01-26-2012, 12:01 PM #1Folder background image suddenly downscaled? (4S / Absinthe jailbreak)
I jailbroke my 4S last night, and haven't really encountered any issues (minus music being deleted), except for the grey backgrounds of all the folders and multitask bar.
It looks like the image was shrunk down to 1/4 the size. I've seen other people's issues with apps being shrunken to 1/4 of the screen, but this is centered in the middle and doesn't affect performance. I've been trying to attach a screencap but haven't been able to upload it on 2 computers.
I tried the solutions people used for the app shrinking (safe mode -> reset for instance), but this doesn't seem to go away. I also tried to force new background images through a top-layer theme (640x960), and while that did update the image, it was still scaled down, centered in the frame of the folder.
Does anyone have any other ideas? I know it would help with a picture... maybe it'll work later. Thanks in advance!

Nevermind, I figured it out.
If anyone else has this problem, there are 2 sets of caches that need to be deleted.
There are 4 files, "com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.x", x is 0 to 4
I'm not sure which of these are necessary to delete, I got rid of SBDockBG, both WallpaperIcons and FolderIconBG

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM IN BOTH the folder & multitasking bar.
Easy fix...go to cydia and search "Abstract folder & multitasking theme" install.
Then go to winterboard and select the theme and respiring.....your welcome god. Any other question just ask......

found a fix - go to cydia and install "fsWipeCache" it will wipe the background settings leaving you to fix/install/create a new one - best to download one for winterboard "abstract folder and multitasking background" then edit it to suit you style

Any solutions yet? It seems some methods are working for people and are not working for others. I've tried clearing cache manually, using iwipecache, fswipecache. It just happened out of the blue. Don't know what caused it, but ive already seen people restore and have the problem come back. Help would be greatly appreciated!

im pretty sure I noticed this when I installed facebookthis.. but I since restored my phone and haven't reinstalled..... but the problem is still here. I've tried every method in this topic..

Mine is ok at the moment, but as 3 people suggest FacebookThis, I will remove it, mine started after doing a reset all settings (with FacebookThis installed), now you have FacebookThis removed, you could try a reset all settings and then the sequence in post #9, which is the order I did.
Also check IconSupport is upto date, it had memory leak issues at a similar time to when these issues started for me.

Maybe you have some non compatible iOS5 tweaks like Auto Location? Worth checking what you have in Cydia.
08-15-2012, 06:30 AM #13
idk I didn't just remove facebookthis, I did a total restore, rejailbroke and didn't install it. and all my tweaks are ios5 compatible. I'll try reset all settings. what's that do exactly? I guess just resets every preference or does it delete things like shortcuts I've created, ringtones etc?
08-15-2012, 06:46 AM #14
Hi, reset all settings puts wallpaper, sounds, iOS preferences back to factory, you won't loose your ringtones, but you will have to reselect them. All wifi passwords are lost, but you wont loose any app data or saves.

okay figured it out. ios6 photos menu was the culprit. its the Facebookthis tweak and/or iOS 6 Photos Menu or any tweak from NobitaZZZ that causes it. remove and use icleaner and you're set. thanks.
