    hi

    this may be a stupid question but how do you change the dock on ios 5 thru winterboard?

    my theme changes the icons, wallpapers etc. but not the dock the Dock png is where my Wallpaper png is also

    also location of the icons shadow on springboard/dock? (my icons has a circular shape)

    how do you get a retina grade theme icon? my icon when i change it's size to 114x114(72ppi) its just too big and when its 90x90(72(ppi) well its pixels are apparent

    edit:
    located the stock dock png it's [email protected]~iphone located /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app

    but still does not change on winterboard (themename/bundles/com.apple.springboard)

    For a dock to show up on iOS5 (retina display as well) you need 2 dock icons. One named "SBDockBG.png" that is 320X45 pixels, and a second named "[email protected]" that is 640X90 pixels. Both must be placed in the com.apple.springboard folder of the theme (Under Bundles). It is also possible you need to stack the theme in Winterboard by touching and holding the little up/down arrow on the theme (in Winterboard) and dragging it to the top. This sets it as top priority, as if it is lower, similar themes could overlap it.


    Hope this helps

    Noticed that No Docked Icon Labels was preventing my custom dock from showing up, no matter the order, if that helps anyone.

    I did this and had no luck, I was using photoshop and was set at RGB 16 bit, and the Backround set as transparent. I did everything else that you said above as far as pixels, names, and folders. I have tried a few different techniques to try to get a dock to load, but no luck yet. Any suggestions, or can you point me in the right direction? Thanks so much for the help!!
