I am having a problem that I can't seem to resolve. All of the icons that I have changed that are from the App Store have a black background. I have replaced the following files in Bundles/SpringBoard.app with transparent versions but still no luck after multiple re-springs and re-starts. I've included a picture of what it looks like. I am using winterboard, but have made the changes manually with no luck also. iPhone 4 running 4.0.1 if it matters.

Haha OP, you asked a question and didnt get an answer; instead youre the one getting questions about your pretty icons.
Ok well I have a question, in attempt to help you of course... These icons youre getting, they dont already have that black backround do they?
Have you opened the icons in photoshop to see?
Try changing the colors in PS of the icons' backgrounds. Im thinking it might also be a minor incompatibility with iPhone 4, so perhaps try downloading an iPhone 4 compatible theme via Cydia, then SSH and copy it to your comp. Open the icons folder and examine how those icons look in PS and also make sure your icons are saved in the same format.

hey jml i cant help you out but maybe you can help me. I see you successfully change the iPod icon. I keep putting my icon in but it will not change. I am naming it icon-MediaPlayer.png and replacing the existing one but it does not change after respring. i am not adding the .png in the rename because it puts that on it once you place it in there. what am i doing wrong. again sorry for the question when you are the one wanting help

ssh into the phone and go to system/library/core services/springboard.app then scroll all the way to the bottom and delete these 6 lines - WallpaperIconDockShadow - WallpaperIconDockShadow@2x - WallpaperIconDockShadowT - WallpaperIconShadow - WallpaperIconShadow@2x - and WallpaperIconShadowT be sure to back those files up before you delete them just in case you want them back for some reason.

It's hard to explain just try it out. If anyone finds a different way tell me.
Hope this helps.

Does the iphone have to be jailbroken to ssh? I can't get iphone explorer to work, only occasionally can I get in.
