Glow Text does not use any batt at all. Just text-shadow on your icon text and download the GlowText file. Check the folder and you will see the plist file.

For Mp4 movie wallpaper, the movie will be moving. Pretty cool rite. I've updated the mp4 wallpaper with a link for you to checkout some clips.

@Masamune

The plist is in the GlowText folder. Use a text editor to open the plist.

mp4 wallpaper only can be used via Winterboard. I have not tried the Summerboard path way.

Try deleting the Summerboard Gun Metal and only use the one you put in Library/Themes. That should work.
