‘iStartupMovie’ Adds a Customizable Boot Up Movie to Your iPhone

Not too long ago we posted an article and video about iStartupSound, a jailbreak tweak that allowed you to add custom boot up sounds to your iPhone upon restart or respring.

Now, the jailbreak community has taken the next obvious step by allowing full startup movies to accompany your restarts and resprings.

Logically, the tweak is called iStartupMovie, and it works somewhat similar to its audio only predecessor. Check after the break for an in-depth video walkthrough of iStartupMovie in action…


Once you install iStartupMovie, a new app will be present on your Home screen. With this app, you’re able to enable or disable the movies that it finds in the required iStartupMovie directory.

After the movie is enabled, a simple respiring will showcase your video of choice. There’s even a couple of sample movies thrown in for those of you who want to test it out immediately.

The only downside I see with this tweak is that it adds more time to your respiring or reboot time. If the additional wait time isn’t a big deal for you, you’ll no doubt love iStartupMovie. For me though, the additional boot up time was a deal breaker.
