    First, enable homescreen wallpapers and multitasking on your iPhone 3G/iPod touch 2G! This guide is also for all devices; older devices will probably need it more however.

    Homescreen Wallpapers+Multitasking Thanks to Mr Dodi!

    Remove every file that has a capitol "T" at the end or a -72. This will eliminate the iPad files and clean up your Springboard.app so you can actually look through it and find the overlays.

    SSH into your device and go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app. You will need to remove some images but be SURE to have back-ups just in-case you might want them back

    Remove these in addition to the ones above for maximum speed in all aspects of your device.

    • FolderShadowBottom~iphone.png-the shadow on the bottom of a folder.
    • FolderShadowNotch~iphone.png-the shadow of the arrow that points to the folder you opened.
    • FolderShadowTop~iphone.png-the shadow on top of an open folder.
    • SBBadgeBGMask~iphone.png-when an application with a badge is pressed, this makes the notification press to.
    • SBDockMask~iphone.png-Apples reflective dock.
    • spotlight-full~iphone.png-The background shawdow that pops up when a push notification is received. Remove this, and 1, it will be faster. 2, you will still be able to finish what you were doing under the notification.
    • spotlight-keyboard~iphone.png-Same thing^^ But when a keyboard is active.
    • SwitcherIconShadow~iphone.png-shadow under icons in the multitasking bar.
    • SwitcherShadowTop~iphone.png-the shadow on top of the switcher.
    • WallpaperIconDockShadow~iphone.png-shadow under icons in the dock with wallpapers enabled.
    • WallpaperIconShadow~iphone.png-the shadow under icons when wallpapers are enabled.
    • WallpaperGradientPortraitTop~iphone.png-The shadow on the homescreen behind the statusbar/upper screen.
    • WallpaperGradientPortraitBottom~iphone.png-The shadow on the homescreen behind the dock.

    could someone post a screenshot comparison before and after?

    Also, is it possible to keep the shadow around the names of the apps?

    thanks

    Well not really.. Winterboard displays the image on the springboard. What this does is it removes a bunch of underlays Apple put in there to make it look nicer. It slows the device down a lot, so if you remove those you can use it nativly. Personally WinterBoard is the way to go, this is still terribly slow even with them removed. Try it without first and then you will see what I mean.
