    Default lockBackground.png
    Hey so yesterday I was searching all day long but I just cant figure out a way to replace the lockscreen background for my theme. Most old posts say to use lockbackground.png but clearly that doesent work anymore. I also tried html but it was just a bunch of red and grey squares cluttered on the lockscreen. I am running 4.3.3 on an Ipod touch 3rd Generation 32gb. PLLLZZZZ HELP! THANK YOU!!!!!

    Send the image to your email account, open the email you just sent and save the image to your photo roll. Open the Photos App and select it as your background image. Easy

    lockBackground.png-img_0040-1-.pnglockBackground.png-img_0041-1-.pngToo anyone who was wondering I just figured it out. Navigate to var/stash/themes/whatevertheme.theme, make a HTML file and copy and paste this in it;
    <html><body><img src='LockBackground.png' style='width:320px;height:480px;position:absolute; top:0;left:0' /></body></html>
    Rename it to; lockbackground.html

    Then take the picture u want to make into the lockscren background and name it lockbackground.png inside the .theme folder right next to the HTML and whamoo ur done! Hope this helped
