    How do you remove the dark gradient at the bottom of the home screen? I'm using winterboard with glasklart icon.

    Not sure if this is what you are trying to accomplish... if you are talking about getting rid of gradient background when setting pictures as your home/lock screen then you will need to SSH into '/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/SpringBoardUI.frameworks/' and copy this file into that location. Respring and you are done.

    You rock! This did exactly what I was trying to accomplish. Thank you for taking the time to post this. I am sure you have better things to do.

    Do you know if there is a reference manual somewhere indicating what the different png system graphics affect? This would be a great tool for modding.

    Not a problem. I have actually asked this same question on the board and no one was able to help. So, it took me a little time to find the right file to change. The gradient affect that came native to the iPhone drove me crazy.

    I am new at this as well and have not seen a manual. I did download a program that allows you to view the .png files as they are encrypted. This helped me to find the right file to modify.

    Does that take away ALL of the gray gradient on the homescreen so its just the wallpaper? or just the bottom?

    When you click on the image link, it will open in a new window. When the window opens, go to select all. This will highlight the image, then, depending on your browser, right click and save as.

    Where does the file go if you are using Winterboard?

    With Winterboard, put the image in your Theme/Bundles/com.apple.SpringBoardUI folder.

    Funny, this path didn't work for me, but this one did: Theme/Folders/SpringBoardUI.framework/

    Figuring this out drove me crazy. I use winterboard to set a wallpaper image, so the gradient doesn't get applied. This gradient only appears when using the Settings application and the wallpaper menu to set your wallpaper.

    Thanks, I think I did it right. Now is there a way to use iFile to put it where I need to? I've never replaced a file before.
    Thanks again

    Thanks again, but this brings up another question. Can you please tell me how to use the link above to get the theme on my iphone? I do have Winterboard and also iFile. I've never used iFile; except to just look at files.
    Thanks

    Download the file via the link above. It is a .rar file so you will need 7-zip or another program to extract it. Once the file is extracted, you will SSH the folders into '/private/var/stash/Themes.XXXXXX'. Open Winterboad, select the new theme and respring.

    Everyone seems to like using that lengthy path with the confusing .xxxxx in it. I can just see all the questions on .xxxxx Like mine doesn't say .xxxxx what do I do?

    Just place your themes in /Library/Themes

    Fair enough... the reason for themes.XXXXXX is that not all themes folder end with the same letter/numbers. I have never used Library/Themes so this is a great shortcut for me to know.

    Thanks
