BossPaper (JailBreak App) iPad / iPhone4 FIX / Workaround

Here is a little fix to get BossPaper working on the iPad untill they come up with a new update…this is a must have JB app for you iPhone or iPad

Currently BossPaper only PARTIALLY Works because it runs in the background of the iPad wallpaper.  If you want to view it all you have to do is a create a transparent wallpaper theme and add it to ‘Winterbaord’

Things needed:

  • Jailbroken iPad
  • Winterboard
  • BossPaper
  • OpenSSH (Note: Installing this app will disable your location service after you reboot until then everything will work great…to fix just uninstall and reboot … NOT respring)


  1. Download the following file  Sample Theme file and extract the following files to the /var/stash/themes.xxxxxx folder using OpenSSH
  2. Enable ‘ClearWallpaper’ in ‘Winterboard’
  3. Enable BossPaper and add an image folder

Hope that helps :O)

    Well, it worked. Then of course once I turned my ipad to portait mode I remembered that this is an app for the iphone. By that I mean, that the wallpaper remained in portrait mode, while the icons went to portrait.

    Still, it works, and a good idea but I guess we have to wait for an official ipad bosspaper. Can anyone contact the developer and ask him whats going on? I couldnt find his details anywhere.

    I’m normally not the guy to post comments on people’s sites, but for your article I just had to do it. I have been cruising in your site a lot recently and I am really impressed, I think you might potentially emerge as a main opinions for your market. Not sure what your free time is like in life, but if you began commiting more effort to writing here, I would guess you would start getting a mass of visitors soon. With affiliate stuff, it might emerge as a great reserve income source. Just something to think about. Good luck!
