09-30-2008, 11:00 PM #1[HELP] How to change lockscreen background through Winterboard?
Can you change the image in the lock screen through winterboard?
I know you can change with your own photos and "Set as Wallpaper"
But I havent seen a theme that also changes the lock screen.
It only changes the main screen wallpaper.
Is this possible through winterboard?
I thought about this becasue downloading "slider themes" that rely on the background image to make it work.
When you check them on winterboard. You would just see the slider.
and not the wallpaper image. So you have to take a lot of other steps to get the right image for the slider

Yeah, you can. The image would be named "LockBackground.png". Can include with a theme.
Edit: One thing though, since Winterboard works in a "pecking" order so to speak, you will have to have the background on top of Winterboard (as the first selected item). Basically, once its on winterboard....take your finger and place it up top.

Just in case you don't know, you can drag themes (or wahtever) around in Winterboard by holding your finger on a checked theme and then sliding up or down. Hold finger over check mark (on right).
So basically, if your theme doesn't have a Lockbackground.png in it, you can simply make one (or download one) and using SSH (or Diskaid) drag that LockBackground.png into the proper directory.
I hope that answered your question.

Invisible lock-clock background
All the Lockscreen badges further down will be cleared.
Edit : I found this the easiest way.
If you prefer applicating the function one by one, copy the blank UILCDBackground.png into the UIImages folder of a theme.
.zip contents : invisible.theme (give it the name you prefer, it doesn't matter)
(hope it helped )
