    Default What happened to Customize app?
    I fell off the jailbreak bandwagon back in 2009 when the 3GS came out...I was on a 3G iPhone and it was just too slow to keep my jailbreak tweaks. I used to use Customize app. But now customizeapp.com is a parked domain. Thespicychicken.com is some blog now and it hasn't been updated in a year. So, I don't know where along the timeline between 2009 and 2010 that Customize disappeared, but, it's gone and I'm trying to figure out what happened.

    Winterboard, for lack of a better word, sucks. Customize was a much better experience. Is there anything else comparable out? Did it change to something else?

    Any help would be appreciated. I've been rocking an iPhone 4 for almost a year now and miss the ability to change text strings, icons, layout etc. all within a single app. Customize was the best. Just trying to find out what happened.


    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Many things changed within iOS itself. Sometimes it becomes hard to keep up with the changes and trying to keep them from becoming a load on the device itself.

    So did the developer just quit making the app? Are users really stuck to downloading multiple theme packs and different tweaks to change different stuff manually? No all-in-one solution? That sucks...but, I guess without the devs I'd have nothing at all.

    Not sure myself what happened to it. But there are a couple theme solutions. But as for tweaks yes they are done indivudually now.

    Dreamboard just came out and is not bad.

    Thanks for chiming in again, and quickly

    I had Dreamboard installed before, tried a couple of android themes but they were just for show. I guess I'll give them another go now that DB has been out a couple months.

    ThemeIT is not a bad theme store either.
