Jailbreak Tweak : Metroon Theme for DreamBoard
If you’re eagerly awaiting Microsoft’s Windows 8 Metro interface, due in late October, then you might be interested in obtaining it a little earlier for an iPhone or iPod Touch. Metroon, a Dreamboard theme for jailbroken iOS devices, does just that — providing a near-perfect replica of Microsoft’s Metro interface.
The theme includes a Windows Phone-like lock screen complete with notifications, volume controls, notification alerts, and the swipe up to unlock feature; a home screen complete with live tiles for things like Mail and the Music app; plus a Charms bar that appears when you swipe from the right-hand side of the display, which provides access to the theme’s settings, allows you to switch between the Metroon theme and regular iOS, and more. Once Metroon is activated it works in a similar way to Microsoft’s Windows 8 Start Screen, providing a launcher for apps with live tiles providing information on apps at a glance. All iOS apps can be pinned to the Metroon Start Screen. A desktop tile brings you to the familiar iOS home screen and the Charms bar is once again accessible to bring you back into the Metro interface, almost identical to Windows 8′s desktop mode.
