    I'm having a problem getting custom LockBackgrounds to show up. They're named correctly and dropped in the theme directory I select through Winterboard, but they do not show up. I keep getting the lockscreen I set through iOS4.

    If I load a custom theme with it's own lockscreen, I get nothing at all.

    Has iOS4 changed something that I'm missing?

    Pointers much appreciated. :confused:

    Note: I'm using iPhoneBrower to load my themes and also Cydia.

    Any chance you're on a 3G vs 3Gs, iP4? Wallpaper is diabled on the 3G. It can be added with IOS4 "Features" in Cydia...

    Yep, 3Gs bought just weeks before iP4 was released. I had it jailbroke back on iOS3, but just recently re-broke it on 4.2.1. Can't seem to get custom lockscreen backgrounds to show up for nothing (through custom themes via winterboard). (though I can set them manually through iOS4)

    Ok, figured it out: What I've had to do is include my own LockBackground.html file (in my theme directory) that points to my LockBackground.png file (in my theme directory). Works like a charm:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="background">
    <img src="/Library/Themes/**YOUR THEME NAME**/LockBackground.png" width="320" height="480"></img>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>
