When i go to wallpaper settings and choose the still wallpapers there is nothing in there. All the default wallpapers are gone. Its just a white screen. I looked in the ifile and it has all the wallpaper in there.

Edit: Is there anyway i can add them back into the default apple wallpapers?

I had the same problem. Simpler fix I did was to 1.) use iFile to rename /var/stash/Wallpaper.xxxxx to /var/stash/Wallpaper.xxxxy. Just replace the last letter with a new one BUT remember to take note of it. You will need to put it back again later. 2.) After renaming, go to AppSwitcher and kill Settings app. 3.) Then open Settings and try to open the Still Wallpapers. If you got "You have no Photos/Videos" message, you're on the right track. 4.) Repeat Steps 1 - 3, but this time renaming it back to the original letter before you replaced. Let us know if it worked for you too.

I know this topic has long been resolved. But I have to say a big THANK YOU! This was driving me nuts. Unfortunately, these are the little quirks we have to put up with in order to break ourselves out of the maximum security prison known as iOS. sigh

I found out a solution. I end up restoring for no reason. I just found a solution 2 minutes ago too.

Navigate to where the guy said above. You should see 2 folders. I have an iPod touch, so my folder for wallpapers would be iPod. If you're not sure which one is right, just open the folder and preview the photos until you find the stock iOS 7 wallpapers. Once you have, go back to the folders, and either delete the folder that DOES NOT have the iOS 7 wallpapers, or move it to your documents folder. (Hit the home icon on the bottom and you'll see documents.)

Then kill settings, reopen it and it should be there.

Thank you for your answer but unfortunately I've only 1 folder in there and that is called iPhone, containing still photos. I'm not eager to delete this folder :)

Batu I can send you the "iPod" folder if you like.
