    I haven't been on here in forever, work is kicking my ***. Anyway I've been working on a custom theme but have had this problem. So the icons if they aren't system icons show up with a black rounded sqaure icon behind them. However now I'm having a problem where some icons show up with a rounded icon overlayed over the actual icon while others are fine. I've searched through the ones that it happens to but I can't find out what determines which ones have this overlay and which ones don't. You can see what I mean in the screenshot below I have underlined two icons you'll see the difference between them.

    was the fix you were talking about the one posted in here a few weeks ago from a zombie thread???
    ill try to find it and post those instructions, but apparently somone found the shadow icon and all you need to do is rename it, or replace it with an "alpha" one

    heres what this guy thinks

    Extualy is very simpell to solve.


    I did it in the ipod 4 v 5.1.1

    Just make sure this is in the theme

    Your theme\Bundles\com.apple.mobileicons.framework\
    and you have to put 2 text files in there and rename them to
    AppIconShadow@2x~iphone.png and
    AppIconMask@2x~iphone.png

    Now when your choose your theme your ipod wil not reconize these files as .png so it wil not use them when you have this on but u can set it off from your winter board by unselecting it.

    so when your theme is off your icons will be normal

    And if your theme is on and u have still some icons that are not themed just theme them u can easely theme them your self bij addind a map into the bundle map in your them with the icon (maps name must be the name that u find in the info.plis of the app under identifier)

    Are you using photoshop? You'll need to use a mask and layer, then flatten to remove layers.
