    So, just jailbroke my iPhone 4 (4.0.1). When using Winterboard I try to set my dock to transparent but nothing seems to happen. Is there something else I need to do or is this a flaw?

    Thanks all.

    Same problem here. Most of the themes that come with winterboard do nothing for me, or at least not what they say they do.

    I searched on Google and found an old way of getting this to work was to rename the DOCK file used in openSSH to something like SBDockBG.png . Well, I went into openSSH using WINSCP and found that the background files under the transparent background folder were in fact renamed as above. So...

    I believe it's a bug with Winterboard. A majority of the themes that come with the app don't work with the iPhone 4. In good time, I'm sure they'll have the kinks worked out! :)

    I figured it out... I created 2 new transparent docks, named one

    SBDockBG@2x.png and the other SBDockBGT@2x.png. Put them into the 'Transparent Dock.theme' folder and deleted the current SBDockBG.png and SBDockBG2.png. Went to Winterboard, selected transparent dock and the dock is gone!

    ^Worked for me too. Still shows the App names and the reflection though. I can live with it though. Thanks!

    To get rid of the reflection on the dock, go to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app' folder. You will need to copy this file into that folder. It will overwrite the current file. Respring and the reflection should be gone.
