    SSH in and delete /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg and then take a chill pill and calm the hell down.

    Not that it really matters, but why not just do the following instead of deleting it?
    Code:
    chmod 777 /var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
    
    Something changes the permissions to 600, but I've never had a problem again after setting permissions to 777.
