Here’s How To Change iOS 5 Notification Center Background (Jailbreak Required)


So you installed iOS 5 on your iOS device and you’re enjoying using the new notification center in iOS 5 along with some awesome jailbreak widgets.. Now we’ll show you a small tip that will make the iOS 5 notification center even better. Below is a guide to change the background of your iOS 5 notification center to give it your own stylish background.

The instructions requires your device to be jailbroken on iOS 5. You’ll need Cydia to install some important utilities to get the steps working. You’ll also need an SSH client like WinSCP for Windows or Cyberduck for Mac OS X.

You’ll need a wallpaper to be set as the background of notification center, the wallpaper should be sized as 640 * 960 pixels, you can try Google Images to pick up a one.

How To Change iOS 5 Notification Center Background

STEP 1: Open up your iPhone and get into Cydia then search for OpenSSH and install it.

STEP 2: Once installed, get on your Wi-Fi from your iOS device to get the IP address of your network.

STEP 3: Now open the installed SSH client (in this guide we use WinSCP), and type down the following information:

Host name: <type the IP address of your network from the previous step>
Username: root
Password: alpine

eeeeeeeeeeeeeee

 

STEP 4: From WinSCP, open the below directory:

System/Library/CoreServices/Sprinboard.app

STEP 5: Scroll down in this directory till you find an image named BulletinListLinen.png or BulletinListLinen@2x.png. Now replace it with your favorite image that you want to be the background of your notification center. (P.S. the name of the image must be the same as found in the directory)

 

STEP 6: Now go to the following directory:

private/var/mobile/Library/Caches

STEP 7: Scroll down until you see a file called: com.apple.SpringBoard.notificationCenterLinen and delete it.

STEP 8: You’re almost done, all you need to do now is to give your device a respring (or reboot) and you’ll get it working.
