    Default Is 640x960 HD Lockscreen Background Rotator Possible
    This is an issue I first visited 2 years ago and never found a solution.

    If you want to have a Lockscreen Background that changes, as far as I know, there is no App. There is a Winterboard Theme called Random Apple Wall LS that does it using Javascript in the HTML code like this:

    document.write('<style type="text/css">body{background: black url('+LOCK_WALLPATH+(((new Date()).getTime()%LOCK_WPNUM)+1)+'@2x.'+LOCK_IMGTY PE+');}</style>');

    You have to then use Diskaid or something to replace the images with your own and change the configuration.js file. The problem is, you can't use HD 640x960 images with it. If you do, it only shows you the upper left 320x480 portion of the image. I've tried numerous things:

    - Name all files [1-x]@2x.jpg
    - Convert to png
    - Move files out of Lockscreen subfolder into theme's root folder (saw rumor of this)
    - Add the background-size CSS like this:

    document.write('<style type="text/css">body{background: black url('+LOCK_WALLPATH+(((new Date()).getTime()%LOCK_WPNUM)+1)+'@2x.'+LOCK_IMGTY PE+'); background-size: 640px 960px; background-repeat:no-repeat; margin: 0px; padding: 0px;}</style>');

    I even tried using this iPad example that using the <IMG> tag (and changed the resolution):

    How-To Create a Winterboard Theme which change Wallpaper random

    None of these solutions worked. The only thing that I think works is if you style the background image to 320x480 to shrink it down which defeats the purpose of trying to get an HD lockscreen image. I can't believe Winterboard is still using 320x480 on the Lockscreen!?
