    Default How To: Per Page Wallpapers iOS4
    WinterBoard has not been updated to allow per page wallpapers in iOS4, but I have found a way around it. This is a small guide that will show you how to get a similar function back.

    Example on iPhone 4

    1. Install Categories from Cydia
    2. Create a Category named " " (just a space) and choose any icon
    3. Create a folder with the name of your theme and inside it a folder named "Icons"
    4. Use the provided .psd to create the page's wallpaper and save it as "1.png" in the Icons folder
    5. Move the category to be the second app on the page
    6. SSH your theme into root/var/mobile/stash/themes.xxx
    7. Rename 1.png to " .png" (that is a space followed by.png)
    8. Select your theme in WinterBoard
    9. Hold down (so they shake) all your applications hidden by the Category icon
    10. You're done! You now have a makeshift per page wallpaper!

    This works by using a large icon that covers the wallpaper exactly and is therefore used as a new wallpaper. It is an empty Category folder because any real app would look messed up in the multitasking bar. It's not a perfect replacement for a WinterBaord update, but it should be sufficient until there is an update.

    *I have only tested this on an iPhone 4 where the icon is upscaled and not HD, but I believe this is not a problem on all other devices.

    Hi Sir

    I've taken all the steps exactly as you stated
    but you forget a few things that i find important to know

    like how does it work with more icons on a screen (5 row icons)
    and why is it that it has to be the 2nd icon on the page

    i also have shrink installed so the icons appear smaller

    now i don't know what the effects are but for me this isn't working

    also i assumed that i have to remove the white letters in the psd as well right?

    anyway here is a screenshot taken on a 3gs 4.0


    is it possible you could test it on a 3gs too?
    or do you have a formula to know the precise format of the psd?
    so i could get this to work on my idevice as well.

    Default Per Page Wallpapers iOS4
    If you can pre-determine the total pages, we can use "Simple Background" - a free program; and create a wallpaper - total pages+2x320 px width and 480 px height using the given(in the theme) wallpaper for page-1, the given page pngs (say page0.png etc) and again the given wallpaper for the other pages. (All 320x480 pngs). Remember to use a transparent background while creating the panorama wallpaper. Save the created wallpaper in the photo library, activate "Simple Background' and the wallpaper. You will get the per page wallpapers as a single panorama wallpaper.
