    Hey everyone.

    Any word on an app similar to Customize (when JBing) on the App Store, which allows you to make a theme in the background (or a background picture) at the very minimum?

    JBing, unfortunately, isn't as hyped up to be as I have seen in the past, with the release of the App Store. So just asking if anyone has heard of ANY news regarding a developer for an app similar or works like customize, where you can add themes or background pictures to the home screen.

    This idea is really the only thing that keeps me in between JBing and not JBing.
    I would be honored to support any developers by buying apps.

    Thanks!

    Really? Not even the simplicity of making a background picture?

    Then why does Microsoft allow the Zune software to do so?

    I bet with an app simply to make a background pic, it would encourage many more buyers!

    JB is fine, but two things:
    1. Not possible on 2G YET.
    2. I would rather support the App Store, and have legit, trusted updates for them.

    Not sure exactly though. I have JB iPods in the past. For friends.

    Like I said, JB is my SECOND option.

    First, I want to compare why Apple doesn't allow even the simplest custom background PICTURE to the home screen, when a Zune can.

    (And NO, I do not want to buy a Zune!) lol

    It's not a picture, it's a script. You have to run unsigned script to put a picture over the black BG, script that would not be allowed in the SDK.
