    Hey guys

    Okay so I was just wondering, what are you doing guys if you get a theme that all the apps aren't themed? Do you just let it with the few themed app? Do you theme them yourself or what?

    Also, if a theme uses like Overlays on the app (as such as Illumine), this will only add the layeron apps that are added after the installation of the theme. Is there a way to make my apps installed before get that overlay? Or do I need to put it manually? (is it possible directly from the iPod if I use iFile?)


    Thanks

    It works on all apps regardless of whether they were added before or after.

    No...When I use a theme with an icon overlay, it puts the template on all the icons, regardless of when I got them.

    Well I know for me I keep all the themed icons together, then starting on the next page I start with the unthemed icons. Keeps it pretty uniform. Of course a lot of times templates are included and icons can be easily themed to be uniform but I'm happy segregating them.

    And yeah, overlays apply to all App Store apps.

    Yes, I TRY to create the missing icons. I think you posted in my thread and gave feedback for the Dropbox icon. However I am an amateur so theming is difficult, long and tedious. Plus I use GIMP, which makes it even more difficult.


    Okay, so, the themes with icon overlays that convert all icons into theme icons...well convert ALL AppStore and native app icons into theme icons (I don't think it does so with jailbroken apps). In order to apply the theme to all icons, you have to delete the icon caches through SSH or iFile. Browse to /var/mobile/Library/Caches/ and delete the following folders...

    SpringBoardIconCache
    SpringBoardIconCache-small

    Well if you open the theme folder (if downloaded as .theme, change the extension to anything else) somewhere in the folders, usually in plain site, there should be a Template.psd or anything with a .psd extension. Of course it will only include a template if the creator includes one, and not all creators include them.
