iOS 10.3 users were again left in the lurch as Coolstar ignored these versions while updating Anemone. Here’s a new tutorial that will allow you to install themes on your iOS 10.3 device.

Theming is now possible on iOS 10.3-10.3.3
Anemone and WinterBoard are both working on iOS 10.3-10.3.3 but with some limitations. These limitations range from poor compatibility to safe mode and Springboard crashes.
Coolstar recently updated Anemone for iOS 10.3 and 10.3.1 versions. iOS 10.3.2 and 10.3.3 versions are still not compatible with this version. No one is able to ascertain the cause behind this.
WinterBoard is working just fine but it’s not a complete theming replacement for iOS 10.
If you decide to use it, you must update to a compatible build of Anemone once Coolstar releases it.
You can follow this tutorial to apply themes for the time being. But before you move on, check the compatibility carefully in order to avoid unpleasant surprises later.
- Warning – Don’t try this if you are using Meridian jailbreak. Meridian can run Cydia but it doesn’t have a working Substrate. Only g0blin jailbreak comes with a functional version of Cydia Substrate thus far.
You can use it on the following iOS versions –
If you try using it on incompatible versions, your device will go into Safe mode. You can download the new hacked-up version of Anemone for iOS 10.3-10.3.1 below.

i have ios 10.3.2 doul3Helix jail. this anemone work?
It already works for your device so no need to use this.
Is there any way to use Filza to make a theme work? I.e. Copying the .png files from a theme that is installed but won’t work, and using them to replace the current ones (wherever they are in the filesystem directory) ?
No, just use Anemone’s latest version which fixes all issues. Delete the older one then install the new theme.
iPhone 5s iOS 10.3.3, goblin jb. Installed winterboard, with iconbundles, but after I downloaded my favourite themes, I selected them in the winterboard settings, reprung, and it looks exactly the same. I have tried a bunch of different themes, and only one of them changed a few icons, (which was only part of what it was supposed to do.) does anyone know of any pink coloured themes that work on 10.3.3?
Anemone has been updated for iOS 10.3.3, try the latest version.
Where is the repo sources that i can get IconBundles
It’s on default sources.
