Make iPhone’s iOS Look Like Mac OS X Lion
We’ve shown you how to make Mac OS X look like iOS, but what about going the other way? If using a jailbreak doesn’t freak you out, this winterboard theme makes an iPhone look and behave freakishly similar to Mac OS X Lion and includes a variety of features that are borrowed from OS X 10.7, including:
- OS X Lion style login screen
- Mac OS X style Dock
- Usable Finder menu bars
- Draggable Finder windows that contain your apps and data
- LaunchPad shows all your apps
- Stacks for quick app launching from the Dock
- Mission Control gives quick access to social apps and Dashboard widgets
- Safari is reskinned to look like OS X
Called “OS X Lion Ultimatum”, it may be one of the most advanced iOS themes that’s available out there. It’s currently in beta but will cost $3.50 and require Dreamboard and a jailbreak.
Update: Here’s how to install OS X Ultimatum on the iPhone:
Tap Manage Sources
Tap Edit, then Add, then add source fnetdesigns.com/cydia/repo
Go to the Changes section and install Theme Outlet
Close Cydia, go to your home screen, and open Theme Outlet
Browse for OS X Ultimatum and download it from there
Open up Dreamboard, browse for the OS X Lion Ultimatum theme, and install it.
You can follow development over at MyMyi Forums but it should be released soon.
Screenshots don’t do it as much justice, be sure to watch the two videos embedded below to get a full grasp on how convincing the theme is.
The second video comes from Jeff at iDownloadblob, where I first heard about this theme:
Hopefully the themes Mission Control function will also turn into an application switcher, making it even more authentic, but it’s still very impressive as is. No wonder Apple is busy hiring people out of the jailbreak scene!
