    I actually have a rotating wallpaper, apparently the code is not too hard, but i havent done Java code in years, so ive gotten a little rusty. You can download the "Apple Backgrounds" theme from Cydia though- it has 11 images in it, which you can switch with your own pictures, as long as they are all JPEG (not PNG). Then you can just edit the HTML file in Notepad to change the time lapse as long as you save it as an HTML.

    Also if you want another theme to look at as a point of reference, check out the 'Illuminated' theme, also in Cydia- its amazing and changes wallpapers every 4 hours, maybe 6 hours... im not sure but you can look at the code for that theme as well.

    here's the link to the tutorial i found... very well written, as far as im concerned- the only difference was that i was using WinSCP instead of Fugou, but "to each his own."

    hope this helps, message if you have questions
