    Looks very awesome!
    Would be really cool if you could make a 3D autocreate like that where it cuts off the icon In a diamond shape slightly smaller on all sides than the cube and have the cube glass as the overlay. Maybe even make the icons slightly transparent.

    Thanks but I imagine the icon masks will involve little doors and be slightly more detailed. I've already tested a few overlays, masks and shadows and since 4.2.1 there are several pretty clever solutions I'm keen on trying.

    You should ask this question in the 266 thread, but yes. I've started sending files to Optimo @Bigboss to update on Cydia. It's a big process as I've totally reworked all the files separating the theme into iOS3 & iOS4.

    The 266 update is not the HD update either, but it does work on retina devices. HD coming soon. The icon update is to HD!

    Anyway, enough talk of A 266 Collection on this thread. Please direct any questions on that to this thread:
    [UPDATE] A 266 System - official mmi support thread

    This thread is reserved for the (immense) upcoming 266 Metropolis!

    I've not used backboard much but will look into it. It should work fine.

    More to follow....

    So I thought I'd share some of the work I started back in July 2009













    The last 4 were icons but since iOS4 you canít have oversized icons. It's a shame because I actually had these working and overlapping each other.

    Still, there is still a lot of potential in this theme!

    You can always just use perpagehtml and embedd the big icons in the background as perpage wallpapers and then use transparent icons just some of the ios4 inav themes

    I believe you can also make oversized springjump icons

    Yeah, but it wouldn't allow for total user flexibility. I'd like the user to be able to move every icon to the position they want, that way they can create and re-create new cities when they get bored.

    PerPageHTML can be used to create different widgets that can be placed behind and infront of the icons.

    I see. The only other way to have oversized icons is to turn on summerboard mode and use the good ole Icons folder in the theme but thats not in HD.

    Do you have an screenshots of an autocreate if you made one yet?

    Are you talking about making all icons bigger or just some? Because if its just a couple specific to the theme then you should try springjumps

    What do you mean it's not in HD? I use summerboard mode (have ever since I purchased the iNav theme and it works beautifully in HD. I have made larger icons work and look fine using the Icons folder:


    The center icon is my icon for iPod - larger than normal - still in HD



    The very large phone in the middle is the icon for Phone - still in HD
