    Switch it up a bit or leave it how it is? Lately I've been digging stock. Discuss.

    I customize in terms of icon arrangement and just about everything else.

    sans winterboard, i made the dock transparent, and changed the battery charging graphic. i left all the other stuff stock.

    i like running without winterboard, and these two small tweeks are enough to make me feel like my phones 'different enough' ;)

    I like to put my most used apps in the front.... I never put a 3rd party app on the 1st page though. It's some weird OCD thing. :eek:

    I do. I have my own theme, that I've made by combining icons and a wallpaper I like. I organize my apps by page; first page is apps I use daily, 2nd is regular apps, 3rd is stock apps, 4th is games :)

    I like keeping my homescreen pretty low key, so people have to do a double take to realize its custom. I have all custom icons, a semi transparent dock... actually it looks like this

    I like to spruce it up a bit compared to stock, definitely had to put the att carrier logo, as well as wifi logo and the 3g flame that takes its place. Battery percent meter is definitely a plus, and idk why but I prefer no labels on the 5 icon dock apps. Finished it up with the MGS Grey background as well as all the sounds for sms and email, and it works perfectly as a stand-in until I get my regulation CODEC from Otacon (sorry about all the MGS references!)

    I keep my home screen completely default. I have no idea why, but I prefer all of "Apple's" applications to stay put. The next page is my applications such as Evernote, Pandora, MLB, etc. My third page is all games.

    I try to keep it very nice and clean so when other people use my iPhone it isn't hard for them to figure out where there favorite game is. :p

    Lol, that's the exact reason why I also downloaded "Un-unlockable" right away ;). Didn't matter though, the gf figured it out right away and called me stupid for trying that.

    edit: Idk who doesn't know, but Un-unlockable hides the "slide to unlock" bar and slider, so it's just the background

    I used this for a while as well. Rather than to trick people, I found it showcased the wallpaper better. Anyhow, there's a new one that came out on Cydia recently that disguises your lockscreen as a springboard full of icons. The bottom left Music icon is your slider. Pretty tricky. Unfortunately, there's only an iPod springboard available.

    Oh well. I suppose it's designed to fool people who don't know the difference anyway.

    I agree, but I really liked dockflow in 2.2.1 when it went from left to right Safari, SMS, Phone, Mail, iPod. I don't know if I could handle the new version, is it easy to get a grasp of?

    there are 3 or 4 different layouts to use. It doesn't tell you the order tho so you just have to check them all out and see what you like. I didn't use it before 3.0 So I can't compare it to that.

    You forgot the most important piece of info, the name of this theme. I like it a lot. Might replace my glass orb I've been using forever.

    im constantly changing/customizing/modifying my homescreen(and every other screen for that matter....lol). its not that i dont like the stock look of the iPhone; its just after seeing the same icons, lockscreens, etc., for over two years, it just started to look plain. so i finally decided that the best thing to do was to jailbreak so i can make my iPhone look like MyPhone. so heres what i have as of right now.....Glass Orb theme w/ amora dock flow. a few modified icons. kasper font from fontswap. fireball 3G icon. removed the page dots and spotlight search icon. digital signal bar. custom carrier logo. and a wallpaper i got from Background(App store).

    How did you get the icons reflected? Is that part of the icon, or is that an actual effect?
