    I jailbroke my iPod touch 2nd generation to get wallpapers on the home screen. However, because it's not Apple's implementation, the status bar does not become translucent, so I think it looks pretty bad.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the status bar translucent on the home screen - running iOS 4? Thanks.

    I'm not sure about your problem.. Prior updating to iOS4 i used Winterboard to add wallpapers and i never got any problems with the status bar. After updating to iOS4, i now have wallpapers by the native implementation which also works fine. Mind if i ask why wouldn't you use Apple's implementation if you're using iOS4 which supports it? (and it also saves more resources than using Winterboard)

    Because on a 2nd-generation iPod touch, wallpapers are not supported and using the Apple implementation by changing that one false to a true makes the device laggy.

    Besides, WinterBoard user wallpapers does not work on iOS 4 yet.

    I'm using an iPod touch 2G with official multitasking+wallpapers unlocked. I don't think there's an issue with it being laggy, at least it's better than when i used Winterboard (which i didn't know it doesn't work because this was the only reason i were using it ;))

    On mine, when opening and closing applications, there is a lag. Other than that, the device works fine. But that lag bothers me.

    Hmm i haven't noticed anything like that on my device.. So are you actually replacing the files yourself to get a wallpaper? If this is the case then i'm sorry but i can't really help.. Haven't messed that much with system files yet

    Ok - I guess I'll try Apple's way again.

    Yes, I'm changing the file directly for the wallpaper.

    UPDATE: Turns out I suck at modifying system files. I broke something and am restoring my iPod right now. After is syncs everything again, I'm going to re-jailbreak and try it again.
