Is there anyway to make the background of the theme, also the wallpaper for when the phone is locked? I just want to keep the background the same but can't seem to figure out if there is a way. Thanks for any info!

In summerboard turn theme wallpaper off and under advanced turn wallpaper on, try that and see if it works
Lol, it does the exact opposite of what I wanted to do! It makes my wallpaper the theme background, not the theme background the wallpaper. See I have a random pic of me as the wallpaper that I see when my phone is locked. I have the Time Machine Theme on my iPhone and I wanted to make THAT background the same for my wallpaper. Thanks for your idea though, that will come in use at some point and is a good FYI. Thanks again!

Oh, i thought you wanted to make your lock screen the wallpaper of your springboard. Well you can just sync that photo of you to your iphone and in Photos you can make it your lock screen wallpaper and that way it will be your theme background and your lock screen background...if thats whats you want im kind of confused lol

SSH to your phone, grab the wallpaper, put it in your /library/wallpaper folder as a PNG file (which it already should be) and have at it :) Just set it up as your wallpaper.

hello. I'm using a 1.1.1 iPhone, I know how to change my locked screen background. But I like to change the springboard background, I don't want any theme or custom icon, just don't want the background of the springboard to be black. Can i do that without install any apps? Can I just SSH to put a picture to the springboard folder to do it? Thanks a lot!
