If the “Harlem Shake” can have NASA dancing in Mission Control, then it would be really uncool if iOS didn’t get the Harlem Shake treatment.

Thankfully two hackers have come to the rescue and hacked the iPhone to brings the hugely successful meme to the SpringBaord and the Lock screen.

Filippo Bigarella, developer of popular jailbreak tweaks such as Springtomize has developed a tweak, name still unknown, which gives the iPhone SpringBaord the Harlem Shake. It also comes with its own Activator action to start it.

Meanwhile, hacker and developer by the Twitter handle bensge has also created a tweak called Harlem Shake that gives your iPhone Lock screen the Harlem Shake. You can start it by triple tapping on the slide to unlock button.

To install the tweak you need to add the developer’s beta repo http://bensge.com/repo in Cydia.

Let me know what you think of the iPhone version of the Harlem Shake in the comments below. And if this wasn’t funny (or silly) enough, click on this link to make our website do the Harlem Shake.


Developers can also add the Harlem Shake to their apps as an easter egg by using the source code available on GitHub.
