WinterBoard Themes Bring iOS 7-style Dynamic Wallpapers with Parallax effect to iPhone Lock screen

One of the cool things about iOS 7 is the dynamic wallpapers with the parallax effect on the Home and Lock screen.  Well, if you’re jailbroken you don’t have to wait any longer.

2 themes have just been released on Cydia that allow you to do just that (at least on the Lock screen).  

The two themes that I’ll be covering are iOS7 Accelerometer Slideshow Lockscreens and iOS7 Bubble Weather Ani Lockscreen Pack (names are quite a mouthful), both of which are developed by Simon.

First, let’s talk about iOS7 Accelerometer Slideshow Lockscreens.  This theme brings you 5 different packs of 20 different wallpapers, so if you do the math, it has 100 wallpapers included.  Each pack of 20 wallpapers have a specific theme which are Cityscapes, Close up, Nature, Night Sky, and 3D Abstract. All 5 packs bring you great looking wallpapers that have that parallax effect like in iOS 7.  The theme will automatically rotate through the 20 Wallpapers in each pack like a slideshow, which is quite a neat feature. Before you choose a theme in WinterBoard (WinterBoard -> Select Themes) and respring your device, you may want to download a tweak that will hide your native Lock screen clock because this theme includes an iOS 7 style clock as well.  You can hide your clock with Lock screen Clock Hide (free) or with Springtomize ($2.99).  Once the clock is hidden you can enjoy the theme to it’s full potential.  If you tap on the Lock screen it also displays weather information.  Your local weather can be changed by inputting your weather code using iFile.


Check out the video walkthrough below:

Next up is iOS7 Bubble Ani Lockscreen Pack.  This theme allows you to set iOS 7-style dynamic bubble wallpaper with parallax in 14 different colors. It also has the themed clock so you will need to use either Springtomize or Lock screen Clock Hide to hide the native clock.  When using this theme you’ll notice that even if your device isn’t moving, the bubbles in the background continue to move, which makes it look really nice.  With the various different colors to choose from, you’re sure to find something that you like and to match your theme of your device.  Again, this tweak has the weather widget if you tap on the lock screen, which can be customized to your local weather using iFile.

You can download both of these tweaks from the modmyi repo for $1.29 each.

Please note as some of you have pointed out, it may be a little laggy on older iPhones.

    Both tweak seems slow to respond…

    • iPhoneHacks

      Which device did you try it on?

      • Jimothy

        I tried it on iPhone 4 and 4S. It was slow on both, but obviously slower on the 4. When I get home, I’ll test on 3GS.

        • iPhoneHacks

          Yeah, it is a little laggy on older iPhones.

          • Simon Franklin

            Yeah, it is not bad on a 4S but pretty laggy on a 4, even if hardware acceleration is enabled. Probably why Apple left out these kind of effects on the 4 on iOS7 itself. I do have another pack coming out soon that uses the gyroscope instead of accelerometer and the performance using that seems to be a bit better on a iPhone 4.

  • Mathieu

    Very slow respond on a iPhone4… I had to removed it.. :-(

    • iPhoneHacks

      Yeah, it’s laggy on older iPhones. The developer will hopefully improve the performance in future updates.

    The slideshow feature is a cool improvisation over what’s available in iOS 7.

  • DiamondDNice

    I really hope there is some sort of skin that will make ios 7 less jarringly flat and less bright. I’d even take an ios 6 theme. Hope that’s a option as i’m not very fond of ios 7. I tried the beta for a week. I like some features but disliked the look of it. Music player was ruined. Not the iRadio but the music player.
