I have tried to make custom wallpaper for my lockscreen and unlock screen using a few tutorials, but haven't had any luck. I also was trying to get a hold of a program called lockback which was suppose to help me edit a HTML page. I am familiar with how to SSH and navigate around the file system. Can someone give me the easiest way to do this. A tutorial that they have followed to get this done. What size does the picture have to be scaled down to, what format (PNG/GIF) and can I use another program besides Adobe Photoshop? Thanks for the help.

Size for iPhone 3g/s is 320x480...

I have an Iphone 4. From what I have read I think it is still 320 by 480
I can replace the Converted-LockBackground.jpg picture inside of the typhone4 folder. That means I have my custom wallpaper on the lockscreen, but it still shows the clock and sliding unlock key like it is typhone4. I would like to be able to just use my custome wallpaper for either the lockscreen or unlock screen without putting it inside of an already working folder. If I do this do I have to create a bundle, Ullmages, private folders in stash, themes and does there need to be something in them. Hopefully I am making sense and someone can tell me how they go about doing this. Thanks

Are you using someone else's HTML lockscreen as a template?
The easiest way to set the lock screen is just email the images to yourself, then save them to photo roll and set them as lock/ homescreen.
For HTML themes you simply replace the images with your own, naming them exactly the same as the originals.
Also, the resolution of the iPhone 4 is 960x640.

it should be 640x960
did you make sure it was named in correct format, ie. [email protected] and [email protected]? (that is for one wallpaper BTW)

I can add a homescreen picture by selecting add as wallpaper to any picture. I cannot do this via the lockscreen option. I can also add a picture to the stash, themes folder inside of a Cydia Lockscreen theme by replacing there picture with mine. That still leaves the date, clock with my backround picture. I am not sure where you want me to check if I am naming correct. I am including a picture of where I think i rename pictures and tell me if that is correct.
