    Can someone help me with changing my wallpaper? I looked at the faq and saw this:

    Wallpapers, Status Bar, Lock Screen Wallpapers, and Docks

    Now on to the really simple things. These are for the faint of heart that are unwilling to try anything without a guide, or the plain clueless.

    In ~Themes, create a folder. I'll use "Theme" this time.

    In that folder, you would put this for a wallpaper (320x480):

    Wallpaper.png

    Dock:

    Dock.png

    Status Bar:

    StatusBar.png

    Lock Screen Wallpaper:

    LockBackground.png

    Those were tough. Now on to some tougher ones!

    I have created that folder and put my image I want for my wallpaper, I changed the file type to .png but I still can't get it to show as my wallpaper.

    Do you have Winterboard installed? It creates one.

    Check /private/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx, Library/Themes is just a shortcut to this location.

    Yes, I have Winterboard installed, I even have the Vista theme installed and running. Right now I am in the /private/var/stash/Themes.xXxxxx

    I see a lot of different Theme folders, which one do I put my .png in?

    Whichever one you want to change the wallpaper on. So you're theme name is "Theme" so you would put the Wallpaper.png in the folder Theme.theme . And the capitalization does matter on Wallpaper.png .

    I still can't get my wallpaper to show, I have put "Wallpaper.png" into every single theme folder and it still doesn't show.

    make sure when you name the .png file, you use a capital "W" not a "w" when you spell Wallpaper.png
