SetWallpaper 2.1.0 - SMS BACKGROUND IN 3.0!!!
This is a mobile Substrate addon to wallpaper on homescreen and sms background working on 3.x firmware
To use, SSH into your iPhone and place the deb into root. Run dpkg -i SetWallpaper_2.1.0.deb
put into the /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall/
Once installed, go to photos and select any photo click on use wallpaper. On this wallpaper screen in the top left you see 2 explanation marks on either side:
- Right side mark if pressed will set homescreen background with confirmation
- Left side mark on wallpaper screen if pressed will set message screen background with confirmation
both require reboot once. This is not made by me

just to be clear, with this i can set the springboard wallpaper ? or the lockscreen wallpaper which we can already set without 3rd party apps..
(what i miss most on my iPhone, a decent File Manager..)

so this is not listed in Cydia yet lol just a thought... does anyone know where the bg image for messages is anyways i would much rather just ssh in and replace that file..

The reason this screws with Winterboard hide icon labels is becuz it adds a reflection to the dock aswell messing with the plists. Which makes no sense...why add reflection to the package?

It's deffinatly a step in the right direction.
This app only installed for me when placed in root/var/mobile and then installed via mobile terminal.
Good luck everybody.
