How to remove black square?

I cant for the life of me remember how to remove the black square around the instagram icon. Can someone please tell me the file(s) name and location? I already have the icon shadows removed so I do not need help with that.

Thanks for the help

Springboard Modification

I have read about two ways to do this. 1st is to get a transparent png file, SSH into phone, and put it into theme.xxx folder under bundles\com.springboard.app and rename them as following:


You will then have to go into winterboard and select theme.

If you are not using winterboard, you can always go SSH into phone, go to System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app and rename the files above to .bak instead of .png

I have found it much easier to do the second option. Make sure to respring to complete changes.
