Keep Your iPhone’s Lock Screen Wallpaper Visible Even While Charging [Cydia] Share
PDF Print E-mail

iOS blacks out the wallpaper as soon as you put your iPhone or iPad on charging. This is meant to be a feature that lets users distinguish between the charging and normal states at a glance. It might be a bit useful for some users, but most people might argue that the green battery icon is more than enough to alert you that your device is currently being charged. Also, the darkening of the background doesn’t look too good aesthetically, and that is precisely why ChargingBackground has been released in the Cydia store. If you have got this tweak installed on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the lockscreen wallpaper will always remain visible, even when you put the device on charging.

In our experience, ChargingBackground degrades the quality of the battery animation on your lockscreen to some extent, but that happens only on certain wallpapers and themes that clash with the colors in the battery image. Other than that, using the tweak is a treat. You just have to install it from the Cydia store, and it does everything else automatically. To see if ChargingBackground is working its magic, put your jailbroken iDevice on charging and take a look at the lockscreen. You are sure to notice that the black background behind the battery animation has been replaced by your usual lock screen wallpaper.

If you use the tweak wisely, it will certainly make your iPhone look better, although it is worth mentioning that ChargingBackground might not work on your jailbroken iPhone if you are using a Cydia theme on your device. So, if you love your device’s wallpapers enough to keep them even while charging, head to the BigBoss repo and grab ChargingBackground for free. The tweak does not have any configuration steps or customizable options, so don’t try looking for a Settings menu for it.
