    I just restored my phone, and I still have the same picture as my wallpaper. I even deleted the pic off my phone.

    I choose another one to put as the wallpaper, but it still won't change.
    Should I just restore it as a new phone, not using my backup?

    The same problem 100%, what i had to do was start over and when i restored the phone you MUST make sure you do it as a NEW PHONE.. You have a CORRUPT picture and if you use the restore that you backed up with you will have the same problem..

    Fixed it, jsut back up all your pictures/contacts outside of itunes. Then goto restore but dont load any restore file. And sync everything over again but DONT sync the picture that wont come off the background.

    This worked for me.. but now i lost all my apps since i downloaded them from the phone..any way to get them back besides one by one?

    I had the same problem this morning and it was really annoying me. I did alittle searching on Google and found the answer to the problem. You need to SSH into your phone and do as follows: ---->

    * SSH into your iPhone or iPod with your normal programm that you use.
    * Navigate to /private/var/mobile/library and delete the file named "LockBackground.jpg". Delete the file.
    * Then goto Settings>General>Wallpaper and select your desired wallpaper.

    This worked fine for me and now i can change my wallpaper!!

    This was a big issue with Customize. It would lock your wallpaper. best solution as described is simply SSH in and delete that lockedwallpaper file.

    I eventually took customize off my phone. Its c**p, it changed all my default icons as well to something else. Stick with Winterboard for the icon changes.

    to SSH into your phone. you need a Wifi connection.
    First. download a program like (FUGU for Mac) or Iphone Browser for windows. Then, go on your iphone into settings>wifi>and then click the little arrow, and it will show you your IP address that your iphone is using on wifi...

    Then go into FUGU and in the box that says Connect to: enter root@(your IP address) Example : root@111.111.111 and then for directory, put 22.

    Then click connect, it will then ask for a password. the default is: alpine, however make sure you later change this.

    It will then log into your iphones file system. and then follow the previous instructions on finding the file and deleting it. if you need more help, IM me on AIM : xxblazin28xx

    Have you ever changed your password? The defaults are what I put on that post, however, There is another default password, I dont remember it off the top of my head, but its been posted on here. At worst case, goto www.modmyifone.com and do a search there. That is a site similar to this with alot of information on the iPhone and iTouch.

    Just in case someone else is experiencing problems with a wallpaper/lock-screen-background he can't change:

    try to set the permissions for the file /var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg to 777 (to allow "programs" to delete/replace/overwrite the file)

    I had the same problem and after re-setting the permissions to 777 I can change the wallpaper again.
