    Download ClockHide in Cydia to remove the stock clock from the lockscreen

    As for the default slider, there are about 25 threads strewn about in this forum about how to fix that. Google welllock@2x.png and you should find out how to fix that.

    Within the theme you're using there is probably a default wallpaper in there. You'd need to manually replace that one with the one you want, then respring.

    Look inside the theme for either wallpaper.png, lockbackground.png or background.png. Once you find it, simply replace it with one of your own wallpapers and name it accordingly, then respring.

    reinstall the theme and see what files it adds back that you deleted, it possible that theme is a html background thats just coded to the colour black and its not using a png at all

    Blink was written before Apple changed how wallpaper is handled. You need to add code to the HTML to make it work, not just add a picture to the theme folder.

    Check the homescreen thread. I went ahead and made the change; download link is there. It'll still need some changes for 4.3.3 images (I'm on 4.2.1), but the HTML should now work fine.

    To those who don't know why Blink's wallpaper is all wonky, it's because it was originally written before the advent of IOS4. The creator tied the wallpaper to whichever wallpaper you've set your iPhone/iTouch to use as a lockscreen wallpaper through Settings, but IOS4 changed the file names.

    Simply look for the following code in LockBackground.html:
    background:url('file:///private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg');

    And change it to:´
    background:url('Insert Name of File Here.extension-of-file');

    Then place that file in the root file of the Blink theme (i.e. same folder as LockBackground.html). If you ever run into LockScreens with black backgrounds like this, it's usually because of this very problem (especially since the creator of "Blink" has created several popular Lockscreens) so simply repeat the process for all of those as well.
