    Some icons have a reflection for example look at the green whatsapp icon. I got it from the theme Jaku. When I Apply Jaku on winterboard I don't get this reflection but now without the theme I get it. I'm guessing it's a file in the whatsapp app folder. Which file do I have to delete to hide this reflection effect?

    I think it's an iOS thing, not a Whatsapp thing - a similar reflection effect appears on web apps (icons added from safari).

    But why wasn't it showing up when I was using the Jaku theme? It must mean a file in the whatsapp folder exists that's creating this reflection which wasn't in the Jaku whatsapp folder. I only replaced the default icon with the Jaku icon.

    that's because apple uses a mask to create the app store icons, so all apps (no from cydia) will have that reflection (you can see your tweetbot icon)

    when you use another theme it contains another mask to auto-frame icons so will have the reflection given by the theme creator or simply with no reflection.

    I don't know how to do that :p

    How come the Dictionary app icon doesn't have a reflection? I also have other app store apps without it and some of the stock apps have the reflection.
