      Then you don’t seem to have much going on in your life to live for then, huh?

    This week was one of your best weeks. You had great coverage on Jailbreak Tweaks, and Evasi0n information.

    No Wallpapers????

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      Speaking of wallpapers does anyone know where dynamic wallpapers are located in the iOS file system and if it is possible to modify them?

      • Kartik Dhawan

        I’m curious about this aswell

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        I think I found it…


      • Kartik Dhawan

        You did find the right thing!
        Cheers for that, but I tried replacing the stock background with a png wallpaper of the same dimension and it worked!
        But then my device respringed itself and did some weird stuff and now my device isn’t showing the option to set a dynamic wallpaper o.O

        I recommend not to try it yourself.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately I found that out the hard way and had to do some command line magic over ssh to make my device boot 😛

      • Kartik Dhawan

        Sounds creepy o.O

    Somebody tell me if Dreamboard works iOS7 please and thanks

    • on3simpleclick

      I’d imagine Dreamboard is one of those tweaks that relies heavily on mobile substrate & iOS integration, so it most likely, will not work.
      But I may be wrong, has anyone else successfully installed it?

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Correct. It just crashes on startup…

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      The OP is correct Dreamboard crashes on my 5s (as you’d expect) and my iPad 3…

    Thank you everyone in the iDB Team for a great year of news and stories, covering major news to very minor news. You all do a great job. I will continue to read in 2014 (and the years ahead, as well) and I’m sure a lot of other will too!
    Happy Holidays from Australia!

    The covarge of the recent jail break has been great all around between your staff the tweak videos by Jeff have been extremely helpful

  • on3simpleclick

    Completely off topic..
    But if anyone was a fan of Kitcam, and were dissapointed when the developers ceased it’s development when they joined Yahoo, you are in luck. If you search the App Store for an app called KitCamera, it seems that someone has taken it upon themselves (could be some of the developers from Ghostbird Software) to release what appears to be an updated version (or an exact copy) of KitCam. They have updated the GUI, which looks very slick, as well as some extra filters. Personally, I’ve preferred KitCam over every other camera app for a while, and this app popping up on the App Store has been a welcome sight.
    So, If it interest you at all, again, just search for KitCamera. (:

    I was browsing through the ‘Changes’ tab and I saw that there were iOS 6 themes for iOS 7 users. Does that mean Winterboard works now??
