With my icons, if you notice there's a thick black bar underneath w/ the reflection which is NOT transparent.. It's there to block the text out.. There was a post somewhere on the forum about modding the TEXT info and changing the words, but I forgot where I read it..
If you WANT the text, you can simply cut off the black bar on the bottom of each icon and it'll show up.. Just make sure you lop off the same amount on each icon, or one will be higher than the other..

This is a great theme. There are a few issues with it. The safari icon's reflection doesn't go to the bottom. It is a bit higher than the rest of the icon's mirroring. Also, the blue fade on the right hand side next to the iPod has a piece missing, resulting in a vertical black bar next to the iPod.
I kinda like the mirroring on the top rows, I just wish it wasn't a sharp transition from the mirroring to the black. There doesn't appear to be a fade on the mirroring on the top rows like there is on the bottom. I'd kinda like to see a version without any mirroring on the top icons. The new apple logo looks nice.
All around great theme, great progress.

I love it.

Here's an idea for those who like the text like myself. You can preserve the reflection of the icons and have your own text simply by adding text on each image. Here's something i made pretty quickly to show what it would look like. the text color is the same silver used for the icons.
I hope digitalkid doesn't mind.
AWESOME WORK MAN!!!

It would be nice if you posted those icons for us

I still would love to see icons with the black removed. Actually, the complete mirroring effect removed on the top 3 rows only.

Amazing work, I am absolutely in love with how my iPhone looks now.
Keep up the great work!

I love it, man, it looks great on my iPhone.
The only thing I can say is, in your preview, the mirror effect on the bottom has a transparent gradient on it, which makes it fade into the black very well. When actually installed on my iPhone, that gradient is no longer there, and it looks a little too cut off on the bottom. A hard line, where it should softly fade into the black.
Other than that, its awesome. And of course, I'm just picky.

I asbolutely love this theme but for some reason the apple logo doesn't show... that empty row of icons where the apple logo is supposed to come up is just empty (black).... am I doing something wrong or is there something I have to do to get that empty row to show the pic?
Also, does anyone have the icons with the actual names below? Read about someone who was going to post the zip file... would love that!

can someone make the icons (not the ones in the dock, just the top 3 rows) without any mirror at all? I love the set and the overall look, but I don't like how the mirroring just kind of ends around the apple logo.

Yah, thats like what I was saying, it doesn't necessarily need to come off, but it DOES need to have that transparent gradient be a little more steep, so we see a "fade" in the mirror, or a "blend" into the black. That would soften it up quite a bit.
In my opinion, thats all this one needs to be perfect. That and maybe a cleaned up phone, mail, and iPod icon... they look just a tad blurry.
Either way, this one is my current theme on the phone. Thats saying a lot!
