    Ever wanted to changed the colors of the lables under the app icons from grey to any color you want? This is how you do it:

    What's Needed:
    Winterboard
    iFile

    1. In iFile go to /var/stash/themes.

    2. Make a new folder called whatever you want.

    3. Then go into the folder you just made and now create a new plist file and name it info.plist.

    4. Now in info.plist write/paste this in it:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "[URL]http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd[/URL]">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>
    
    <key>UndockedIconLabelStyle</key>
    <string>color: [Color]</string>
    
    </dict></plist>
    Now replace [Color] with the color you want.


    5. Open Winterboard and activate the theme and respring and it's done!


    Tested Colors:
    White
    Green
    Purple
    Cyan
    Red
    Blue
    Yellow
