ive been looking around and finaly figured out how to use .gif images for a wallpaper, and thought id make a little tutorial for you guys that dont know how to do it.
ok first you will need, SSH, WinScp (Mac Users cyberduck, Transmit) WinterBoard, JailBroken iPhone or iPod touch, im using 3.0 frimware, havnt tested on anyothers.
ok first of all you will need to know where "/private/var/stash/Themes" folder is might have something like "Themes.7nWuZ8" That is where WinterBoard loads the themes from.
ok you will need to make a folder [name it what you like, example, MyWallpaper] now that you have made a folder open it up, inside you will need to make 1 more folder called "images" and a html file named "Wallpaper.html" Inside Wallpaper.html you will need to have this code.(this is the code i use, you can also use your own custom codes, anything that grabs an image file will work)
ipod screen res is 480x320, the above code works if you dont want to resize images.
<IMG HEIGHT="480" WIDTH="320" SRC="images/Wallpaper.gif">
after you have that save it, now open up the images folder, and put your .gif file in there name it "Wallpaper.gif"
so now you should have something like this..
once you have that, open up WinterBoard on your iPhone/iTouch, and what you named the folder in the begining will show up as the theme name, select your folder, should respring, and your done..
HOW TO USE A IMAGE FROM A WEBSITE (use ifile on iphone to change backgrounds)
just change the above code to this
IF YOU WANNA CHANGE YOUR BACKGROUND USING IFILE, JUST HOLD DOWN ON AN IMAGE TILL "COPY" COMES UP CLICK THAT, THEN OPEN IFILE, FIND YOUR THEME AND JUST CLICK "PASTE" IN BETWEEN SRC="CLICK PASTE IN HERE"
<IMG HEIGHT="480" WIDTH="320" SRC="WWW.YOURIMAGESOURCE.COM/IMAGE.GIF">
