    Hey guys,

    Forgive me if this has been discussed ad nauseum. I am a noob to the jb world. I have been researching for the past two hours with no specific answers. However, I have learned how to use cyberduck and ssh.

    Anyway, I have a zip file for a lockscreen I like. I know how to transfer it to my iphone with cyberduck. But, I must not be formatting it right because winterboard shows the theme, but when I activate it, it just goes right back to the normal apple lockscreen.

    Can anyone tell me:
    1. how to make sure it is in the right format.
    2. how to get it to my iphone in such a way that winterboard can instal it.

    Again, I'm sorry for the repetition, but I could really use a clear answer.

    Thank you!

    Ok, figured it out: What I've had to do is include my own LockBackground.html file (in my theme directory) that points to my LockBackground.png file (in my theme directory). Works like a charm:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="background">
    <img src="/Library/Themes/**YOUR THEME NAME**/LockBackground.png" width="320" height="480"></img>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    I didn't really understand that, but I have read more tutorials on this and it looks like I am doing everything right. Even the themes I put on my phone from cydia are coming up with question marks instead of images. The specific lockscreen I want is here...

    I unzip it...transfer it with ssh to the themes folder in my phone...load the hide the clock app...go into winterboard and select the lockscreen.....respring....and behold....nothing. All I see is the standard apple wallpaper
