    I just got the illumine theme for my iPhone 4 and the icons are pixelated because of the iphone's 324ppi. I'm kinda pissed, I'm gonna have to make all the icons over again.

    Yea the iPhone 4's res is 640 x 960. Compare that to everything before it at 320 x 480 and you'll realize why it looks funny. Like the two people above me said, time to find some HD themes my friend.

    Take all the icons and double them in Photoshop or whatever and put an @2x atthe end of the filename before the .png. I thought iPhone 4 icons would be 114x114 compared to older 57x57 but I have been told to make them 118x120. Then they will look just as clear as the stock icons

    time to make some HD themes. so clear it's awesome. This is why you don't rely on other people's work. Doing it yourself is the best way.

    even if you double all of the res of the icons they still look crap.
