    Can't you just load it into the Photo Library with iTunes and then choose it as a wallpaper?

    If you want to use the same picture for your current theme you will have to SFTP (fugu or cyberduck) and replace the background in the theme section with the one you want to use.

    You can also open the "Other.Artwork" file and replace the 2 wallpaper pngs, they are Other-ver111_2.png and Other-ver111_3.png. One is for the locked screen and the other is for the rest.

    This should help.

    you will 4 things:
    1. Photoshop or some other photo editting tool.
    2. A way to connect to your phone (SFTP)
    3. this link will tell you which image to edit:

    4. this program will convert the artwork file into a usable file:

    this is how i am doing it works fine, just ensure wallpaper is set on in summerboard and more importantly wallpaper of the theme is set to off!
