CheeseCake is a brand new jailbreak tweak that adds the popular Android L screen fade animation to jailbroken iPhones. The tweak, which is available right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo free of charge, is compatible with all devices running iOS 8.

Developer Noeliel says that he fell in love with the Android L animation on first sight. As such, he took to coding for an hour and after some fine-tuning, came up with CheeseCake.

It’s not something that’s immediately noticeable to the untrained eye, as the effect is extremely subtle. In fact, it’s almost too hard for my eye to notice without slowing it down on video, so that’s what I did in order to showcase it to you. There are no options to configure upon installing CheeseCake, so you’re good to go after downloading it and respringing your device.

Obviously, talking about such a tweak really does it no justice, so be sure to watch our video to see what it looks like in action. What do you think? Do you think the difference is noticeable enough to warrant using CheeseCake?

    Installed this immediately and I absolutely love it!
    I also caught a little error in your post.
    “On first site.” Don’t you mean “At first sight?”

  • Phirak Sok

    Can’t wait for the material design/animation tweaks next 🙂

  • sailesh

    Installed and done respring, nothing happens. Animation is as it is which is before.

    • I had the same issue and came here with hopes that there would be an answer…

  • Matt

    While the Android L animation actually turns black & white first THEN zooms and fades out, this tweak does that on the opposite order.
    Yet, this is an initial 1.0 release – so I guess there’s always room for improvements.

    Anyways, very good job on the dev’s side.

    • Noeliel

      I gotta comment on that though 🙂
      Look even closer, you’ll see that on both Android L and iOS with my new tweak, the zooming and the fade to grayscale start at the same time. Said fade to black/white is finished first as it continues to move back and eventually ends up in full darkness.

        Love your tweak! Do you know if there is anyway to keep fast animations throughout iOS, except the cheesecake animation? I want that baby to take its time

      • Noeliel

        NoSlowAnimations has been fixed in an update that’s already on its way 🙂

      • Kevin Osborne

        I definitely agree that the “greyscale first” is much more noticeable with the Android L version vs. the tweak.

      • Matt

        Well, as far as I can tell, the grayscale effect on Android L kicks in like a half-second earlier.

        Additionally, iOS has its own fade transition on locking, which takes effect even before CheeseCake gets into action – leading to an unaesthetic overall experience.
        If you could find a way to prevent iOS’ default lock fade animation that’d be great.

        Thanks for responding! 🙂

    It’s a meh for me:P

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Cannot discern a noticeable diff. Idk.

  • Fevostone

    No good I love no slow animation more sorry.

  • Wa1t

    im not seeing the big deal about this…..

  • john diaz

    I like it!

  • Gaurav Tamhan

    Where can I get that wallpaper?

  • MereUser

    What’s the point if one can’t even notice the difference

  • JayDee917

    I still like Springtomize’s old TV sleep animation better.

    • I think I will always stick with the “Blur” option. That gets me more “How did your iPhone do that?” from people than almost Barrel

  • My Wasted Fantasy

    Wallpaper? Please.

    • Gaurav Tamhan

      It’ one of the default wallpapers

  • h4nd0fg0d

    *Just updated. Wrks perfectly with no slow anim. Awesome tweak. Kudos, yo!

  • gjm4jc

    What is that background that you are using and do you have your apps themed? Thanks!

  • zalarakh

    after update to v 1.1 it has no effect (i4S ios 8.1 without no slow animation)

  • marquis.

    I can’t get this animation to go away after a update and restore to 8.3. HELP.
