    Hi all

    I don't often post as I can usually find the solution in this forum, but I've a problem that I can't find the solution to.

    I've a 3GS and just installed 4.2.1 via iTunes restore/option key facility not update, and then JB via GP, without any install problems. I've installed by settings/themes etc via pkgbackup but have problem with the lockscreen wallpaper, and the user wallpaper.

    The theme I've installed doesn't over-ride my initial user lockscreen (which is a picture I installed when I had the phone from the start. I can't find that picture anyway on the phone to delete it. I can change the lockscreen to any other originally supplied w/paper, but the theme lockscreen won't show. It worked ok before the 4.2.1 & GP JB.

    Next problem is that I set up the phone to have user wallpaper installed, but now the theme wallpaper correctly shows. However, if I group apps together, when I open the grouping the original user wallpaper now shows instead of retaining the theme wallpaper.

    Can anybody help, or direct me accordingly?

    I have iphone explore so can access the root files ok, although it doesn't show previews of .png files.

    Some of the file names and locations are different in 4.2.1.
    For example, I noticed some of the files I went looking for have " ~iphone " appended to their names. This will screw up a lot of themes so you'll have to adapt them yourself or wait for them to be updated.

    Thanks for that.

    I now remember reading somewhere about the ~ being added to files.

    I'll just have to wait until thats resolved.

    Solution to opening groups

    Yea I have that problem, too. But I know how to fix it.
    1. Hold an app so it starts to "wiggle"
    2. Drag that app to a new page, creating another page.
    3. Drag the app back and keep the apps wiggling
    4. Go back to the blank page and take a screenshot of it
    5. Set it for the background in options.

    when you take a picture, make sure the apps on the very bottom the "sock" I believe it's called, is clear too
