How to Fix Winterboard iOS 9 Incompatibility Issues
Now that we can jailbreak iOS 9, it will take a few days until developers update their tweaks to perfectly work with the latest firmware. We are already seeing reports of a number of issues, one of which includes a Winterboard related problem.
Users who are trying to apply a Winterboard theme in IOS 9 jailbroken devices are unable to do so. Winterboard iOS 9 is not working because it is yet to receive the update to make it compatible with the latest firmware. However, you can fix these Winterboard iOS 9 incompatibility issues by following these few steps.
Fix Winterboard iOS 9 incompatibility issues:
