    Not sure if anyone has had a chance to play around with this tweak... if not you should give vWallpaper2 for ios4/arm7 beta a try.
    Can be found by adding this repo:
    http://i.danstaface.net/deb/
    it's only in beta stage now but does look promising...

    Basically it's live wallpapers 2.0. It has particle effects, magic fingers, icon effects, interactive widgets, "skyrockets", 3D rotating texts, and also allows you to show video on lockscreen. It also will not conflict with the barrel tweak as perpagehtml+ did. You also don't need to respring your device everytime you add/remove a widget.

    By default it looks for Widget.html, widget has to be captialized but you can also direct it to look specifically for the correct html file as well. For the ps3 & 360 widgets just replace my name with yours.

    Also add this repo for more vWallies just be sure they say iPad in title:
    PizentuDeWind's Repository - MyRepoSpace.com

    Here is a lil example of vwallpaper2 using the webview/widget aspect of vwall2.
    Episode2



    And you can also use vwall2 to change the wallpaper on each page ;)
    And if anyone runs across any more widgets please share here. Or know anything of HTML coding could write a few. ;)
    After unzipping, Place the widget folder in:
    Var/mobile/media/vwallpaper2/webviews

    Also FYI ~ the effects aspect(video, magic fingers, skyrockets, icon effects) will not be visible if you are also using the parallax tweak. Only the webview/widgets will work with parallax. You will have to go into sbsettings>mobile substrate add ons and turn off parallax if you want the effects to show up.

    Ohhhh....in case you might of missed it.....here is Ep1:

    A preview of the particle editor from the developer----which basically you can choose any png file of your choosing.

    I love bubble's....;)

    It shows on iPhone but looks much better on iPad.....

    Question how do you get the widgets like calculator sand weather not to overlay each other on the screen. I can't figure this out?
    Thanks Jimmy

    After you added the local widget and it showed up in the list. Tap on widget name and scroll down to "Top" & "Left" and enter disired location on the screen.

    1. Simplescreen - simple date/time widget
    2. Twitter feed - don't have a twitter account so I can't test....

    Twitter widget setup:
    1. Sign into twitter
    2. Create a list of everyone you want to show up on the twitter feed.
    3. Open the Widget.html file with the text editor of your choice.
    4. Replace TWITTER_USER_NAME with your twitter user name
    5. Replace TWITTER_LIST_NAME with your twitter list name.
    6. Replace TWITTER_FEED_TITLE and TWITTER_SUBJECT_TITLE to the names of your liking.

    optional:

    by changing the color key (obtainable through google, gimp, or photoshop) you can customize the color combinations.
    I did not create these but props to who did....
