Anemone is one of the best alternative to WinterBoard Themes Studio on iOS-based Cydia Store, has finally been updated to add “preliminary” compatibility and support for yalu102 iOS 10 to iOS 10.2 jailbreak. Skins or themes on iOS brings a fully-redesigned icon packages and of course, the overall changes to the folders, Lock screen and Home screen.
Since Anemone was first introduced with iOS 8 jailbreak, since then it was been upgrading to support all the latest iOS 9-9.3.5 to iOS 10.2.x jailbreak solutions and Cydia tweaks. With the release of a new version of Yalu jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 10.1.1-10.2, Anemone has added support for that in the latest update.
The update to the popular theming engine for jailbroken iOS devices takes the package to the next level of version 2.1.1-8, which is now live on Cydia and installable by anyone looking to theme and better customize their iOS 10.2-tunning jailbroken devices.
For those who don’t know about Anemone and theming, should know that it’s designed to compete with WinterBorad, long been considered as the de-facto installation for those looking to inject a little personality into their liberated iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. WinterBoard is powerful too, but carried out with the lack of updates, since then, Anemone has come long nicely and filled the gaps where WinterBoard was lacking.
About Anemone, offers a modern, more stable, responsive and playable theming experience to users who believed that device personalization is one sort of thing more than just changing a few icons, and is now a preferred choice when it comes to theming for most jailbroken iPhone and ipad users.
It’s something like Nova Launcher or other Launcher apps available for Android devices, Anemone for iOS jailbroken devices is one of the fears with this modern world of jailbreaking. The ever-increasing complexities involved in it, is that developers will simply choose to abandon their packages as it becomes more and more difficult to support newer versions of iOS. The availability of a new jailbreak solution would simply be no good if the packages, extensions, and tweaks that the majority of us rely on and use were left with no compatibility for Apple’s latest version of iOS.
No worry, this isn’t the case with Anemone, while this version is just the beginning of the full iOS 10.2 support which will be rolled out down the road. Developers behind the package has also stipulated that iOS 10 will need to have RocketBootsrap 1.0.5 or higher installed for Anemone to work perfectly.
Also important to note is that Anemone on iOS 10 works with yalu102 jailbroken devices only. It doesn’t officially support devices jailbroken with Mach_Portal+Yalu jailbreak on iOS 10.1.1.
iDevice owners who have already familiar with previous versions of Anemone can still expect to have the same experience, with the similar functionality offered. As a more optimized, reliable, stable alternative to WinterBoard, even this latest version of Anemone supports theming folder icons, applying masks, overlays and shadows to icons, changing interface colors across the platform, and even customizing icon labels and tweaking custom blur settings, among many, many other things.
Anemone2.1.1-8 update with primarily support for iOS 10.2 is available right now via BigBoss repository on Cydia.
