    I'm unable to change the wallpaper for the lock screen. I go into settings, change it normally with an image I got into my ipod via iTunes but after I set it, it wont change.


    Any ideas? Even better, does anyone know how can I change it manually?

    You need to delete the lockbackground.png in the Library directory and it will work fine.

    So after you delete the lock background jpg do your restart? And then change the lock background or what needs to be done? I am just hoping to change the lock background so its different then my summer board.

    You can't do it with iTunes. You need an ssh program like winscp. You could also use finder or file browser on the iPod itself.
