    Hi,

    I hope I'm in the correct section for this little How-To.
    After I was able to jailbreak my iPad 3 I tried to find a way to change my wallpaper random after a specified time.
    I already known that there is a way to do this with a little Winterboard Theme. I used this method but the result was not so exiting (no retina wallpaper), so I tried to fix it and after a few tries I found a solution which works.
    This method should also work with other devises with little adjustments.

    What do you need:
    - Jailbreak iPad (3)
    - Winterboard installed

    What do you need to do:
    1. Create a folder with a name you can chose and has the ending ".theme"

    2. In this folder create a folder "img"

    3. In the folder "img" you have to put all wallpaper you want.
    - They should have the resolution 1536x2048
    - They have to be PNG-Pictures
    - They have to be nummered from 1 to ...
    - The picture label has to look like "12@2x.png" (The "@2x" is important.)

    4. Into the ".theme"-folder you put a file called "Wallpaper.html" (It has to be exactly this name)
    The content of this file is:
    Code:
    <html><head><meta HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="1800"; URL=Wallpaper.html">
    </head><body style="
        padding: 0;
        margin: 0;
    ">
    
    ********>
    
    var winid = Math.round((Math.random() * (999)));
    document.write("<IMG SRC='img/"+winid+"@2x.png' border=0 width=768 height=1024>");
    
    </script>
    
    </body></html>
    • The "************>" have to be replaced with "********"
    • The "1800" at the first line are secound after that a ne wallpaper will placed.
    • The "999" in the middle are the max number of pictures you have.

    5. When ".theme" folder is done you have to put it on your devise in "/Library/Themes/". There sould be a few other theme-folders.

    6. After you have done this, go into Winterboard and activate this theme. In Winterboard the "SummerBoard Mode" has to be disabled.

    What does this theme do
    The "Wallpaper.html" simply create a random value and use this value to chose the picture.

    What to note

    • The Wallpaper does not rotate. I haven't a way to do this. Because of this the wallpaper has to have the resolution 1526x2048.
