    So im using winterboard for a custom keyboard, wallpaper, and a few other things..My lock screen wallpaper and springboard wallpaper are the same thing as of now, when i activate 'User Wallpaper' in winterboard it uses my picture from the lock screen..how can i use two different wallpapers? is it possible? i dont know how to ssh or do any of that stuff with it, and i wont do it, dont wanna get into it..anything i can do to have different wallpapers? like one i have saved in the photo library or something..

    I downloaded TAlerts (Talking Alerts) but it doesnt work, i installed it and activated it in winterboard but it doesnt seem to work for me, anything??

    Thanksss!

    i had a few themes but i dont know how to only use the wallpaper from that specific theme without using the theme itself..but i dont want to use a themes wallpaper..i want to use my own..like a picture from the library or camera role or something, other than the one from my lock screen

    Make sure it has a higher priority than the other items you have active. It shouldn't matter, but it did for me. I eventually turned off Talking Alerts because it was simply annoying.

    I'd start with one of the themes that only does the wallpaper, like iHour or saurik's sample theme, and then modify the html code to only use one picture which you specify. It should be fairly straightforward.

    It's kind of hard to customize the iPhone exactly the way you want without knowing how to use SSH. It's really not that hard, if you have ever used an FTP program you can do SSH. Just make sure you backup any files before you replace them and it should be foolproof.

    Also, if you like Talking Alerts you should give Vicky Voice a try.

    SSH is pretty easy to figure out. It is pretty much like using the finder, unless you want to learn to use the terminal.

    Once you figure it out, use the iPhone Settings app to pick a lock wall, and then put the desktop wall that you want to use in the theme folder that you are using (SSH into /Library/Themes/THEME_NAME). Make sure that you uncheck the User Wallpaper in winterboard, as that will make both your walls the same.

    If you want to make sure it is working go to settings and sounds and drag the on and off sliders next email voicemail etc. and it will playback the sound that you are using.

    You need to do some reading.

    From your signature, I see that you are a Mac user. That's good. ;)

    Start here.

    While you're at that site, explore around. It really is quite good.

    I read that sites tutorial, pretty interesting, thanks..

    But that doesnt quite solve the problem..I ssh'd into the theme folder that I'm using and theres no Wallpaper.png file to replace with a specific one of my choice..Do I just add one anywhere? Not sure as to where I would put this file.

    EDIT: i got ittt! thanks a lot guys, you need to just throw the picture in the THEME folder, not in any specific folder under that. Thanks a lot for all your help again
