    Default randomly change homescreen wallpaper
    I recently downloaded the random apple wallpaper theme from cydia. It randomly cycles thru 31 wallpapers with no problem when you unlock. I am trying to get it to work with the home screen as well. Currently it will only change when I respring.

    Any ideas?

    Here is the code that I am using:

    Code:
    <script src="configuration.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
        document.write('<style type="text/css">body{background: black url('+LOCK_WALLPATH+(((new Date()).getTime()%LOCK_WPNUM)+1)+'.'+LOCK_IMGTYPE+');}</style>');</script>
    If someone can point me in the correct direction so that I can get it to change on a certain time interval, that would be helpful

    I doubt you can... lockbackground.html always updates whenever you lock/unlock your device where as springboard changes need a respring. I have no idea why this happens, it just does!
    If you buy the theme 'notebook' this has a lockscreen widget that uses a slideshow to cycle through a set amount of images, rather than changing the the image outright. I'd imagine this could be edited to work on the springboard? And if not, you'll at least get a nice theme out of it!
