    Winterboard, in the window where you turn on SummerBoard, says that SummerBoard is an old protocol and can really slow things down. Is that true?

    If it does, I haven't noticed it. I've been using that method for a while now. Although, it can't be utilized on the new iPad.

    Well - what Winterboard actually says - right under the SummerBoard Mode switch is this:
    "Most themes are ancient/Slow, designed for SummerBoard, not WinterBoard"

    What do you think that means? Are they just saying - to have access to the most themes you could potentially download - you should turn that switch on? Yeah -- I'll bet that's what they're saying there.

    So let me test this. Post a quick cool icon of yours, for, let's say Mail.app - and I'll pull it into my new folder and respring and see it I have it.

    At your leisure of course.

    OH - and two icons I REALLY need that are rarely themed are my WellsFargo bank app and the Starbucks card app. If you're feeling in the mood I'd love an EPHD and a ZUI try at those two apps.

    Think of winterboard as Windows 7 and summerboard as XP. You can run programs through either one, but everything will be faster in 7.

    Just a little FYI, it is winterboard itself that slows down your phone when loading apps. Summerboard will add to the slowing also, but probably won't be that noticeable on a 4 or 4s. That disclaimer under summerboard has been there for years, with the faster phones, it doesn't apply.

    the "new" z|ui - ui alternative | sometimes less is more FREE-icon-2x.png

    Okay. Thanks. Well - I did the SummerBoard Method -- with your Settings Icon. Created the folder called Icons in the ZUI theme root directory. Renamed your icons to Settings.png and [email protected]. Resprang. Didn't work. Something I remembered almost instantly was file permissions. Went into iFile and had to change the permissions to Execute on your images -- THEN resprang and I could see your icon.

    LAST problem. There's a white border around your icon instead of the icon blending into the wallpaper like it should. What's up with that?

    You need to click on the icon first to open the popup. Then right-click and hit save image as.

    It's been awhile but as I recall there were framed, frameless, and then framed z icons (with a minor adjustment to the framed icon). They were the same icons just framed differently. Several people here preferred frameless but the majority seemed to prefer framed z which is what most of the icons posted to this thread have been.

    After that Zausser introduced some custom icons which then made their way into the all in one, simplified "PRIME" theme as the default icons. They use the framed z icon frame/mask.

    Sorry if this adds to your confusion. (Or if my memory is poor.)
