOS devices. Lion Ultimatum is functional theme for jailbroken iPhones that attempts to completely replicate the OS X user interface (http://lifehacker.com/5840190/make-your-jailbroken-iphone-run-like-os-x-with-the-lion-ultimatum-theme), not just with icons and a background, but with "fully usable Finder menus, stacks, launchpad, a scrollable dock, draggable windows, mission control, dashboard, and a customizable lock screen."

Lion Ultimatum is a free install for jailbroken iPhones. Lifehacker has installation instructions (http://lifehacker.com/5840190/make-your-jailbroken-iphone-run-like-os-x-with-the-lion-ultimatum-theme) for those interested in trying it out.

It is, however, more useful as a proof-of-concept than anything else, and shows why Apple redesigned the iOS user interface from the ground up to be touch-compatible, rather than simply shoehorning the OS X interface onto a smaller touchscreen.

Respect to the guys that developed this, it looks amazing and very clever. But, there's always one, I can't imagine it being good to use on a phone day to day. For an iPad and iPod touch I can really see it being great though.

It looks like it took an impressive amount of work, but what for, really?

While Lion looks better on an iPhone than on a Mac, it still just doesn't seem very useful.

(I'm running Lion, btw... there are some things I like... there are some things I hate... Missions Control, Full Screen Apps, and Resume all seem to impair productivity and drain battery. Expose was better, and I miss it sorely.)

It looks very awkward for a touch-based input device but it is a fantastic proof-of-concept.

It also demonstrates the amount of passion developers have for the iOS platform. I love it.

How do they impair productivity or battery life? If you don't like them you don't have to use them so they can't possibly impair your productivity, and even if you do use them what are they doing that will impair battery life?

I agree about missing Expose though.

Chronic dev team says they have a userland exploit for ios 5, that they ready to launch as soon as iphone 5 launches.

However, however any device iphone 4 and older, can be jailbroken on ios 5 via a bootrom exploit.

If this is what Apple had shown instead of the Springboard iOS back in 2007, iPhone would have been a failure. iPhone is successful due to it's ease of use.

This is not really practical for 99% of people, however there are people like me and the developers of this and many others who like to try new stuff and experiment, and find this amusing.

I used OS X Ultimatum for a few days but ultimately went back to my Winterboard theme of choice. It was fun to play with so I'll continue to check out new updates, but even as missing functionality is added in, the interface will likely remain too small for regular use by most people. Also, because you need to enable multiple Cydia apps and a Winterboard theme to alter the status bar, the process of enabling or disabling the theme may take longer than expected, so keep that in mind if your hope is to jump between themes quickly. As others have said, this would be a more useable theme on the iPad due to the larger size. If nothing else, it's certainly an impressive proof of concept and worth getting if you're into that sort of thing.

How do they impair productivity or battery life? If you don't like them you don't have to use them so they can't possibly impair your productivity, and even if you do use them what are they doing that will impair battery life?

I agree about missing Expose though.

They impair productivity by replacing Expose. With Expose, I was able to think "Hey, the safari window I'm looking at right now isn't the one I want to be looking at," hit the appropriate expose button (or click and hold on the Safari icon, another feature removed from Lion) and then click the correct safari window.

With Mission Control, after thinking that, I hit the mission control button, then I have to look around to find where my safari windows gathered, and then they're all obscuring each other so it takes longer to find the correct one, and eventually I get the right one. I estimate I waste several seconds with Mission Control each time that I wouldn't waste if Expose was still around.

As for battery life, I'm not certain about this, but I'm fairly certain that opening Xcode or iWork documents on my original Mac Book Air is a relatively demanding task. With Resume, when I launch Xcode, all three of the projects I had open previously open at once, only for me to have to close two of them because I really only wanted the one. So I waste time at least (I'd say projects average on taking 15 seconds to open), if not battery life.

I do like the graphical style of several of the applications... although I just remembered, Front Row, for no apparent reason, is uninstalled when you upgrade to Lion. Probably one of my top ten most used applications on my iMac (which I have instead of a TV,) and they simply removed it. Now I have to use DVD Player, which isn't as Apple Remote friendly. Doesn't really hamper performance or anything, just an annoyance of Lion.

I'm sorry but this is just stupid!

