    Hi Guys,


    I downloaded the z[ui 2012 theme via ithemesky on my iPhone 5 to see if it would be compatible yet.

    Unfortunately it wasn't on my iphone 5 which is annoying as i prefer this one !

    :(

    So i decided to uninstall the theme until it is.


    Going into Cydia and trying to uninstall via manage and packages did not show up the actual theme. :confused:

    I've resolved this by using ifile but I'm at a loss to why it couldn't be removed via the Cydia route ?

    Is it because i obtained the theme from ithemesky ?

    I usually use the themeit app with no issues.

    Do you guys have any suggestions for more repos for theme sites.

    IMO... all themes are compatable to the iPhone 5. You just have to modify LS and SB screen to fit the iPhone 5. I wanted to use Auros on my iPhone 5, but I couldn't download it from Cydia... even if was in my list as a paid app/themes. I ended up ssh'ing from my iPhone 4 to the computer, then ssh'ing it to my theme's folder in my iPhone 5. It looks so much better on my iPhone 5 than on my iPhone 4. Like nwmtnbiker said... modmyi is good source for iPhone 5 themes.

    All i did was stretch the SB and LS wallpaper to fit the iPhone 5 screen. The wallpaper I used on the screenshots in my link was pretty easy to do in photoshop. I just copied and pasted sections of the wallpaper and layered then on top. I just moved the sections up stretching the image, and using brightness/contrast to blend the images together. Once it looks like one piece and seamless, I merged all the top layers down making it one wallpaper image. Then I used iconoclasm and made my own iPHone 5 .plist files to fit the default 4x5 layout to use as a template to fit my theme wallpaper and the widgets use. I posted the iconoclasm iPhone 5 default 4x5 layout source a few days ago.
