    Default Theme changes required to bring your 4.1 theme up to 4.2.1
    Some of you may have already updated to 4.2.1 *as i did* and noticed that all the 4.1 themes *excluding iDivinorumHD v1.2* don't display all of the icons! The problem here is that crApple has decided to rename some icons and move some others in 4.2.1 compared to what they were in 4.1.

    With that a few easy changes need to be made to make your 4.1 theme compatible with 4.2.1

    Lets start when you first turn on your phone. If you have any kind of customized html based lockscreen you will notice that the image you set from your camera roll doesn't show up as the lock background anymore crApple has done away with a usable image that can be called via html and instead renamed that file and the Homescreen background to be LockBackground.cpbitmap and HomeBackground.cpbitmap I tried just putting that filename in replace in html and it wouldn't load. BUT...since most themes dont use the full res image for the lockscreen there is still LockBackgroundThumbnail.jpg and HomeBackgroundThumbnail.jpg that are 206x308...so they will still make for good neo Style html lock screens

    Moving into the homescreen.
    First thing you will notice, folders, camera, and photos icons are the defaults

    Camera Icon
    Camera and photos have been seperated in 4.2.1
    copy our icon-camera.png to a new folder called
    /bundles/com.apple.Camera
    and then you will need the icons
    Default.png
    [email protected]
    Icon-Camera.png becomes Icon.png
    [email protected] becomes [email protected]

    Photos Icon
    The Camera was removed from the mobileslideshow but the photos remain.
    in /bundles/com.apple.mobileslideshow you need to rename
    Default.png to Default~iphone.png
    [email protected] to Default@2x~iphone.png
    icon-Photos.png becomes icon.png
    [email protected] becomes [email protected]

    Folder icon, background image, task switcher icons, dock shadow, multitask shadow, and Rotation Lock
    in [/b]/bundles/com.apple.springboard[/b] rename these files
    FolderIconBG.png becomes FolderIconBG~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes FolderIconBG@2x~iphone.png
    FolderSwitcherBG.png becomes FolderSwitcherBG~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes FolderSwitcherBG@2x~iphone.png
    RotationLockButton.png becomes RotationLockButton~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes RotationLockButton@2x~iphone.png
    RotationUnlockButton.png becomes RotationUnlockButton~iphone.png
    [b[[email protected] becomes RotationUnlockButton@2x~iphone.png[/b]
    SwitcherIconShadow.png becomes SwitcherIconShadow~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes SwitcherIconShadow@2x~iphone.png
    WallpaperIconDockShadow.png becomes WallpaperIconDockShadow~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes WallpaperIconDockShadow@2x~iphone.png

    Maps Icon
    again ~iphone has been added to the icon names
    in /bundles/com.apple.Maps
    icon.png becomes icon~iphone.png
    [email protected] becomes icon@2x~iphone.png

    Contacts Icon
    in /bundles/com.apple.MobileAddressBook
    icon.png
    [email protected]

    In order to enabled you folder wallpaper and switcher graphics there are now 4 files that need to be deleted in /var/mobile/Library/caches

    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.0
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.1
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.2
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.3

    After that respring and you will see the changes

    Pretty sure this is everything. Need to look around more, but it is a good start. Feel free to post any more findings and I will update the first post.

    Again if you want the only full ios4.2.1 theme, go pick up iDivinorumHD from the modmyi repo in Cydia!! Lots of great changes coming for that so get it now and enjoy it forever

    any idea what to name the custom dock?

    or how to enable auto icons?

    Thanks for the fixes listed, I seriously think Apple just changes the names to piss of jailbreakers

    Thanks, I somehow got those to work on 4.1 without doing that, but not on 4.2
    The dock has the reflection still and is too low, how should I fix this?

    forgot to clear my icon cache

    also do you know how to remove the overlay shadow while selecting an app, it's in a circle for some reason on mine.

    It's because that's the new dock that is only half your dock. The original Dock.png somehow doesn't work anymore which means you can't have a "full" dock. I don't know how to fix it.

    Probably the best idea is to not update to 4.2. It just seems like a lot of trouble for a very small update. If you have your SHSH blobs saved I believe you can downgrade.

    Your docked icons are way to high on the screen. Maybe resize the dock to half the size?

    Thanks for this post, I bookmarked it

    Just wanted to make a correction: When you said to change the Default.png's, in my theme they're named as "[email protected]" and "[email protected]", respectively (and they are confirmed working). So the names would then be:

    Default-Camera@2x~iphone.png
    Default-Photos@2x~iphone.png

    Correct? I have no way of testing this - I'm still on 4.1.

    the camera has to move to com.apple.camera and it becomes [email protected] and in the mobile slideshow copy Default-Photos@2x~iphone.png to [email protected]

    Ah, there's a little confusion here, sorry.

    The default screens are the images that show when the app is loading, which is what I'm talking about.

    What you're suggesting is that I change the springboard icons from "Default-Photos" (the loading screen) to "icon", which isn't right.

    I think you mean "[email protected]" gets moved/changed to [email protected].
