    pics? Hopefully this will make sense. I have User Background and User Lock Screen set in Winterboard. But the way to set these is to set the wallpaper in Apple Settings right? So I can't figure out how to make these different pictures :( There's probably a simple explanation that I'm not figuring out so please enlighten me! :p

    Are you asking how to have a different background/wallpaper for lockscreen ??

    When you apply a wallpaper, it shows up on lockscreen page. If you have some other lockscreen theme running, it can override the wallpaper you chose.

    Really not sure exactly what your issue is.

    I have a theme running on my lockscreen page and a wallpaper behind the theme. I set the wallpaper in Settings, but theme is SSH'ed into themes folder.

    I'm not explaining it right sorry. Let me try to clarify using the specific examples. I have 2 pictures- A and B. I want to use picture A as the wallpaper on my lockscreen and B as the "wallpaper" on my homescreen when the iphone is on. In Winterboard, I have selected User Background and User Lockscreen. But in order for Winterboard to select which User Pictures it uses for each of these, I have to select it in the native Apple settings>Wallpaper> select the picture. When I do that, I can't differentiate between one picture going to Lockscreen and one going to background/homescreen. Does that make more sense? Thank you! :)

    I did this waaaay back in the Summerboard days but I forgot the proper steps in getting two wallpapers working. If someone can clear this up for Winterboard, that'd be great.

    Lol I understood you from your first post. It's funny though when I ask people the same thing, they give me a confused look.

    Someone has to know how to do this with Winterboard.

    The wallpaper for lockscreen can be selected via settings/wallpaper.

    I have never used "User Background" or "User Lockscreen" and am not familiar with what they can and cannot do. According to what I just read, User Lock Background will put a wallpaper on apps pages and User Lockscreen a wallpaper on Lockscreen, so it should work, but I have no idea the method you use to select the separate wallpapers.

    Or you can use a theme and you can drop the selected wallpaper via SSH into the folder the theme is in.

    Thread on doing what you are asking ----> Hope it helps
