    Hi! I've jailbroken and modified my old 3G to run multitasking and wallpapers. Now I want to DISABLE wallpaper and have a nice clean black background. How do you do it without resorting to modifying plist? Search returns nothing.

    Thanks!

    Get a blacked out pic and set that as ur wallpaper. And if ur using a theme, click on user wallpaper in Winterboard and move it above the theme.

    I would think you would disable the winterboard settings for user wallpaper.

    I don't use winterboard. I use jailbroken and plist-modified iOS 4 on 3G. Solid black wallpaper doesn't make away the sluggishness and I find it strange you cannot actually DISABLE the wallpaper. I have turned wallpaper off in plist again.

    Thanks for suggestions anyway.

    Maybe this is why apple didn't include it in the first place....

    or why the 3G isnt getting the full iOS4 ;-)

    suggestion: get rid of the 3G it runs too slow. just buy the new one and sell the 3G on eBay.

    3. Save it
    4. Sync to iPhone
    5. Select black painting as wallpaper.

    Yes, of course.
    I'm honestly kind of surprised that having wallpapers seems to effect it this much. Maybe it's the icon and dock shading that also effects memory consumption. Although, backgrounds without that are much more difficult to manage.

    Or...

    1) Open the camera app on the iPhone
    2) Put the lens right up against your hand and snap a photo
    3) Got to camera roll and set as wallpaper

    That's actually quite sad that it has to come to that option to not have a wallpaper and stick to the utilitarian pre-iOS black background, non JB'd of course. Still a good idea that I didn't think of...

    Go figure, people kvetch for years that we can't have wallpapers, and then when we get them, people complain we can't *not* have wallpapers. Ha.

    You see, that's the funny thing about people. They all want different things. That's why there's something called options. They need to implement them. Like they don't even give us 3Gers a chance at the wallpaper, we have to jailbreak to get it. Sure, it slows down the phone a little bit, but some people can deal with that. And if they can't, there should be a "disable" button. How hard is that, really? But I guess that'd look bad to have one of their phones not running perfect, even if it was at the user's discretion.
