Hey everyone Im having a problem changing the wallpaper on my iphone.
I cant put my own pictures or even a theme as wallpaper. It wont change, its been like this for a while. Even on 1.1.4 it was like that.

Lock screen, but i think it wont work for icon background either.
When i was on 1.1.4 i had a theme and it wallpaper was stuck on that theme. Before i updated to 2.0.1 i made a backup and now its on 2.0.1. And it wont change, even with winterboard theme.

SSH into your phone
Delete that and then choose a new Wallpaper

or reset the permissions of that file to 666 and you can change it over and over without deleting it
