How and Where to Install:



  • DreamBoard Themes: go in /private/var/mobile/Library/DreamBoard/


  • WinterBoard Themes: are used for the UI, go in /private/var/stash/Themes/



When your adding themes to the Dreamboard folder, be sure your adding the right folder to it. Look at the Endroid folder for reference.



To Use:

1. Press the dreamboard icon on your homescreen
2. Wait for it to zoom out
3. Slide to the right or left to select themes
4. Tap on the the you would like to install
5. Wait for it to install



Configuring Endroid:

1. To set the weather,

  • Tap the little "i" button in the top right corner of the clock.
  • Enter your zip code and click set.
  • If you are international, your code can be found at weather.com

SSH or use iFile and direct to /Var/Mobile/Library/DreamBoard/Endroid/Current.plist


Find the following in the code:

<dict><key>Actions</key> <array> <string>launch com.wynd.backboard-no-ui</string></array> <key>FrameHeight</key> <integer>38</integer> <key>FrameWidth</key> <integer>150</integer> <key>FrameX</key> <integer>84</integer> <key>FrameY</key> <integer>441</integer> <key>Image</key> <string>/DreamBoard/Endroid/Images/Apps/BackBoard.png</string> <key>ViewType</key> <string>Button</string> </dict>



And Change This:

<key>Actions</key><array> <string>launch com.wynd.dreamboard</string></array>



To This:

<key>Actions</key><array> <string>launch com.apple.mobilephone</string></array>



Then Change This:

<key>Image</key> <string>/DreamBoard/Endroid/Images/Apps/DreamBoard.png</string>



To This:

<key>Image</key> <string>/DreamBoard/Endroid/Images/Apps/Phone.png</string>






How to Hide Unwanted Apps



Heres the needed files.


Hidden Plist or Alternative


Once downloaded SSH or any other method... to the following directory /Var/Mobile/LibraryLibHide

There should be a file named "hidden.plist" rename the file to "hidden.plist-bk" or you can merge it into your original plist.

Then take the downloaded file and paste in this directory respring, save in backboard and your done.

Or you can blend the 2 together...but be sure to backup, just in case.

For example. inside that .plist you will see a bunch of strings.... <string>com.apple.AdSheet</string> Just replace the red part with the

proper Bundle ID. Which can be found in /Applications, then open the app you want to hide and find the Info.plist.


Why wont the HTC keyboard go away after input?


Apparently, there has been a lot of problems with this, and from what I put together, Its only been happening to people with the cracked versions of DreamBoard. I'm all for trying stuff out for free. But when it comes down to it, something like this deserves a donation. If you can swing it, I highly suggest it, plus you will always have the current version :)


How to change Fahrenheit to Celsius


Go into widgets folder
Open functions.js in HTC and LAW
Search for "fetchWeatherData" (no quotes)
2 lines under is a URL, change http://weather.yahoo...ecastrss?u=f&p= to http://weather.yahoo...ecastrss?u=c&p=


Change weather to Canadian Postal Code


Go to http://www.weather.com/ then in the search bar, type in your city.
Hit Find Weather, then in the address bar, you should get something like this: http://www.weather.c...Canada+CAXX0547

You would go in the Endroid theme in DreamBoard, hit the small i, then type in CAXX0547....then Set.



How to change Wallpapers via Settings


For those of you wanting to be able to set the wallpaper via the Settings app, I have a suggestion. First you'll need this:

The converted JPG is found at

/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-[Lock|Home]Background.jpg

Wallpaper JPEGifier is on repo!


Once that is installed, create a symbolic link (iFile can do this) in the /var/mobile/Library/DreamBoard/Endroid/Images/ folder named BG.png and point it to /var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.jpg. Now whenever you change the Homescreen wallpaper in Settings you should just need to respring and your theme will reflect the new wallpaper.

I have personally tested this and it does work, however, I'm pretty sure you have to do this for every DreamBoard theme you have.




How to Change Apps Without Edit Mode



For this to work you need to go to your Current.plist on the theme/add-on your using. Find the BundleID (red) Thats what your going to be editing. You can replace it with another ID. SSH to /Applications, choose your app, open and find the Info.plist. and again look for the BundleID. Then replace in your Current.plist the BundleID of the App you want to replace.


<dict>

<key>BundleID</key>

<string>com.apple.mobilesafari</string>




How to Change Weather Keyboard


Ok now this will work for Endroid, HTC HD2 or any that have the small keyboard for setting the weather by pressing the i

Now inside each DreamBoard folder theres a Widget folder. Inside that, for the themes that are compatible, theres a Weather Setting folder. Open the Widget.html with a text editor, and replace with the red portions below. Also inside that folder, the info.png is a transparent image, you can take the one from Endroid, to make it visible again

#kb{

position:absolute;

top:10000px;

left:7px;

width:150px;

font-family:Trebuchet MS;

font-weight:bold;

font-size:20px;

text-align:center;

-webkit-transform:scale(0.95);

}

#box{

width:140px;

height:25px;

position:absolute;

top:10000px;

left:9px;

font-family:Trebuchet MS;

font-weight:bold;

font-size:20px;

border: 3px black solid;

background-color:white;

}

#set{

position:absolute;

top:-39px;

left:156px;

background:url(set.png);

background-repeat:no-repeat;

width:98px;

height:38px;

padding-top:5px;



How to Add Pages


To add a page, just add 320 to ContentWidth # for every page you want.

First you have to find the code. Depending on the theme it can be hard to find at times. This is what your looking for and this is what you need to change (red).

<key>ClipToBounds</key>

<true/>

<key>ContentHeight</key>

<integer>480</integer>

<key>ContentOffsetX</key>

<integer>320</integer>

<key>ContentOffsetY</key>

<integer>0</integer>

<key>ContentWidth</key>

<integer>960</integer>


How To Add Caching to ANY Theme:

Go to any theme and open the Info.plist

Add this (red) in it save and re-apply the theme...you can also add a description to any theme by adding the the top portion.

<key>Description</key>

<string>YOUR DESCRIPTION</string>

<key>IconCaching</key>

<string>65,85</string>

<key>Plist</key>

<string>YOUR THEME'S PLIST NAME</string>

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Also you will need to add a Cache folder to your theme, see Endroid that came with the new DreamBoard release for an example.

And lastly, double check permissions, along with caching, new permissions must be set. Again in iFile go to Endroid and check the plists for permission changes and apply to your theme.


How To Add Badges:


If you added the beta repo and updated to DreamBoard, the new version now supports badges....and the Endroid theme has badge backgrounds....Copy those 2 files, easy to find in the Images folder, and add them to any Images folder of any theme.

I have dream board installed & the wallpaper jpegifier. I am using iPhone 3GS iOS 6.1.2 with firmware of 06.15.00. Anyway I searched forever trying to find a dream board theme that was for a girl or close to it & I finally select one and it will not let me download. What do I need to do to download honeyphone ux? Please there wasn't much else to choose from!! Thanks!!

You can download the theme from our repo. Add repo.insanelyi.com in Cydia and search for the theme :)

Please note that it has not been updated for 6.1.2, you may run into issues.
