How To Get Deadpool-Themed Emoji On Your iPhone

The official Deadpool emoji app for iOS and Android was released as part of the “12 Days of Deadpool” promotional montage leading up to the release of the movie, and though a fun keyboard replacement for instant messaging, its pseudo-emoticons might not cut it for every user. The app lets users share images containing emoticons and catch-phrases themed after the film, much like the Fallout Chat app we covered earlier, and doesn’t actually skin emoji across the system, though that’s due to the restrictions in place by both iOS and Android.

Good news is, if you’re in possession of an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch jailbroken on iOS 9, there is a solution that can get you past said restrictions, allowing you to theme the default emoji set on your device. Once that is done, all you need is a Deadpool emoji theme that someone in the jailbreak theming community has been kind enough to put together, apparently, using the emoticons from the aforementioned app. In what follows, we explain how to set up the whole thing in a few easy steps.


Note: Before we begin, note that this is a theme for the emoji on your device. You won’t be able to send these emoji to others over messaging or social media, but any emoji sent to you, as well as those in the iOS Emoji keyboard itself, will appear themed.

1. Launch Cydia, search for and install the free BytaFont 3 app.


2. Tap Return to Cydia, and install the free Emoji DeadPool Theme (D) package the same way.

3. Once that is done, return to the Home screen and launch the newly installed BytaFont 3 app.

4. Switch to the Swap Mode tab and select the Emoji option.

5. Select the EmOji_DeadPool theme inside and hit Yes to confirm the respring.

That’s it! After your device resprings, you should see an impressive quantity of emoji replaced with Deadpool themed variants, especially those under the People section. We tested the package out on a jailbroken iPhone 6, and the little round Deadpools seemed to appear just fine across a host of apps and in the Emoji keyboard itself.
