    Anyone of you know how to remove Apple's "Linen" background texture from folders, Siri and everywhere else?

    I've been able to replace Notification center with a transparent/ blurred background but no luck with folders and Siri because most of the tweaks are ugly colors or textures and provide no options so i can set my own colors or backgrounds.

    Any idea if there is a great tweak/ app for that?

    bump: I also want to just have a solid gray or black.

    If anyone knows of a tweak like this, that would be great

    For the Notification Centre

    Go to System/Library/Coreservices/Sprinboard.app and replace the old file with your wallpaper. The file name is BulletinListLinen-568h@2x.png

    The same directory again but the file for folders and app switcher (they both change with one file)


    Obviously, it needs to be the same size as the original file of bigger so keep that in mind. If you're using a theme go to Var/Stash/Themes/YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard and make the changes to the same files. All the files must be named as the originals were before you replaced them or it will not work.

    Blurred NC & Folders - this removes linen for a clean gray background in the notification center, folders and app switcher. Unfortunately does not affect Siri.

    As the above poster said the files responsible for the Notification Center and Folder/Switcher backgrounds are:


    In addition to backing up the above files and inserting your own themed versions, you will also need to delete (they recreate themselves, don't worry) the BulletinListLinenX.cpbitmap and FolderSwitcherLinenX.cpbitmap cache files (see location below) and then respring before your themed files take effect.

    Or if you wanna have folders inside folders, FolderEnhancer. Also lets you customize the background.
