Help with Wallpaper
I appologise in advance if this question is kicking about the forum, if it is I must have circled the thread.
I have been away from the iphone gossip for a while now and its taking it's toll i suppose. Anyway, I have a theme called Orbz which the majority of members will be familiar with it. I love the app icons it displays however the dull grey boards behind it doesnt appeal to me at all. I simply want to keep the app icons (Orbz style), but replace the springboard background with a picture I already have in my camera roll. I thought that if I ensured my user background was higher than the orbz theme within Winterboard it will enable me to display my own wallpaper.
Can someone fill me in with my problem, if it can be solved, if we cannot do this now, anything. I've tried my best looking for this answer but I just cannot seem to find it. They are posts, articles suggesting that if I have my user background higher than one of my themes within winterboard it will enable me to display a picture I would like, but I've tried it and no luck.
Any feedback would be highly appreciated !

I came on here today to post this exact question. I am running 4.2.1 teethered jailbreak iPhone 4. If I figure this out I will let you know also. The weird thing is when I open a folder on the iPhone, my camera roll background shows, but as soon as I close the folder out, the theme wallpaper pops back up.

Some themes have wallpapers baked in--they only use whatever they came with, and basically overwrite whatever it is that you choose. I remember one of my themes being this way--you could only use the plain background when I got it. The solution for that one at least was to open the html file for the lockscreen and replace a bit of code so that the background image was tied to what your phone was using. This was the piece of code I used:
Depending on how the theme was written, you might be able to use that to fix yours; just watch the formatting in the html file (spaces, indents, etc) and be sure to respring after you try changing wallpapers. As an aside, I think doing stuff like this is a great way of learning a bit about making custom themes: find one you like, save a copy of it to your desktop, and start trying to make little tweaks to it to see how things work. Good luck!

Thanks, I will try this, I am also looking into logging into my iPhone via ssh to fix this. I would like to change my root and mobile password, but when I run MobileTerminal it opens and closes immediatly. It must not be compatible with 4.2.1 Is there any other program i can use to log in and changed these passwords.

I actually don't use MobileTerminal or OpenSSH or anything like that...I just do everything via iPhoneBrowser on my desktop, with a USB connection. I don't know if it makes any real difference, I just never install anything I don't really need ON my phone.

Ok, I figured the Locked background problem out, at least for me. I am using HDApple theme currently, and the wallpaper.png file must be locked or hardcoded to always show. So I browsed to /var/stash/Themes/"the name of my theme" and replaced wallpaper.png with my camera roll pic. I renamed the camera roll pic to wallpaper.png before replacing it. ( I also made backup copies of all the pics just in case) Hope this helps. Now I am going to start playing with the icon png files to see if I can customize those.

But whatever way you do it, it's fun, isn't it?

The way I described was used for an html lockscreen...I used Wordpad to open the html file within the theme (usually called LockBackground.html or something like that) and found the section that looked like this:
padding: 620px 0 0 0;
The background-image url was originally set to url(Private/Background.png) or something similar, which would only give me the background from the theme. Changing it to the mobile/Library one above let me use the regular way of changing backgrounds.
Now depending on how your particular theme is coded, you might not have an html file, or might have to do this in a css file, maybe? Whatever you do, I'd recommend just making a copy of the file first as a backup. Then if you screw it up (I did) you've got the clean copy to use for a second try. I can try to go through it if you can tell me what is in your theme folder.
