    Default Auto Create iPad Icons
    Hello guys so iPad icons finally got auto created. CREDIT FOR FINDING THIS I GIVE TO TOYVAN SINCE HE IS THE ONE WHO FIRST CAME TO ME ABOUT IT. The images are as follows:

    AppIconMask-72.png 74x76
    AppIconShadow-72.png 74x76
    AppIconOverlay-72.png 74x76

    they belong in ThemeName/Bundles/com.apple.mobileicons.framework iwipecache doesn't work so to get the auto to work you have to go to /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.IconsCache and delete everything in there and then do a hard reboot. a respring will not work.
    EDIT: Winterboard automatically resets the caches so you do not have to do this step anymore, unless you really want to.

    There are problems with this all though the auto icons will be really crisp clear, the custom ones will still not. Also, to get the auto icons and the custom icons the same size, the auto icon images must be around the sizes given i made mine 74x74 and the custom icons must be iphone icon size images mine were 60x60

    This is what mine look like as you can see the Desktop icon was my original icons for my ipad theme graphite not very crisp to begin with, but better than the new custom icons that are located in the dock. I had to change the size or as you can see the auto icons are much smaller than the original custom icon but way better looking. here is the image. To really see the difference in quality click on the image then click on it again to make it it's actual size

    Lol if you guys think making autocreates are tough to do on an ipad.... making high quality default and cydia icons are a world of HELL!! Took me about 3 hours to figure out how to get about 25 default and cydia icons show up correctly. Since it was such a pain in the a** I decided to make a thread with a detailed guide for the rest of the ipad themers. Hope it helps: iPad Default Icon Theming

    Note: Santaf if you or any mods here could make that thread into a sticky I would really appreciate it so it will be easy to access for all the other ipad themers.
