  1. hey i downloaded winterboard and when ever I click on one of the themes and hit the home button it starts loading then locks and when I go back in its the same normal black background and screen. If I turn my ipod off I have to restore my ipod so I don’t know what to do. what should I do??

    • Turn your phone off by holding home and power button. Then it’s sure to work, I had the same problem, didn’t know i had to turn off my phone until I read this post.

  2. I ended up installing a couple of the wallpaper packages but ran into difficulties. After I switched back and forth a couple of times between images, the wallpaper defaulted to my original wallpaper image and wouldn’t change. The original image I had was a photo in my library, after deleting it and restarting the phone I now have a totally black wallpaper. Toggling the settings or the winterboard iOS 9.0.2 “User Wallpaper” option doesn’t do anything. However, applying a theme still changes the wallpaper behind the icons, but not my lock screen. Any suggestions?

    • I had similar troubles with an application called Customize. It seems like using apps to alter wallpapers (both lock screen and springboard) generally ends in something like this for some people. If you are looking for an application that is good with wallpapers, I suggest Kate/RiP Dev. You can get it from Cydia. It’s a very simple app that installs a section to the bottom of your settings and offers some pretty neat customizability. Hope this helps.
