    If those images crash, they aren't mine. I'll post some of my own when I stop being lazy.

    Etc... You get the idea.

    To accomplish this.
    1. Navigate on your device to your favorite theme. ie /Library/Themes/MyFlyTheme
    2. Rename Wallpaper.png as Wallpaper.png.orig
    3. Create a new file called Wallpaper.html
    4. Open said document and paste this text into it
      HTML:
      <html>
      <body>
      <script type="text/javascript">
      <!--
      window.location = "http://www.digg.com/iphone"
      //-->
      </script>
      </body>
      </html>
      
    5. Fully respring. That is, sliding lock respring.

    To change to another page, simply change the link http://www.digg.com/iphone to any link you want. Please, be sure to put the link in quotes.

    Some pages work, some pages don't. You'll figure it out.


    EDIT: Credit goes to Optimo for pointing this out to me. I didn't know it was ready yet.

    EDIT 2: Some sites don't work quite as well: ex http://www.appleiphoneschool.com and http://iphone.facebook.com/

    I know, right now it's useless. But, just wait until someone creates a page that has the temperature, news, sports, whatever you want on it. All conveniently placed so as to be seen around your icons.

    just wondering, will this use up more of the iphone's battery ? i notice that when i wake up my phone, it's on a different photo than when i put it to sleep...i made my own theme of scrolling photos...just curious

    what if I made my own html of scrolling photos and hosted it on my own server and had the code from the first post point to that page. Would the iphone's processor still have to work harder to view the transistional pictures as my background ? I hope this makes sense ?

    but i will try and make a cool utility page. maybe the row inbetween the dock and the icons.
    What would you guys want on it?

    Wouldn't this drain the batter quite a bit?

    Just like vWallpaper
