    Hey everyone,
    I upgraded my jailbroken (not unlocked) 1.1.4 iPhone to 2.0 this morning. Besides the slow-as-glaciers syncs and buggy apps that constantly crash (Google, I'm looking at you), I encountered another problem: I can't change my wallpaper. I've tried practically everything in the Wallpaper folder and my photo albums and it's stuck on one. Does anyone have any idea as to what's wrong or what I should do?

    no idea, but I did just try to change my wall paper and it worked just fine. But I did not upgrade from unlocked.

    I'm trying to find out a little more about this bug that I've seen mentioned in a few threads.

    Is anyone who didn't upgrade from a JAILBROKEN iPhone having this problem? Is anyone who upgraded an iPod touch having this problem?

    I change mine constantly with no problems, but my iphone hasn't been hacked since 1.1.4.....not to mention my carrier logo still says my name that is the only hack that stayed after 3 restores and the upgrade to 2.0.

    I also recently upgraded to 2.0, but in my ipod touch, 16gb. After i jailbreak, i loaded my backup from itunes, wich actually, put the same background I had in the lock screen before. Now i cant change it. Ive tried changing it for images downloaded from safari and images i got in sync, but i cant change it. I believe it can be related to permissions? as it did with the mail application, that actually did not work when i updated to 2.0. (had to change the permissions in order for it to work)

    I hope this info might help, i dont like my current background :p

    you are not the only one... a friend of mine came to me with the same problem since i jailbreaked her phone for her... she upgraded to 2.0 and has the same issue... so do you solve it?? simply a restore? or do you have to get rid of files somewhere else?

    I upgraded to the official 2.0 for the first gen iPhones, and instead of restoring from a backup, I just created a new phone and that solved the problem. I know it's a hassle, but you all could try restoring and creating a new phone?

    I have the same problem. Jailbroke 1.1.4, upgraded to actual 2.0 and can't change it. Anyone find a fix besides starting fresh?

    Ahhhh, I was hoping this was not the way to fix it. Its a bummer to have to install all over again. what about through SFTP?

    i know this is an old thread but I finally solved the problem on my phone and figured I would share. Just SSH into /private/var/mobile/Library and in there you will find a LockBackground.jpg file, I just deleted it and now I can change my wallpaper again.
