    Hey guys, i was thinking, wouldn't be awesome if someone very smart could make a tweak, like a .dylib or a winterboard theme(like liveclock), of animate springboard icons, including some FX effects like TWISTING, SWIRLING, BOUNCING, FLASHING, PIXELATING, ...
    Would be very awesome, like making a live springboard:

    Something Like That:

    I would say that is a dumb idea, just because it will more or less cause the Springboard to crash because lack of memory. I see where you are coming from though it just won't ever become true.

    This WOULD be a great idea. Only if it was possible.

    It'd also kill the battery, make you're battery life like 1 min.

    Actually, that would be annoying as hell.

    The image posted is proof of how useless and annoying it would be.

    I would probably get a seizure from just looking at this.

    how about just using vwallpaer or winterboard and clear icons for you apps?

    Make a flash like the one above (but way better) of a springbaord with animated icons and convert it to .mov. Then use winterboard or vwallpaper to play it and have clear icons.

    It would give the illusion of animated icon.
