If you have an iOS device with a front facing camera, you can use a new jailbreak tweak on Cydia to “merge” the wallpaper image with live video from the device’s front facing camera. Faded Camera Wallpaper is the name of the tweak, and it’s a free download on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. It’s a tweak that will display a faint video feed from the front facing camera, canvased on top of the Home screen wallpaper.

The tweak is exactly as described, and contains no options or settings, which is unfortunate. It might be an effect that you wouldn’t mind using from time to time, but there’s not even an off switch to disable it. As it stands, it’s a usable tweak, but it’s in desperate need of a preference panel to at least toggle it on or off. Without such an option, you have a surefire battery killer on your hands, as it appears that the camera is in action even when not at the Home screen wallpaper.
