Thread: Wallpaper won't change

  1. #1
    Default Wallpaper won't change
    ok before I was able to go to Photo or settings and change my wallpaper and once I went and set a Customize wallpaper now I cqan't go back. The only wallpaper I can set now is any from Customize. I can no longer set a wallpaper from Photo Library or in Settings, I set it and nothing changes.

    EDIT: Found the answer
    Go to private/var/mobile/Library and you will see a file called LockBackground.jpg and delete it. Then go into settings and change the Lockdown Wallpaper to whatever you want and restart.

    of course, and yes i have tried everything turning off & on wallpaper & theme wallpaper nothing works. My issue is not not being able to see the wallpaper it's not being able to set any wallpaper but the one's in Customize which is very limited for me since I keep most of my wallpaper in iTunes.

    yea i found that too but i have to ssh into my iphone everytime i change a theme through customize......

    Here's an idea..... Go into Summerboard... and change the theme to "customize" then when you use customize to change themes, it will change everything correctly

    I'm having major problems. Before I install the " Customize 2.0 " app i was able to put what ever photo from camera roll and wallpaper picture for the wall paper picture, you know where you have to slide the slider to open your Iphone, right. In the " Customize 2.0 I go under the " Customize Tools Catergory " I tap the Customize Images/Sounds, It takes me to " Catorgories " I then tap Wallpaper, which takes me to " Wallpaper " and 2 choices come up, 1 is " LockScreenWallpaper " and the other is " Wallpaper ".
    when I tap on the " Locked " one it takes me to the "OringinalBackup" which is the picture of the Earth. Is there anyway for me to change it back to choosing the wallpaper I want. I did what I was told to do about the SSH and deleted the file on the
    " winscp " and nothing, please help.

    thanks for the Information on the problem, everything seems okay for now.

    I had the same issue not too long ago. I fixed the problem by installing "mobileFinder" and then deleting the "Lockbackground.jpg" in the very bottom. Once you delete the .jpg you should be able to switch to whatever picture you want....back to normal. I hope this helps.

    I'm having this problem right now. I solved it a couple days ago when I first started messing with customize but I had to rejailbreak and now my mobile finder won't delete the file, and when I ssh into the phone and delete the file I set which picture will be my wall paper and restart only to find that lockbackground.jpg is reset.

    Find the permissions of the file and set them to 0755

    Default Me too!
    I had (have) the same problem too but when I upgraded to 2.0 EVERYTHING was erased except the damn wallpaper! I see someone has posted a fix that refers to a thread. Is that Mac function or is there a program I don't know about?

    Sorry for the naivety...but where exactly is:
    private/var/mobile/Library ???
    Is it on my iMac at home? Or is it somewhere on the iPhone?

    Default You have to use Fetch with the SFTP or Cyberduck (google them for MAc
    You have to use Fetch with the SFTP or Cyberduck (google them for Mac)
    Then you can go into the directories private/var/mobile/Library etc. and do what the instructions say to do. If on PC, use another ftp client perhaps WinFTP or some vcomon freebie, there are tons of them, and just make sure you select SFTP and not just FTP in the connection type, there should be a pulldown menu, then enter the ip address of your iPhone (found under with WIFI settings of the phone it self) click on the blue arrow to get it, usually it's something like 192.168.0.3 or so... and use the login "root" no quotes and "alpine" as the pass agian no quotes in the ftp app and hit connect, or login or whatever the apps says..fetch will say 'submit" or "connect" i think. Don't do anything else in here as you can mess things up, but don't be too afraid either, it's pretty easy to do. Good Luck!!!!!
