    How to change background without summerboard?

    Hey guys,

    I'm not a big customize freak so I thought I'd change the icons to something cool without installing Summerboard.
    So I collected together some cool icons (my sincere appreciation for the awesome work you guys!) and replaced them with the 'icon.png' in the .apps in /Applications. That worked fine..

    But I'm having a problem changing the wallpaper.. the 'home' wallpaper.. that default black one (not the 'unlock' BG).. I cant seem to find where it is...

    I changed the Default_BG.png is /System/.../CoreServices/Springboard/ but seems thats not the one...
    Although the battery charge images were successfully changed which are in the same folder...

    Does anybody know where the wallpaper is located?
    Also I want to change the icons of 'Music, Video, Photos and iTunes'... can anybody tell me where those icon.png's are residing..

    Thanks a lot guys...

    to change the music icon or video icon just go into there app. folders then change the icon-audioplayer or icon-videopplayer icons and it will work!

    Hmm.. . I'm not sure. I know that your lock background is stored in ~/Library

    Thanks for the reply bro..

    Yeah I found the unlock background... I viewed every possible .png I could find and none were a black BG.. maybe its not .png afterall...

    damn... I thought summerboard picks the theme folder and replace the icon.png in .app's with the icons in the theme folder... so maybe does the same for BG.. seems not afterall....
