    Thanks for the heads-up. I was thinking of trying it, but not if it constantly breaks springboard.

    The app has a great potential to it, it just needs some, okay a lot, of fixes.

    I tried this app myself, and I must say, that the themes looked fantastic!

    Although as mentioned, I had experienced many SpringBoard crashes.

    I can't wait to see some updates in this app! Definitely one I would go back to if it worked perfectly

    I must admit, the thought of more integrated widgets is interesting. I do have lockinfo, so I wouldn't need too many of them, but the thought is nice.

    I'll keep track of this thread, after Springtomize which looked promising but didn't offer me anything special. So this time thanks for being the guinea pigs

    This app completely locked my phone. I had to restore and rejailbreak for my phone to work again. Took me HOURS!

    BLiNK: are you running Winterboard or any other theming tweaks? Conflicts probably caused your crashing.

    You may have to uninstall them first before trying that new tweak.

    BLiNK: I was lead to believe it was a theming alternative to Winterboard. I may be incorrect in my assumption. However, that being said, you are not the only one who has been having severe crashing issues. Check out the comments at the bottom of this link: http://appadvice.com/appnn/2011/03/j...ve-winterboard

    It was stuck in respring mode. All that was showing was my bootlogo. How do I get out of that mode?

    Dreamboard has been updated now. You can actually launch it without problems.

    However, trying to enter the time and date is a struggle as it the keyboard pop-up displays incorrectly.

    Then after fighting with it, you successfully enter the time, but get left with an annoying square box where the weather widget should display.

    Also, the worst problem I've seen with the tweak/mod is when you exit it. You tap the "Dreamboard" button at the bottom, slide to the iOS screen and tap it, the iPhone looks normal again, then when you try to launch any app the phone freezes. Then after about 30 seconds, it resprings into Safe Mode.

    The Dev needs to pull his socks up and get this fixed. I can't honestly believe that he/she gave it away for free then put a price tag on it.

    Just an opinion and observation regarding DreamBoard that probably will not be a popular one, however, that does not make it inaccurate.

    My iPhone is my fav toy also and I was anxious to give DreamBoard a try. The app would not install and after multiple attempt to contact Wynd, the developer, I could not get a response or support. Consequently I did another jailbreak from 4.2.1.to 4.3.1 and was able to install after a wipe as anticipated. A very inconvenient requirement to install an app. Later I found it crashed due to compatibility issues with at least one other app.

    First opinion, these are not qualities of a Commercial Released app.

    After working with it for couple of days it became crystal clear that unlike WinterBoard, PogoPlank and othersthis did not integrate with the iOS features. While WB does impact performance, DreamBoard noticibly impacts both performance and battery life. Beyond that, not only does it not integrate with the iOS, it in fact, block several key features (namely Dock, Folders and Spotlight). While I am not a developer it appears that DreamBoard is not much more than a Browser with some enumeration functions (and the DB Themes are merely web pages with widgets). Therefore, the springboard is running beneath, simply inaccessible as the browser is claiming the topmost layer above the UI and only relinquishes screen control to apps. Consequently more sophisticated iOS functionality like the Dock, Folders, MultiTasking, Spotlight etc. are blocked. At least BackBoard had the ability to save multiple WB themes and more usefula utility.

    Observation: By definition a Utility adds or enhances functionality.
    DreamBoard does the opposite, it disables functionality and therefore is more of a Toy.
    (a nice toy is still toy in the end).

    I guess if I had known this I would not have been disappointed.

    I guess I'm in the minority here. I'm running 4.2.1 greenpoison and downloaded Dreamboard yesterday and now have 7 themes. While it is a bit of a battery drain, it's not significant. All the themes run really well with no issues. I did have the springboard crash a couple of times, but hit reset and all was well.
