BigBoss Releases BossPaper v1.0 for iPhone

Posted by · 8034 views
BigBoss has taken BossPaper out of beta status and released v1.0 into the main Cydia repository.

BossPaper is a Wallpapers manager for your desktop that uses very little processor or memory. This is not a replacement for Winterboard. It is a separate enhancement to help fill the gap where BigBoss believes Winterboard leaves off.

Purpose:
You can already theme the wallpaper with Winterboard. So why the need for BossPaper? BossPaper provides a much more performance-friendly method to rotate background pictures of your choosing without Javascript.

Features:
- Rotates images you select. Select multiple folders or just a few images. (Winterboard only shows images theme maker selects).
- Rotation stops when iPhone is locked or an app starts. This is a critical point. Winterboard javascript rotation runs while locked and you cannot see it, or while you're running another app, such as a game, causing overall system lag. BossPaper does not! As soon as you load a game, app, or such the rotation timer is immediately halted and resumed only when you return to the springboard (desktop).
- Rotate with the transition you select from many available to get that cool look you want. Or randomize it!
- Rotate on timer, a duration you select.
- Totally customizable and controllable. You select what gets shown.
- Compatible with winterboard (just make sure you disable any wallpaper themes in winterboard).
- Very low RAM and CPU use. Almost no hit to standard iPhone performance. RAM use is about 1mb to load two pictures. Winterboard javascript rotation is a huge hit on iPhone performance in both CPU, Battery, and RAM (memory). Note: Winterboard, itself is not bad for system performance. Most Winterboard related performance issues comes down to some javascript type theme running.

Actually there was no need for you to restore, you could have fixed it quite easily, at least providing you had OpenSSH installed (ALWAYS A MUST!) the issue is with Apple anyways. There is a built in program called the watchdog, if a program takes to long to load this is what happens. ["Watchdog timeout: distinguished by exception code 0x8badf00d, timeouts occur when an application takes too long to launch or terminate."] View the Technical Note Here: http://developer.apple.com/iphone/library/technotes/tn2008/tn2151.html
