Probably if you have seen HTC’s HERO Android new customized Sense UI, you must have been taken away by the looks. Don’t worry if you have an iPhone instead, we will help you achieve the same on iiPhone. You need a jailbroken iPhone.
A new theme brings Sense to the iPhone, though the skin is, unfortunately, only skin-deep.
The homescreen looks pretty good, with HTC‘s trademark flipping clock (although the skinned clock doesn’t actuall flip), weather, and three customizable apps, with the icon for the sliding app tray just to the right. The dialer is also skinned, with the fat-finger-friendly Android number keys, but that’s mostly it—the apps themselves aren’t skinned, and neither is the list of apps. But it’ll definitely give a fresh coat of paint to the iPhone if you’re tired of the homescreen, as long as you don’t expect the iPhone UI to be as totally changed by Sense as Android’s was.

Change the following highlighted line to the city, country of your choice:
Step 7: Now start the app “iBlank” that we installed in Step 2 and create 12 icons. This app basically creates invisible icons for you which you have to move across the first 3 rows of your main screen so that clock and weather widgets are properly visible.
Step 8: Open Winterboard app and select WeatherWidget and iVillain options in the order as shown below:
You must move WeatherWidget above iVillain if it is not over it. Exit Winterboard and you should now have this amazing looking Sense UI –like theme on your iPhone!
