    For those that might be interested...

    I just replaced all the original wallpapers with my own. Just make your own 320x480 png images and number them 01.png, 02.png, 03.png, etc. Then make a thumbnail version that is 75x75 pixels and name it 01.thumbnail.png, 02.thumbnail.png, etc.

    Follow all the instructions for putting new Ringtones. While you are running iPhoneInterface:

    cd /Library/Wallpaper
    If you ls you'll see the stock ones. Oddly enough they skip some numbers
    I loaded 19 and removed the rest with the rmdir command (rmdir 22.png, rmdir 22.thumbnail.png)

    Remember to upload the Services.plist file before you exit.

    Edit: Okay, between my wife's unmodified iPhone and mine I have been able to list the wallpapers to allow some 'targeted' replacements. They are as follows:

    1 Water Lilly
    2 Earth
    3 Peacock Feather
    5 Dew Cover Leaf
    6 Birch Trees
    7 Frog
    8 Monarch Butterfly
    9 Stones
    10 White Flower
    11 Pink Flower
    13 Yellow Tulip
    14 Red Rose
    16 Mona Lisa
    17 Monet Painting (? Not sure it's a Monet...)
    18 Picnic Painting
    19 Fruit Painting
    20 Dots
    21 Tiles
    22 Wooden Figure

    Request for a stock wallpaper image


    I realize I'm bringing to life a thread from 2007.

    But my attempts in finding/searching for an older stock wallpaper image has led me to this [sort of relevant post] to make a request of someone with a JB iPhone 2G handy.

    In particular, I'm after Number 9 "Stones", if that's what it's called. This is a post I made in a Wallpaper thread in the iPhone main section, and has the sample image of what I'm looking for:

    Wallpaper from iPhone 2G request

    If this request requires a lot of time, please don't go to the hassle of digging it up; it's not that important. Additionally, I have no experience with JB'ing -- and what can/cannot be accomplished -- so I'm not sure if this request is even possible.

    Forums -- this is what makes 'em so great...

    I'd thank you with a handshake if I could; so here's a virtual one.

    Thanks much! :D
