There is a new jailbreak app available in Cydia which allows you to take backups of your iPhone’s springboard theme, which includes: user settings, layout, wallpaper, MobileSubstrate configuration, hidden apps and folders. You can then restore to your favorite saved theme with exact layout and settings in a matter of just seconds.


Easily backup your home screen with BackBoard. Ever wished you could set up a theme and never have to do it again? Well now you can! With BackBoard, you can easily switch between multiple Springboard backups with a tap of your fingertips. Never bother with taking hours to set up the most complex themes. BackBoard creates a backup of all: User settings, home screen layout, MobileSubstrate configuration, hidden apps, webclips, home screen wallpaper and folders.
