    Default All things ANEMONE (the alternative to WinterBoard)
    Now that Anemone is out in public alpha/beta why don't we talk about our experiences here and what things are working in it in comparison to Winterboard and what things are not.

    The average user probably shouldn't put their phone at risk and nothing talked about here can be held against us. Lol! Try at your own risk! But since we have a current firmware that still jailbreakable I think were in good standing.

    What are your experiences with Anemone so far?

    Get Anemone by adding this repo: https://anemonetheming.com/nightly/

    DO NOT uninstall Winterboard first. You install Anemone, respring, and then you can uninstall IconOmatic, Iconbundles, all the Classic stuff, and Winterboard.

    And instructions on using Anemone are here:
    Anemone User Instructions

    The beta link has been out for over 2 weeks, bro - not just since Saturday. People wanting to talk about their experiences were being asked not to discuss it in the theme threads. So I started one here. I'm sure users will be very grateful not to have to leave MMi to chat about it. And when the dev is ready to make his own thread.. I'll have Simon close this one.. No big... Chill, bro.

    I really don't see the need for this. Winterboard works and works well. If it ain't broke, dont fix it. I welcome any persuaders!

    Actually Winterboard has been very broken since iOS 7.. where we lost about 50% of the UI themability that we had up through iOS6.. Anemone claims to bring back 90-95% of that UI themability.. That's why MANY modders and users will be interested.. eventually..

    So many folks need to react and share personal thoughts on stuff they don't like.
    So just don't react in here.

    As far as I understand, Saurik gave up on Winterboard, so I am more than happy, that an alternative is on it's way...

    I wouldn't say 'gave up on it'.. It and Cydia are still his signature products... But let's just say -- Saurik's goals for the community and not always what's best for the community... even though he'd very much disagree with me there... There's been a monopoly on a theme-running player for many years now. WB has been the only game in town. So naturally (just like in the business world) the products atrophies as it's being limited by only one company or person's vision.. Competition is ALWAYS good for the people!

    Agreed, he made it compatible with IOS 8, but that's about it, right. But for all other goodies, which we need to theme properly IOS 8, someone else was responsible , starting with Coolstar....

    Coolstar is responsible, in a way, for the Winterboard iOS 8 update. He pissed off Saurik enough with Themelib (or early versions of it) that he updated WB with .car support based on Coolstar's method.

    And let's not forget that the whole underlying coding model for Anemone was really Matchstik's Equinox.

    So does Anemone act like old WB? When we didn't need separate tweaks for our LS? What about SBHTML?

    Thanks for resurrecting this thread, Mav! Good time for it... Seeing as Anemone seems in full swing in some theme threads like Blue's new AIR theme - which he's fully supporting for Anemone and WB.

    Yes - Anemone brings back a lot if not all the UI theming functionality of WB from iOS5/iOS6 days - that Saurik stopped supporting - but that other tweak developers added back as jailbreak tweaks later. And then themelib did earlier this year.

    SBHTML/GB+ and LS widget players are still needed as HTML playback is not supported in Anemone or WB.

    Though there are many that are way more knowledgeable about Anemone than I am - like Blue, Krima, OrangeFreddie and King_O_Hill - what I've ascertained so far is that:
    1) Anemone currently plays every theme that Winterboard can
    2) Anemone is one tweak that replaces several in the combo WB + Classic Folders + Classic Dock + Classic Badges + Classic Dock +themelib + , etc, so that can 'allegedly' increase efficiency boosting battery performance and minimize RAM use (all alleged unproven claims so far).
    3) Anemone has plans for features that WB can NOT currently do

    On #3 there - I think that's where most people will be the most interested. Though I don't know of any UNIQUE new theming things Anemone can do that WB can't..

    So hopefully some of the Anemone experts - maybe even COolStar himself will pop in here and help us a bit. Coolstar has his own Twitter channel just for Anemone support. But not a thread here. I don't remember the Twitter handle right now. Let me find it.

    The old ability of simply enabling a HTML LS in WB without an additional tweak would def be a ram reducer
