    Default Real Paged theming on iPhone 4 iOS 4 for every device!
    Everybody has begun the search for paged theming on iOS4. well there is a very simple solution to it. First, you will need to download Simple Background from cydia, it is free and also works well with android themes. What you need to do is create a long background with each page smushed together in 1 photo.

    example-

    click the picture to see the full image


    Once you have simple background downloaded, you will have to use these settings:


    You could include the preferences in a theme, automatically making the settings correct.

    PS: mods, please make this a sticky.
    PPS: MAking paged theming will also take patience and trial and error. it is incredibly easy to misalign the photos in the picture.

    I have not had a crash on my phone yet. It may be conflicting with another app you have installed. Otherwise it should be working fine. The only known issue vie had with it is the wallpaper covering up the icons in the app switcher

    So much better than my workaround.

    PS It's called Simple Background, not Simple Wallpaper

    Believe me, your way is also a very good alternative, but what people want is speed. If they dont have the money to buy CategoriesSB, categories loads rather slow.Right now however it is more useful because we don't have springjumps on iOS4 yet.

    I don't have the money for CategoriesSB, I'm using Categories.

    I wish this way could keep the wallpaper and have different page wallpapers on top. So transparent areas would show the wallpaper.

    couldn't you just label them page0.png, page1.png, page2.png so on and so forth? Or is that disabled in 4.x?
    if not then [email protected] etc. etc.?

    and to SirTimothy1 above, if you have winterboard you should be able to have one theme that has partial transparent background then a theme below that that has whatever you'd like to show up behind that background and it should be overlayed so the top theme appears to be above the bottom one.

    it's EASY to align and combine pics on photoshop cs4
    they pretty much snap into place lol

    if the wallpaper covers the icons in the app switcher, respring. that's what i did and it fit perfectly thereafter

    I ran into the same problem, but used SBSettings to get into safe mode rather than trying to struggle with navigating settings/activator with 1/4 of the screen. Toggle SBSettings, hit the power button and in the pop-up choose to restart in safe mode. From there you can do the usual Cydia - uninstall procedure.

    Isn't the wallpaper part of the HTML widget? So it overlays the one you've selected through settings.
    Anyway, what theme is that you're using?

    You have to make a picture, sync it on your phone, then, while setting your wallpaper in the photos app,select simple background.

    are you on ios4?
    you have to set the wallpaper by choosing a pic from your picture folder.

    best to mail it to yourself
    save it and set as simple background.



    My question is how do you know what size to cut your pics?
    i have a 3gs 4.0 which has a res of 320x480
    ive made a wallpaper consisting of 11 pages = 3520x480
    but still simple background doesn't scale it correctly (with 1.00)

    any ideas guys?

    That 1/4 size screen when apps open happened to me a few days ago. I had to restore, but do you know what could have caused it? Before it happened to me the camera and photo apps would open up and only show a black screen, then the gps wouldn't locate me in maps. I didn't know anyone else had the same problem.
