    I found under settings/general/accessibility/ black on white

    makes the background behind the icons white and changes all the other menus and pictures to give it the negative look like a camera would give you.

    What is the point of this?

    It would be nice to change the background that the icons sit on top of without Jailbreaking it, I am tired of the Black background and boring icons, I wish there were a package of icons that you could use, someone should make an icon pack and backgrounds so you can change everything....that would be useful and cool:D

    Isn't it...white on black?

    I like it this way, gives it an erie look.


    Plus, the battery is purple. I don't know why I like it, I just do.

    Ctrl + Alt (Option) + Cmd (Apple) + 8 on your Mac does essentially the same thing. Improves battery life a bit too :)

    You're welcome. A friend of mine showed it to me a while back and it's kind of fun to use while typing notes in class to distract others around you.

    Another cool trick is to right click on a dock icon, and then leave that menu up, then hold shift and tap the button for expose about 10 or so times).
    Pretty fun to do on a friends computer while theyre away :D :D
