    hi guys
    ive been tinkering around trying to make a moving background for my iphone. ive been using photoscape so make the animated gif. and ive made the images 320x480 pixles. ive copied the html stuff into the folder under images. then i go to iphone explorer and add it to my themes. it shows up in winterboard just fine. when i select it and respring all i get is a white background. can anyone help me out here? what have i done wrong. if u dont wanna post publicly please just pm me.
    thanks in advance guys.

    You can't use a gif for a background image.

    You will need one of those video wallpaper tweaks off Cydia to do what you want.

    With winterboard, it can be achieved.
