    Folders similar to bundles...depends on developer / app
    Bundles is usually for individual image files relating to one app, eg phone
    Wait, how is this so, when i'm running HiRes in my UIImages folder?

    My pleasure... here is my screen shot of the task bar which are UUImages only, and I added my 3g fireball for those that want it and the PSD to modify it. Remember this is in the "***.theme\UIImages" folder

    And here is the folder hierarchy through iphone explorer.

    cheers KJ,

    I notice you also have the non @2x images in there, Can you do a test for me. Copy the theme folder to something else like me I dunno test. Go into the UIImages folder and remove all the non @2x files so you only have the @2x left. then let me know if it still works. I'm pretty sure its still only picking up the non @2x.
    cheers (make sure to disable all the other themes too so we don't get polluted results

    Here is the test, and of course it's back to the stock images. My theory was that the non @2x files are just references because I have non @2x files that are completely empty and the @2x still work. But here are the results:

    Here is the change...

    GUIDE theming in 4.X-test.png

    And the result...

    GUIDE theming in 4.X-img_0156.png

    I don't know what this answers for you, i hope this information helps.

    I thought the iphone reads the [email protected] as 'what' it's going to display and the @2x.pngs as 'how' it's going to display them...

    Also, the Black_ and Silver_ titles for the status bar icons are in reference to the home springboard status bar (Black) and the 'open App' status bar (Silver). Some apps like Cydia and iFile disable custom status bar theming on purpose.

    Meh I think the @2x images under uiimages are just there now because most devs are hoping wb will be updated to support them. With the smaller icons as a work around

    Maybe so, but they are default on the iphone 4 in many locations. I just think as I stated before a point of reference, where the @2x inside the naming of the file shrinks it down to the normal size. And with the pixel ratio doubled, that is what gives it the HI DEF look.

    I think you'll still find under that dir they do nothing..its a winterboard thing. take a look,

    grab a theme and take a screenshot of your homescreen, then delete all the @2x under UIImages and take a similar screenshot, compare. They will be identical.

    I hear you and I already did that... but if you delete the stock @2x images from a stock folder, the low res comes up. Either way, let's theme. We know it works and how to do it, the semantics really doesn't matter!! LOL

    Theme on baby!!

    Thanks KingJust,

    Finally got around to testing it and you are 100% correct. With just the @2x nothing works. but with the smaller icons there they are definately using the @2x in some weird refrence magic dealy.

    main guide updated.

    Like I said earlier, I truly believe that the purpose of @2x.pngs is for the retina display to recognize 'how' it will display the .png icons. In other words, it sees the .png file as 'what' it will display and then the @2x.png file tells it to display the .png file as a HD image.

    For example:
    -take a .png image and then copy it
    -add @2x.png to the end of it
    -place it back into the same folder as the original .png file
    -then test it out.

    It will HALF the image size but that Image will be in HD!

    (When creating a theme) This is why we would START with a retina display image size labeled @2x.png and then decrease that by 50% (labeled .png) to get a true HD image.....does that make sense!?!?

    Yeah. It's just stupid how all the other folders work fine with just the @2x images but uiimages needs both to work. Gotta wonder what apple were thinking when they started figuring how they would display graphics. Lol for some if them to work you need to call them @2x~iPhone.png. Wtb continuity
