    I noticed this, if u get time check the app's folder contents as they call on a default image which might not be themed. The iPhone then builds the app image from a set of images once initialized. I found once I themed both the "default" image and all the images that make up the default app image it was no longer an issue. This is common for most if not all apps e.g settings menu, mail, compass, VoiceMemos, clock etc all draw on a default image and then build the default image again but so we can interact with it. Hope that makes sense

    Yip at first I found it annoying, if it is the same issue. When the app was launched the un-themed default image would display and then my themed app images would take over. I initially thought it was a WB issue...any probs let me know...

    The UI images are compressed and encrypted in the "[email protected]" file...there is a tutorial located here on extracting it http://modmyi.com/forums/general-iph...-tutorial.html

    Ok, most of the "default" images are contained with the actual app folder itself. These are titled "default" but not all. Have a look either with iFile or via SSH or however you want to. If there's particular ones you are after let me know. Some are contained within the apps framework which is found in System.
