Change iPhone home screen wallpaper to blank/black in iOS4

Having just updated my iPhone 3GS to iOS4, one of the new features is the ability to set a custom home screen wallpaper, problem is the upgrade defaults to setting the home screen wallpaper to the same as your lock screen wallpaper.

I might be alone on this one, but I really don’t want anything distracting behind all my iPhone app icons and Apple haven’t given you a way to revert back to a black wallpaper.

If you liked my no-nonsense solution, then check out Movie Box for no nonsense access to movies.
