Wallmart Wallpaper

Wallmart is a newly released jailbreak tweak that allows you to cycle through your favorite wallpaper on iOS 8. After installing the tweak, which is downloadable free of charge via Cydia’s BigBoss repo, you can set it up to automatically cycle through each wallpaper after a specific interval of time, or cycle with every unlock.

Once you install Wallmart, go to the tweak’s preferences in the stock Settings app. Once there, you’ll see two basic sections, a Wallmart section, and an Interwall section. The Interwall section allows you to establish a specific time interval for automatically rotating wallpaper. If you decide to use the Interwall mode, I recommend using a high number, since each rotation affects system performance significantly.

The main Wallmart mode will automatically cycle your wallpaper after each unlock. You can establish a specific album to pull your photos from, which allows you greater control over which photos are used. Since you never know what photos could appear from your general Camera Roll, I definitely recommend using the album feature.

There are other options contained in the tweak’s preferences, self explanatory features like Lock screen and Home screen application, random mode, perspective zoom, and blur settings. Like the Interwall mode, the blur settings can have an impact on system performance if used as well.

In my time with the tweak I find that Wallmart works as advertised. But just be aware of the potential negative impact that this tweak can have on system resources, and perhaps battery life as well. If you can live with these issues, then I find that the core functionality is more than satisfactory.

Wallmart is available free of charge on the BigBoss repo right now. What do you think about the tweak?

 

  • Fancy name. I used to have to program some html file in order to get this in Winterboard, good to see there’s a tweak to simplify the process…

    I download the movies Taken 3, Night At The Museum 2, Unbroken, American Sniper, Into the Woods, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Big Eyes, The Imitation Game Exodus: Gods and Kings and a hd quality of Fury, Gone Girl, John Wick, The Equalizer, Big Hero 6 and The Interview on my iPhone 6 Plus and my PC from the “bigU Movies” app I got from Cydia. I think either xsellize repo, insanelyi repo, Appcake or Zeusmos has the bigU Movies app..

    Great tweak ! But doesn’t let you choose the stock Wallpapers folder 🙁

    Let’s hope that the developer adds this feature.

      It is simple, Goolge them, for example, write this in Google’s search bar: “iOS 8 stock wallpapers” then download them, then make an album and put them in it, then finaly, select that album in Wallmart’s settings!! You’re done!!.

      • Yash Gorana

        Thanks for your suggestion. Simpler method is to save stock wallpapers to camera roll from /var/stash/______/Wallpaper/iPhone/ using Filza/iFile.

        No computer required ✌️

        exactly

      • chex_mix

        or even simpler is the developer of this tweak just updates the tweak to allow us to choose stock wallpaper folder and then we don’t have to do anything!

    There’s a great delay when trying to unlock device with Wallmart enabled with either Interval is on or off.

    Seems to remove weather wallpaper overlay on weatherboard or lockinfo when wallpaper cycles.

  • Steven Code

    Literally the most confusing name ever lol

  • Grakiao

    Is there a tweak that lets you have 2 wallpapers? One for daytime and one for nighttime?

    I use WallCycler from Ryan Petrich’s repo. It doesn’t have some of the bells and whistles in this one, but works perfectly for me.
