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

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

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.follow me on twitter @mbliesner

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.

-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
