Already, a selection of wallpapers are available in the iOS, and users have the option of adding more via their Photos app to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. But there’s one aspect of iOS wallpapers some iDevice owners might not be too pleased about: unlike (some) Android smartphones, on iOS-powered mobile devices wallpapers are sadly not scrollable. That is, until now.
Thanks to a new jailbreak tweak called “WS Wallpaper,” jailbreakers can easily add scrollable wallpapers to their iPhone. Once downloaded and installed, the free jailbreak package adds an icon to the Home screen, within which users can construct a scrollable wallpaper out of images already saved to the handset. After processing the file, WS Wallpaper will add the all new, scrollable wallpaper to the jailbroken iPhone, and upon returning to the Home screen jailbreakers will see that the wallpaper they’ve installed can be scrolled through when users browse through their apps.
It’s a clever, handy tweak and something jailbreakers will certainly appreciate. For more information, head on over to the Cydia Store and download WS Wallpaper for free, or check out Dom’s video walkthrough, which we’ve embedded below.
