What is AquaBoard XS?

AquaBoard XS is a jailbreak tweak that brings the stunning 3D OpenGL-based water effects to your SpringBoard. With this tweak, you can enjoy cool and interactive water effects on your Lock Screen and Home Screen by simply touching anywhere on the screen. AquaBoard XS supports rootful and rootless jailbreaks such as Fugu15 Max or Dopamine.

Once you've installed AquaBoard XS tweak for iOS 11 – iOS 16, a dedicated preference pane will be added to the Settings app, making it easy to customize and configure the tweak. The preference pane offers a variety of options that allow you to enable the water animation on both your Home and Lock Screen, and personalize the settings according to your preferences.

AquaBoard XS tweak automatically overlays your wallpaper on the Home Screen or Lock Screen and adds interactive water effects. It uses OpenGL ES 2.0 to render water ripples on your screen, which gives a realistic and mesmerizing effect. The water animation looks amazing.

Additionally, AquaBoard XS tweak offers ten different ripple effect themes, which vary in size and depth, and several customization options, giving you the freedom to personalize the water effects according to your preferences. You can also set FPS for each animation.

It offers a range of ten different water ripple themes to choose from, each with its own style. The default theme is Turbulence, but you can easily switch to any of the available themes through the preference pane. On the screenshot below you have a brief overview of themes names.

One of the most significant advantages of AquaBoard XS tweak for iOS 11 up to iOS 16 is its energy efficiency. The OpenGL rendering stops when the ripples stop animating, or when the SpringBoard or Lock Screen is not visible, making it battery-friendly.

With AquaBoard XS, you can browse your icons while enjoying the fascinating water effects, and show off your cool SpringBoard to your friends. It works by overlaying an effect on native wallpapers. The tweak is for those who want to add some life to their SpringBoard.

Apart from the ten available water ripple themes, AquaBoard XS tweak offers a range of additional features that can be accessed through the preference pane in extras section. With the Rain Mode option, you can add a rain effect to the water ripple animation, and choose the frequency of the raindrops with options for slow, normal, or fast.

Additionally, you can toggle the “Disallow Rain Touches” option to prevent raindrops from appearing where you touch the screen. The Splash on Startup feature adds a splash animation when you first start up your device, while enabling the Reset Lock Timer option prevents the Lock Screen from dimming when you touch the screen. AquaBoard XS is a piad tweak.
