If you have an iPhone 5 and would like to stand out from the crowd then you will want to try this Black Orb theme that will dramatically change to look of your iPhone.
Note: This may or may not work on other devices, we have only tested it on the iPhone 5. You are more than welcome to try it on other devices, but if it doesn’t look correct then chances are it is not compatible. If this is the case, simply follow our instructions for uninstalling the theme and you can be on your way.
The theme uses web clips and an easy to install profile to alter the appearance of your iPhone and its developer was very skilled at pulling the theme off. Right now it is the only one of its kind.
Download The Black Orbs Theme
You will need to download a black wallpaper (any black wallpaper will do)
The only downfall to this theme is that as it uses webclips to alter the appearance of your iPhone, not all the icons could be themed properly. Notably, things like the stock phone app are no where to be found due to this. There will also be web clips for apps that you may not have installed present. If you try to open a web clip for an app that isn’t installed on your device, then no harm is done, of course. The icon will simply open to a blank white page until you install the app in question.
Here is a list of the currently themed apps:
- Google Voice
- Apple Maps
- Google Maps
- App Store
- Find My Friends
- Google Drive
- Mobile Mouse
- Google Earth
To apply this black orb theme to your iPhone 5, access this page on your iPhone and download the theme using the download link below. Upon downloading the attachment a new screen will appear, tap the Install button.
You will now see your home screen has been radically altered. Chances are you will get tired of this theme pretty quickly due to the lack of support for all of the stock apps and as such you can remove the theme by launching the Settings app, going into the General tab, tapping the profile and then the Uninstall button.
Once the profile has been uninstalled simply reboot your device and it will return to normal.
