iPhone 5, Gridlock2 (paid) and iWidgets (free)
If you want the large iWidgets icons to start apps: iWidgetTapper (free)
1. Enable the Shine theme and other optional add-ons at Winterboard
2. Place your icons below the shelf
3. Enable your favorite iWidgets
* What about the setup of the iWidgets ?
Please take a look at the images above. You can see a path/info where to setup each iWidget.
*Why doesn't my weather widget work ?
Donīt use ZIP codes or other codes Use only Yahoo weather location codes:
1. Open Yahoo! Weather - Weather Forecasts | Maps | News
2. Search for your city, press "GO"
3. At the addressbar of your browser youīll now see an address like this:
Schodelshohe Weather Forecasts | Maps | News - Yahoo! Weather693838/
This number at the end is your yahoo location code.
Now add it to the config.js file of SHINE Weather.theme and SHINE Lockscreen2.theme, respring, and it works
* Is this theme laggy ?
Not on a iPhone 4s or 5, even if it's fully loaded with all available gadgets itīs fast and smooth.
On a iPhone 4 you shouldn't use all included widgets and iWidgets at once (because of it's slower CPU and less RAM than on newer iPhones)
* Does it drain battery ?
Calculating and displaying graphics needs RAM and CPU power. That's a physical fact on any computer with any software. But I coded all widgets carefully and made all widgets, iWidgets and animations of SHINE optional. If you notice any issue just reduce the count of widgets or iWidgets you use.
* What are iWidgets and how do they work ?
iWidgets are free placeable widgets on your screen and scroll with the pages.
->Just long press anywhere on your screen and choose one or more Shine iWidgets (see Video) for each page. They are always placed right for the Shine layout. If you accidently moved one of it and want the right postion again, delete it and just enable it again.
* Why is the area around these iWidgets so large ?
Only when using the whole screen width each iWidget is always centered right on the shelf automatically. Users wanted that solution to keep it simple and user friendly.
* Can this iWidgets icons start apps ?
Yes, install the new free tweak "iWidgetTapper" from Cydia. You can allocate any iWidget a matching app or even a web address (e. g. Clock iWidget - Clock app).
NOTE: If you use iWidgetTapper make sure you DISABLE the "User Interaction" of all iWidgets.
*Why doesn't iWidget work for me ?
Users reported issues with Infiniboard: Donīt enable Infiniboard together with iWidgets. Other conflicts are not known.
* Why are some of my UI graphics or Icons (like Folderbackground, Player buttons) unthemed ?
They are themed, but it's a problem of chached/old graphics on iOS. Install and run "iCleaner" from Cydia and just delete the "Cache files".
* Why is my phone background and my Wallpaper (when opening a folder) unthemed ?
A general issue on Winterboard. To fix it: Open the Shine.theme folder, search for my "DefaultHomescreen.png" and "DefaultLockscreen.png" copy both with iFile to your Camera roll and then set each from the iPhone settings or the Camera Roll as your new Homescreen and Lockscreen wallpaper.
* Why are some Cydia app icons unthemed ?
Cydia app icons never use any icon mask. You can use the free Cydia app "Theme Icon Maker" (TIM). This app recognizes all unthemed Cydia apps icons, creates matching bundle folders for each and themes all your missing icons.
*Why doesnīt the WoodenMod work?
Because mods of any theme must be placed above the main theme at Winterboard.
For the Lockscreen themes there's a alternative Background with a wooden shelf stored at the folder "Extras" inside the Shine.theme folder.
*Do I need the Summerboard mode for this theme ?
No, only for some problematic icons, but not generally.
Please share and post here here new icons and iWidgets. Even if you use my code or graphics.
Itīs not allowed to use, release, post or sell graphics or code of Shine for any other theme or at other threads. If youīre not sure please send me a PM and ask for my permission. Thanks.

Nice job Blue!Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!
