    I have a jailbroken iPhone 3G with os 4.1.

    I went and installed a theme and activated it with winterboard. The wallpaper worked fine, but all of my icons were stock, not the custom icons that came with the theme. The only icon that did work correctly was the winterboard icon. After digging around with iPhone browser, I noticed most of the files had @2x in the file name. I removed that and everything is working correctly, other than two things.

    1) my Facebook icon has a background, instead of being transparent like it should be.

    2) my cydia icon won't change. Even after renaming it.

    How can I fix those things?

    for cydia I think its a matter of restarting the phone
    for the other, you must remove a shadow png apple puts behind all icons somewhere in the phone. google.

    I've already tried rebooting my phone and google hasn't been a lot of help.

    I managed to get rid of the black background after renaming a few things, but im stumped on the cydia thing.

    It's located under this folder

    kirbyseoic.theme>Bundles>com.saurik.Cydia>icon.png

    Is that correct?

    Edited to add: I've spent the last while renaming the icon various places. I've tried to add an Icons folder to the theme with a Cydia.png image inside, I've tried iWipe cache and nothing has worked.

    I would really appreciate it if someone can give some help.

    What you could do is go to the actually applications folder (not in your theme) and find the cydia app folder, then inside there replace the actually icon itself. This will overwrite your original so make sure to back it up first! I believe the name of the icon is "icon.png" or "icon@2x.png" depending if you have a 3gs or iPhone 4.

    I've tried that as well, and it still didn't change.
