    So I messed around with Typophone 4 today at work and I got it working on iOS 4.2.1 and now it doesn't blink 88:88 every second

    The fix was quite easy and I'll post a walkthrough vid below for those who want to watch it

    SSH into your iPhone (or use iFile as I did in work) and navigate to /private/var/stash/themes/typophone 4.theme

    Open up Style.css and find the following line

    image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg')

    edit it so it reads

    image:url('LockBackground.png')

    NOTE THE EXTENSION CHANGE

    Respring and viola it should work

    To change your background then name the image of your choosing as "LockBackground.png" and drag into the typophone 4.theme folder and it will replace the black background and take effect after a respring

    EDIT:

    To change your background using the normal method then do the following

    change - image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg') to image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackgroundThumbnail.jpg')

    Now whenever you change your lockbackground in a normal fashion, just respring/reboot and viola!

    HOWEVER this will be a much lower resolution wallpaper because you are using a thumbnail image. iPhone 4/iPod Touch 4G owners will notice this more than others

    In your post you have

    image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg')

    but in the style.css file it is shown as

    background-image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg');

    So do we also change background-image:url to image:url?

    Nope
    It should ready like something like this

    background-
    image:url('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg');

    Background will be in the line above if I'm correct
    The only bit you need to change is "('/private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/LockBackground.jpg');

    You don't need to touch anything else

    Are you getting a legit version of it? Sounds to me like a crack issue...

    This has not worked for me. Whether i set it to .jpg or .png I still get the flashing 8's.

    Alternate Solution:

    Change LockBackgroundThumbnail.jpg to a higher resolution image in var/mobile/Library/Springboard/ (also change it's reference in style.css)

    Don't know why the initial posted solution wasn't working for me bit this has solved the problem.

    Now to figure out why BestClearLockscreen has also failed. Any ideas?

    Followup:

    Using 'Typophone Weather' (available from Cydia) setting the background from the themes folder as .png works now. Maybe the version of Typophone I had became corrupted as I upgraded to 4.2.1 (as I didn't restore as new).

    I almost have Typophone working on 4.3.1 but the slider background is giving me trouble. I read PP's solution with move2unlock but that removes all the slider functions which I find undesirable. Is anyone aware of a workaround?

    Here's a pic of the issue:

    Transparent slider Background 4.3 on cydia works great. It will keep the arrow and the word 'unlock' on the screen, but get rid of the slider background.

    do you mind letting me know the exact filename in cydia for this? I've tried both "ios4 Transparent Slider" from ModMyi and "transparent Sliders" from BigBoss but still failed. Just in case if I've installed the wrong one :-)

    FOUND IT!! It's called "Transparent Slider Background iOS 4.3" :-)
