    Are either "no docked icon labels" or "no undocked icon labels" checked in winterboard?

    No they shouldn't, they would cause what your seeing. Try turning them on, respring then turn them off.

    I tried that when I selected the text was gone entirely, when i unchecked them text was back to grey and barely visible

    any other idea what could be causin it and how to fix it?

    Edit: tried instaling/uninstalling winterboard while rebooting and still the same problem. as soon as winterboards installed text becomes grey.

    No fontswap or anything like that? Have you tried fully uninstalling Winterboard and seeing if the problem persists? If it is fine after try reinstalling.

    Hmmm not quite sure then. Winterboard greys the names of my dock icons but only when I turn on the no docked icon labels. Of course mines a 3GS not a 4.

    bobright, I didn't quite understand your edit. Does uninstalling fix it?

    ^^No that didnt work

    but i did some messing around and what did work and make the text for icons become normal again was turning OFF Summerboard Mode. Not sure if I should have done that or not but text is white/normal like it should be. Hopefully turning off Summerboard Mode wont cause any problems?

    Hmm, maybe for some old themes I guess? Just test out your favourite themes and see if they work properly with summberboard mode off.

    You may run into problems with summerboard mode turned off. Most themes use it.

    Since i have been on 4.0.1 i really like the phone the way it is the only thing i have been messing with is the folder themes. i added the weather elements v3. i like it alot but its buggy

    i really think u might be on to something becouse ,i thought summer board was for most older themes. Saurik was the creator of Winterboard. all themes we should use all have to 4.0 up?

    every time i add a non 4.0 theme my dock goes in the bottom of the screen.

    The docks from older themes aren't really compatible with ios 4. You can go to var/stash/themes/"your theme" and delete the dock.png

    Its really weird because i now have enabled Summerboard Mode w/ a theme installed through winterboard and text is showing white as normal.

    But say if I go into winterboard and disable themes - the text then goes to grey/blurry again. I do not know what the problem is but I hope a major updated Winterboard rolls around.

    Basically if I have Winterboard installed and no themes enabled I get grey text. If Winterboard is installed but I have a theme enabled text shows regular. Is this normal?

    I just noticed another thing why is that with Winterboard installed all the text on the App icons lose the shadow behind them? If you can see the text does not have a shadow behind it like the stock lettering does - why is this?



    Edit: this is whether I have a theme enabled or not, it is when Winterboard is simply installed. If I delete Winterboard entirely text reverts to normal.
