So here is my ultimate theme for iPhone. I use it on my iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1. If you’re running an older version of iOS or a different device feel free to give it a go a let me know how it works out.
First off you need a jailbroken iPhone. Search online and you’ll find a number of tutorials to jailbreak your device.
Here’s an example tutorial to jailbreak iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1 http://www.redmondpie.com/fix-ios-5.0.1-untethered-jailbreak-bugs-with-new-redsn0w-0.9.10b3-update-now/
If your using iPhone 4S follow instructions here http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-iphone-4s-ipad-2-untethered-on-ios-5.0.1-using-absinthe/
So by now you should have a jailbroken iPhone with Cydia installed.
Next launch Cydia and add the following sources if you don’t already have them:
BigBoss – http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia
ModMyi – add source http://apt.modmyi.com
Add sources to Cydia by tapping the Manage Tab –> Tap Edit –> Tap Add –> Enter URL –> Tap Add Source –> wait for it load and your done.
Next search and install the following packages from Cydia.
Winterboard available on Cydia by Jay Freeman (saurik)
iMac iCons Theme – available on Cydia from BigBoss

Now take a break from loading Cydia packages and open winterboard by tapping the icon from springboard and tap Select Themes.
Select the following theme options:

Hit back and respiring your device.
