    Tried overwriting the "foldericon" and "folderswitcher" background images in usual: "system/library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app"

    Does only the Icon image and not the switcher image....Maybe a Ios 4.1 issue and not specifically Limera1n...

    Anyone else tried ?

    Noticed this as well, it is weird because my Winter board skinned the wallpaper correctly on this 4.1 jailbreak (in 4.0 it did not) but now my folder switcher is not skinned.

    Just as a side note, I noticed that Winter board now recognizes an HD Notified image.

    Make sure you have a theme in place that is replacing the folder background. The phone will then pull that file and use it for the switcherlinen.

    i can't get this to work... i deleted that file but when i respring nothing happens, and that file does not recreate... ???

    edit: powered off and now the file is back, but its still the stock image... i am using a theme that is supposed to replace the folder background and folder switcher images... are these all still named the same?
