    the flashing wont work, im pretty sure... the only way it would work is if u had it rotate between the two as separate photos, and that works with the least battery consumption on bosspaper(or so they claim) so try that

    That would be an awful background. It almost gave me a seizure just looking at it.

    Anyways, I don't think you can use a GIF as wallpaper. Though perhaps you can use the two separate images in BossPaper with a transition between them.

    You cannot use .gif images on your iPod. You can use 2 images with WinterBoard's HTML themed wallpapers (or BossPaper or associated acts), which wouldn't take too much memory or battery life from it.

    if you mean will it use alot, then i would say a little more definitley , since html uses a lot more power than a regular static wallpaper(correct?) Also, just play around and see if ur battery sucks all of the sudden... bosspaper supposedly works better, i haven't used it, but its based off of primitive winterboard, so there wont be conflicts if you do download it just to try and see how it works

    EDIT 2: spoonforknife said html doesnt use more power, so i guess you should be all good lol

    and off topic, but, sponnforknife i love your avatar lol

    I said that it would work only with something like WinterBoard's HTML themed wallpapers. WinterBoard does not take up a lot of memory or waste a lot of battery.
