Enable Homescreen Wallpaper in iPhone Simulator OS 4.0 beta 1

Edit this file (you need root access


and add the key as below
"homescreen-wallpaper" = 1;

The default HomeBackground.jpg and LockBackground.jpg are here
/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.0/Library/SpringBoard/

As a bonus, if you add this homescreen-wallpaper key-pair, the problem of "iPhone simulator goes black when trying to taking app to background" problem will be solved.

Hi, interesting information here.
Unfortunately it does work on the 4.0 simulator but not on the successive versions.
I'm trying to enable the home screen background in the 4.3.2 simulator.
The homescreen-wallpaper is set to true, but the two background images cannot be found under the path /Users/myuser/Library/Application\ Support/iPhone\ Simulator/4.3.2/Library/SpringBoard

If I copy them from the corresponding 4.0 folder every time I restart the 4.3.2 simulator they are automatically deleted.
Any suggestion?

Thanx in advance
