    Im not the greatest with instructions so ill do what i can.

    All your really doing is copying the background you want to your phone like you would sync any other pic.

    then copying that same background and croping off the top and keeping the bottom 91pixeels and placing it in the yourdockhere layer.

    anyways i only tested it with that one background
