Flashing or jailbreaking in iPhone is truly not recommended since it breaks the limitations of the devices that runs their own operating system. So modifying the overall color scheme for your iPhone is not possible unless you can find an available theme customization app in the App Store. But not by flashing or jailbreaking your device. And for your question if it's possible to flash your iPhone without iTunes, I think the answer depends on your iOS version. This may be possible if you are running iOS 3, but definitely not recommended.

For Apple devices that uses iOS, iTunes is the default media library application from Apple itself. You can sync your music, applications and photos without iTunes by using some alternatives but you cannot perform any flashing as it is strictly prohibited. ITunes supports Mac and Windows PC but not Linux. So, alternatives to iTunes are possible.

You can use the CopyTrans software to manage your iPhone without using iTunes. By using this, you can be able to sync your music, videos, applications and more from your PC to your iPhone. And this program does not require installation. All you need to do is to download it from the CopyTrans official website and start running it in an instant.

Download CopyTrans Manager (iTunes Alternative)

The downside is, you need to downgrade your iPhone's database if you are running firmware 2.x to be able to detect your device by CopyTrans. So if you are not into altering the internal configuration of your iPhone, then this software is not for you. Anyway, by downgrading the firmware on your iPhone, you won't be able to use latest applications from Apple that requires firmwares 2.2 or higher.

Hello,

I think this is an illegal thing to do, i would not recommend it to you at all as it can be a punishable offense. But yeah you can transfer files or sync with the use of flash drive. Its some sort of possible, but not recommended. I think doing this is an illegal activity, you should always use a software or iTUNES for synchronizing your phone. 

Hope this helps
