    Hello. For the last few days that I had my iPhone jailbroken, it was crashing a lot and just being annoying, so this morning I just decided to restore it to normal again. Yesterday, I had restored it, updated it to iOS 6.1.2, and re-jailbroke it with evasi0n 1.5 on my iMac. This morning, I let it sync one more time. Then, I chose restore iPhone, let it restore and all, then chose to restore the backup from the previous sync. I let everything re-sync and then it was back to normal. But, as I went to change the wallpaper in my system wallpapers, everything just appears black, and when you choose one of them, it just makes the wallpaper black. Using one on my camera roll works fine, but everything is just black on my system wallpapers. I've already tried restoring it again, I restored it as a new iPhone (the wallpapers worked then) and restored a backup to get everything back, but nothing has worked. This is really annoying, as I don't want anything bad to happen or anything to be wrong with my iPhone after it being jailbroken. Please, does anybody know of ANY ways or solutions whatsoever that could fix this issue, and just make my iPhone normal again? I'm willing to do anything. Thank you for your time and I hope somebody can help me!!!

    Mine went like that to, and with mine there was only ONE picture in total in there! no idea how it went like that, and I DFU restored....all OK now.

    DFU restore to factory, and DO NOT restore from ANY backups. You will have to install all your apps from scratch just like you got it from Apple.

    I'm sure there is an easier way, but I don't know what that is.

    Ok, to fix it easily use ifile.
    Go to var/stash/wallpaper/iPhone. All your stock wallpaper is there.
    Cut and copy all of the files to a new folder.
    Save and respring.
    Open ifile, go to the new folder, copy the files and move back to the original folder.
    Save and respring. All should be back to normal.
