    I'm sure by now some of you may have noticed I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with getting my phone to look as much like iOS 6 as possible. Every single theme in Cydia that is built for iOS 7 or 8 only themes a couple of icons.

    I'd be willing to make a generous donation to whoever may be interested in updating an existing one or building a new one with just the icons. I realize it's a lot of work and like I said, I wouldn't say thanks and disappear.

    If nobody here is interested in doing it could somebody maybe refer me to a website I might be able to find someone who might?

    Thanks!

    I can't help on this. But I will say that I find it interesting that as jailbreakers on iOS 6 way back when lots of people did their best to theme away iOS 6.

    Now that iOS 6 is gone lots of jailbreakers are trying to make their phones look stock iOS 6.

    This just has me scratching my head. :D

    I think iOS 6 was the best (I hate 7, 8 and 9) but even when I was using it I themed it my way and if I had another iPhone with iOS 6 on it and jailbroken I'd still do the same.

    I get the nostalgia (as I said, iOS 6 is the best version IMO) but it's just kind of interesting that lots of people seem to want the look of it now that it's gone.

    I just find it strange that there's so many themes for iOS 7 & 8 but nobody has thrown anything together for iOS 9.

    I don't miss the design a ton, I just liked certain elements of it compared to the ones today.

    For example, the dock. It's too obtrusive. The smallest thing I would do to it is use dock shift to make it a little more transparent, and a little darker. I don't want it to be completely gone, that just looks kind of weird, but something more subtle.

    I also am interested in classic dock, but using the modern option. It's like the old dock shape but still translucent.

    Oh there also is a lock screen tweak, don't remember what it was called, but it brought back the header for the time and the same bar for the bottom with slide to unlock. However it was translucent rather than shiny and black, and it had the round iOS 7.1 slider for slide to unlock. Kinda interesting in my opinion. I think it covered up a little too much in my opinion but the way it is now, it's too blank. Just text over a picture. Sometimes the text fails to stick out from the, wallpaper and it is annoying.

    This is the best I've been able to find. The top bar looks off to me.
