WinterBoard and Substrate Updates
WinterBoard has received an update (WinterBoard 0.9.3904) that claims to fix several bugs.
Its true that many users have been complaining about WinterBoard’s stability for some time and many even chose to remove it completely.
WinterBoard - popular iDevice themer, can by downloaded from Cydia store. To get WinterBoard update, just open Cydia store and head to Changes.

The second update available on Cydia is Substrate.
Even though, many jailbreak users don’t realise it, Substrate is an absolutely essential part of Cydia store.
This platform runs most of your Cydia tweaks and its “Safe Mode” protects your iDevice against tweak crushing. So getting this update is highly recommended.
