    Hi everyone,
    i just purchased an update (to 2.0.1) for my ipod touch.
    I've found the wallpaper doesn't work.
    whatever i set, the wallpaper doesn't appear and still black background.

    are anyone experience this situation and any suggestion?
    thanks

    Same Trouble

    I'm having the same trouble but I know a bit more about my problem than the first fella did. i had used customize to change my wallpaper and i read on some forum that the explanation for my springboard still being black even if i was setting a new wallpaper in customize was because i needed to delete some .jpg that was the homescreen. i went into my touch with ifinder and deleted the pic and watdyakno it worked but now that i have restored my ipod and updated to 2.0 it's not allowing me to change my lock screen wallpaper. really not sure what to do.

    SSH in and delete /User/Library/LockBackground.jpg or /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg.
