    Hey all. I'm trying to change the folder background in a theme, but nothing's working. (Apple changed something around in 4.2.1)

    3GS running 4.2.1

    I can get the folder icon to change, but not the folder background image.

    Changing FolderSwitcherBG.png in your theme used to work, but not now. I've placed it here: \Bundles\ but no dice. I've renamed it FolderSwitcherBG~iphone.png and still nothing.

    Note: I've placed a FolderIconBG~iphone.png in the same directory and it works as expected. Just can't get FolderSwitcherBG.png or FolderSwitcherBG~iphone.png to show up.

    Any pointers?

    Found it:
    delete from:


    if there is more than one delete them too and respring, if a respring doesn't work delete them again and reboot

    Thanks Sedrick, been trying to figure that one out for a while.

    It also works if u just add something like a .bak to the end of the files instead of deleting them incase u want to use them again.

    I really think Apple is up to something (themes perhaps) with all these changes. Doesn't make sense they'd go to all this trouble otherwise...
