    I'm making a new semi-theme. it utilizes a custom icon mask for springboard icons. I created the mask, with the shape I wanted as white on a black background, and named it AppIconMask.png and put it in my theme's UIImages folder. the shadow and overlay I put in there show up fine, but the mask won't apply. am I doing something wrong?

    it has to have a black background, with that layer locked as the background

    hard to explain

    check in one my themes and i have a psd of the mask in the themeparts folder, then hide the white parts and insert your own and then merge it with the background

    yeah I did all that. and I fixed the problem. turns out the icon I was using as a base to help align my icon only had an image size of 57x57 px, and the icon mask HAS to be 59x60 px.

    anyway, I released my theme-let, so check the releases section.
