    First of all, maybe the tweak you are using has a bug. Sometimes a respring or a reboot will fix it. But I have an easy way to enable homescreen wallpaper without a tweak. Do you have iFile or know how to SSH???

    Are you using a tweak or Winterboard for the wallpaper?

    I'm using neither... Wallpaper homescreen comes with iOS 4 software I just go to My pics and choose a wallpaper but for some reason its not working anymore

    Apple doesn't allow 2G iPods to have homescreen wallpapers.

    You jailbreak yours with redsnow right? If so, use sn0wbreeze-2.2.1 with 4.2.1. It did da same to meh. Now I can change to watever I want.

    Or by using iFile or SSH, you could navigate to System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    From there you find a .plist file that starts with N followed by a bunch of numbers and letters. Then you open the .plist file and enable wallpaper or something like that.-imageuploadedbymodmyi1310792204.834862.jpg

    No problem, I was so happy that I found that .plist. If you also want a unified iPod with no tweak, add in "unified-ipod" with the Boolean.
