Before my iTouch(3rd Gen, 8GB, MC Model) was updated, i can use winterboard to customize my wallpaper in the homepage and themes, I can also use MakeItMine to change the carrier or id "iPod" thingy at the left most. Now that i have jailbroken my iTouch into 4.2.1 using GreenPoison RC5, MakeItMine wont install and Winterboard's User Wallpaper wont work. Does Winterboard doesnt work at all in 4.2.1? Can someone suggest some new app in Cydia that do the same? Thanks!

MakeItMine is well known not to work on 4.2.1. I understand the Cydia program iName can change the carrier name in 4.2.1 on iPods. There is also something new called StatusNamer. Not sure about Winterboard, I don't use it much (something else I use installed it). I don't know what the difference is between "Winterboard's User Wallpaper" and 4.x natively supported wallpaper.

Not on 3G iPods. Use BossPaper or Winterboard themes with built-in wallpapers to have them. Use iName for carrier changes on 4.2.1 and ChangeCarrier on iPads.

What is "not on 3G iPods"? I have a 3G iPod running 4.1, and I can use any picture I want for wallpaper, and I have "User Wallpaper" turned off in Winterboard. Do wallpapers not work on 3G iPods in 4.2.1?

you can use "Fake Carrier" when using 4.2.1 to change the name of your idevice

The blurb for FakeCarrier says "iPhone 3 required".

just installed FakeCarrier on iOS 4.2.1 on my iPhone4. Makeitmine sure doesn't work, but really glad this does.
