Anyone knows how to fix that?
(Oh, and I'm using an iPhone 4 on 4.2.1 if that's any difference.)

Not sure what you are talkin about since a mask doesn't show up as an image on top of anything are you talking about the overlay? Post a screenshot would help easier
03-07-2011, 03:01 AM #203
Oh, probably ment the overlay (there all masks to me)
To explain the theme:
Each basic Colour have a similar coloured pair of drops in the left corner (as you can see on the first row with only standard apps.)
On the second row you can see the overlay on the icon on the right but the two left ones also have the framework since you see the wrong coloured pair of drops.
Now, on this particular theme you may think it doesn't matter that much but it's still bugging me and on other themes it may be even worse.

um i don't see any overlay or anything on any of those icons but that theme doesn't use anya auto icon things because of the way those icons are they have to actualy be made in photoshop the only one that is probably an auto icon is that phone one and that would mean all appstore icons would look like that one with a blue tear. also the other two on the second row don't have that same frame they just have blue tears on them like the red one has a red one and such. if your theme has a Bundles/com.apple.mobileicons.framework/ with three images in there then it has some sort of auto icons but if not then they are all just made in photoshop how they are made and there is nothing you can do about it except making your own.
i hope that is easy to understand haha :P get back to me if there is that folder with images in there

Yeah, but you don't seem to understand the problem.
The custom icons ARE made in photoshop, I've made them.
They have silver and orange tears the two custom icons.
The thing is that all appstore icons get the framework that you see on "viber", even the custom icons, you just don't see any edge between the framework and the icon.
The question @Whitebelt and I had was if there was a way disable the auto-icon-framework on custom made icons?

hmmm okay i think i may understand i dunno but the only thing i can think of is instead of putting them in the Bundles and Folders folders haha put them like this:
All the icons must go in a folder inside the theme called Icons, like old times.
But it need 2 of them for each app.
Like App Store.png and App [email protected]
The icon with the @2x at least must be 118x120px for retina hi-res.
But you can even set it bigger,and will be in hi res.Even if you make an icon at 640 of width,it will display awesome if you set the canvas right.
For keeping the mb low,you can include the non @2x icon as a 1x1 transparent icon,as long you have the 118x120 @2x icon,the iPhone 4 will display that one,but not on older devices,so it will be better to include both of them,but the non @2x one,at 50% downscaled.
This should make it not use the mask shadow and overlay images

yeah i saw you knew about the icon folder but you said for iDevice compatibility the Icon folder works for both HD and SD though now that I think about it i guess doesn't work very well for iPad it makes it look choppy but if you jsut want retina and sd then you can use the Icon folder just fine and need not worry about compatibility. the only other way to do it in bundles i'm thinkin gis to go into all your apps info.plist and change the key to not use the overlay and such, i don't know sorry good luck.
03-07-2011, 08:35 PM #209
Would you mind giving me an example or a basic description of how I would change the plist for the app... And can the modified plist reside in the winterboard theme I hope?? And this brings up another question... I thought there was a key to do this globally but it doesn't seem to work.

i don't think you can do it in winterboard but you can try putting Info.plist in your Bundles or Folders thing for the app I think it's the UIPrerenderedIcon key and whatever the ones that are changing are set to change it to the opposite if true change to false but i really don't know I saw something on this a long time ago I'm not sure if it will work or if that is the key that you are supposed to change sorry that's all i can really say about it if you try it i would save the info.plist as it is before you change it.

Hey does this work for either retina devices or on 4.2.1 because it ain't work for me and I doubled the size and did the @2x.png thing

sry if someone already posted this..
I was wondering how to make non-appstore icons using this method manually in photoshop?
how to use the AppIconMask exactly the same way like the auto-skinning does?
I found someone else having this problem too and he posted the picture: Need help with App Icon Mask!
Edit: Also how to protect your image?

Does anyone have a fix for auto skin icons in themes for 4.3.3?
All my themes are still working now on 4.3.3 apart from the auto skin icons. I have looked everywhere for a solution but can't find one. I have check that names etc... all still match but no luck.

Tried that again mate still no good. Basically I was using the Opaque theme on 4.3.2 no problems, but once I upgraded to 4.3.3 the auto skin icons won't change? Is it still just appmask and appshadow that is needed? Both at x2? Cause I haven't change anything since I went from 4.3.2 to 4.3.3.
