Custom app icon help
I attached a picture so you can see what I'm talking about.
I made a theme of my own with custom icons. There are 2 icons that have a black background, tweetbot and facebook. I'm not sure why, because they aren't supposed to. How do i get rid of it?
And secondly, in the dock is a transparent black background which also shouldn't be there. It is in phone, email, mail and music. How do i remove that one as well?

the dock icon shadows are there because you havent themed the dock, youve only themed the icons. the issue with tweetbot and facebook is that, that is the icon. whoever made those particular icons, made them with a background. youre going to need to edit the .png file of those two particular icons to get rid of the "perceived shadow". its actually a part of the icon.png.
i can tell this because the cydia icon has no shadow background, meaning the theme doesnt contain shadow backgrounds...
so two steps..
edit the tweetbot and facebook icon,
theme your dock. there are a few differnt option in cydia that will let you have a completely invisible dock...
if you still want the glass dock there you just need to remove that transparent one from the invisible dock theme you use
The facebook and twitter icons were brought into photoshop and i saw that there was no other layer. Just the icon, nothing behind it. Google searching and forum digging i found out that you must have an icon in that rounded square shape if its a 3rd party app icon. Hence here i can do it perfectly

Wow, so 3rd party apps NEED to be in that rounded shape? I wonder if you could move them to the section designated for "stock" apps so that they wouldn't need a background... Or even the places that cydia installs apps too...
Just to play... What's your base theme with all those icons??
