Get Animated Wallpapers On iOS 5 With vWallpaper 2 Jailbreak Tweak – Download Now

by Ahmed Omar on December 30, 2011

vWallpaper 2 has been recently update with iOS 5 support to bring animated video wallpapers on the new software. The first vWallpaper version existed on iPhone 2.0 firmware but hasn’t been updated for newer iOS version until today. The nice thing about vWallpaper 2 is that it’s free!

Without this new tweak, you can’t get an animated wallpaper on your homescreen. Only static images set as a wallpaper. With vWallpaper 2, you can add videos, cool 3D effects, HTML widgets and more.

In order to get the tweak (use this guide posted here to jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered), you have to add its Cydia repository by navigating to the Manage, Sources, Edit, Add and write down this repo:

You may need a to be on Wi-Fi since the tweak weighs 31.3MB.

Don’t forget to watch the video by our friend Adam from Youtube:

    Beware. Springboard crashes on every turn. Mobile substrate protection does kick in, though. Removed it only after 5 mins of frustrating use.

  • SauRon

    everything works perfectly
    but i wonder , when can we download more widgets ( the HTC widgets are all awesome ) , and more Ripple effects ?
    these two are the most awesome things in this tweak

    thank you again , without you guys the iphone wouldn’t be that awesome

    if you don’t know, it does kill your battery and this kind of things its usually ALOT of battery! but it is a WONDERFUL app i am currently using it and i love it , it makes my everyday boring iPod look more stylictic.

  • lb

    i dont know what yall are taliking about, ive been using this for about 2 days and i havent seen it effect my battery life in a big way, and it works on ios 5.0.1 cuz thats what im currently using. and i love the magic fingers effect.

  • GeoHot

  • Slowpuppy

    yea and you have no ram for apps.

  • Codymckinney

    I have the same problem… proximity sensor does turn off when phone is placed up to the ear…. but does not turn the screen back on after you take it away…. :( Looking for a fix… Reply here if you found a fix…

  • Sean carlo

    Same with me..i installed it but so many times my iphone froze and even if u enter dfu mode not working till i connect it to itunes..

  • Chenzo101

    The original Vwallpaper for Iphone 4g is perfect, im not running IOS 5 because I dont care about the few crappy little features it adds. I can do much more with my Jailbroke 4G. Vwallpaper on it never freezes. I love this phone… F the Haters!

  • Triplelast

    True and some of this people posting up comments stating that it doesn’t work.. You should at least describe what device you have and what firmware it is on.. Because on the latest update it should work. Also be aware of other background options you might have on that will interfere. e.g. Winter board options.

  • Kerefeke

    Found the fix yet? If you did I would much apreciate it too. Same problem…

  • Marshall Berman

    no fucking shit its gonna waste batteries you retards

  • Jmr4791

    Looking for help. If I have vwallpaper2 and winterboard both installed my phone4 just keeps crashing. I’m using OS5. Any advice?

  • Koykitz

    Does this work on iPad 2nd gen?

  • Moon

    Yep, it causes the phone to go into safe mode. Remove it and everything goes back to normal. this needs to be fixed.

  • Cobaltthegreat

    5.0.1 iphone 4s… Works fine for me.

  • Prasad Rane

    Just go to Manage Current Theme and deactivate video option. It will work gr8.

  • Tragedy_of_chaos
