    How can I have a custom lockscreen background when using the MultiBarLockerscreen? i tried deleting the Lockscreenbackground.png in SSH, but all I get is a black background. I also set the "User Lockscreen" above Multibar on the Winterboard list, but still no luck.

    I will give you unlimited amounts of chocolate if you can help me.

    One of the problems I've noticed is that when you set a "wallpaper" through your photos app it saves it as LockBackground.<b>jpg</b>. Maybe this is causing a problem? Idk.

    No I don't think that is the problem. Can anyone else help me out?

    of course you get a black screen when you delete LockBackground.png

    As far as i know, there is no real trick to this one, multibar has nothing to do with it.

    just put a 320x480 LockBackground.png in the root of your theme and respring

    should be all set

    Well, other themes have this as well. This is what I do.
    1. Download/install iFile, then run it.
    2. Navigate to /var/mobile/Library and locate LockBackground.jpg (this should be your wallpaper).
    3. Press 'Edit' on the top right, select LockBackground.jpg.
    4. Press the bottom right button (looks like a rectangle with an arrow) and press 'Copy/Link'.
    5. Navigate to /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/(Your theme) and locate that theme's wallpaper image.
    6. Press the bottom right button again and press 'Create Link'.
    7. The linked file should be in blue, rename it to the exact same name as the theme's wallpaper file (so if it's called LockscreenBackground.png, rename it to that including the extension (.png)).
    8. Navigate back to /var/mobile/Library and delete the LockBackground.jpg.
    9. Set a new wallpaper from your Photos app and it should be good.

    Yeah I was wrong about the jpg thing. But I've tried ChrisL's suggestion before, and it doesn't seem to work with MultiBarLockscreen or Lock Status or anything that overlays something on the lockscreen.

    I know there is a way, I had it back when I was on 2.2.1. But I recently upgraded to 3.2.1 and I forgot how I did it. :\
