    Please forgive me for a silly little question. I am new to all this jailbroken using your favorite wall paper. For example, I found this really cool theme in cydia called blue thunder, however, I would really like to use my own lock screen wallpaper rather than the one that is provided with this theme.

    I even winterboard > select themes and check user lock background and it still didn't work. My question is how do I set that up?

    get iFile in cydia, it lets you navigate your phone

    then go to var/stash/theme.xxxx

    in here you will see all your stored themes, find blue thunder and in that folder delete the wallpaper.png file this will let you use your own

    I am sorry to ask another silly question, but what do I need to do to get to var/stash/theme.xxxx?

    Ok, I figured it out...however, when I deleted the wallpaper.png file I still get that wallpaper (the one that came with the theme) as the set lock screen

    I noticed that in the var/stash/theme.xxxx there are other files such as wallpaper-alt1.png, wallpaper-alt2.png and wallpaper-alt3.png, Should I also delete these files too?

    After doing a reset on the iphone, it took away the background wallpaper. I didn't want the background wallpaper to be removed.

    I wanted to keep the theme along with the wallpaper, however, I wanted to use my own wall paper for the lock home screen

    So, how can I do this?

    how did you figure it out? I have a HTC theme where I want my own wallpaper on my lock screen.

    wow, thought this was a recent theme then I see 2011 as the year lol.
