    I'll explain this eventually in my thread but basically there are different sized icons for alerts e.g Bulletin board alerts on the Lockscreen, the setting icons, the banner icons. If they used the main icon sized at 114x114px the iOS would need to resize that icon for when the smaller icons are needed. It probably makes sense to have a batch of icons at various sizes to be used when necessary to reduce system resources.

    Hope that helps.

    So, is [email protected] really needed?
    Cause in some folder *.app there are like 10 different icons. Is it sufficient to put only [email protected] or do I have to create all icons with the exact size?

    Ok thanks for the answer.
    Btw, as far as I remember you are still using lockinfo4 and not lockinfo5 right?
    If not I found mail/SMS/... Icon used or statusbar.
