    I'm only asking because its never worked for me since evasion came out. It worked great on iOS 5.

    It wouldn't work even when it was installed with lockscreen that required it.

    I go settings/ wallpaper and select a wallpaper, then select it for the lockscreen, respring, bu nothing ever happens. I have tried this with so many lockscreens.

    Thanks.

    Yes it work great on IOS 6 and it's been updated. Maybe what happens is that you have a lock background.png set inside the LS code and that's why the LS only load that image.

    I believe this is part of the code that I need to manipulate.

    It allows you to change the lock screen wallpaper with out having to use ifile or SSh.

    You choose a wallpaper from your roll and respring then it will change it, but it hasn't worked for me once and I have had lots of lock screens.

    ah yes i knew this.


    i just didnt know people changed their wallpaper in a given theme that often to care as much.

    i was under the impression there was something else involved since the package doesn't advertise this feature.

    HTML Lockscreens typically include a wallpaper that is hard coded in. If you want to use your own image you need to manually edit the html file to point to your own personal wallpaper, or rename your wallpaper and place it into the theme folder.

    JPEGifier helps simplify all that. What it does is when you set your wallpaper in settings app, it copies this personal wallpaper image to a set directory and renames it. Now in your HTML lockscreen you can update the code that points to the lockscreen background to this folder and filename. So you can keep changing the LS wallpaper but don't have to continually update the HTML LS or copy the file to the theme folder. It essentially does it for you everytime you set it in settings app.

    With that said, in order for all this to work you need to edit your HTML lockscreen and change the background from "whatever.png;" to "/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-LockBackground.jpg". Now whenever you set your lockscreen wallpaper in settings app and respring it will show up.

    Thank you so much for this post. I was able to make it work. Great info.

    to "/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-LockBackground.jpg. This is what helped me out. I placed it in the proper area of my HTML file and poof I'm all good. Thanks again.
