    in the title, not when you open the folder ( i already have folder enhancer for that)


    just on the springboard, the tiny folder icons, how to make those transparent instead of solid black?

    thanks

    This is awesome! I've been wanting something like this for a while. One question, the folders don't have a border (obviously as the title of the tweak says). Is there a tweak that has clear folders but with a border?

    Nice! Did the same myself... slightly different with less reflection.

    Sure. Without Winterboard you're gonna need to put the dock mask into /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app. Make sure to rename or make a copy of original. Here is the wallpaper and mask.

    if you guys want a border, just search for Clear 4.0 folders in Cydia. there's an option for with or without borders on your folder. i prefer the one without :)

    I checked that theme out before making my own but the border alignment is off with too much chrome. :)

    Nope. You can either override the original file or use winterboard. Those are the only options.

    You can use either one of the themes posted, mine or ominx's. Place it in your winterboard theme directory, select it through winterboard and respring.

    i'd like to make the OPEN folder background clear (or semi-transparent).
    anyone know what file needs to be changed? (or another solution?)
