ChargingBackground is a tweak that lends the ability to view wallpaper on the Lock screen even while your iOS device is charging. For some reason Apple throws up a black background whenever the device is charging, eliminating your wallpaper. ChargingBackground allows you to reclaim your device’s background while it’s plugged into a power source.

I’m pretty sure this tweak isn’t the first on the block to do this, but sadly, the original tweak’s name escapes me at the moment. Nonetheless, ChargingBackground is free, and it works. Check out our video demonstration inside…

If you’ve been looking for a way to enable wallpaper on your LockScreen, the ChargingWallpaper is up to the task. Take a stroll over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be had for free.

What do you think?

Also, tell me what you think about copy-cat tweaks? That seems to be a Cydia store epidemic as of late. I’m not sure exactly what problems the developers of these tweaks are trying to solve, but I guess one can never have too many options. I’m interested to hear what you think about it in the comments section.

  • Not exacting the most wanted tweak.

  • Kiel Wallace

    Springtomize 2 handles this nicely as well.

    • Siv

      Right, except this is free…

      • Anonymous

        Right except do you really want to add an extra process that all it does is keep your wp showing while charging or have a full package like springtomize 2 that handles everything. Stop being cheap like your mother.

      • Maybe some people don’t have credit cards.

      • Kiel Wallace

        You can purchase using PayPal.

      • Siv

        Right, except you’re a moron…

        This has nothing to do whether I am cheap. If a free alternative exists, I think I’ll go with that. It’s called common sense buddy.

        A measly 3 bucks is nothing for such an awesome cydia tweak…springtomize 2…just like ifile or intelliscreenX is one of those apps worth paying for

    • Ronald Lockwich

      Where in Springtomize can you make this setting?

  • I’m quite tired of these copy cat tweaks. BigBoss & ModMyI need to start doing actual reviews of tweaks/applications before accepting them.

    • Dan

      are you volunteering? I’m guessing it would almost be a full-time time job filtering through the crap that get uploaded onto the repo

      • And where can I sign up for this job ?

      • Dan

        Good question :p

  • whoo free app. good shit.

  • Your blue wallpaper.. Whats the name?

  • This tweak needs an improvement. When you’re sliding your finger to open a camera the background goes black, even when it’s not charging, it ruined the whole point. The iDB reviewer skipped this part, did you notice?

  • Apurva shah

    it is getting trash when we download it come to exit safe mode
