Thread: Wallpaper goes black when opening ios4 folders?

  1. #1
    Question Wallpaper goes black when opening ios4 folders?
    When running stock, everything works as normal when opening a folder:

    -Springboard wallpaper splits; springboard icons and wallpaper dim.



    When I apply any theme, however, the folder action seems to have a bug. The screen splits, but my springboard wallpaper disappears. The icons dim as normal but the wallpaper goes black. When closing the folder there is a bit of a pause as my wallpaper reappears.


    It's maddening. Anyone deal with this?
    Can't keep my hands off my iPhone...

    Yep, in the mean time you can just save the png and put it into the default wallpaper folder and just number it to the next consequetive number. Then go to settings>wallpaper and set it there. Don't forget to rename or delete Wallpaper.png in your (winterboard)theme.

    Has anyone figured this problem out yet? I don't think its an issue with WinterBoard, I think its got to do with a new file name such as homebackground.jpg instead of wallpaper.png. The problem is I can't figure out where to place this file in my theme...

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    It's wallpaper.png that is doing it (winterboard) so to fix remove the wallpaper.png from the theme you are using.

    If you are using widgets currently you need wallpaper.png so they will show (native wallpaper shows on top of widgets) so you will have to live with it till it's fixed.

    It's so annoying. I've removed the wallpaper and lockscreen background from my theme but where is the "Default wallpaper folder" mentionned above?

    it was mentioned above bro. remove the wallpaper.png from your themes folder. wallpaper.png is usually needed for a widget to run off a wallpaper.

    Yes but if I do that my wallpaper will turn default black completely not just when I open a folder..I have an Ipod touch 2g, and it does not support homescreen wallpaper with the 4.2.1 firmware, that is why I have the wallpaper.png on my theme folder so that it will replace the default black homescreen, but I was wondering if there is anyway that my wallpaper wont turn black whenever I open a folder

    im not sure if this will work for you, but it does for my iphone 3gs. give it a go and find out.

    1. open the image you want to use as a wallpaper in photoshop (or any good photo edit program). make sure that the image is at 320x480 and save it as "101.png" (without the quotations" and is set to "interlaced" (when you save the file).

    2. open a new file in photoshop etc making it 75x75. now drag over the image (or any other image you wish to use) and re-size if needed. now save this image as "101.thumbnail.png" and again make sure its saved as "interlaced".

    3. open your SSH browser (WinSHH or Cyberduck) and navigate to "private/var/stash/Wallpaper.xxxxx/iPhone". now copy and paste the two files you made earlier to this folder.

    4. respring you iphone/ipod.

    5. go to "Settings" on your "Home page" and select "Wallpaper". click on the phone image, select "Wallpaper" and you should then be able to see the thumbnail image that you made in step 2. press it and press "Set Home Screen". when it's finished saving, press the home button to exit out.

    and your done.


    this method also works for the lockscreen. and no need for html coding.

    if if still doesn't work, then you can try and delete the "com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.0" to "com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.3" files found in "private/var/mobile/Library/Caches" folder. deleting these files will not brick your iphone/ipod. after you have deleted these files, respring your iphone/ipod.

    It Wont work, he does not support homescreen wallpaper, What you are trying to do is set a thumbnail in the native settings/wallpaper but that will only display in the ipods wallpaper not the homescreen paper.. this is a problems that i've been trying to solve for a long time, but I can't find a way to fix it, the problem with the iPod Touch 2 Generation is that is has a 4.0 - 4.1 - 4.2 firmware but it will not support homescreen wallpaper, multitasking and some other stuff
