    I have seen these before, how do you add another wallpaper to a theme where you can switch in WinterBoard. Ex. Theme and Theme Alt. Wallpaper. Any help would be appreciated.

    Make a new theme called Alt. Wallpaper, put the alternative wallpaper in there. Drag it to the top and select it when you want to change the wallpaper.

    i guess one would be to ssh into your ipod make a copy of the theme you want to have an alt put new wallpaper in and then set can swap between the two

    so step would be
    1. ssh into ipod /libary/theme
    2. make a copy of theme and call it (theme name) alt
    3. replace Wallpaper.png with new Wallpaper.png
    4. respring ipod go into winterboard and should see the same theme twice normal and alt

    Why do that?

    By duplicating the theme you would simply add disk space, however if you layer the themes and put a alternative wallpaper theme with only the alt Wallpaper.png on top of the original theme, it should over write the original theme wallpaper and replace it with the alt wallpaper.
