    Is WinterBoard the same as the old SummerBoard, but it only allows customization of the wallpaper/background? Does it permit customization of icons, and can SummerBoard themes be used with WinterBoard to modify the background/dock/icons? If so, how can we do that? It's sad that all of these apps are placed on these installers without any detailed explanations! Also, is Customize the old SummerBoard (allowing for modifications of background/dock/icons)? Is Customize working well or is it buggy? It seems like a lot of apps are buggy under firmware 2.0. )

    I know that Kate/Caterpillar also allowed modifications of backgrounds. Has anybody used Kate on an iPhone 3G with firmware 2.0? Is it still buggy?

    Finally, is there an app that reorders the applications (both AppStore and jailbroken) on the SpringBoard (in alphabetical order or in any other order)?

    I had a first gen iPhone and installed many jailbroken apps. It seems like there is not much interest now for jailbroken apps, as the number seems to have dwindled substantially, and I cannot believe that a new Installer (non-beta) hasn't been released yet! I know that it is being revamped, but the delay is making it difficult to install jailbroken apps. Thank you for any input.

    Well WinterBoard is way better then SummerBoard. It does everything SummerBoard used to do anda lot more.
    Its not buggy, its clean and works like a charm. With WB you can change from wallpapers to Top Bar with just a info.plist file. You can change the font, the color of the font, just creating a info.plist file. Its 100% Compatible with SB. Just place SB themes you have in the same place as before(if im not wrong "/var/mobile/Library/SummerBoard/") and WB finds it.

    About Customize, its working very well. The only problem is that their server is having some problems, so sometimes it wont download your themes. But it works very well, you can change everything like the "old" 2.0 Customize. The only problem is that it does change the SpringBoard Wallpaper(since this was done by SB) but it will copy your wallpaper to a new WB theme. So if you set this new theme on WB, then you are good to go.

    I still think that WinterBoard can be confusing as shit.
    The way I see it, since you can 'check' multiple themes, one should overwrite the other's setting when it's placed after.
    So say you wanted a black theme but with your user wallpaper, then user wallpaper should be checked just as well as the black theme, and placed after it to override the black theme wallpaper.

    Yet this does not work. SummerBoard had the same theme listing, but it was nicer as it allowed you to say what should or shouldn't be modified theme wise, without having to go through the command line and hacks.


    Customize simply locks up my phone (server issues?? wtf) and is therefore wayyyy out of the question.



    ps: I take that back - I guess the first thing enabled is what takes precedence on the board... still kinda confusing though.

    AFAIK though Summerboard is gone and there is no chance of it coming to 2.0. Therefore we had better just get on with Winterboard. Its open source too right?
