    I have been enjoying the various threads related to ios 4 wallpaper and I have a simple question to ask: how does one change the wallpaper to one of these custom images? I have looked at DiskAid and iPhone Explorer so far, and neither seems to point towards the wallpaper folder. Any help will be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

    To use application's like iPhoneExplorer (or just to access the file directory of iOS), you must jailbreak.

    I didn't realize that either. Thank you very much for the help!

    I think I'm just going to enjoy the wallpaper Apple provided.

    I'm confused by the previous answers, but to set your own wallpaper all you have to do is save the pic to your iphone, then you look for the picture in your phone, click on the square with the arrow pointing to the right ( the first icon at the bottom ) and chose Use as Wallpaper, from there you can use it for your lock screen or home screen or both...

    Not sure if that is what the op is looking for...:confused:

    In your signature, you say you have an iPhone 3GS, so follow the steps below to get a wallpaper.

    You can only do that if you have an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPod touch 3rd generation. Any other models do not support it.
