    I've decided to just edit the stock icons for my first theme to make things easier, if that's even legal.. I've only done the App Store so far but what do you guys think?

    Thanks, I'm having some trouble with the AppIcon Mask, Overlay, and Shadow though. I don't understand I have them in Bundles com.apple.mobileicons.framework and I've saved them as 24bit PNGs which is what is said to do in the tutorial but they still don't work. Here's what they look like:

    What am I doing wrong?

    Finally I figured it out I don't use PS I use GIMP and I found a plugin to export 24bit PNG but it wasn't working. I figured out how to do it manually, I have to make sure the alpha channel is removed before I export to PNG and it will be 24bit. Thanks for the link though, this helps.

    EDIT:
    Alright the mask is working but I'm confused about the Shadow now because since my icons are round there is still a white square around them how to I make the outside transparent?

    I don't know it's not working out the way I'd like it to I think I'm going to give up on themeing for now.

    Ok bud. Making a theme is a massive effort for little or no reward and it requires A LOT of time! Have been working on my own theme for a year. Scrapped it this year and am starting over...it's tedious that's for sure.

    Pick it up later when Edit: YOU have had a break. That can help! 👍
