Hi,

Am not able to change the wallpaper of my iPhone. This is what i did:

- i installed "customize" software and was trying to change some system strings
- later i also installed "summerboard" and was trying to get the wallpaper as the background and disabled theme background.

After this, i just tried to change the wallpaper and its not changing. Its the same which I had before I installed these software.

If someone is aware of this issue, please help.

But the person who helped me Jailbreak asked me not to reset at any point of time. He said if I do, then I might have to jailbreak again. Please advise.

He probably meant do not RESTORE. It's when you plug the iPhone into iTunes and select restore, essentially erasing everything from the iPhone. By resetting all settings the Jailbreak will remain intact.

I just called me to ask if I can reset. He says if I do so, I will loose all my contents, meaning - contacts, sms, etc.. is this true? because, I do not have any backups as of now.

No this is not true. He is misusing the word RESET and RESTORE.
It is fine to RESET.
RESET Also means pressing the home and sleep button, I'm Sure he does not have a problem with you doing that.

Your jailbreak WILL remain intact. Trust me.

Resetting will simply reset your ringtone setting, screen brightness, etc. No data will be lost, at all.

that won`t fix the problem, if you erase all data and content from your iPhone it will fix the problem, or maybe you can delete via ssh the wallpaper that customozie set-up, i personally had to do a restore

I'm now having the same problem, how was this fixed?
go to
> settings
> general
> select reset

by doing this you will NOT loose any of your data viz., contacts, music, video, photos...

try and let me know if it works...
