    Hey guys. I'm currently catching up with manually editing system files on my iPod Touch 4 (4.1 firmware

    ) So now I wanna show you these two things:

    1: Retina Winterboard Icon
    2: Multitaskbar and Folder-Background change

    You can do everything via SSH or iFile.

    Lets start with the Retina winterboard icon. You probably have noticed that the original icon is very pixely so lets change that.

    1. Go to /var/stash/Applications.xxxxxx/Winterboard.app

    2. Name the bigger icon from my Thumbnails: icon@2x.png

    3. Name the smaller icon from my Thumbnails: Icon-Small@2x.png

    4. Copy them both into the Winterboard.app folder and delete the original icon and Icon-Small png's.

    5. Go to System/Library/PreferenceBundles/WinterboardSettings.bundle

    6. Take the smaller icon from my Thumbnails icon@2x.png

    7. Copy it to the WinterboardSettings.bundle folder

    Now the Multitask and Folder Background mod:

    1. Create 3 empty Folders on your desktop
    1. Multitask_FolderBG
    2. Bundles
    3. com.apple.springboard

    2. Put "com.apple.springboard" into "Bundles" and then "Bundles" into "Multitask_FolderBG"

    3. Find a 480x960 picture (for example the one in my thumbnails) and put it into the "com.apple.springboard" folder.

    4. Drag the Multitask_FolderBG into /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx via SSH

    5. Activate in Winterboard let it respring.

    6. Go to /var/mobile/Library/Caches and delete com.apple.SpringBoard.folderSwitcherLinen

    Done! If you want to get back to normal, deactivate in Winterboard, respring and delete Linen again.

    If both are known or uninteresting, feel free to delete the thread

    Also, could anyone tell me if the Folder background mod has worked? I changed two or three things, so I'm not sure what changed it in the end. It is defo safe to test though.
