    This theme is made for the iPhone. It is suppose to be transparent. I'm testing it for the iPad by resizing some of the icons to work with the iPad. While, so far the ones I change are replaced on the iPad, the major flaw is that there is a black underlay. While that does not happen on the iPhone, it does on the iPad for transparent background icons. Even without the theme, I checked replacing a few icons in ifile using the transparent icons, and I'm still getting the black underlay. Anyone here know why no black underlay on the iPhone but appears on the iPad? Thanks

    This is how it looks

    You're probably missing the icon mask that comes with the theme, and that's why it shows the black shadowy background

    How do I correct that? I'm actually using the iPhone theme and made no changes but added iPad size icons to some of the apps. Should that have not carried over to the iPad? thanks

    Inside the theme, there's a folder that controls the icon mask. You need to transfer that over too (you may have to resize it, not sure)

    The stock icon mask is what's creating the black shadow background you have right now

    Thanks. It took a while but I fixed it. Removing the AppleMask@2x~ipag.png image in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileIcons.framework fixed the problem. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.:)

    Glad to see it worked for you

    I would recommend just renaming the file instead of deleting it in case you ever want to revert something back to stock!

    I have put back the image in the file. Once I figured out it was the AppleMask@2x~ipag.png image affecting the background; I then found a similar image with a clear background in the theme com.apple.mobileicons.framework folder name AppleMask@2x~iphone.png, so I copied it and changed the iphone to ipad. That fixed the issue.
