Two intrepid developers have been working hard to develop Cydia tweaks that makes the Springboard icons appear to float above the background wallpaper. Both tweaks use the device’s hardware to shift the wallpaper background image, creating a 3D effect. 3DBoard by Apocolipse costs $2.99 and is available now through the BigBoss repo. It offers a toggle to adjust the depth setting. DeepEnd, created by Ryan Petrich is free but still in the beta stage. It also has settings for zooming in the background, and changing the pitch and roll. To get DeepEnd, you must add the repo http://rpetri.ch/repo/.
Your wallpaper choice and adjustment of these settings may enhance the effect. Users in our forums currently prefer DeepEnd by a ratio of nearly 4:1.
