What does this function do?
Sounds like this is from a slide-show screen but what would it do for a roSpringboardScreen?
What slideshow images, scaled to completely fill which screen? Is there some undocumented meta-magic (like background image) or?

Looks like a copy-paste error. SetDisplayMode changes the way the HDPosterUrl/SDPosterUrl is scaled when displayed in the upper left of the springboard.

Thanks, i tried and indeed seems to affect *PosterUrl only. No full screen anything anyway. Will add it to the ever-growing (and rarely shrinking) list of doc things to fix.
