Feb 21, 2011 by

http://img822.imageshack.us/img822/9060/210211111539.pngFolderEnhancer is a very useful tweak available on Cydia that enhances iOS 4 folders on your SpringBoard — and it comes with a cool feature no one uses — custom folder backgrounds.

This video tutorial shows you how to do that:

What do you need?

  • iFile
  • Winterboard
  • A jailbroken iDevice
  • FolderEnhancer
  • MobileSubstrate

Steps:

  1. Find a picture you like and email it to yourself.
  2. Save the picture again. This is so that you can easily find it in iFile.
  3. Go to iFile and navigate to /var/mobile/Media/DCIM. Find the folder that is higher (for example, if you have 100APPLE and 101APPLE, navigate to 101APPLE).
  4. Copy the last picture in the list.
  5. Navigate to /Library/Themes and create a folder. Name it Anything.theme.
  6. Inside your new theme folder, create a folder called Bundles.
  7. Inside Bundles, create a folder called com.apple.springboard.
  8. Inside com.apple.springboard, paste the file. Name it as follows:
    • If you’re on an iPod touch 2, iPod touch 3, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS: FEFolderBG.png (320×480).
    • If you’re on an iPod touch 4, iPhone 4: [email protected] (640×960).
    • If you’re on an iPad: FEFolderBG~ipad.png (1024×1024).
      • FEFolderBG-Portrait~ipad.png (768×1024).
      • FEFolderBG-Landscape~ipad.png (768×1024).
    • iPad alternatives:

    • Go to Winterboard.
    • Activate your theme and respring. Enjoy!
