It's been a while since I checked around to see what was new in the iOS 6 Jailbreak themeing for iPhone 5, 4S, but it appears some new tweaks, LS themes, icon sets and Cydia winterboard add-ons have arrived which are helping themers become even more creative in their set-ups. I decided to take a browse around Reddit, just to see what themers were up to with these new jailbreak tools and found quite a few unique iPhone 5 and 4S setups you might want to emulate. Below are seven new Cydia winterboard theme ideas the iOSthemes reddit jailbreak community has come up with that caught my eye. Though you may not want to replicate a given theme in its entirety, chances are there will be some things you may want to adopt for your own themeing. Of course the subreddit iOSthemes is an awesome place not only to find ideas but also to get help during the themeing of your iOS jailbroken device, including iPads and iPods. To my knowledge the themes featured are made specifically for iOS 6 and above users but there is chance iOS 5 users as well as those with iPhone 4 can do the same thing.

This theme caught my eye because of the way the pages roll out. I wasn't aware this was possible. Plus I think the colored textured backgrounds are pretty cool. Check it out, along with directions and tweak needs for how to do it below.

HOW TO DO IT: (Cydia and Winterboard Tweak Needs)

- Here are the Lockscreen clock and JellyClock I made. Installation instructions are in the Readme.txt Download here: http://cl.ly/2u1M1k1E460S

- You need LockHTML 2 for the lockscreen clock.

- SSH into your device and copy Jelly Belly.theme to /private/var/mobile/Library/LockHTML
The fonts are included, and require no installation.

- You need Dashboard X and JellyClock for the MIUI Analog clock.
SSH into your device and copy MIUI.clock to /Library/JellyClock/

- Apply the themes with the respective tweaks, and you should be good to go. You can use Iconoclasm or Gridlock to make room for the clock. Personally, I use Iconoclasm.

- Keyboard: WP7 Gray 2 (US) found in Cydia using color keyboard. Then using colour keyboard select black-cyan (or any other colour according to your preference).

- NC theme is Climacons NC weather or the weather widget and the overall theme is Noisy Elegance NC Theme (both found on cydia).

- The blurriness is from BlurriedNCBackground (again on cydia).

- Icons are custom Jaku found on the jaku repo. The wifi icon can be downloaded from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hc5gk9dhmjvb5d9/wifi.zip

How do you change the wallpaper?

- Assuming you have the wallpaper saved to your camera role, open ifile (Cydia Tweak) and go into var/mobile/media/DCIM/100Apple and copy the file of the wallpaper. Next go into var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/dslk-blackandwhite.theme. Now paste the wallpaper file into that folder and rename it to whatever the current background is (in this case bg.png
