    Would someone be willing to build me a simple widget that would overlay the attached .png on the springboard wallpaper?

    Thanks!

    I don't think that would solve your problem. The overlay widget would still cover your icons. Check your other thread. I've posted a solution there.

    Ok thanks. Although I don't think widgets are above icons? All the widgets I've used are covered by the icons nicely...

    Overlay widgets sit on top of everything.

    oh I see. What about a widget that only puts that image on top of the wallpaper and below the icons?

    I think that is possible.
    I'm not exactly sure how to create this; widget coding (html) is not my specialty. You may want to check one of the widget guides in the theming section. You might find what you are looking for there.

    Already checked. It's all info on weather widgets and complex crap.

    Hmmm...
    I think you can accomplish this with Wallpaper.html, but Wallpaper.html disables you from being able to change your wallpaper, unless you SSH into the them folder containing Wallpaper.html and replace it manually. So that is kind of self-defeating...

    That's pretty much what I do anyway. Find a good image and use iFile to replace it.

    Alright then, sounds like Wallpaper.html is your solution.
    I can cook one up for you, if you need it.

    EDIT: Finished!
    Just put your wallpaper in this folder. It needs to be named 'Wallpaper.png'
    Enjoy!
