Hey guys, so i finally found it after mad searchin.
If you go to /Var/Root/Library/LockBackground.jpg<<that is the wallpaper. Apparently the iphone's software is designed to "copy and convert" your album "wallpaper" selection to 'LockBackground.jpg'. I noticed when I selected a .jpg image or a .png, it looked different on the actual locked screen. I figure that because when selecting a wallpaper you're allowed to resize or move it around, it has to create another version of your .jpg, but it loses quality in the process i think. Anyhow, hope it helps you guys. I just used iphonebrowser, traversed to /var/root/library and replaced the LockBackground.jpg with my "original" high quality pic =], looks hella nice!

FYI, The image quality is reduced when the image is moved to the phone. Not when set as your background.
