    Just in case anybody needs this.

    Almost every lockscreen/homescreen widget we install will mostly had its own wallpaper. The only way to change it is to ifile the wallpaper.png file in the theme. Quite troublesome if you ask me.

    Wallpaper JPEGifier which can be downloaded from cydia makes it much easier to change the wallpaper anytime you want.

    Just download it from cydia, after that edit the html file for the theme for the image to point to /var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-LockBackground.jpg or HomeBackground.jpg

    Thereafter, choose a wallpaper in the settings, re-spring and volia, your wallpaper has been change! :)

    Quick and easy ever after!

    I second this. For anyone who changes wallpapers/themes frequently this is a must-have tweak. I've used it on both ios4 and ios5 and it works perfectly.

    You edit the html file that is located in the folder of your theme. so if the name of the theme was LS Red then you would go into /private/var/stash/Themes.xxxx/LS Red/xxx.html

    x's = different depending on iphone, lockscreen or homescreen widget.

    In there, you will find something like src=lockbackground.png or src=background.png or src=wallpaper.png...you get the idea. The name of the png will be whatever the name of the default wallpaper is in that same folder.

    You then edit the html file and replace the old png name with src="/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-HomeBackground.jpg" or
    src="/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/Converted-LockBackground.jpg", remember that this is case sensitive.

    Finally, once you are using the theme just change your wallpaper through the settings app. Respring and the changes should have taken place.

    This works great for themes but the problem I have run into is that the widget I use on my springboard has a set background and I will be damned if I can find where to change the code where it is pulling the image from :( Same problem with my lockscreen. No matter what file I go into, I can't find and text that points to a certain image. I know it has to be there somewhere. For now I have been manually dropping in my wallpapers to the widget and lockscreen folders.

    If you want to upload it here, I'll take a look! Now that I did mine, I know what to look for. I'm sure other people wouldn't mind either :)

    I know this is an old thread, but just so I understand it correctly: These src lines are to make any given theme use your wallpaper, correct?

    Anyway to get themes to use their own wallpaper for the wall that splits when you open up a folder?

    Basically, it would require the theme to place it's own wallpaper over /var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/HomeBackground.cpbitmap (the unreadable file the OS makes of your wallpaper to split when you open a folder.

    What would I need to for mine? This is what contains in my HTML file.


    #Layer { width: 320px; height: 480px; position: absolute; top: 0px; right: 0px; down: 0px; left: 0px;}


    <div id="Layer"><img src="Layer.png" class="stretch"/></div>

    I have the Layer.png in same folder as HTML

    I understand this is an old thread, but maybe someone can lend a hand? I'm confused as to whether I'm supposed to make changes from my computer? Or is it something I can just do from my phone? I know I must sound like an idiot but try not to go too hard on me?

    You can do it from your phone with iFile.
