    Default illumine them "issue" ???
    First off, I want to say that I absolutely love the illumine theme, but i noticed this little thing the other day. no matter what i install, even if I dont have the illumine theme checked in winterboard, the icons from cydia and app store become illumine'ed. I can even go to the app store and view the apps on there in illumine icons!?! its weird. right now its not a huge issue because i keep my phone for the most part on the illumine theme, but if i uncheck it, icons that arent covered in the theme i choose, look like illumine theme. its like forever themed onto everything!! anyone else notice this??illumine them "issue" ???-camera-roll-6.jpg

    he updates it regularly.. the one from the mac themes repo gets updated like every other day, if you SSH into your phone, and go to the icons folder of the theme.. you'll see how many icons there are... 1800+

    I had this problem once before with a different theme. For some reason my iPhone wigged out and all my icons were stuck with that theme. I even tried to SSH to remove the theme, but it kept reappearing in WinterBoard. I removed WinterBoard and my icons changed to normal, but as soon as I reinstalled it, the icons were back to the theme. I was beta testing several different things at the same time, so I think that's what caused the wigout, but it resulted in a restore.

    ive been using illumine theme for a couple weeks with no problems. I can change themes fine and app store apps show up as stock icons.

    I think the issue is with the icon mask being used. I added the icon mask so even if an ILLUMINE icon wasnt available, it would display the original with a glow. You can simply remove the icon mask files from the theme folders below (be aware that the original icons for some apps may be worse then having the glow on the Appstore.)

    A reason I like this theme so much is because of those UIImages, and yes I never really noticed that either.

    Removing the mask wont make ILLUMINE glow disappear altogether, ONLY on icons that are not made (In the icons folder) or miss-spelled.

    Actually, I believe the issue is not caused by the UIImages but simply the icon cache itself. Try deleting the contents of /var/mobile/Library/Caches/SpringBoardIconCache. I am will to bet this will correct the icons to the current theme you are trying to use; assuming the three files of that theme are made correctly.

    At the very least it should remove the mask of the old theme. I hope all this makes sense.

    SpringBoardIconCache delete...That helps with icons not getting themed.
    The above issue was about appstore icons getting themed from my Icon mask. Removing the mask will then show normal icons in the appstore but also cause icons not in the Illumine theme to show "Large" normal sized icons. I would leave the Mask alone.

    Where did you get these files? my theme doesn't have them. I have quite the opposite of this problem. I had all of my icons (even ones without ILLUMINE icons, as well as app store icons) illumin themed. I restored with a newer firmware and reinstalled everything, and now i have mismatched icons, as well as all app store icons in their original format. How do I theme EVERYTHING back?
