    When I ssh, I look in the preferences folder and see "settings@2x". This is supposed to be retina quality (114x114px) but when I place this icon in my categories custom icons folder in ssh, it comes out fuzzy (possibly 57X57px?), and not retina quality...I thought "settings@2x" would be 114x114 px, what gives?

    Categories on iOS4? Really? Just use the folders.

    I don't like how the stock folders look like. Therefore, I am using categories so I can make my folders show an icon that represents the items in it.

    i don't know what gives, though i'm confused why you don't just check if its 114x114 px?
    A possible answer is that categories won't allow retina icons to be set through the app.
    Have you tried replacing the icon.png with your retina one for the category in var/stash/applications/category00x.app?
    Another alternative is to theme the folder through winterboard.

    Who cares how they look. I'll answer that for you. Only YOU. Don't waste your time with Categories.

    Listen, I don't like seeing a bunch of stock folders that look exactly the same...it's a lot easier to discern which folders are which when they have a big ol' identifiable icon.

    I actually was successful in having retina icons show on my categories folders but for some reason the only icon I couldn't have be a retina (114X114) was the settings icon that i found in this location: var/applications/preferences.app/settings@2x.png. I don't understand why it's showing up less than retina quality when all of my other icons show up crystal clear (114X114). I must be accessing the wrong settings@2x.png icon file?

    Is there an icon@2x.png in var/stash/applications/preferences.app ? EDIT: or perhaps an icon-326.png?
    havent got an ip4, but the settings.png in that directory is tiny for me, so may be the smaller icon for settings>general

    Thanks for the help. It just so happens to be named icon@2x.png :).
