    System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app is the location and SBBadgeBG.png is the file u wanna change.
    They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be.
    They only lack the light to show the way.
    For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I have sent them you... my only son.

    Its the same badge that is used in everything.

    There are two ways to do it, via customize or in springboard folder.

    /private/var/root/library/customize/badgeimage

    or

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app file SBBadgeBG.png

    After you change the file, respring or restart your phone for the changes to take effect

    Attached is a bunch of different colored badges.

    There are also smaller badges found in the Other.artwork folder. Decrypting and recompiling that file is a hassle.

    You can locate the badge.png image for the theme you want in the directory /var/stash/Themes/YourThemeName.theme/

    My SBBadgeBG.png was located in a folder names bundles, i just replaced that and then respring and it worked!
