    alright so these next few images are all found in the usual springboard.app (/system/library/coreservices/springboard.app
    FolderIconBG- this is the folder icon... size = 59x62 pxl
    FolderDropBG- this is the image you see when you drag an icon onto a folder and it "lights up" size = 177x177 pxl
    FolderSwitcherBG- this is the image used to skin the inside of the folder size = 320x480 pxl
    IconDarkeningOverlay- this image is used to shadow icons when they are clicked on (you know to make it look like it sinks in) size = 58x62
    SwitcherIconShadow- erm not 100% on this atm but i believe its the icon shadow on the multitask dock (@LiB maybe youknow and can update this when you add it to the top) and its size = 59x60
    lol this is takin me ages because i dont have sbsettings or respringer so i keep having to reboot rather than a simple respring...
    WallpaperIconDockShadow AND WallpaperIconDockShadowT- iOS4 creates shadows behind icons (you can only really see them when you have an iBlank) these two images create the shadow for DOCK ICONS ONLY!!
    WallpaperIconShadow AND WallpaperIconShadowT- these two images are responsible for shadows created behind apps on springboard read below for more on these four images...
    ok so i was gna try and explain how these four images work but im having trouble with it atm because my wifi isnt working so i have to keep rebooting will update later on..

    oh and we are pretty sure that the statusbar is now made with code (using a background shadow) because there is no image ANYWHERE!!!!

    FolderNotchHighlight, FolderShadowBottom, FolderShadowNotch, FolderShadowTop- these four a kind of self explanatory, they give open folders shadowing and create the little notch bit. havnt found much to do with these atm but im sure some of the awesome themers in the community will be able to!
    FolderTitleEditField- this image creates the text input field when you are editing a folders name...
    GhostlyIconMask- UNKOWN
    JibblerBackground- i just found this image, dont know what it does atm size = 320x480[/COLOR]
    JibblerFadeLeft- again i have no idea does anyone know what the "jibbler" is???????????????????????????????????????????????? ????????????????????????

    MCNext, MCPause, MCPlay, MCPrev..
    these images are for the ipod controls in the MTDock there. there are three images for EACH ONE, and are called >>MCNext, MCNext_d, MCNext_p
    there also black versions of these images, i dont know what they are for though. they are called PlayT, PauseT, NextT, NextOffT, PrevT, PrevOffT..
    RotationLockButton and RotationUnlockButton these two little beauties are the orient-lock buttons in the MTDock and i believe are very fun to theme =] (does anyone know where the statusbar orient lock icon is????)
    thats all i have atm theres LOADS i havnt covered but im gonna test some out to see exactly what they do first hope this helps you guys!!! looks like its gunna b fun themeing 4.0 =]

    The Jibbler is the background when you press and hold the home button for voice recognition to enable music, place a call etc (iPhone only) and the fade is the sides of the image.

    *** for the status bar only thing so far is nothing is theme-able but the carrier.

    Ok I only have a 3G so didn't have a clue THANKS
    And I mean the ACTUAL status bar itself not the stuff that's on it, and I believe you can still theme the carrier by going to the actual image and replacing that, I'm not sure about with winterboard I'm guessing you can.
    (I'm not guns use winterboard for as long as possible caus my 3G isn't handling multitasking that well anymore lol)

    I've been working and searching to theme the status bar for days. Can't find anything... is it hard coded in somewhere instead of an image, I'm wondering...

    Has anyone tried fixing a custom status bar to the top of the wallpaper.png to see if the standard "stealth" status bar is transparent?

    Create transparent WallpaperIconShadow.png and WallpaperIconShadowT.png and put them in

    /private/var/stash/Themes/theme.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard
    Ok, it seems that dock shadow image is the same size as the springboard shadow image. So if you want remove the shadows off of the springboard and the dock you will need 4 images: WallpaperIconShadow.png, WallpaperIconShadowT.png, WallpaperIconDockShadow.png and WallpaperIconDockShadowT.png. Just duplicate and rename the images previously attached and you will be able to remove the shadow from the springboard and the dock.

    1. Status Bar themeing

    2. Badge text themeing, Info.plist entry doesn't work anymore...

    3. Docked icon text transparency. Info.plist with color: Transparent doesn't work anymore...

    kabamodern. We are all awaiting these. People have been trying to figure out the status bar but it seems to be embedded with the artwork file. Which means it's likely to be a while before someone has a solution.

    I know - I didn't know if anyone had a solution to the others. Maxxy said he took apart a couple .artwork files and still nothing. Just checking in, thanks.

    The White Icon Labels theme in winterboard still works to make the icon labels white. Now I haven't looked at it yet to see if it's still using an Info.plist, but if it is you can change the color of the text to what ever your springboard is, or at least something that will make it look like its hidden. Just a thought, when I get a chance I'll open it up and take a look and let you know, if no one else has by then.

    Here's the thing. Applying color: Transparent WILL change the text; however, it makes it like gray... It kind of looks like there is still some background there that affects the text...

    Ok, I just took a look and I see what your saying. I think I may have figured out what's causing it. It seems to look like the reflection of the dock icons are what's making it that gray color. If you know of some way to turn off the reflection then it may work.

    I've made it work - thanks to some help from the members of MacThemes. In your Info.plist file in the root of your theme...

    <key>DockedIconLabelStyle</key>
    <string>color: transparent; text-shadow: transparent 0px 1px 0px;</string>

    Enjoy

    Good stuff. I figured it had to be something like that. I've been out of touch, so I'm going back to knowledge of themes on 2.0. I'm starting to get back into it again, so much has changed, especially with iOS4.

    So, seems like AirPortSettings.bundle icons are only using inside Settings App when picking a WiFi network - not for Status Bar.

    Found this one today. To theme the old UILCDBackground.png in UIImages, it's now called BarLCD.png and needs to go into: Bundles/com.apple.TelephonyUI/BarLCD.png

    Anyone making progress on the Status Bar yet - this one is a killer!
