Change Folder Background?

Is there anyway to change the folder background via SSH? What directory would that be in?

Thanks,

You are better off using WinterBoard to do this, in my opinion.

Good advice. I replaced that file and ended up with my screen half covered in images. Fortunately, I had a backup plan.

Well, if you look at the default images, they are:
