    Winterboard hasn't been updated for 4.1 as of yet. There are a couple of changes to the way images are named from my understanding of a couple posts Ive read. I'm going to check it out on my phone today through SSH. The best solution until there's a Winterboard update may be to do it manually.

    Hey fe_tech53 I found some themes at modmyi.com/forums/iPhone-4-new-skins-themes-launches that have been specifically designed for the iphone4. It appears that the problem isn't winterboard it's the themes themselves. With all of the file name/location changes older themes will mostly not be compatible with IPhone 4. iPhone 4 compatible themes can be found at several locations. Mp2 and fiftyfoodshadowsHD are a couple that I am currently running without problem on my iPhone 4.1. Hope this helps.

    ^ I have those themes as well, but mine are not working properly. For mp2, it looks as though i'm missing a few app skins, including phone and messages. The wall paper isn't coming up, and the lock slider isn't happening.

    I'd have to look at the way you have your directory set up to check it out. Do you know your way around iFile/SSH? If so a screen shot of /var/stash/Themes.***** and /var/stash/Themes.*****/MP2-iPhone4.theme would help us figure this out. But I don't think you should have summerboard switched on.

    Summerboard is switched on... I'll ssh in soon and let u know what I come up with

    With summerboard switched off, none of the icons are themed... except winterboard.

    WTF.

    After SSHing into the device, I realized its missing the actual icons in the Icons folder.

    Ha! That could be a problem! And as someone stated earlier, WB is fine...its the older themes that aren't working correctly on ip4. Currently, I am 99% done completely upgrading the Acute theme for my ip4!

    Alright dudes, I'm gonna do the unthinkable and create my own theme. Basically, create the folder under themes... and the icons folder. I got this.

    Does anyone know the size and res the icons are supposed to be created at? For the iphone 4

    @Ice0004
    R u making a complete theme or just icons?
    Icons are 118x120 with a max res of 600 px/in (I think)! These are labeled: "appname"@2x.png (eg. [email protected]). Place them all in a folder named Icons.

    BTW, I'm going off the top of my head here! These instructions are for creating high res DISPLAY icons after you've created your original @2x icons.

    After you've created these in Photoshop (PS), click:
    -File (in PS) then select Process Multiple images.
    -Choose ur Icons folder as the original location & destination.
    -DO NOT USE THE 'SAME AS FOLDER' check box!!!
    -Keep the Directory name + select .png as the extension.
    -towards the bottom, it will show u the icon size. Change the drop down menu next to this to display Percent. Since your original icon is 100%, you now have to change it to 50% since this is what your phone will actually display. Then click OK or PROCESS or whatever it is on the left of the box!
    -Make a folder with your Theme name
    -Place ur Icons folder in your theme folder.
    -SSH in, and place your Theme folder in /var/stash/Themes directory. Respring and select in WB! Hope that helps!

    That sounds wonderful, and extremely useful. I consider you a friend. Thanks!

    I'm gonna start off simple. Just icons and wall papers.

    Thank you

    I just edited that post! The com...springboard folder is for something else. BTW, do the same for ur wallpaper to get a high res image but I don't know the dimensions/resolution for that. Good luck!

    *I don't think auto-masking works with Apples Default icons and Cydia app icons but I could be wrong....
