AquaBoard is a new jailbreak tweak currently in development by Elias Limneos. As you’ll see from the video inside, it adds cool water effects to your device’s Lock screen, and Home screen.

Currently, the tweak is set to be compatible with the iPad, iPad 2, The new iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S. I’m pretty sure that at the very least, the iPod touch 4th generation will probably be shown some love as well.

AquaBoard includes several themes. There’s the default, turbulence, followed by Rain Drops, Fingertips, Aqua Sphere, Waves, Shockwave, Unseen Abyss, Abstract Artist, Heavy Taps, and Smudge Brush.

Although it sure seems that they will have an effect, it’s unclear what role, if any, that your fingers will play in the action. It looks like the water ripple effects react to touch, but until we get word from the developer, or play with it ourselves, we can’t be sure.

Along with the ability to select between different themes, you can also designate where you want AquaBoard to work, either the Lock screen, the Home screen, or both.

Settings for frame rate, lock timer, and an overall kill switch, top off the remainder of the settings.

I have to say, that after seeing the preview, I’m pretty excited about AquaBoard. Elias Limneos has a good track record in the jailbreak community when it comes to producing original, quality tweaks. Stay tuned, as we’ll be back with our own video walkthrough as soon as we get our hands on it.

Are you excited to try AquaBoard?

  • It would be nice if the effects could be used as unlock gestures, just like on the S3. They look really awesome.

    • Kok Hean

      Same thought!

  • Seems complicated but I also want to try it

  • Gregoriy Popov

    Something the Galaxy s3 have had a while ago!

    • GL1

      You could get a phone with 1000s of features, doesn’t mean it’s gonna work properly overall.

  • Alex Blaha

    This makes me want to jailbreak again. Oh wait.. I can’t, stupid 4S -.-

    • Y cant you jailbreak the 4S?

      • Alex Blaha

        Because the A5 chip is a dual core chip so it’s a more complicated jailbreak… And it takes forrrrever to be released.

      • Kok Hean

        The jailbreak that I’ve been using for the past four months must be fake then.

      • It’s possible he’s upgraded to iOS 6 at which time no jailbreak is ready for the 4S. Maybe this jailbreak you’ve been using for months will work on it? Please share this magical jailbreak please. Does it come with a free unicorn?

      • Przl

        nice one..

      • you probably just woke up after 5 months. Its sad how coma takes over a person so badly :'(

      • Whether the chip is dual core or not has little effect on the jailbreak. Most jailbreaks aren’t even based on the bottom (which means only software matters)

      • Ashton Pal

        What are you talking about? The iPhone 4S has been jailbroken since December of last year. Go and look at the jailbreak section on idownloadblog and you’ll see that all iOS devices have been jailbroken even iOS 6.

      • Alex Blaha

        Uhm, I’m aware that the 4S was able to jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 but I upgraded to iOS 6 because, well, I really like some of the features like Facebook integration etc… But as I look around the 4S on iOS 6 has no jailbreak at all yet, tethered or untethered, and that is free and not some paid junk. So if you have a link please, oh, please share it with us.

      Either your an idiot or playing dumb.

  • seems like memory hogging…….

  • Awesome, i want it soon!!!

  • ReanimationXP

    Looks amazing. Finally a tweak that is original and isn’t re-hashed 🙂 Nice job Limneos.

    • Kurt

      well, original to iOS. not original though. but this is something i have been wanting to be ported over for a few years! im excited!

  • Wow, I can`t wait to have this tweak on my iPhone.

  • That is the sexiest thing I have ever seen on an iOS device!

  • Kurt

    haptic pro, aquaboard…should we really be trying to imitate all this awesome features from android? HELL YES! why do my fellow iphoners/ipaders hate android so much and try to copy all its features? please answer….

    Disclaimer: i only own an iphone/ipad. never had an android device-nor do i have any experience using one. don’t give me this “fagdroid/fandroid/Go to your android sites”

    • PereZ!

      This is what I don’t understand.

    • GL1

      No phone is perfect. To me the iPhone is the best overall phone. I don’t care about the bigger screen or specs. I care about quality of hardware and software. I tried an android, there are some cools things but it’s not as nearly polished as iOS. So if I can get all these little tweaks on the system I prefer why not? Don’t like android but doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like some of its features on my iPhone.

  • vWallpaper already has this (even though its an ugly app).

    • vwallpaper kills your battery and ram. this doesn’t, as bad

  • Wouldn’t this use up quite a lot of battery?

    • Actually not quiet because it will be ready to recieve which your screen does already , yeah unless you are playing with it all day (no offense)

  • dark

    I can`t wait to have this tweak on my iPhone.


    Does this work with animate all??

  • That looks so cool! Can’t wait to put it on my iPhone 5! Lol.

  • Dlevi309


  • stuff like this should be standard in IOS6 apple needs to hire a “bells and whistles” team to add some fun to IOS

  • niceeee

  • Still not out yet…

  • This thing eats my iPhone memory like ice cream cake
