    Default rWallpaper automatic wallpaper changer
    Yes, this is a random wallpaper changer for your phone, just found it and wanted you guys and gals know about it. The author is Skrew the creator of ringtones app. This is the source for it http://i.danstaface.net add it to installer and you can find it. I tried it on 1.1.3 and it works with no problems. It is a first release, I am sure more features will be added.

    Pretty cool, does anyone know if it can be modified to rotate through specified wallpapers? I love the app, but dont care for alot of what it picks.

    Nevermind.....I figured out how.

    This is becoming my favorite app, two things that would enhance this app were if you could change the interval and have a setting to change the wallpaper on lock, unlock only. So everytime you unlock your phone you will be greeted with a new wallpaper.

    the auto lock does not work when Rwallpaper on.
    Is this correct or is just my phone?

    Thank you great app.

    I did notice one thing, when rWallpaper changer is enabled the wigglely icons stop wiggeling after about 5 seconds. If not they wiggle till you hit the home button. I know it is not a problem, I was just curious as to what had caused the change in behaviour.

    New Winterboard theme just released in Cydia, called iHour. This app changes the wallpaper every hour on the hour with its 24 preloaded wallpapers.

    You can SSH in and replace those preloaded 24 wallpapers with your own, simply rename your choice of 24 jpg wallpapers numerically from "1" to "24" and replace the ones already in the directory under "wallpapers."

    You will find that the existing wallpapers are named "0" to "23" not "1" to "24." I think that was an error on the part of the creator since the code calls for "24.jpg" for the 11 PM to 12 AM hour. Furthermore, the code starts at "1.jpg" for the 1 AM to 2 AM hour. You'll see what I mean if you decide to pursue this modification.

    iHour is built pretty simply...in one of the files, you'll find the coding for its actions of changing wallpapers for every hour. It's based something like, "if time = 21 < x < 22, then image=21.jpg;" the numerical values refer to the 24-hour clock designation of hours. So if you want it for every 15 minutes, you may have to rewrite and add a lot more code, specifying which image to use for every 15 minute change, but it's still very simple. So if you have time on your hands, yes you can manually change the code to change the wallpaper more frequently.

    i was trying to do the same thing, but something is haywire cause when I use my code it just goes to a black screen. i just took the time of day and added a bunch of code in between. dunno if thats right, here it is.

    if(x>=9 && x<9.5) {

    document.write(’body{background: white url(19.jpg); color: black}”>’)

    } else

    if(x>=9.5 && x<10) {

    document.write(’body{background: white url(20.jpg); color: black}”>’)

    } else

    if(x>=10 && x<10.5) {

    document.write(’body{background: white url(21.jpg); color: black}”>’)

    } else

    i also tried “9:30″ instead of “9.5″ but that didnt work either. please help!!!

    Do you guys think it's better to use an app like this or to just use an HTML wallpaper in Winterboard that does the changing for you?

    Which would be better on the cpu (and therefore the battery)?
