    Default UIImages Problem
    Why is it that every time I try to theme uibuttonbar buttons in UIImages they always come out only white..when I SSH a colored image with these names they still come out as white..
    If anyone doesn't know what these buttons are, they are the bottom bar buttons in the safari app photos app and mail app...Is there any way around this??

    I had a look at this. I too found that these images continued to be displayed white. It is displaying the modded image but appears white. I also I took off the "@2x" part of the file name to check it was displaying the modded image and the image size was increased confirming the WB theme overriding the Apple UIkit. Could this be an issue with Winterboard or perhaps a style code applied via the apple iOS? I thought it might have been a caching issue but I don't believe it is.

    Another option is to pack your own images and encrypt them via Dave Pecks tool and put it back into your phone to replace the default [email protected] file. Only problem is the themed images need to be exactly the same file size for it to work.

    UPDATE: managed to put those 5 images in with the Shared@2x png directory and then encrypt as a "artwork" file SSHed that file back into my phone BUT still no luck with changing the colour of those UIButtonBar images...someone must know the answer to this...

    I always thought that maybe there is a UIImage that gives uibuttonbar buttons a white overlay so I've been trying to look for a white image in The artwork...but no luck....maybe it's true but idk..

    I also had a look. It's hard to say really. Seems odd tho that I replaced my original [email protected] file with the modded UI buttons and they still displayed white. Yet this png will theme "[email protected]" just via Winterboard. Maybe it's a white overlay like u said but I couldn't find it.
