I'm busy knocking up a new QVGA landscape homescreen for the Samsung i600 and am having problems with the homescreen background image.
I've created my nice new background image at 320 x 240, saved it as a jpeg and copied it across to the home directory. If I then simply change the background image only and return to the homescreen, all I see is my image flickering badly with a white strip at the top where the icon bar should be for signal strength, battery etc.
This happens regardless of what xml layout I choose and also occurs if I resize the image smaller to accomodate the status bar. In other words, whenever I choose that background (it's the Vista grass one), the i600 has a fit. Furthermore, for some strange reason, the included i600 background images by Samsung (e.g. sandglass.jpg) are not recognised as Jpeg's in PaintShop Pro, Adobe or indeed anything else!
Can anyone shed any light as to why the screen flickers like a bad 50's B movie if I change it to my new background? Any idea what the white strip at the top is? Is a 320 x 240 jpeg the correct size and format to use?
Many thanks in advance.
