    Uninstalling in Installer for themes and such does not remove the icon, it just places the theme name back into install. The only way to get rid of the icon style is to override the icons with new icons(install another theme).

    I explained in my post about the new Aqwoah_1.4 and rSBT. Once you had the theme in you should have gone to rSBT and hide the ones you didn't want. Uninstalling isn't always the thing to do, especially with things like the springboard.

    You are probably going to have to go into WinSCP and put a new DisplayOrder.plist and make sure you have a installer icon in the folder for installer. Others have run into problems when uninstalling SummerBoard, so I am not sure if what I said is going to work.

    On mine I took a screenshot of the springboard home as it was. I opened that in photoshop and selected the dock (it was 320x91 I believe), then I copied that area of the background and made it into a new image, which I saved as the dock background. Doing this makes sure its pixel-perfect.

    Here is a basic template for creating a seamless wallpaper/dock for Summerboard.

    I paste the background image I want onto this template , lower the transparency of the image alittle so I can see the red/black of the template then I crop the sections out and paste to a new image. Works (almost) perfect.



    Example :

    Can someone post some simple instructions on how to upload your edited wallpaper/dock combo?

    or simply how to set dock to transparent?

    r00t just did. You're gonna have to know a little Photoshop.

    My method is not 100 perfect but gets you in the right direction.

    the way i'm trying to do it is opening the wallpaper in photoshop, going to Image > Canvas Size and setting pixels to 320x91 and anchoring at bottom. This basically crops the size to the dock and then I save the remaining image as SBDockBG2.png interlaced, drop it into the Springboard folder.

    Still, there's a small discrepancy in brightness, the top portion seems a bit darker for some reason even though I didn't adjust anything. I don't know what I'm doing wrong here. Also I am using SummerBoard 1.5.

    A good feature would be to set the homescreen picture as a seperate picture. Now it just looks for the lockdown image , they should have it read a picture in a separate location so we can adjust the brightness of the image and not mess up our lock down. Like make it read /var/root/homescreen/wallpaper.png or something.

    I actually had the same problem with all those icons, easiest fix is to use Finder to delete all those other icons

    Some simple direction for getting your Springboard and Dock background to look exactly right using Photoshop.

    First you will need to find an image that you want as your complete background. It is very important to use an image that is 320 x 480 for this to work or look completely perfect.

    Once you have found the image you are going to use, open it in Photoshop and highlight and select the whole image. Now copy that to your clipboard. (Edit -> Select All, then Edit -> Copy)

    Next you want to create a new image that is 320x91 pixels in Photoshop. (New -> Image). Now paste the background on top of your new image.

    To get the dock to look just right, select the drag tool and drag the background image until you are lined up with the bottom of the new image. (At this stage you can also use your own custom dock. I have mine to include a small dock like what comes with Leopard)

    Now save the file as SBDockBG2.png and upload this file to your iPhone. To make the wallpaper image, just safe your new background as LockBackground.jpg and upload this to your iPhone as well. (Make sure you keep your wallpaper at 320x480 so it covers your whole screen when locked. )

    Hope this is helpful!!!

    Perhaps an easier method is to install iSwitcher and choose the OEM theme

    The second pic is suppose to show you that the line is there, and that the additional applications seem to just appear from behind the main dock icons.

    Didn't read the post correctly, yeah if you want to go back to the original iswitcher is great. I still liked the icons in the theme, just not all the extra ones that where placed. The best way I found to remove those was the finder app.

    Damn, I really liked the dimmed background image! Most wallpapers are just way too distracting to be used under all those icons. Its results in an eyesore that pulls your eyes in every direction.

    Anyone know how to mod the SummerBoard.app so that it dims again? Anyone!?

    This worked for me, thank you! I was doing everything right with creating the dock but my problem was, I was setting a wallpaper from within the iPhone > Settings > Wallpaper which I believe the iPhone does its own sort of masking instead of saving the wallpaper as LockBackground.jpg.

    Now my wallpaper is seamless.

    An easier way to create the dock from a wallpaper is first to save that wallpaper as Lockbackground.jpg then just go to Image > Canvas Size change the unit measurement to pixels, change the Width and Height to 320 and 91 respectively, and at the bottom click on the arrow pointing down. This will create the 320x91 dock without having to copy and paste, create a new document, and move it around so it lines up.

    Thanks for everyone's help on this!

    personally, i would agree with him. i find that the shaded background was nicer as it wasn't as visually distracting.

  21. #199
    I agree, that dimmer was better. The best solution would be to make it user configurable. I guess I'm getting old and just like simple and elegant as opposed to my old Nextel days of Loud and Showy....
