    I got the theme working nicely! I followed the instructions and renamed the file and all looked good. From what I can tell you have to download the extra Icons from the google docs page? Im guessing you have to ssh the icons into a folder? Rename the old one for the new one? Which folder do they go into?

    Also here's my lock screen and home screen....



    yes, tried it. no luck



    not sure if you got my email or not but inside that .zip is a folder named: Blue Apple Clean 2

    i took that folder and put it into my var>stash>Themes and set it in winterboard.. all the necessary icons were available on my springboard..

    Now this is going to bug me. I'll look into it, but another idea would be to get in touch with the creator of the Carbon X theme--didn't you say earlier that you were using some of his icons, which don't seem to have that problem?

    If you hear anything, let us know!

    I remember that too but couldn't remember where I read it. I'll go back to your link.
    So here is the relevant quote, but I don't know if it still holds for 4.x software:


    Ah sorry you may need to remove the spring board caches.
    I cant remember the exact path but is something like / var/applications/library/caches/
    there are some artwork cache files in there remove them then reboot and it should work.
    Ive got all the info at home but im at work at the mo

    edit:

    Also with the new artwork file that you have. Try exporting it again to a new empty "other" folder and make sure the files you replaced are there. Ive had an issue with replacing file and re-importing where the replaced files where not imported.

    DONE !!

    works perfect cheers mate

    Those are located in /var/mobile/Library/Caches, there are 2 icon cache files there, one for the springboard icons (full size) and one for spotlight (small size).


    Good luck again, hope that leads you in the right direction anyway.

    One more question: are you talking about a shadow that's always behind the odd-shaped icon, or one that only shows up when you press on the icon? See this thread for a possibility.

    I think both you and Ipheuria might get a lot out of this thread over at modmyi. A lot being discussed, including icon shadows and Ipheuria's elusive stock icon replacements...

    I'd appreciate the files, man. Yes, the files are icon@2x.png and icon.png... I think they are from BLiNK's zip file... I followed the detail guide on the TiPb front page that talks about changing stock icons, and believe that I have done the steps exactly as described there (and quoted by BLiNK)... but no go... It's frustrating, but will be worth it when it's done - if we get there.

    Since the items are/may be cached, I could see the problems... but wouldn't a hard reset clear the cache? Oh, well, it will work when it works (IF it works) This is definitely a learning experience...
    Sorry hank I forgot I didn't bring my laptop home but I will send you the theme tomorrow. You can add me on twitter or shoot me a PM with your email addie so I know where to send it.

    Main Theme - Elite Pro HD (icons, theming in ipod, phone, mail, etc) purchased on cydia.
    Slider - Revolte HD Slider
    Lockscreen - Modified a version of the LS Nimbus
    Signal and Wifi - Forgot where I got them. I modified them a while ago, but when I downloaded them their original name was "signalwifi.theme".
    Thank you that's one nice *** theme gotta get that one
    Massie thanks for the links I'll check the cache location and also check that thread out

    make sure you thoroughly look in this folder. a lot are made already they might just have to be named correctly. if you do not find the one you need in the folder or google docs, the Dev does take requests in that massive thread i posted earlier


    Also here's my lock screen and home screen....
    lookin' good! the new LockInfo is simply Epic

    definitely the shadowing behind certain icons before pressed. i searched for days trying to figure out the shadowing when pressed, literally. finally came to terms that it could not be done and after reading that last link you provided, that is the case..
    OK guys I've done some testing.

    Bad news: If you want auto create icons on 4.2.1 WITH NO "pressed icon image" you CAN'T!!!

    What I believe Crapple has done is fuse the "IconDarkeningOverlay.png" with the "AppIconMask.png"*. The "WHITE" area on the AppIconMask.png (ie the part of the icon that is NOT being masked) turns into the semi-transparent black "shape" (I say "shape" because it depends on what your AppIconMask.png is) that comes up when you press an icon.

    If any finds a way around or would like to correct me feel free. But for me I believe it is a dead end as for now.
    *this explains why i could never find the IconDarkeningOverlay.png file

    glad you posted that cause now my obsession can finally stop with that

    anyways, thanks for the time & effort looking into this and the very useful links you have provided (they have been bookmarked!)

    i will update this portion of the thread when i find a fix

    Man, I screwed up royally... I misread that thread and deleted the ENTIRE /var/mobile/Library/Cachescache folder, not just the com.apple.IconsCache.

    Now most of my icons are now the blank white boxes regardless of the theme... fixing to restore and re-jailbreak...

    Yeah, I'll do the same. And I'm pretty sure you read/tried this, but one last chance:
    "Theme changes required to bring your 4.1 theme up to 4.2.1 - Page 6

    If you are using an iPhone 4, of course you need to add the @2x designator on the end of the image name.

    OUCH. Lesson learned: always, always, create a backup before deleting/overwriting anything. In fact, iPhonebrowser does this by default; on the off chance you're using that it might be something you can restore.

    Edit: another idea...are you sure those icons won't come back with use and/or an iTunes sync? Did you try opening anything? Restoring is always a final option for me.

    Yeah, I tried the sync and opening stuff... even tried installing a new theme... no dice... and no, no iPhonebrowser... iFile... I am screwed... so... I went through the Cydia app installed stuff (manage) and did screen prints and synced the photos with my MBP...

    Biggest questions now are what about the apps from Cydia that I paid for? LockInfo, BiteSMS... was ready to get a few more, but I think those are the only two that that i have paid for so far... can I re-download?

    The ones you have to rename are called WallpaperIconShadow@2x~iphone.png and wallpapericondock~iphone@2x or something along those lines

    Too late... but you can bet your last dollar that I will in the future...

    Oh, well, i wanted to restore and clean stuff up anyway, I suppose... I had had several "false starts" with the whole JB thing in the past, and wonder if that could have caused some of the issues... so a clean start will be good... but I will NOT make that mistake again...

    Thanks for your help/suggestions... and I will read things carefully and completely in the future!

    No Icon Shadow in Cydia works for me on 4.2.1

    Also for people looking to clear the cache there is a Cydia tweak called fsWipeCache which works great..

    Hank,

    Like BLiNK and Massie said when I'm about to delete anything on my phone I download a copy to my computer via SSH. The phone OS is only like 500MB anyway so it's not like it's going to take up enormous space. You deleted OEM folder from the firmware what about just replacing it with one from someone else's phone? I will happily send you mine. I know I wouldn't because I am OCD and prefer to have the OS in proper shape instead of pitchy patchy but if you need it let me know. rwilliams0926@gmail.com

    I also have my theme so whatever you decide I can send it to you when you're ready and you see if the icon changes.

    BLiNK - The size of the shadow when you press the icon comes from the transparent area behind the icon in photoshop. While you can't totally get rid of it you can make it smaller. I did this when I put in my phone icon and it was using the bigger size when I clicked it. I cropped the empty area around the icon down and the shadow of when pressed also got smaller.

    Thanks, but I have almost everything back the way it was before I screwed it up... the post in question talked about removing the icon cache, but I simply misread the post and deleted the "target" folder's parent folder... and with it, any semblance of non-chaos on my phone. I usually do back stuff up before deleting anything, but I was so frustrated with the phone icon issue, and saw a possible fix... and, well, the rest is history, as they say.

    This is most definitely a lesson learned...
