    Can't change homescreen, all black

    I installed bosspaper then realized it only work on iPhones so I uninstalled it. But now I can't change the background on my homescreen, it's all black? Tried rebooting and still black, lock screen changes just fine. Not sure what else to try?

    Just saw this active thread...Would too many tweaks slow your iPAD

    L
    ook at the Mickey330, Supermoderator's response. It should be the last comment posted. Maybe this might help you, but now I am thinking not-since your screen is black.

    Have you tried to check the Jailbreak and Hack forum section? Or, tried to search your issue?

    And you have also performed a reset by pressing the home and power switch at the same time, without help?

    Thank you for helping
    I should have been more clear, my "wallpaper background" is black, all my apps are showing and the iPad works just fine. If input it into safemode everything is fine, I can change the background no problem

    Have you looked at Mickey330's comment yet, since you can see your icons?

    Maybe others will see your post. Also go to the jailbreak and hack section. Perhaps you may find additional help there. Good luck. If I come across anything more, I will post back.
