    Hello All!

    I made an "Internet On/Off" icon for my Category app but i don't know how can i add it to categories, becauise it displays in Categories as a black icon.

    My icon size is: 200X64

    Can anyone help me?

    i dont think you can see them for choosing an icon, you have to just hit one of the blank spaces.

    but they are there, this is how mine looks right now

    Hey, it's looks great!

    I suppose your text is on wallpaper isn't it?

    But my text with the Icon png, maybe that's the problem.....?

    no, my text is in the icons. i didnt make them by the way. the credit goes to someone else on here (sorry, i dont remember which thread it was, it was a few days ago). i just modded them to have my own pictures on them. you then have to fill up the rest of the page with blank apps, and hide everything else with customize

    ehm yeah somthing like that, but marko's screenshot is more similar to mine theme.

    The fact is that i was trying to add my big icon to categories, and there was just a black space instead of my icon in categories,i chosed and it messed up my touch

    u can make big icon whatever size u want, but u must place it right so it'll be good in ur springboard, marko's way is just using blank apps

    oxxx
    oxxx
    oxxx
    oxxx

    oooo

    o=apss
    x=blank apps

    or maybe i'm wrong

    febern, there is a thread on here somewhere about "blanks". you just download and ssh them into your applications folder. if you need more then you can just copy on your pc.
    you have to be careful not to press that area though, because although they dont do anything, if you press that area it will come up with an icon and then it takes some time to get back to the springboard by holding the home button. so with mine i cant just press anywhere on that large icon, i still have to press where the picture part is. like 8Giga said, its app,blank,blank,blank
    app,blank,blank,blank etc. so if i pressed anywhere except icon position 1,5,9 etc i would get the blanks icon showing up (its like a large pixelated image of paper and a pencil)
