How to enable Lock screen wallpaper even when your device is charging

ChargingBackground is a tweak that lends the ability to view wallpaper on the Lock screen even while your iOS device is charging. For some reason Apple throws up a black background whenever the device is charging, eliminating your wallpaper. ChargingBackground allows you to reclaim your device’s background while it’s plugged into a power source.

I’m pretty sure this tweak isn’t the first on the block to do this, but sadly, the original tweak’s name escapes me at the moment. Nonetheless, ChargingBackground is free, and it works. Check out our video demonstration inside…


If you’ve been looking for a way to enable wallpaper on your LockScreen, the ChargingWallpaper is up to the task. Take a stroll over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be had for free.

What do you think?

Also, tell me what you think about copy-cat tweaks? That seems to be a Cydia store epidemic as of late. I’m not sure exactly what problems the developers of these tweaks are trying to solve, but I guess one can never have too many options. I’m interested to hear what you think about it in the comments section.
