    It's those packed by William in Jaku Classic's IconBundles folder which, due to IconBundles' current limitations, stretch William's icons. William approached the dev of the IconBundles tweak to ask for a fix, as his tweak wasn't made with the new 120x120px standard in mind.

    Put Calendar and Newsstand next to the Mail and Safari for demonstration.

    Calendar, Newsstand and Clock use the Bundles approach, which works fine.

    The other icons rely on that third party tweak and this is what causes the misalignment (and relative bluriness).
    The theme I run is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.

    As shown in Ivan's screenshot above : look at the Calendar in the dock ^

    Looks great nonetheless !

    I tried Bigify but it doesn't load for some reason. I'm guessing it's because I'm on i5S but I thought it said it was working for that phone.

    Here is part of my recent setup.

    I do still have to fix some of the icons because the corners are not correct.

    Ok...you guys should be able to download repo icons in the new 120x120 format. It also adds the new shadow beneath the icons.

    The bad news is that from now on, any icons you guys upload to the repo that are made using the new PSD need to have the new shadow layer hidden. Otherwise, anyone who downloads the icon in another size will end up with a cut off shadow and it will basically be unusable.

    I haven't updated the resize tool yet. I'll post an update when that is ready. Let me know if there are any alignment issues.

    Is it possible to add a hovering style shadow to these icons?

    I don't know this for sure...but it appears that since iOS7 doesn't use shadows anymore, you have to add the shadow directly to the icon. It would seem that you are then limited to the 120px vertical space. You could probably fit a skinny floating style shadow at the bottom if you wanted to. You would have to download an icon in the classic 118x120 format (so it wouldn't include the Jaku shadow), then scale the canvas up to 120x120 and add the shadow manually to each icon. Tedious to say the least.

    Tedious is what I do best. I just finished manually theming Jaku the same day William released it. 😁

    I will play around and see what I can do.

    Is there a way to view the non mobile version of the repo? The new 120x120 shows up while on my laptop but it's not on the mobile version.

    P0R7ER - try reinstalling IconBundles and see if that helps.

    Perhaps doesn't IconBundles support enabling multiple theme like WinterBoard does... That's if you're having your own folder you're adding icons to.

    The IconBundles architecture is WhateverThemeName/IconBundles/YourApps'[email protected]

    Great, thank you Bryan. Jaku Classic has alignment issues on its own due to depending on a non-updated tweak.

    Pixel perfection times are long gone.
