    So I upgraded to 1.1.4 recently... and just before I did this, I had installed the Wallpaper application. I had added about 11 Wallpapers to my gallery, and they were showing up just fine, before. However, when I upgraded I think the original list stayed the same... and somehow the linking got all messed up. Now my Wallpapers have 11 blank spots at the bottom, and I can't add new wallpapers with the app

    If anyone knows where this linking happens, or has a suggestion about what I could try to fix this, I would greatly appreciate it!
    Things I've tried:
    I restarted (of course)
    I uninstalled and reinstalled the Wallpaper application and added new Walls to the gallery (Note, it can set a wallpaper to be the main one, but I can't find where it actually exists on my ipod... and it can't remember more than one)
    I copied the original Wallpaper library folder (which contained the 11 walls)

    Thank you so much in advance!

    First of all, thank you both for your responses!

    ^Yes, I put the folder containing all 11 wallpapers right there... I know that path was done correctly. But for some reason the application couldn't see them. I even deleted that folder and added a new wall to the gallery, hoping that it would create the folder in the correct location, but it didn't. I also tried leaving the folder but deleting the contents and adding a new wall, but it still didn't pop up in the correct place.

    ^^I will restore if I have to, but I'm a little concerned that somehow this problem persisted through my last restore. That is, when I did the restore, my ipod wasn't really wiped at all. This linking issue carried over immediately, even on the fresh, new restore. As soon as I looked at my wallpapers, the 11 empty slots were already there.

    I think that this is because of how I relocated my Applications folder. For some reason, BossTool wouldn't do the relocate for me, so I did it manually on the WinSCP command prompt. I think I stuck it in the wrong directory, though... which may be the source of my issues. I put it into private/var/root instead of private/var.

    Well.. it updated to the most recent firmware and everything... but nothing was wiped. All of my wallpapers/music/pictures/apps were still there on my ipod... that's unusual, right?

    If you choose to "restore to a backup" in iTunes, post restore, certain things/settings will remain. For example my faketime text will remain if I resort to a backup in Itunes.
