Thread: Icons behind the Glass? how to get rid off...

    Default Icons behind the Glass? how to get rid off...
    Hi every one!!

    this is my first post, and i search over the forum to find a solutions to this but i did'nt know exactly how to look for...

    The thing is that i'm theming without winterboard.

    So i change several icons from my springboard.
    The thing is that some, shows exactly as png in windows and some has a glass on it.

    I'd also use the same icon (firefox) on different aplications and diferent result.
    It's more clear in the image...



    any help be preciated!

    Are changing the icon via WinterBoard or are you changing the stock icon in the app itself? Sometimes if you mod the icon in the app itself the OS thinks that it is the stock icon and places the "glass" mask on top by default.

    Exactly!
    i'm replacing the icon though ssh.

    In the aplications folder, look for the aplication (Perfect Browser for example) and replace the icon.png for other one.
    It's any way to make that mask transparent?

    o something?

    thanks!

    you could find the icon that does this i am pretty sure i found it i think it's in /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app it's called SBGenericAppIcon.png and maybe also SBGenericSmallAppIcon.png maybe those two things like make it automatically do the glass thing if you replace it witha transparent png then it'll probably work but it'll also make it so all other icons wont have it this is just a guess i've never tried and i havn't heard of it but it's worth the shot sorry if it doesn't work

    With the help of some nice people, I managed to get rid of the glass effect without Winterboard.

    Thank you both!

    I'd try the santaf proposal but nothing happen. Inclusive i delete the incons cache.

    The i'd try the ccaroline solution

    go to the info.plist of my glossy aplication..
    copy to pc.

    the converted to xml using (Binary — XML .plist converter - iAppCat)

    and added the lines:
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true\>
    then reemplace the info.plist for the original and respring.

    And the icon disappeared!

    I'm missing something? do i have to re convert xml to binary?

    You're sure you've added those two XML lines in a correct place, liike, let's say, right before </dict> ?

    Also, I have no experience with opening .plist files on a PC, but I'm sure Google knows

    Last but not least, you said the icon 'disappeared'. You sure you didn't apply too much of a mask somewhere?

    i'd put like this:
    ....
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    <string>English</string>
    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true\>
    <string>Browser</string>
    ..

    No that's not right. <key>KEYHERE</key> and <string>STRINGHERE</string> belong together as far as I know. Never put a new key between another key and its value (between the string tags).

    edit: Also pay attention to closing the true flag. It's <true\> and not <true>

    Like this should do it:

    ....
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    <string>English</string>
    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <string>Browser</string>
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true\>
    ..

    well... i must doing something wrong...
    this is how i left it.
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    <string>English</string>
    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <string>Browser</string>
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true\>

    This is the info.plist from the app folder (perfect browser) not a system folder right?

    i guess the problem must be from the conversion back to binary (that i'm not doing) or so.

    can anyone confirm this with a pc?

    The very last line <true\> is incorrect. It should be <true/>. Change the backslash to a forwardslash. That should fix the problem.

    There is a much simpler way to do this I discovered last night. Not at home so I can't give details. Will do so when I get home this evening though.

    I found a icon (Im+) that i cant change doing the same thing.
    Can you post what you discover please Kariodude ?

    The method I found is flawed. I just replaced the two files that overlay the shadow and glare with transparent images. It only seems to effect some icons and not others.
