    Default Hiding Icons W/out black icon cover
    I was just messing with the code and if anyone wants to know how to modify plist so that certian icons do not show here is brief steps on how to do that.
    -Open up plist and move all code of the icon.
    For example <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.stocks</string>
    </dict>
    is under Icon list, well just move the above code to the
    <key>special</key>
    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.springboard</string>
    </dict>

    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.stocks</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.MALogger</string>
    </dict>
    </array>
    like above, make sure to put it between the springboard code and the MALogger code for it to be hidden. Then save file to directory as usual. here is pichttp://home.comcast.net/~jcherry24/P1010840.JPG of my display and there are no hidden icons, I even moved stocks down there, so
    basicly any icons you dont want displayed move to bottom.

    -any further questions send me a message.

    so this keeps the icon in the same location? and can it still be pressed?

    No anything listed under special is hidden. Like you can not select or launch the SpringBoard app, it's hidden. If you move say Stocks into special then it will not be available at all.

    yes so anything down there is hidden from view and you can not click on it. I saw alot of people posting over in the gunmetal skin forum, asking how to get rid of specifice icons, Im not at home right now but when i get home tonight Im going to try and create a blank place holder that does nothing. so that if you click field it just stays there. To center icons without having it launch a page.
