So, did it work for you guys? I've confirmed it again today. Also, do any of you know how to make a widget push HD images?
Ok, another update... when putting the icons in the 'Icons' folder in your theme, you don't have to shrink them either. You can keep both files the same size. I'm assuming ios is just using the file as a referenced link to the hi res file.

make sure the lockscreen file is LockBackground.jpg (case sensitive and a jpg not a png)
this might be more of a 4.1 thing, im almost up to template for messaging, i guess ill find out then
actually try MessageEntryBG@2x in the chakit.framework folder...(untested) ah ignore that brain started working, that will simply be the input field bg...hrm, nothing standing out for me at this stage

Sup fellas, here are a few things that I found out for icons, and possibly more... such as UIImages, etc. I was able to put a completely blank icon 118x120 then put in an actual hi res image with the @2x into the icons folder and it works. Probably works for UIImages also, I haven't gotten that far with that. But I did find out as before, one image does not have to be the smaller size... just be sure to have one named the default name of the app without the @2x, then put the real deal with the @2x in the same folder then viola!!
If I find anything else, i'll let you all know...
Oh wait, I did. I don't know how you guys get your icons, but if you want to use the default hi res image instead of creating one or copying from the internet, do this.
Make sure you have ifile. Go to var/mobile/applications in ifile. Now go into the app folders of each app. Find the [email protected] file, open it in ifile, then send it to your camera roll. Once it's there, honest to buddha or whom ever, it has been converted (whether HD, or not). So no need for third party tolls (per se).

Hmm something struck me, when should 'Folders' or 'Bundles' be used?
10-23-2010, 07:53 AM #50
basics for now,
anything under UIImages doesn't currently support @2x extension
everything else pretty much does
Folders similar to bundles...depends on developer / app
Bundles is usually for individual image files relating to one app, eg phoneFollow me on twitter @inappmatt check out my YouTube stupidity Youtube.com/Inappropriatematt (NSFW)

eg: TelephonyUI.framework stuff goes into com.apple.TelephonyUI in Bundles
ChatKit.framework stuff goes the same name(ChatKit.framework) in Folders.
I moved Chatkit stuff into Bundles with the folder name of com.apple.ChatKit which seems rather logical it should work fine, but somehow it didn't work out OR am I just doing it wrong.
Anw, what do you mean by individual image files relating to one app? and the word 'usually', so does it really matter if it was Folders or Bundles?
10-23-2010, 06:49 PM #54
chatkit is a different animal
some need to be in folders some need to be in bundles.
tbh im still not around all of it and im still soldering my way through creating templates for it all...when I get around to it ill do the research and update the guideFollow me on twitter @inappmatt check out my YouTube stupidity Youtube.com/Inappropriatematt (NSFW)

Hmm ok, lucky it's only 2 folders to differentiate from, so I'll just try my luck and put it into 1 of them hoping it does work on the first try.
A lil problem with the carrier logo here.
I put the 2 logos into 'Folders->com.apple.carriernamehere' (100% positive I got the correct name) and resprang it, works great it got changed.
But I realised for some reasons when running the Facebook app (maybe other apps too), the carrier logo reverts back to showing to the original.
So went into the phone files and I found out it's the Default carrier logo causing this change.
If I replaced that original 'default logo' with my custom logo, turned on the facebook app it works fine after that.
Any insights on this? :>
