Thread: Wallpaper STUCK!!!

  1. #1
    Default Wallpaper STUCK!!!
    I am having a problem with my lockscreen wallpaper. I had been ziphone jailbroken and decided to un-jailbreak my phone to get ready for the 2.0 release. However, now when I attempt to assign a new picture to my wallpaper screen, I cannot change the wallpaper whatsoever. It stays showing the same picture that I last had assigned via Customize 2.0. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Same thing started happening to me after I restored and winpwned. Maybe it was because I loaded the backup from before the restore, or maybe Customize just doesn't want you to change your wallpaper unless it's through it. =/

    You will need to SSH into your phone and go to /private/var/mobile/library folder and you should see a lockbackground.jpg file...just delete it and then set your new one like normal.

    Haha, thanks =D
    Worked great.
    I hate using Customize for applying themes.. wish it was still just simple image mods.

    So...I delete the a sync with iTunes and then un-jailbreak again? Then I should be back to normal?

    You shouldn't need to re-jailbreak again. Just delete the LockBackground and you should be able to change your wallpaper via "Settings". Do NOT use Customize to change wallpaper, it will cause it to "stick" everytime. I know some themes come with wallpapers in the pack so its kind of a bummer of you want to use it.

    Question :(
    Do you HAVE to rejailbreak your new iphone to SSH in and delete the file? I don't want to jailbreak my new iphone unless there is no other option.... Thanks!
