    Hey all, I just recently updated my to 4.2.1 and jailbroke it with rednow.

    I use vWallpaper on my iPhone 4 and decided to try it on my iPad. Needless to say, the videos weren't the right size, so my friend resized a couple of videos for me and they look AMAZING!

    Here is the video of my iPad:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2fQbfFNYXs

    In order to use this, add the Danstaface Repo to Cydia.

    In Cydia go to Manage > Sources > Edit > Add and add http://deb.danstaface.net/

    Once you do that, install vWallpaper for your OS. To put the videos on your phone, download iPhonebrowser and plug in your iPad.

    Navigate to var/mobile/media/skrew/videos and throw the .mp4 files in there.

    Download videos here: http://bit.ly/vwallpaperipad

    Open up the vWallpaper app and tap Select Video to Play.

    Enjoy!

    That's pretty nice, would you post the video that you (your friend) reformatted.

    It's good; however:

    1) When opening folders it switches to the stationary background, also, this causes folders to open up slower.
    2) Sometimes, when launching a, app, from the springboard, the background flashes black, then the apps lauches.

    Improvements:

    1) If you could tap a place on the background, and an animated happens - like the nexus one live wallpaper.

    Ummm, that's funny, because I haven't noticed a battery life hit.

    noticed or not it has to effect the battery life
    same as it does on an Android phone.

    it's less noticeable on the iPad due to the much
    larger battery.
