    Default Can't change the lockscreen background.
    Here's my problem. I had cydia as well as customize installed on my iphone 3g with version 2.0. I used customize to install a wallpaper, a few days later i tried to change it and i couldn't change it. I uninstalled customize then reinstalled and nothing happened. I performed a full restore with plans of jailbreaking my phone again, but the lockscreen is still the same even after the restore.

    Does anyone have any suggestions??? I've seen some posts about SSH, but i'm new to the iphone and I'm not even sure what SSH is or how to perform this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    dude just use regular settings. Go wallpaper and simply select the paper you want.

    That's the problem. I can't change it through settings. No matter what wallpaper i select through settings or through photos, it doesn't change.

    Here's a good walkthrough on how to SSH to your device:

    SSH on Windows - ModMyI - Wiki

    I would advise you to do this first, then change the permissions or delete the lockscreen in your iPhone.

    Thanks for the help guys. I already restored it and that didn't help. I think the SSH route might be the way to go for me. One last question do you need to have a jailbroken phone in order to SSH into your phone from your PC? I ask because i updated my Iphone to the new software 2.0.2. If you do need to have a jailbroken phone then i guess i'll just have to wait until the new winpwn comes out before i try this. Thanks again guys.
