And you thought Harlem Shake was over.
Yesterday we were playing around with Harlem Shake on our iPhones – making the lockscreen go crazy wasn’t our way of getting back at Apple for the lack of innovation these days but then, I’ll admit it: it was fun watching the lockscreen go totally “Harlem Shake”!
And just as you expected, the Springboard is now doing the Harlem Shake. There were teasers yesterday and thankfully, the Harlem Shake tweak is out on BigBoss, making your springboard go as crazy as possible. Okay, enough of all this. Let’s get straight to the point where you make your springboard icons do the Harlem Shake.
Here’s how to install “Harlem Shake” for your Springboard
- Open Cydia
- Look for Harlem Shake. (You should actually see two of them. But you need the one that has a space between Harlem and Shake). This tweak is available from the BigBoss repo that is installed by default in Cydia.
- Install it.
- Now, open Activator. (if you haven’t got it, download it from Cydia)
- Tap on ‘Home Screen’
- Choose an activator method. I chose ‘Shake’ (it’s Harlem Shake after all!)
- Choose Harlem Shake from the list.
That’s it! All you’ve got to do is shake the iPhone when it’s on the home screen and you’re done! Now sit back and watch as the app icons go crazy and do the Harlem Shake for you – complete with the original music emanating from the speakers.
Read our earlier post on the Harlem Shake of Lockscreen items. That was fun but I assure you, this is funnier and crazier than that!
Note: This Harlem Shake iPhone Springboard edition drains iPhone battery a lot.
