    Default Wallpaper darker/dimmer than Lockscreen - Why?
    Hey guys. Trying to make a composite theme here - little bits and bobs from other themes that have certain things I like, but something really annoying me is that my springboard wallpaper seems a tad darker than on the lockscreen - colours are nowhere near as vibrant, and it's really annoying me.

    And no, 'Dim Wallpaper' is not enabled in Winterboard. In fact, I even deleted it to make sure. Have also disabled all themes on Winterboard but it made no difference.

    Lockscreen & Springboard:


    Side-by-side comparison:


    Does anybody have any idea what is causing this and how to fix it? The dull wallpaper is really horrible looking. And yes, same thing happens when I set other wallpapers as lockscreen/springboard too.

    Been wondering the same thing, only my screenshots don't show it being darker.

    and it's only the springboard wallpaper.

    Using winterboard 320x480 wallpaper is fine???

    I have tried various wallpapers - iphone sized ones and larger sized ones. All result in a dimmer wallpaper than the lockscreen. Just cannot understand it at all.

    I figured it out. You have to ssh or use iphone browser and go to:
    System/Libray/PrivateFrameworks/SpringBoardUI.framework - there is a .png file in there named "[email protected]" I backed it up, then then replaced it with one with no gradient in it. Dark wallpaper is GONE! I couldn't just delete it cuz somehow it the wallpaper was still dark, even though the file was gone. I HAD TO replace it with a blank one.

    any chance you could upload the file you put in SpringBoardUI.framework

    I caught that, no problem. Funny thing is, I dont think it did anything for me. I hoped it would bright stuff up even at mod. low brightness.
