'ClassicBadges' Gives You the iOS 6-style Notification Badges Again on iOS 7
If you want to go back to having the iOS 6-style application icon notification badges instead of the flat-style iOS 7 application icon notification badges, then there's a new free jailbreak tweak in Cydia right now available called ClassicBadges by iOS developers CoolStar and sharedRoutine.
CassicBadges will give your application icon notification badges that shiny, bold look from iOS 6 with the classic white border all over again.
The tweak applies the iOS 6 appearance in terms of colors by itself, but the tweak also depends on WinterBoard to apply the font style and spacing. So after installing the tweak, you'll need to enable the theme in WinterBoard:
If you're into going back in time and making your iOS 7 device look like an iOS 6 device again, then this might be just what you need. And while you're at it, you might as well also use IconOmatic to un-flatten your application icons too.
If you want to give ClassicBadges a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak requires WinterBoard, so it will be installed if it's not already. You must be running iOS 7 to install this tweak.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6, WinterBoard
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6
Developer: CoolStar, sharedRoutine

Pretty good, finding the stock badges incredibly dull.
On a side, is there any way to apply a custom notification badge .png file? On iOS 6 is was as simple as dropping the customized [email protected] into the theme's com.apple.springboard folder.
The process is different with iOS 7.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

Okay so anyone interested in applying their own custom notification badge, the process is a simple one and pretty much as it was with iOS 5/6...
1.) Install ClassicBadges
2.) Make a folder and name it Bundles and place it in the ClassicBadges.theme folder
3.) Make another folder and place it inside the Bundles folder and name it com.apple.springboard
4.) Put your custom png in the com.apple.springboard and name it [email protected]
5.) Activate in Winterboard and done
The size of the custom png is 58x58...
