    I have updated Saurik to take on any number of pictures, enjoy:

    1. Download Wallpaper.html of Saurik to your computer.
    2. Edit the body part as follows, that is after the <body> tag and before the </body> tag.
    3. Change the following code according to your taste:
    3.1 Number of pictures: add or drop lines with respect to <img> tags, the picture name does not matter, as long as a file with the same name is in the Private folder (same as Saurik); the id, however, has to be picX, where X goes from 1 to number of picture that you have.
    3.2 Change the loop condition. See where is says i > 5? change the number 5 to the number of pictures that you have, that number should match your biggest X in picX. In my original code, X = 5.
    4. That's it. Remember to make a copy in case something goes wrong! Enjoy.

    Note: You can copy just Wallpaper.html and the Private folder to another theme. Depending on the theme, you might need to change your image size to 320 x 460 as there is a 20px padding from the top (For Saurik, it's 320 x 422).

    HTML Code:
        <img src="pic1.jpg" id="pic1"/>
        <img src="pic2.jpg" id="pic2"/>
        <img src="pic3.jpg" id="pic3"/>
        <img src="pic4.jpg" id="pic4"/>
        <img src="pic5.jpg" id="pic5"/>
        
        <script>
            var i = 2;
            fade_in = pic1;
            fade_out = pic2;
    
            var fade = function () {
                fade_in.className = 'fade-out';
                fade_out.className = 'fade-in';
                
                eval('fade_in = pic' + i);
                
                i = i + 1;
                if (i > 5)
        		{
        			i = 1;
        		}
        		
                eval('fade_out = pic' + i);
                setTimeout(fade, 15000);
            };
    
            fade();
        </script>

    Pretty cool.

    Well thanks to Saurik and Winterboard, there is technically no longer a need for Intelli screen or another "Today" app as the wallpaper itself can now serve this purpose.
    All one needs to do is write an HTML file that polls info from various sources (weather, cal, etc) and display it right on the background.

    One could even write something to almost completely simulate the beautiful HTC style homescreen (rain wipers and all)

    the only thing that sucks is that you cant apply the wallpaper to another theme yet....
    I just noticed that. I found a cool pic and tried to apply it as my wallpaper and it didnt take.

    It seems to use the parts in order.

    If you want to have your lock wallpaper as your background make sure the User Wallpaper is at the top and the theme below.

    For instance

    User Wallpaer
    Transparent Icon Labels
    Illuminous <--- Theme

    Of course you need to have the check on both wallpaper and the theme.

    It certainly works for some themes but i couldnt guarantee all.

    Ahh, I was wondering what the deal was with the ordering. I was actually talking about changing my lock wallpaper in general. It wont change anymore. Your method does work for making the lock screen wallpaper work on the home screen. Thanks for that. I wish Winterboard was a little more user friendly like Summerboard. But nevertheless, it rocks.

    Oh I wish to have that beautiful dream come true

    So it looks like the exploit Intelliscreen uses was... accidentally found?

    Am I mistaken or is this a way to have a "gif" sort of wallpaper?

    Hey guys..this message is for those of you with problems on fw 2.0.1 but may apply to the rest of you as well. I'm pretty sure you need to make sure that you have not used Customize or anything on your Iphone before using winterboard or it doesn't work. I was using customize and installed winterboard and couldn't get anything to work..but after a clean restore I installed winterboard and it works perfect.
    Hum. I was using Customize on three different iPhones (2 - 2G and 1 -3G) and Winterboard worked right off.

    Was messing around today, and thought I'd try out the video wallpaper function. Works pretty nice for the first run of the video then the speed is all jacked up after that. It goes either real slow or super fast. Also went to go take a picture with the camera and the phone when all sluggy and when the camera finally opened it was a messed up split screen. Thinking the video takes up too much system resources? Anyone else have any problems?

    Video itself is always an issue in terms of running along something else due to the amount of resources required.
    You can try optimizing the video and remove sound to see if it handles better.

    I remember vWallpaper did this quite well but there were still issues at times.

    @iPhoneMadness
    It's not the way IntelliScreen works and I belive Sauriks way is more elegant IMO.

    I'm not all that great with HTML but I'm gonna give it a shot and see if I can produce a proof of concept at least.

    Could someone please help? I want to add custom Lock and Unlock sounds. I added a folder to my theme, UISounds, and placed my customs lock.caf and unlock.caf in that folder. I then open winterboard and select my theme, but the sounds don't change

    A temporary fix was I removed the default sounds and replaced them with my custom ones in the system/audio/UIsounds/. This worked, just not the way I wanted to do it. I'd like to take advatange of winterboard.

    Also, my theme is in
    private/var/mobile/Library/summerboard/themes/"my theme"

    This was a Summerboard theme I downloaded and am trying to customize.

    Should I move"my theme" to root/private/var/stash/themes folder?

    I understand how it works, with the heirarchy and all, but I still can't get a wallpaper from one theme and icons from another theme, anybody else?

    @jwfab1:
    I've been putting them in Library/Themes. Not sure about the other two paths.

    @nickswagger:
    Does your icon theme works with User Wallpaper? If it does, then simply make a copy of User Wallpaper and replace the image inside. The theme that you have for wallpaper might have something conflicting with your icon theme.

    ok so i'm trying to use winterboard to them tap tap revolution to look like guitar hero. having some problems...

    /private/var/stash/Themes.DC7Q8t/Guitar Hero III/Bundles/com.tapulous.TapTap

    thats my theme folder. it changes all the menues all the logos. but inside of tap tap revolution there is a second folder called Aweso.ttrTheme this has the images for the game its self. so i created a sub folder to mod those.

    /private/var/stash/Themes.DC7Q8t/Guitar Hero III/Bundles/com.tapulous.TapTap/Aweso.ttrTheme

    well that sub folder crashes the game every time its in the theme. any ideas?

    how do you change fonts using winterboard? is it possible without having to manually overwrite the library fonts?

    Well, i tried loading a custom font into my font cache folder and then putting the fontfamily name in my config but I got the spinning wheel at startup on my lock screen. SSH in and changed my plist back to helvetica and the phone booted up a minute later.

    I think people have the idea "change the font name in plist" but until I actually talk to someone who has successfully dropped a custom font into their phone and got it working with winterboard, I am not sure its possible.

    that or you have to modify the .plist cache file in your /fonts/cache/ folder, but I haven't tried yet, since I can't open that file until I get home on my mac (at the office = PC)

    Has anyone been able to change their lock-screen wallpaper from within their camera roll? Everytime I try to apply a new wallpaper it doesnt take.

    Currently it can only be done within WinterBoard by selecting "User Wallpaper" and moving it all the way up, before the theme.

    This will use you settings selected wallpaper as wallpaper but every time you change it, it requires a respring to take.

    SMB did all this a bit differently as an overlay and while it worked more seamless, it was harder on the system.
    Thats one of the reasons why with winterboard, ipod background doesn't show your wallpaper in certain parts but looks correct as intended.

    Also, if you are using Customize, there is a chance of the Customize wallpaper "sticking".

    If this is the case, delete "LockBackground,jpg" from var/mobile/library

    This will reset the wallpaper to the stock earth one and release the wallpaper from Customize.

    Good luck

    Thanks my friend. I'm not using Customize but deleting the LockBackground.jpg did the trick. You have been thanked!
