We try to feature a complete theme every week, and while this week is no different this weeks theme is definitely in the top 5.

Prestige HD for the iPhone 5 is one of the most complete iPhone themes to date. Developed and designed by Gabriel Faulcon, better known by his twitter handle @FIF7Y. Faulcon is a designer known in the jailbreak scene for his theme Boss, and ThemeitApp, an alternative way to buy your iOS Themes.

Prestige HD has been around for awhile, however just recently fixed to work with the exanded dimensions of the iPhone 5. Faulcon leaves no corner of the iPhone 5 unturned. Completely theming the entire iOS experience, painstakingly taking the time to customize even the smallest details. I have created this video as a sort of commercial/demo of the theme.

After the video there is some setup instructions for those of you on an iPhone 5

As you can tell from the video above, the theme is amazingly beautiful, yet it doesn’t force you, the user to figure out what icon is what. It still keeps with the overall look and feel of the iOS which is a huge plus. Many themes can overwhelm the user.

Here is a gallery of some of the screenshots for those of you who don’t want to watch the video, although I’d love you to watch it and give me feedback on making better videos.

Setting up weather is simple thanks to Faulcon putting the url you need in the file you need to set it up.

First navigate to the weather option you want to configure. There are a few options depending on your iDevice, IE ip5 which means iPhone 5.

The path to Prestige is var/stash/themes/s

Once you have found the weather option you wish to change simply tap on it and click setup.js or config.js depending on the file.

Then navigate until you see the url indicated in the photo below. Copy it and paste it in safari. Or you could just do it here in your browser.

Prestige HD 3D Photo Widget Configuration

Again, Faulcon made this a sinch, even providing you your own template to create the photos. It’s painless if you have photoshop. Simply navigate to the template which is in the images folder for that widget. The navigation looks like this

var/stash/themes/prestige.i5.LS/Facet.hdc.theme you’ll see whats shown in the photo below.

Open it up and save out your photos as a png.

If you don’t have photoshop, you’ll just need to save the photos out as a .png and make sure the photos are 400×400. Also they will need to be saved out as 1.png, 2.png, 3.png and 4.png.

Now you can set up your own rotating images.

Overall this theme is amazing, the price is a bit expensive, definitely one of the more expensive themes out there, but in my opinion it is totally worth checking out. Need some more convincing, check out the video.
