Note 1: YES this lock screen rotates. In all four directions. (fif7y's rotating lock script)
Note 2: yes it pauses for a half a second. That is to be expected with the 2048x2048 walls, as it's recentering and resizing the widget for optimum viewing pleasure
Note 3: on the iPad version, you must tap the CENTER of your lockscreen to get the cube to come up.
Note 4: this is not a simple lock to SB conversion for iPad. SB rotation script is completely different than lock rotation on an iPad. We have to contend with stock rotation patterns and adjust accordingly.
Note 5: Rotating SB is being worked on. It's in the early stages, and I'm thinking there will not be animations, because the ram consumption would be crazy--trying to run animations in four different aspects, and trying to keep them centered. Also, your icons will cover them anyway

Wonderful work!! You've really stoked my desire for those amazing images on the iPad!
Keep up the great work!!

But here's something I think you'd want to know, MJ. Traditional rain drops are GIGANTIC. Something went wrong in the conversion there. And where's the Humidity #? Is it getting hidden by the long Weather Description?
And then finally you left the info.plist in tact with this Lockscreen that suppresses icon names. Not sure that was your intent with a Lockscreen.

I know you're "on these updates", MJ.. This is so beautiful -- I DID use it as my iPad Lockscreen and I stare at it.. LOL!!!!
Even though I got it to work on SB - the timed walls are locked in Portrait. Is there a 'simple' command to get it to LOCK into Landscape? I don't need rotation - until you all are done. I just want this 'interim' step -- to have the walls/animations locked in "Landscape/Home button to the right" position.
I found the code in Main.js "If Center screen >800...... else.... that looks like rotational code.. but I'm just not good enough with the commands yet to change orientation.
Zero pressure -- only if you have time and is easy mod for me.

iPad SB widgets do NOT rotate unless they are written with a special script (that's what we are working in now) the rotation code and script for LS and SB are completely different. With that said, regardless of the fact that the version you have has rotation code in it for LS, it's completely useless code when you convert the LockBackground.html to Wallpaper.html so, there's no "command" as you put it, that will lock these timed backgrounds in landscape mode for SB use. HOWEVER... We CAN "think outside the box" Send the whole TimedWall folder to your computer. Open each .jpg with the photo editing software of your choice and rotate them 90 degrees. (you'll have to figure out on your own if clockwise or counterclockwise is the "right" way depending on how you wanna hold your iPad) save the file with the same file name and extension and send the WHOLE TimedWall Folder (all at once, or you'll break the widget) back to its correct location in the theme folders' structure.
Then, same as always, winterboard> uncheck, recheck, respring.

I suppose I can also study Eric's iMatte for iPad for SB where he locks that widget to Landscape. That could give me some clues. A number of folks would love your Cube as iWidget too. my guesses that's an easy convert for you.

It definitely is a cool tweak. But my phone doesn't seem to like it. I've tried to install it 6 different times, each time With different mobile substrate add ons, once after a fresh jailbreak. I've tried the stable and unstable versions, the direct deb installation, the cydia repo install,and each time I get either a bootloop, a respring loop, or nothing at all.
My iPod, however installs just fine. So, it's not anything I'm doing wrong, my phone just doesn't like it. But it's not like I can take my phone to the apple geniuses and say, "give me an AppleCare replacement because I want to run the jailbreak tweak 'iWidget' and my phone obviously has some kind of internal hardware conflict." can you imagine the resulting conversation there in the Apple Store? LOL.
With that said, I don't want the cube pulled out of this mod. I want it to stay intact.

Weird about iWidget. You're not running Infiniboard - right. They conflict. I have over 50 tweaks on my iphone and iWidget works beautifully. So you've tried turning off, one by one, each mobile substrate in MORE of SBSettings? And still no clear culprit?
iWidget is the future. But as you imply there - you're niche is more 'full mods' and that's where you can have your mark, MJ. MJSmash is the first of its kind with TimedWalls hourly (something I actually hinted to you - hourly that is-- LOL!).
One other thing. I am only a rank apprentice modder -but you know I have an eye and can tweak enough just to be dangerous. I'd be happy to make the animation adjustment between landscape and portrait in the rotating SB version if you'll allow me. I can get Dacal's animation perfectly aligned to a general positioning that fits all walls. MJSmash won't be near as 'complete' without the option. Your call of course. You know I'll be doing for myself anyway. I understand your not wanting to tie up Alliance time with too much.
P.S. Raindrop size unchanged in the upgrade. Sorry. Still huge.
08-29-2012, 06:17 PM #233
Yeah... I just Rofl'd they are pretty huge... Will try again
It's the CSS
In the CSS/weather/
There's a ton of CSS in there. Any that have a #dropcontainer entry need to be changed
I will change these and include in next update, but until then you can modify them yourself

And, MJ, the info.plist was still in 2.1 too.
