Thread: Shadow/Overlay in Dock and Multitasking Dock

  1. #1
    Default Shadow/Overlay in Dock and Multitasking Dock
    I'm having some problems with all themes in ios 4. All the icons in my dock have a dark greyish shadow around them, as if they're being pressed. Also, a double tap of the home button pulls up the multi-tasking toolbar thing and all the icons there have that too.

    Any way to fix that?

    I've tried searching the forums and most of the stuff people have posted doesn't work.

    HELP! It looks ugly!

    EDIT

    Alright looks like I got the dock stuff worked out. The shadow file thing worked for most people (see below) and I had to just manually change the wallpapericonshadow files.

    Still no solution found for getting the shadows outa the multitasking toolbar. Perhaps anyone knows where to look or at least what it'd be called in ios 4

    I noticed that on a project I'm working on. I haven't seen it in the dock only in the multitask bar and it is happenin to all themed icon even mail phone and other icons that don't use the AppStore mask

    Use file and look for a folder called SpringBoard scroll down and look for shadow png and rename them or just put the number 1 before the (shadow1.png) I had the same problem tweaked around and found it and I got iclocktopia working and it had shadows over it now it's good.

    Also, anyone find an answer to the multitask dock shadows?

    Is this the folder you went too?

    System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    It's in there and there are a lot of files in there

    Yeah, I looked and it wasnt there. I ended up just changing the WallpaperIconDockShadow files and making them transparent in Photoshop instead of gray and SSHed em in and it worked.

    Still looking for a fix for the multitask dock. I figure its similar to the shadows in coreservices somewhere. Any ideas on what the files would be called.

    It also seems like I've messed up the color of the text of the doc icons. They're black now and tough to see. Any ideas?

    I found the files. But how do you make them go away??

  13. #13
    You just either delete the files or change the name ( ie add a"1" to the file name) in case u want it later

    I made a quick WinterBoard theme for anyone that doesn't want to manually go and replace the files,

    Oh,

    Keyboards are tough. I don't think the keyboard tricks are working for iOS4 yet.

    Part of the issue is winderboard is not really set up for iOS4/4g phone yet.
    But keyboards were complicated in the 3x version too.

    Sorry

    Thanks galaxygrrl. Is this why sliders and badges downloaded from Cydia and applied through WinterBoard don't yet work under iOS4?

    Where would I go to add this in for Winterboard?? Sorry I'm a newb at this.

    Using openssh, I've modified the .png files like said posts above but still have the squarish shadow around my 5 icon dock. Using the Glass orb theme.

    TIA

    Chris

    *Edit* This is on iPhone4

    And I made one for badges. Just switch out the badges to be one you want. Make sure the image size is 60x60 which means you need to double the sizes of the old badges.

    Just look a couple posts down on this thread.
