    the mask isn't anything that shows the mask is what cuts down your icon image so that it fits within the border. It does this by using gray scale the darker the gray the more transparent the image so black is fully transparent (can not be seen) and white is fully visible. the shadow yes on the deice is under the image because it is the shadow by default skin it is just a dark shadow under the icon that you see. we just change the shadow image to contain the border we want to use and then we use the mask to trim the image to fit inside of the shadow. I'm not really sure what you are asking but it sounds to me that you just ahven't made your mask to cut the image enough to show the shadow underneath

    here you go:
    @TCcentex, I'm having this very same problem. The shadow doesn't seem to be taking...getting square icons. I have no idea what's wrong. Png's are 24 with transparency.

    I'm having a weird issue here. I'm on an iPhone 4 using 4.1 and I can get the AppIconMask to work fine. My issue is that it seems the AppIconShadow is underneath the original app image. I found this out by inverting my mask in order, then I can see my shadow, since the mask takes out the original app image. Am I doing something wrong here? I'm really at a loss for words...

    Big thanks to the folks running this thread .. My theme was driving me nuts because I was missing a couple of icons and they looked a bit bare .. Removed everything in the Icons folder except for the stock icons from Apple and Cydia .. ran iWipeCache .. did they AutoSkin steps and Perfection! Thanks!

    Can we get specifics on skinning folders? I use the iBox Carbon theme for my icons and would like to have my folders be something other than the stock Apple look.

    The folder images are in springboard.app you just make whatever you want the folder to look like and name it FolderIconBg.png or with the @2x for retina display. The size is the size of an icon

    Trying not to sound dumb here but what is the path for 'springboard.app'?

    In a theme it's Bundles/com.apple.springboard the real location is System/Library/core services/SpringBoard.app

    I had the same issue and resolved it this way.

    In Photoshop, select save for web. Save both shadow and mask as PNG-24. Enable transparency for the shadow. Disable transparency for the mask.
