    I need some assistance on changing my the one behind all my apps/games/etc NOT my homescreen. I have tried to go into /private/var/stash/Themes.xxxxxxx
    and put my Wallpaper.png into every single on of the theme folders but it still hasn't worked.

    You mean the springboard wallpaper?

    What I would is make a new folder in the Themes.xxxxxxx folder and call it something like "mywallpaper.theme"

    Then put the file "Wallpaper.png" inside it.

    The go into winterboard and enable the theme that has the same name as the folder you put the wallpaper into, so if you used my example enable "mywallpaper" "also be sure this item is at the top of the enabled themes list, just drag it to the top"

    You could also just drop it into another theme folder but it HAS to be enabled, and be sure that theme is above all the others on the list "just drag it to the top". Because winterboard has a override system for themes, which makes it easy to make custom theme layouts.

    Think of it this way, the bottom theme on the list that is enabled is like the foundation, and everything above it is stacked on top of it, so if the thing above the foundation theme has something that is the same, the that thing covers up the foundation, and anything above that acts the same way.

    Do I have to crop my image to a specific size?
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    Well did some googling and figured this out.

    My last question is, can I put a .gif image for my springboard background? I want to put 5-6 pictures into the .gif so I can see 5-6 different springboard background images.
