I just figured this out, and it seems that many people want to get custom backgrounds on their iPod but they either don't or can't SSh/SFTP into it. Sorry if this is old news, but I figured this out myself and wanted to let everyone in on it. Requirements: -Jailbroken iPod Touch (I'm not sure about iPhone as I don't own one) Step1: Install SummerBoard 1: Go into installer>Install (at the bottom)>All packages 2: Once in all packages, scroll down to SummerBoard 3: Install SummerBoard Step2: Install a SummerBoard theme 1: Click the "Install" Button at the bottom of of the screen 2: Scroll down to where it says "Themes (SummerBoard) 3: Download any theme in there, it doesn't matter which one Step3: Changing the Theme 1: Goto your SpringBoard and you will now see "SMBPrefs" 2: Click that, and then hit Themes 3: Click on the theme you installed 4: Make sure the "Wallpaper" option is ON 5: Click "Restart SpringBoard" You will now see that you have a new background picture. You want to make this one your own, so we are now going to put your picture as your background Step4: Getting your background 1: Goto installer 2: Click uninstall 3: Find the theme that you installed 4: Uninstall your theme 5: Exit installer, and you will see that the picture you have set for the "Slide to unlock" screen is now your background! Step5: Using ANY photo on your ipod as a background!! 1: Simply goto Settings>General>Wallpaper 2: From there, you will see Apple wallpapers or if you have photos on your iPod, your photos. 3: Choose any picture form Apple, or any picture from your ipod, and set it as your wallpaper. 4: This will now make your background the picture that you selected! And voila! Custom background without a PC! Sorry this was such a long guide, I just tried to make it as simplified as possible. It works though, and its very easy, just a long tutorial lol. Have Fun!
