    So I really like the idea of hmm glaslart orcwhatever with the see through apps. The only problem is I hate seeing the apps! So my new idea for a theme is to just have completely blank icons that you can't even see so that you can only see the background. I still wanna be able to tap on the icons and my apps pop up. I only have one page of apps that hasn't changed in forever and I know exactly where they are located anyway so there's no need for me to see em.

    Also I would need to remove the badges from the app store, mail and grocery iQ. Help on that would be helpful since it has been hard to locate on the interwebz. Yes I searched macrumors and Topeka extensively previous to creating this thread.

    Please don't flame my idea. It very well may be stupid but I wanna give it a shot

    ps. When the time comes, what app shod I use to rotate backgrounds on my phone. Does it use alot of memory? What's the Max # of pictures?

    Do you want a transparent icon or just the paths for those images?
    I would create a winterboard theme instead of trying to replace the native files.

    The badges image path (in winterboard) is YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/SBBadgeGB.png
    and the app icons YourTheme/icons/...

    I have no idea how you would remove the numbers that sit on top of the badge though.
    Dont use rotating wallpapers, but have a fading/morphing one of 8 images and cant notice any RAM change when only that is enabled.

    EDIT: have you thought about just poofing all your apps and launching them from spotlight/ Kirikae?

    BossPaper for changing backgrounds.

    You can SSH into your theme and use the iBlank icon for all your other icons as well. Make sure to back them up.

    Alternatively, there is a theme for Winterboard called "Dim Icons." It's included in the default themes when you download Winterboard. It puts them at about 50% opacity.
