    I'm using typophone weather and ifile. Anyone know how or where to change the wallpaper? I don't know how to get the file info I need for the desired wallpaper, or where to put it once I find it.

    search on youtube very good guides on there, its pretty simple though just put the wallpaper of desire in the theme folder ssh/ifile and name it to lockbackground.png

    I found a few videos, but they all show to go to a folder that I don't have to copy the file name from. Under var/stash/library I don't have a lockbackground.png or jpg to copy from. Any help here?

    I also tried going to var/mobile/library/springboard but there is no lockbackground to select from other than a lockbackground.cpbitmap or lockbackgroundthumbnail.jpg. This is getting frustrating.

    there should be a file named something like "wallpaper.png" in it or something. replace the photo with something named the same thing

    I really appreciate you guys helping me out, but I need a little more specificity. I'm not having much luck searching google/youtube/forums for the answer on how to do this. Thanks.
