So if the tweak that you love the most is still not available for iOS 9, then it will be available for the firmware soon. And talking about the most-loved packages, WinterBoard has now been updated to work with iOS 9. So no more Winterboard Not Working on iOS 9 issues for jailbreakers .

WinterBoard is one of those staple packages that all the jailbreak users install in their jailbroken iOS devices right after jailbreaking. One of the best things about the package is that it still supports iOS right from iOS 2.0 to iOS 9.0.2. Saurik [ Jay Freeman, Cydia Creator ]has updated WinterBoard to version 0.9.3919, which brings iOS 9 compatibility to the package. However, it is the smallest possible update and does not bring any new features.
For those who thought that the WinterBoard package for iOS 9 will bring additional functionality or power, this news comes as a disappointment. However, we must appreciate the fact that WinterBoard came to iOS 9 at last and runs smoothly on the firmware without any bugs. Even though some users were able to use some workaround fixes to run WinterBoard on iOS 9 before this update arrived, those methods were not as smooth as bug-free as the official update.
- WinterBoard is a Cydia package that allows you to customize almost each and every element of the iOS UI.
- WinterBoard can be used to customize the looks, colors, backgrounds, transparency, sounds, and much more in a jailbroken iOS device.
- A lot of WinterBoard themes, paid and free, are available to download from Cydia. With just some simple taps, the themes can be installed easily, giving your iOS device a major overhaul.
- Version 0.9.3919 [at the time of writing this article] of the WinterBoard package brings support for iOS 9. It resolves the calendar-icons theming and also fixes the bug that caused Spotlight to crash.

You can download the updated package directly from Cydia. Also, you must remember that WinterBoard doesn’t have a separate app icon now that can be launched from the Home screen.
