    Is there an app that lets you change the background picture to a picture of your choice? I'm not talking about the wallpaper (the picture you see when your phone is locked) but rather the background picture in the main menu of the iPhone.

    There are preset backgrounds in Summerboard themes but no choice to put a custom picture of your choosing. Customize doesn't seem to have this either...

    Thanks in advance.

    I thought if you selected to override the theme wallpaper in Summerboard it'd just show your normal wallpaper behind your icons on the main menu. Has this changed since the last time I had it installed?

    Ah, I have to switch 'Theme Wallpaper' to off then it takes away the theme wallpaper (duh) to the one you chose for the lock screen. I'm guessing you can't have a different one for each (please correct me if there's another way). I guess this'll have to do.

    Thanks!

    There is not a way to change the wallpaper to be different at the springboard than it is at the lock screen unless you want to change the wallpaper in the theme folder to fit your needs.

    How can you do that?

    Log into your iPhone using SSH or something like it, and go into folder:

    /Library/Summerboard/Themes/Your_Theme_Folder

    and drop a new picture named "Wallpaper.png" into it, it will replace the theme wallpaper, so you'll need to turn that feature back on in SMBPrefs.
