DeepEnd: Jailbreak Tweak Gives 3D-like Effect By Moving iPhone’s Wallpaper Based On Orientation

New Cydia App Store

Ryan Petrich, developer of popular jailbreak apps such as ProSwitcher, Rotation Inhibitor, Clippy etc has recently released another tweak called DeepEnd.

The jailbreak app gives the iPhone homescreen a cool 3D-like effect by moving the iPhone’s wallpaper based on its orientation.

According to the description provided in Cydia:

A simple tweak that shifts the wallpaper based on the device orientation

It looks like Petrich managed the effect using iPhone’s gyroscope, as it changes your iPhone’s screen orientation based on how you hold your iPhone.

You can checkout the video of the app in action to get an idea:

You can download and install the jailbreak tweak for free from the Cydia App Store using these instructions:

  • Launch Cydia on your jailbroken iOS device:
  • Tap on the Manage Tab and then tap on Sources.
  • Tap on the Edit button and then tap add to add the following repo URL to add sources:
  • After it is successfully installed, tap on the Search tab and search for DeepEnd.
  • Tap on DeenEnd to install it on your iPhone.

That’s it, you should see the effect on the homescreen.


Since the tweak depends on the gyroscope, it works only on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G. Apologies for not mentioning it earlier and thanks everyone who pointed it out.
