    nah, the shadows just look weird when my current theme is applied... I have tried using the Iblank no icon shadows in winterboard but it doesnt work on 4.2.1 so I will try the one you suggested

    hmm that one doesn't seem to work either, must be incompatible with the new firmware

    Did you remove any images in the SpringBoard.app folder?

    Can you check if IconDarkeningOverlay@2x.png is inside the SpringBoard.app folder?

    Most springboard icons have renamed suffixes in 4.2.1, i.e. end with "@2x~iphone.png" instead of "@2x.png". Make sure you rename modified files with the "~iphone". Also...springboard moved to /library/coreservices/springboard.app instead of /library/PrivateFrameworks/SpringBoardUI.framework.

    Has anyone made a working winterboard theme for this in 4.2.1 to remove the icon shadows? I tried the using the instructions from the ^ website above but it did not work. I also tried renaming the file SBDockMask@2x~iphone.png but still had no luck. If anyone makes a working winterboard theme for this can you please post it? Thanks

    The ones you have to rename are called WallpaperIconShadow@2x~iphone.png and wallpapericondock~iphone@2x or something along those lines

    They are in the springboard.app folder

    Thanks a lot. I will try this again later. I am happy to be on 4.2.1 now and just have to sort out a few more things. Thanks again

    I managed to get rid of the icon shadows using the Glasklart HD theme. There is a separate hack in winterboard called 'Glasklart HD Icons Less Shadows' and as long as it's selected and placed ABOVE the Glasklart Icons theme in the list in Winterboard, it works just fine!

    I don't know if that one theme file would work with other themes or not??? But you could try...

    Major thanks to you for the trick re getting rid of icon shadows. I've spent hours changing/tweaking/experimenting and this did it in about 30 seconds. Much gratitude!!!:)
