    I JB my iPhone5 with Evasion the day it came out. Everything worked fine.
    A few days ago I restored to update to 6.1.2 (sadly we use exchange at work...) and then JB my device once again with Evasi0n 1.4. All went well.

    Since then, when I go in Settings>Brightness&Wallpapers>Wallpapers, my screen is black and I can't use any wallpapers.

    I've done the usual, Respring, Reboot, etc. I have not installed any new tweaks that could cause this. I've been using the same I was using before I updated to 6.1.2.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    I do not use the stock wallpapers, but I am to on 6.1.2 and just checked the settings and it is blank.

    I think it's a restore issue and nothing to do with the jailbreak. When I restore from a backup it's like this regardless if jailbroken or not.

    Thank you! Here's what worked for me (though I had to remove 2 wallpapers from a JB theme to make it work)

    «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. »

    How do you save and respring? I bought ifile, and I follow the directions up until that point. Thanks

    You can substitute a respring with a reboot

    So there's no 'save' button in ifile. I just put the files into a new folder, reboot the phone, put them back in the original folder, and reboot again?
