    Anyone know if there is an iPad theme or anything that will allow my lockscreen to change (say per hour, or per lock)? i heard there is a way on iphone but those photos arent sized correctly for the ipad.

    My iPhone sort of does this, but it changes by time and what type of weather it is locally. It's the HTC theme. You can easily modify the theme to display the wallpaper only, and just ssh your own personal .png image files. I'm sure there is way to modify the code to cycle through image files every hour. The only thing is the image probably won't rotate when in landscape or portrait on the iPad.

    So I went with this method and the one thing I have not been able to figure out (maybe a coder can help). The wallpapers are not centered at all. it will show the far left of the picture, even stack that picture on itself towards the bottom. Maybe I need to change the dimensions of each picture? Thoughts?

    here is the code that displays the wallpaper:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?><html><head>
    <script src="configuration.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	document.write('<style type="text/css">body{background: black url('+LOCK_WALLPATH+(((new Date()).getTime()%LOCK_WPNUM)+1)+'.'+LOCK_IMGTYPE+');}</style>');
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body></html>
