    Can anyone help me with the Backgrounder badges. I really dislike the default badge theme, and would like to change them.

    I downloaded couple from Cydia, and activeted the one i want to use from Winterboard.

    I still get the default backgrounder badge style...any help?

    The latest update to Backgrounder moved the badge image up a level in the directory tree. As a result, backgrounder themes have been broken. A workaround is manually to replace the image using SSH, iFile, DiskAid, or some other method (I used iFile). The file is called /var/stash/Applications.pwn/Background.app/badge.png. You can locate the badge.png image for the theme you want in the directory /var/stash/Themes.pute73/YourThemeName.theme/ (replacing YourThemeName with the name of your theme, of course).

    Lol, love it!

    What do you all have for your badges?

    For whomever wants a cool badge for Backgrounded apps, do a search for LeoBadge. You won't be disappointed!

    Dammit, now we lost it again with the new update. He says it's in the "apple.springboard bundle" but I can't find it...

    I can't find it either.
    I replaced the badge.png icon in the backgrounder folder but that didn't change it either.
    Anyone has a fix without winterboard?

    I think they added the 2nd badge.png because they added native capabilities.

    I have the iPhone 4, and I wanted to update the Backgrounder badge for the retina display. I was able to locate the image and upload the one i created, but the image isn't autoshrunk like many images on the iPhone 4. Does anybody know how to allow it to display at normal size?
