    Question Where are SpringBoard icon masks located?
    The SpringBoard doesn't apply the glossy/rounded drop shadow mask thing on applications from Cydia, so either developers fake it or it looks ugly. I might distribute some stuff on Cydia later, I'm learning to dev for iPhone/iPod touch, but anyway, does anything know/can find out where the masks that the SpringBoard uses to do that are located, so that I can apply those to my own icons, so it will look as if the SpringBoard actually was doing it? I tried looking around, in SpringBoard.app and other places, but couldn't find them. Or are they internal to some other file or something? If I can't get it this way, what would be the best way to fake the rounded corners and gloss/bevel effect? Thanks!

    (I know that someone has made a psd file that pretty much does exactly the same thing, but Its not really meant for applying to your own icon, only for testing out, the size isn't right and it has the dock grate thing around it.. anyway..)

    /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/Other.artwork

    You'll need to use iPhoneShop or something like that to decompile the PNGs.

    The files are called
    -AppIconMask.png
    -AppIconShadow.png
    -AppIconOverlay.png

    Hope this helped!! =)

    Oh, and after you recompile the PNGs, use the Other.artwork that's created in the /Other/ folder, not the original

    Thanks, I didn't think anyone would actually know.. Ok I got iPhoneShop, how can I decompile the artwork file? I tried, but I don't understand what import|export means in the usage:
    Kens-iMac: Downloads mitch$ java -jar iPhoneShop-0.6.jar
    Usage: java -jar iPhoneShop.jar command
    ARTWORK - artwork files tool
    KDICT - keyboard dictionary tool
    Kens-iMac: Downloads mitch$ java -jar iPhoneShop-0.6.jar ARTWORK
    Usage: java -jar iPhoneShop.jar ARTWORK artworkFile export|import targetDir
    KeyboardArtwrokMGR v. 0.3 (iiton)
    Kens-iMac: Downloads mitch$ java -jar iPhoneShop-0.6.jar ARTWORK ~/Desktop/Other.artwork ~/Documents/Other.artwork
    Usage: java -jar iPhoneShop.jar ARTWORK artworkFile export|import targetDir
    KeyboardArtwrokMGR v. 0.3 (iiton)
    Kens-iMac: Downloads mitch$

    Well, you seem to be using an old version of iPhoneShop... Version 1.3 includes automated .bat files for importing and exporting...Download it here:

    http://modmyi.com/forums/attachments...neshop-3.0.zip

    Copy your artwork file to directory, create a folder called Other, and run export.bat. Change your files, and run import.bat... the new Other.artwork will be created in the \Other\folder
