BackBoard - Smart Theme Installer
Theming the easy way...
Choose from an ever growing collection of themes, all of which install within seconds...
Note: Backboard does not supply or download the actually themes for you. You must install/purchase them from cydia first before you can use backboard to install.
Watch it in action!
- One click installation
- Fast theme switching
- Backup and restore
- Theming security
- Iconoclasm support
- Dependency Checker
- Simple layout, with theme preview
- Custom installers that can link to backboard
Backboard is designed to help new jailbreakers and lazy people (like me) to install themes that would require complex setups. Often times when installing a navigational based theme, it would take hours to re-arrange icons, organize applications, and SSH files. Backboard eliminates this stress of having to do-it-yourself and instead you simply launch the app, choose a theme you would like, and tap on it. Once your device resprings, it will be loaded with the new theme ready to go. Backboard also has a built-in backup and restore system. Suppose you had installed a theme through backboard and decide to customize it to your preferred look. Once you remove the theme, Backboard saves your customized settings and if you ever return to that theme, it will apply your customization back.
With the latest outbreak of theming piracy in other forums, it is best to add piracy protection you your themes. Backboard has a blacklisting system that will check my servers every time a theme installation is made. This way, I can live update the list if new pirated themes were to be released, without having to update the app itself. If you are a theme developer, then adding you theme to Backboard can be done through a single email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are interested in beta testing, read the Getting started guide here (includes download link):
Oh yeah, BackBoard will be free.

Do you have to personally setup these theme's on your side Wynd?
So if I add my theme's to your Server, all someone will have to do is Buy my theme off Cydia or Rock and then it is automatically recognized in Backboard?
How will this protect against someone downloading it off Rock and just releasing the files?
I am just a little confused on how all this is going to work, But damn it sounds like you just broke the frontier again.

I think I'm crying...
... Beautiful. EXACTLY what we need right now.
If this is as functional as you say it will be, I will totally support this app 100% and even create some themes that REQUIRE it.#eli7e revived me

Holy crapola, I am amazed everyday the leaps our theming community has taken. This is just what many people like me need because of changing several times a week to another theme (it's a girls prerogative ya know). So very innovative. Love it.

Dosnt stop piracy,cus anyone can share the theme anyway.
It will not stop people to install a shared,pirated theme the normal way,they just cant use this app with a pirated theme.
Does anyone read my post on the piracy problem thread,page 10?
For me,is the only way to fight this pirats,and is working great for me.
Dont get mad at me,is how I see things,and Im looking to the reality.Please,take 2 minutes of your time and read my post:
I know BlueMetal is doing the same,and he have the people working for him,why?cus he is cooperating to the comunity,he's doing a great job.Please,read my post.
Love you all.

wow.. thats amazing!
pleassseee tell me this doesnt need winterboard and that its more efficient then winterboard?
06-01-2010, 07:06 AM #15
Wynd said that there is a anti piracy measures in Backboard, he is going to share how they work to the themers that use Backboard in their theme's.
I myself don't understand how it is going to work, but its worth a shot.
And still...that video was amazing...Bye bye winterboard. I wonder if they have interoperability problems?
Wynd I got a spare iPhone I don't mind restoring to test this out!
06-01-2010, 10:17 AM #16
Well,if a theme created for this dosnt work in any way without it,then Is worth the change.But wath about people that legally owns the theme and want to share it to his wife,brother or best friend.
06-01-2010, 11:09 AM #17
Guys, this app still required winterboard. It doesn't replace winterboard, it works in conjunction with it.#eli7e revived me
06-01-2010, 01:40 PM #18
And thats the problem,anyone can take the theme and shareit,people will not mind to make the prosses to set up,as long they have the theme.And eaven with an encripted theme that requires this app,someone will crack the theme just to shareit.
There has to be something else.
Still,is a very nice concept for saving time swaping themes.
