Figured out how to change the background in Ubuntu Touch. )

You just need to copy the appropriate picture to /home/phablet/Pictures/

Code:
#!/bin/bash
sudo echo
Sleep 1
ls /home/phablet/Pictures/
sleep 3
echo "Please enter a file from /home/phablet/Pictures for New Background:"
read filename
result=$filename
sudo cp /home/phablet/Pictures/$result /usr/share/unity8/graphics/tablet_background.jpg
sudo cp /home/phablet/Pictures/$result /usr/share/unity8/graphics/phone_background.jpg
echo "Ubuntu Touch will reboot in 3 seconds"
notify-send "Background Changed" "$result"
sleep 3
sudo reboot -p

This app will not work as of an update to unity8 and unity8-private from last night.

Will mess around and try to fix it.

With this update it'll read the Pictures folder so you don't have to remember the exact file name.

Update

Reads the Pictures folder. Modify it to any location you want.

Should notify you of what picture was selected before reboot.

Some large jpg files don't work. It's a hit and miss when looking for new backgrounds.
