Halo: Auntie Dot Theme WIP by Angelman8 Halo: Auntie Dot Theme WIP by Angelman8
===========UPDATE (20.12.2010)===============

- Cut-off Dock bug FIXED (Thanks to excen)! Hooray!

- Alternate Animated Wallpaper (from version 1)

- More Icons on the way, probably after the break

Happy Holidays!



THE RELEASE OF AUNTIE DOT IS OUT! You can get it over there in the Download box >>>>>>

I've tried to work out some of the issues of this theme (as the beta testers are aware) But I figured I might as well release it anyway, and update it as we go.

As far as issues go, the biggest is the dock gets cut off when the theme is initially turned on.
The only way I've found to fix this is to use SBRotator (It's not expensive guys, and this theme looks wicked in landscape).

And the icons are sparse right now, I know, but there shall be more! I'm working on auto-skinning, so hopefully that pans out.

Enjoy and Merry Early-Christmas!

===========UPDATE (5.10.2010)===============
- Updated Video:
- Updated picture
- Better (more intricate/larger) animation
- Square icons
(for now are placeholders, but are retina display quality)

Unfortunately there is still a noticeable effect on battery life, even on iPhone 4, so just a warning for those waiting for a release.

Other than that, any suggestions as to how this theme could be made better are welcome.


I bought Halo Reach on day one, and am only now crawling out of the cave that is my living room to regain what once resembled my social life. I took a look at my iPhone and thought, "Why can't THIS have an A.I.?"
And thus began my quest!

... Anyway, this is what I have so far.

Also, there's a video of the wallpaper in action:


Again, it's still a Work in Progress, so any comments and/or criticisms would be much appreciated.

Heyy, I know it's been a while, but are you still working on this? I just downloaded it and it looks pretty wicked. Would love to see more. Also, a good idea for the background, as I'm sure you have thought of it by now though, would be using different sequences, such as some of the loading screen varieties they have on multiplayer.

iOS 5.1.1 compatible? and can it be run on DreamBoard? WinterBoard is't very compliant with the latest iOS.
liquival Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012
I really like this theme but I was wondering, how can I apply just the animated gif to just my lockscreen?
serial-x Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012
Is this working for iOS 5?
bobofawesome Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2012

PedoFrank Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
Love the theme! Would love it even more if there was a icon-pack including to it! :D

Great job!
ducezarini Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012

krunich Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
Will you again start to develop this awesome-looking theme? I really hope so, especially now that we have iOS5 and Dreamboard! :)
lew0808 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011
when you say Alternate Animated Wallpaper, are we talking like how it flickers on the actual game?
..... now that would be cool
TyroneLove Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2011
Is this available on cydia ?
xTaliban Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
Have you stopped developing this theme? Anyway, is there a chance that you could release an icons pack to use with this theme?
Angelman8 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011
I have for now, as I've been looking into stuff for Dreamboard recently. I'm just hoping iOS 5 will give an easier time to winterboard in terms of file locations and such. I don't know if I will release an icons pack beyond the ones already included in the theme, because most are auto-skinned and really don't look that great. :/ Also, I'm sorry if you've been frustrated by my lack of support for current themes, I hope to change that sometime in the future, but cannot right now.

WANT! too bad i dont have an iphone ):
Bigbrett119 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks a lot man, this works awesome! The animation is somewhat slower on mine then it is yours, but it does not make much of a difference.
SKULLFKR Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2011
How do u download this please help I'm using my iPhone since my computer is at the shop to use the internet
stalker777 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
This is amazing. I'll give it a go and hope to come out with comments and critiques soon enough! :)

imvkool Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011
Why mine still have text under the icon (messaging, calendar, mail, setting)...and my icons are not transparent at all, still have a blur frame around the icon!
elangelraul360 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2011
hi dude great theme but i have a problem with it when i select the theme in winterboard my menu stays in 4x4 and the picture is just 4 icons on the top and the 4 on the docks you may know why is this?
Broken303 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011  Hobbyist
if i get you right its a simple problem. you just need to rearrange the icons. if you move all apps/folders, except 4 (and those on the dock) to the next springboard-pages, you should have a result like this. in this theme there is no setting (i know of) that changes the grid the icon are arranged on.

Holy shhhhh.... this looks awesome! But how can i download this, cuz i have cydia :/
Jeronwong Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011  Student Photographer

Nc man i give you props. but ive been having problems on the animation performance of the wallpaper for the iphone 3g. probs we could change the animation into an mp4 to use winterboard's video wallpaper capabilities. ill look into making an mp4 version of the wallpaper.
powic Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011
that's very nice!!
Broken303 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011  Hobbyist
for those who asked: this should work on every iDevice running Winterboard. iTouch/iPhone 2G, 3G(s), 4G :)
Chs170 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2011
Works on 1G as well, but it's useless as it cannot cope with the animated wallpaper.
mangosango Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
This is incredibly sexy. Wowzies!
UNkq Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
works with 3gs?
Xune531 Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2010
can you apply this to an iTouch?
quicsilver Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2010
