    all this is technically is replacing an icon with a giant template that you put your abckgrounds onto(see screenshot)

    START: You will first need to download a cydia app that you dont need to use, and that shows up as an icon( i recommend iReboot ). THIS ICON WILL NEED TO BE IN THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER OF THE FIRST PAGE THIS TEMPLATE TO WORK.

    Left Corner:

    after downloading this app you will need to use this template(below i counldnt find a way to host it other then image shack, so you will have to click and make sure to enlarge before saving.) to make your wallpaper. any background from summer board will work just resize it to 325x399 pixles in photoshop. my template has the "shelves" background just to show your where it goes. (BACKGROUND WILL ONLY APPEAR FOR 3 PAGES)

    Template:http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/3386/wholetemplatein7.png

    here is a screen shot of the action, the template is VERY big it needs to be to have your backgrounds show up right.

    ENDING: right so after to open the tempalte and drag your 325x399 background into the 3 spots, save it as a png. name it what you want, but it will need to be names "icon.png" to replace the one in the application.

    open up winscp and turn ssh on iphone on.

    go to like /private/var/stash/Applications.i8kacE or through the top you can go straight to applications.

    open your useless cydia app(iReboot in my case)

    then drag your new background named "icon.png" into the desired apps folder. you will want to overwrite and replace.

    whalla respring and you have iphone with background.(but wait i have no icons) hold a button on the dock until things start shaking then push where the icons are supposed to be and they will pop back through. There is an invisible app where your useless cydia one was, it still works.



    special thanks to the template modder steven(scgolfer7) and the starter(not sure who dont remember)


    if you have any questions or comments email me at treblruh@gmail.com ill try to help when i have time.
