    I have a 2g 8gb iPod Touch running firmware 3.0.

    I recently installed Winterboard and tried installing some themes and everything works except the springboard wallpaper. I've tried several different themes that use both Wallpaper.html and Wallpaper.png images but none of them show. The rest of the theme, including lockscreen wallpaper works fine.

    I've searched around and tried the methods suggested, like the removing the lockbackground.jpg method but it's still not working.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    in the winterboard list have you tried to toggle the state of the "User Wallpaper" theme?

    Yeah, it's a capital W.

    Doesn't selecting the wallpaper from Settings->Wallpaper just change the lockscreen wallpaper? It doesn't affect the springboard wallpaper does it?

    I found out that one of the components that Winterboard uses was out of date. So I updated it through Cydia and now it works fine.

    Thanks for all the help though.
