I have almost everything back now... still have the phone icon issue... and for the life of me, I can't manage to get LockInfo back with a custom background... (maybe I never did, could just be losing it! )
Gonna go search for a "how to"... *sigh*
Boy, this modding is fun!

Transparent Folders(Maybe I'll see if someone wants to host it on Cydia?)
Instead of copying the info I'll link to the info about changing the folder and folder background here.
You'll need the original folder icon or you can use the one from whatever theme you have if it has one. Then open it in an image editor I use Photoshop but I've heard GIMP is a free alternative. The folder icon is called FolderIconBG~iphone.png then you can select everything within the silver ring in photoshop you can use the magic wand it's very easy. Then use the Background eraser and clear just one spot once you do that hitting delete will clear everything within the selection leaving it transparent. If you don't use the background eraser it will just erase to white leaving a white background. Once you've got it the way you want save it and apply your theme. If any of you want it since I've already altered it shoot me a PM or email.

Ok, Ipheuria and BLiNK... this is getting stupid AND more frustrating... I have everything the way I want it now... but everything is in separate themes... it works perfectly (?) that way... but as soon as I try to combine anything, it all goes south...
I'm going to leave it alone for a bit and come back to it... maybe I can figure out how to make it work together... but maybe the "modular" approach isn't so bad, after all.
In Winterboard, top to bottom here's what I have:
biteSMS BlackRetina 1.1 theme
Hank HD (Ipheuria's custom icons, renamed)
Blue Apple Clean (the theme that caused all the problems)
Clear Native Folders without Shadow Theme (referenced recently by BLiNK, and others)
And I DO APPRECIATE the assistance from both of these cool guys...

maybe its the icons that are in separate folders throwing it off..
i have separate folders to collectively tweak my set up the way it is but all of my custom icons are in one folder
is the Blue Apple Clean used for the wallpaper exclusively?

In at least one case, the icons are referenced by different names... the base theme (and the info from SBSettings' App Folder list) calls it Settings (but the path says "Preferences"), the icons from Ipheuria calls it Preferences... that's the messy part... and no matter what I do, I cannot get the "phone" icon to work if I try to put it in the theme...
Oh, well... I have learned a lot about how the "innerds" of this iPhone beast works... so it's not all for naught.
It also looks like I got it all done just in time for the GA release of iOS 4.3... nothing there that I need bad enough to give up all that I have done here tho

I've tried a few Cydia apps, but none of the ones that work with my iPhone 4 (4.2.6) have a blue background or frame. I don't care about how the folder looks when it's opened, I want to tweak the image of the folder on my screen.
I've attached screenshots of of what I'd like to achieve (circled in red), how my current folders look, and the iFile list of icons related to OverBoard (the icon I have circled in red on the other screenshot). I was wondering if one of those might be related to the actual icon colorization so I could just copy it to my other folders.
I haven't done anything with iFile yet---I've gotten the hang of using Cydia and Winterboard, but I haven't had the need to use iFile...until now.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Update to my message above.
I followed your instructions to other posters and your link to hackthatphone, and I was able to change the background to my folder icons! Thank you so much.
All I had to do was edit one of the folder-icon backgrounds that I had downloaded from Cydia but that didn't work. I found the correct files iFile and simply added ~iphone to the file string. Voile, it worked!
Thank you so much for all that you contribute to the TiPb community, it's truly appreciated.
