    These two files that I attached can be used with Categories and CategoriesSB to (kinda) simulate the appearance of OS 4's folders.

    The first file is the one used in the just-released Beta 3 (medium gray, cross-hatched, in the picture above), and the second file is the dark gray pock-marked look from the previous beta (gotta love those spongy dots).

    1. Assuming you've already created some folders, use iFile to navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications/

    2. In EACH category folder (Category000.app, Category001.app, etc) replace the background.png file with whichever one of these files you prefer.
    - Make sure the new file that you're importing is named background.png
    - Be sure to back up the originals if you're ever going to want to go back to them

    3. Then open your Categories app, hit 'Manage Folders' then 'Edit' - then touch the blue arrow by the category(s) you want to mod, and make sure 'Use Background Image' is set to 'ON'.
    - If you want all folders to have this background, hit 'Apply to All Categories.'
    - Respring

    You should now have a 100% authentic knock-off of the backgrounds used in OS 4's folders.

    I know there's a way to do it via winterboard as well, but I didn't bother with it, and am too lazy to look it up . . .
