    to change the folder icon, you need to make a file 59x50 and name it "FolderIconBG~iphone.png" (without the quotes).

    as for making it transparent, i've attached the file that i use. it lives in the "com.apple.springboard" folder found within the "Bundles" folder.

    ***Important***
    for the above to work, you must delete a few files. after you have SSH the file to the "com.apple.springboard" folder, navigate your way to "private/var/mobile/Library/Caches" and delete the following files (dont panic, it is safe to delete these files. after your re-spring, these files will be remade).
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.0
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.1
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.2
    com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen.3

    after you delete the files. re-spring. your folder mods should now work.
