    I know there are a lot of threads about trying to change the springboard wallpaper which, as far as i have seen, is not possible yet. But what is happening to me is my unlock screen wallpaper can't be changed. I go into settings, wallpaper and pick a new image but it doesn't change. If someone could help me out whether it be telling me how to ssh into it and changing it that way or if there is already another thread with answers to my question.

    I am on a mac, and i used pwnage to jailbreak my ipod touch on 2.0. Any info. is much appreciated

    SSH into your iPod and delete /private/var/mobile/Media/LockBackground.jpg

    It's not a folder, it's a file.

    Try /var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg, I can't remember which one it's in.

    Yep, after deleting it, it will change either when you put in a new LockBackground.jpg or you change it in Settings>General>Wallpaper.

    great it worked! thank you Gitykins for all your help. If there was still a rep system in place, i would add to yours. How about a fantasy +1000 rep?
