    I've seen plenty of screenshots with the glass orb dock, but only see the complete theme on cydia. How would I go about getting the dock without the rest of the theme? Do I need to tweak it through SSH or is there a slicker way?

    I have done the same thing that you are asking, and yes, you have to customize it through SSH.

    First jailbreak, then install Glass Orb and Five Icon Dock through Cydia

    Then install DiskAid on your computer (Mac) to SSH.

    Connect iPhone to Computer via USB

    Open DiskAid, in bottom left hand corner, choose 'root' folder.

    Then select... Var / Stash / Themes / Glass orb.theme / Icons

    Once in the icons folder, delete all the icons except the following...
    Dock prefs.png
    phone (1st position).png
    sms touch.png
    ipod (3rd position).png

    Just to be safe, right click the icon folder and select 'copy to mac.' This way you have a backup of the original Glass Orb Icon theme incase you change your mind.

    I erased all other Glass Orb themes that were installed onto Winterboard.

    Attached is a screenshot of what mine looks like.

    Hope this helps!

    take these attached files and replace the dock.png in your current themes folder, then put the other 5 icons in your current themes ICON folder. :D

    Thanks, that's badass! Do you have any other icons for that dock also? I've seen a few variations on them (like safari and the ipod, I think).

    heres the only other ipod icon i have. there is another. it was an headphones icon. here's a picture of it: . if you want that icon youd either have to download glass orb color from cydia or have someone upload the icon. i personally like the tiny ipod icon so i deleted the rest.

    How do you navigate to this current themes folder? I'm having trouble finding it.

    Tried searching for an answer, but this post was the closest I got.

    I just recently JB'ed and installed 5 icon dock then Glass Orb Dock (dock only) theme. When I go to Winterboard to activate one of the Glass Orb dock themes, I get that on top of my original dock icons.

    What am I doing wrong?

    glass orb dock showing nothing!

    hey foks, i got a problem.....

    I want to install just the glass orb dock, so i downloaded just the dock, activated it in WB but nothing happens. I use Killsigncarbonblue theme, and the Glass orb dock is above it in WB. Are there any limitations in using that dock in combination with absinthe 2.0 JB on iOS 5.1.1

    I also use iconoclasm, maybe it has a conflict with that

    I just JB my iphone 3 days ago, making it my personal layout, so im kind of a noob on this, please help!!

    Might be a silly question, but did you respring?

    Also, probably a better idea to start a new thread rather than resurrect one that's 2.5 years old.