I get it appealing to nerds, but come on. As you can see, there is a reason Apple redesigned OS X's UI from the ground up for multi-touch. The traffic lights in OS X were already kind of small by mouse pointer standards, and seeing them on an iOS device meant for touch is just laughable lol. :roll eyes:

Hey, look on the bright side. Microsoft would probably think this is a good idea haha. :p

That's what App Exposť is for.

Use control + down-arrow instead of F3 to get your previous app-expose type functionality. It's in the Settings, under both Keyboard and Mission Control.
Am sure with more searching there's a way to switch the F3 key's action to this instead of all apps.

What an incredible amount of effort to prove Apple's point for them. So many fat-finger blunders in that trailer for all to see.

Anyone who has used a remote desktop tool on iOS already understands why you need a totally new interface for touch.

What phone are they demoing this on? The screen is larger than an iPhone 4, and if you look at the photo, there are 3 buttons on the left side on the screen.

Could this be an iPhone 5? I've heard they moved the mute switch to the right side. Maybe to make room for the third button? And what does this button do?


(I find this more exciting than running Lion on my 4- video was cool, but I'll stick with iOS 4 and 5 when it comes next month)

This is exactly what Microsoft did when making an OS for handheld devices - cramming Windows onto small screens. And it failed.

Imagine the amount of time used on this. They could - and should - have made something useful instead.

The theme is quite usable actually. The windows and the close buttons are ultra small, but it doesn't matter: if you click the upper left part of a window it will close that window. Hide and resizing of the window doesn't work (and you wouldn't want it to do that anyway). It's just a nice tweak and eye candy. I'm pretty amazed it's still usable but then again, this theme doesn't try to replace iOS in any way.

Expose is still there. It's just called Application Expose now for what they want. It's binded to Mouse 5 for me, works beautifully with XCode 3.2.6.

That's what App Exposť is for.

Or actually... Option + TAB... or wait, heck, was it Option + < to switch to the next application window? WTF Apple! I wish they could FINALLY implement WINDOW-switching like ANY other OS, dammit! (*)

I don't care what you call it, Expose, Mission Control, Launcher... swishy-swosh, move or slide the windows around as you wish for those users who fancy that.

But please, pleeaaase, with sugar on top, implement window switching the way it is meant to be: Option + TAB, and nothing else.

Otherwise anyone shows me how I can switch back to the window "3 window(**) ago" WITHIN 0.01 seconds (the time it takes me to hit ALT + TAB 3 times on other OSs) - and YES, I am the kind of user who quite often happens to have SEVERAL applications open, and EACH application has several main windows open and YES, I CAN remember what window I was using "3 window ago"). And please NO ******** ANIMATIONS in between!


(*) Please don't mention any OS extensions worth 20 bucks to re-implement which any other OS is capable of since last century!

(**) Yes, you're right, I spelled WINDOW, NOT APPLICATION!

I was able to install it for free:

- install Dreamboard 1.1.4 via Cydia (use the modmyi repo)
- open Dreamboard
- install OSX Ultimatum

Fairly nice, kinda gimmicky, takes getting used to, but great proof of concept. Have fun fellow tweakers :)

It's undeniably cool, but an incredible kludge to put the desktop interface on an iDevice. Look at the video! The menus are unmanageable. It's like Windows' version of touch: in Windows 7, you can put a touch layer above a standard windows app, and good luck finding the place to click with your finger. Same here: the finger model clicks without hitting. I'm sure they edited out the times when he clicked on the wrong menu.

OSX menus ≠ phone interface.

Port this to iPad and I....*I* will buy one. JUST FOR this. Just to have a taste of what Apple should have done.

Maybe the commands listed are working with a bluetooth apple keyboard connected to the iphone?

Anyhow, I installed this and it's freaking awesome. It has a finder, where you can have your apps and games in different folders etc, you can put apps in the desktop, in the favorites folder (left from the trash can).
The problem is you can't change the dock apps. Oh and it also has a safari windowed version (like OSX) which you can open from the mission control!
There's also launchpad, although it's not as good as the iphone's normal desktop, for the only reason that you can't make folders.

I recommend it to anyone who wants his iphone to look a bit different :)

A question to other people using it: Does your dashboard work? Mine shows the clock and calendar, but the top widget (I guess it's weather?) doesn't work... Any solutions to that?
