  • Set Panoramic and Per Page Wallpapers with MultiWall


    If you are one to spice up your SpringBoard from time to time, the primary component is always the wallpaper. We can all agree the variety sometimes is a good thing - who wants to use the same, old wallpaper all the time? There's never not a time to change things up. With MultiWall, you can go a step further and add panoramic and per page wallpapers on your device. Read further to get the scoop.

    When you go into the MultiWall tabs in Settings, you are able to change all the values you wish in regards to wallpapers. You have the ability to do the following with MultiWall:

    • Name a theme (the default theme or one you create)
    • Select a theme
    • Define the page width of every page on your SpringBoard (for purposes of sizing your wallpaper)




    What's handy about this tweak is that not only does it provide these functions but it includes a help page to explain how to use it. User guides are always a plus and are extremely helpful to the user. Inside the Help tab at the bottom of the MultiWall tab, you can learn what values set what and how to best configure MultiWall for what you want. Also, it gives you a guide on how to add your own wallpapers (since it only comes with a default wallpaper). The location to add to your custom wallpapers for MultiWall are:

    /User/Library/RiDan/MultiWall/ (found on your iDevice via SSH)

    Note: This folder should contain a text file displaying the valid names for the pages. At the moment, only your default theme may be edited within preferences, installed themes can not be edited.

    If you find this of interest, give it a try - it's free on Cydia now and is compatible on all devices and firmwares (has not been tested on the iOS 5 beta - test at your own risk). Note that there are other applications that do similar functions - this is however a viable option to choose from.

      I use the app 'Perpage HTML' to have panoramic wallpaper. Why should I switch to this app?

      I cannot access the settings page, this is the first and only Cydia package I have installed ATM. Does this package have any dependencies?

      Also paid for barrel way back....grew tired of it....uninstalled. I basically have 1pg for apps/folders, 1pg for widgets, and 1pg for scrolling dock live map addon. Would rather have this tweak on the ipad. So I can unistall parallax which is also paid. Trying to consolidate.

      how does parallax work on the iPad?
      is it buggy at all?

      Is this supported on iPad, 4.3.1?

      First, Cydia didn't show the log messages that it usually shows when installing packages. Then I had to manually respring when the title bar said “Complete” becasue the button wasn't visible.
      After the respring, the wallpapers worked, but when changing the settings, they didn't seem to be saving. Does it need a respring after changing settings? Because I didn't notice a button for it.
