AquaBoard: Jailbreak Tweak Adds Water Effects to Home Screen And Lock Screen


Elias Limneos – developer of popular jailbreak tweaks such as CallBar has recently released a new jailbreak tweak called AquaBoard – Water Effects.

As the name suggests, the jailbreak tweak adds ripple effects to jailbroken iPhone and iPad’s Home screen and Lock screen.

When you touch the wallpaper, icons, the lock screen, it creates the ripple effect on the SpringBoard. It feels as if your iPhone’s Home screen and Lock screen are covered with water. You can choose from 10 different interestingly named animations such as Turbulence, Aqua Sphere, Waves, Shockwave, Unseen Absyss, Abstract Artist, Heavy Taps, Smudge Brush.

Limneos has recently added a new Raining mode, which creates the ripple effects on the SpringBoard by random rain drops rather than by touch.

You have the ability to disable the animations on your Lock Screen, Home Screen or Battery view mode via the Settings app (Settings -> AquaBoard). You can slow down or increase the speed of the animation using Frames per second in the Settings app.



Checkout the demo of the jailbreak tweak in action on the iPhone below:

AquaBoard is available on Cydia for $2.99. If you like jailbreak tweaks such as Barrel, DisplayCandy that enhance the native visual experience of the iPhone then you’re going to love the jailbreak tweak.

The jailbreak tweak is compatible with iOS 6.
