AnimateLockscreen Breathes New Life Into Your iOS Device’s Boring Lock Screen [Jailbreak]

Spice up your lock screen with animated boot logos, thanks to AnimateLockscreen.

Since iOS 5 was introduced last summer, our lock screens finally do something worthwhile, and that is present all of our unread notifications in one place, so that we can see what we’ve missed at a glance. However, when you have no outstanding notifications, the lock screen is stall a rather boring place.

AnimateLockscreen is a new jailbreak tweak that aims to change that, by breathing new life into your lock screen with gorgeous animated wallpapers.

In actual fact, the tweak uses the animated boot logos that are available within Cydia, so there’s already a large library to choose from. Simply install the $1 tweak, along with the boot logos you’d like to use, and activate it within your Settings app. Your boring lock screen will then be transformed into something interesting.

You can download AnimateLockscreen now via the BigBoss repo within Cydia.

    Meh.  Do we really need this?  Who stares at their lock screen all day?  Really…..  I think a name change is in order…  Cult of Jailbreak.

    The “free your phone” nonsense is the most hilarious part of it. You do NOTHING to free it.
