    114x114. Must I always use the standard size of 118 by 120 for jb icons?

    JB icons are a mixed bag. Usually if the tweak is installed to /var/stash/Applications then 118x120px as all Apple's icons are that size by default. But there is always an exception to the rule. Best way to cover your bases if the icon doesn't theme is to create a 114x114 px version & then also place that same 114x114px icon on a 118x120px transparent canvas. Then you have both options covered.

    That's just what I have found when theming.

    Hey guys. I jailbroke my ipad mini and am having one heck of a time trying to get my icon images to change. I'm adding my favorite images to /var/stash/Themes.PZLTqT/Chris-Test/Bundles. Right now I have 2 folders in there, com.apple.Music~ipad and com.apple.Videos. I named the files icon~ipad.png, resprung and nothing. I cleared out the icon cash and it still doesn't work. I added a .theme after Chris-Test and it doesn't work. It works when I just go to /var/stash/Applications.2IWioo/Videos.app and change the default image to icon~ipad_1.png and the image I want to use as icon~ipad.png, but I don't know why it won't work in my custom theme. Any help here would be great.

    What size are your icons? At a guess as I don't have a Mini the Icons should be 72x72 pixels but placed on a transparent canvas of 74x76 pixels.

    Make sure the icon sizing is the same as what you're wanting to theme.

    Would they still appear if they are the wrong size?

    And why would they be the right size if I put them right into /var/stash/Applications.2IWioo/MobileSMS.app or something similar. I changed my whole dock this way and they all look right.

    Thanks for the quick response and the help. I normally JB my phone but updated it beyond 6.1.2.

    You don't need .theme on the end, works either way.

    Create this:

    Chris-test/Folders/Videos.app

    And name your images:

    icon~iPad.png

    Then open winterboard and toggle your theme off and on and then respring.

    You have your Bundle IDs wrong too.

    com.apple.Music
    com.apple.videos

    EXACTLY that way. They are case sensitive.

    Should they be the same text and cases as they are for the Music.app and Videos.app? I only ask because for my iPad mini, the music app shows Music~ipad.app which is why I made it that way. I'll try it all though. Thanks.

    YES, refer to the first post of this thread if unsure. I explained in detail in regards to the "Bundles" ID method. You need to obey the CFBundleID found in the Info.plist of each app. Not the App name. Unless you wish to theme via "Folders" method

    I tried that earlier so I could change my youtube icon. I found com.google.ios.youtube in the plist, changed the icon names to how they were called out in the plist, made a bundles folder, made a com.google.ios.youtube folder and put all of the icons in that folder and that didnt work either. I'll give this all a shot tonight though. This is the first time I've jailbroken since iOS 5 so I'm still getting the rust off. Thanks for the help and being patient. Trying to remember it all!

    Is it possible to ensure an icon doesn't have the mask? I'm using e6 so naturally all icons have the e6 mask, but I have an icon that I don't want the mask to apply to.

    The mask will always be applied to AppStore apps but never to Cydia apps.

    Mine is an appstore app. So there's no way of circumventing the mask for that icon?

    It is possible if you theme it with the SummerBoard method.

    Underneath I put a folder in the root of my theme. Named it 'Icons'. In it I put two copies of my icon I named 'Waze.png' and '[email protected]

    Respringed in WinterBoard after toggling theSummerBoard compatible mode on.

    Yeah, that will work, but yuck! Summerboard mode? C'mon Al, your better than that bro!

    You can use the summerboard mode that Al recommends, but it will render your ability to control your icon labels useless. Plus it's slow. I would use an unframed image and just allow the mask to do its thing. If the icon is from a theme, just go to that thread and see if they will make you one unframed.
