If you want to be different than the rest of the iPhone pack you could install Summerboard and one of the themes that make your iPhone stick out from the crowd. It is possible to download themes for Summerboard or even create one yourself, the article will concentrate on premade themes that can be downloaded.
Users have to use different version of Summerboard to install the application depending on their firmware. An alpha version for firmware 1.1.1 exists, users with an older version have to use the Installer.app. Detailed explanations are available on the homepage mentioned above.
Many Summerboard themes have been posted on the installer apps website. I have selected three nice looking themes from the list of available themes. Just explore the website to take a look at all available Summerboard iPhone themes.
Click on this source link to find out how to add the themes to your Iphone.
Update: Please note that the website is no longer available, which also means that you can't download and install the themes anymore that were offered on it for download. You may instead use a web service such as itheme sky which makes available a large amount of themes for Apple's iPhone mobile phone and tablet device family iPad.
Note that the site features free and paid themes, and that it is recommended to download the themes directly using your iPhone or iPad and not your desktop computer. To install the themes automatically, you need the iThemes Sky app which is available free of charge.
If you prefer to install the themes manually, you need to download them to your PC or Mac instead, connect your iOS device to the computer and copy the theme folder to the /var/mobile/Library/MyFonts/ directory.Advertisement
