    Hey guys,
    For my next theme I would like all the icons on the springboard to have no gloss on, to be square (like in categories) and I want to put a small border around it with some lines over the actual square icon itself, is this possible? if so, is it complicated?

    hum, are you talking about the appiconoverlay that usually adds gloss to app store icons?

    if so, those only work for app store apps, and it's the dev's choice whether or not to use the overlay or add their own (so it only works on some app store apps-the mask works for all tho)

    so you couldn't make your own square icons and put them in winterboard and have them use the appiconoverlay/shadow/mask

    Thanks for the reply, I didn't mean for itto sound like I wanted to make icons, then put overlays (or masks, whatever they are) on, I just wanted to make my own overlay and put it on apps on the springboard, like the theme 'alit', it has masks
