    Greetings !

    I spent some time reading on this forum and I just registered as I will have some questions to ask at first (and possibly contribute in the future...!). I tried to search this forum for an answer to this first question, but I couldn't find anything (however, pls bear on me, this forum is HUGE !)


    Is it possible to set up an animated graphical/visualization application, such as Gravilocity or iBeams as the background for the lock screen or the home screen (springboard) on an iPhone 4 ?

    If it is, I would appreciate some guidance on how to do...
    (I am currently on iOS 4.1)

    Thanks for reading ! :)

    I don't think it can be done. If it could, it'd drain the battery very quickly.

    Not as a dynamic (animated) background. Won't work on iPhones. You could, however, do a screen shot of an effect and send it to your phone as a static background. (I know, not what you were looking for).
    That's as close as you can get.

    Try searching google for "vWallpaper." However, I've never personally tried it.

    Only way you can get an animated wallpaper on your phone is to JB it and install vWallpaper.

    Many thanks to all for your answers !

    I will look into this "vWallpaper" and try to understand how to make animated backgrounds with it.
