    Me and Anthony Cornell (AKA FreeApple AKA TER4M) would like to introduce our newest tweak iconOmatic.

    As many of you know with iOS7 came a lot of changes with the way that Apple renders its icons. Well with the new way Apple is rendering its icons on the device, they have done away with the shadow file and only use a mask. In essence what this means is because there is no shadow file that renders under the mask, themers are not able to add icon effects (such as shine, shading, and icon frames). The only thing you can do is mask the shape of the icon.

    In addition they also removed the 2nd springboard shadow file (that was in springboard.app) that allowed themers to make custom shadows for the icons to give them that pop off the wallpaper.

    Well with iconOmatic we are bringing style back to your icons. And this also allows all of your icons to auto theme. So even if you have a cydia app or App Store app that doesn’t have a new custom icon with the theme your using it will
    now auto theme using iconOmatic.

    For instructions on how this tweak works, and how to use/make themes for use with iconOmatic, please use the following link

    You can also find this link inside the preferences for iconOmaitic in the "Documents" section.


    Head over to cydia to install your copy today!!


    I would also like to say that all coding and hard work was done by Anthony Cornell. Myself (Rick AKA Subywrex) only helped by annoying Anthony with ideas. Lol

    In the preferences there is a donation link, any donations are appreciated but not expected.

    A HUGE thanks to MamaJaay for always taking care of us and becoming our repo manager. As most of you know her, it goes with out saying she is one of the best people out in the community, and always willing to help! So again thank you MJ!!

    Another huge thank you to Decke for making the icon for this tweak and also allowing us to use his overlay made for Acies (available in cydia now!!) as one of the iconOmatic themes that come with the tweak!

    Some issues:

    - if you switch to another shadow, you have to rearrange them first or they won't applied
    - Icon shadow isn't really centered. Created mine center but on the screen they are appr. 1-2 pixel to the right
    - Overlay: tried a simple 2 pixel border. this border i get to see but i get pixeled and black / white inner shadow on the corners

    Did you try respringing? What device are you on?

    Should this tweak be used with icon theme maker or not?
    This would replace that entirely. From what I remember icon theme maker was a utility to theme Cydia icons that were not themed in the theme. iOS 7 pretty much takes care of that now as the icon mask is applied to every image

    Some issues:

    - if you switch to another shadow, you have to rearrange them first or they won't applied
    - Icon shadow isn't really centered. Created mine center but on the screen they are appr. 1-2 pixel to the right
    - Overlay: tried a simple 2 pixel border. this border i get to see but i get pixeled and black / white inner shadow on the corners
    If you refer the the preferences there is instructions at the top. The icon theme you want needs to be ontop

    We will look into it however I didn't notice anything off center. Also easily adjusted in the file before you distribute as apart of your theme

    Don't really understand. Can you post a picture. I did find that I order for overlays to work I had to transform it a pixel (maybe 2) smaller on the canvas to fit. This is a very low priority fix as the theme artist can easily adjust to make fit before distributing

    thx suby, sure it is not a big deal to adjust the files. just wanted to let you know. i think it would be much easier, cause you have to respring after each change.

    to the preferences. whenever you create a new folder he is on top. but will not be applied even after respring. after re order them it works.

    i finally got mine to work correctly

    when i applied my icon overlay theme, it wouldn't theme. i then realised that i had my custom sized mask .png in the "/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileIcons" folder. i replaced it with the original (as any theme maker would keep). i then deleted all the files in "var/Mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.IconsCache" and re-sprung. this then reset all the icons back to the original mask size. i applied the overlay theme and it worked but, as you can see in the picture, my icons are smaller than the stock, so i need to apply the mask to reduce the icon size. that was done by putting the custom icon mask "[email protected]" into a winterboard theme "NameOfTheme.xxxxx/Bundles/com.apple.mobileicons.framework/" and applying it.

    as you can see it works a treat

    i do have one suggestion.

    is it possible to have a custom icon mask file ([email protected]) in with the theme? that way, people wont have to add it into a new or existing winterboard theme. and if different themes use different masks, it'll will be a lot easier to change with the overlay theme, than to go into winterboard and change it each time.

    Because apple already does the mask you would still need to use winterboard with your themes respective mask. So when packaging a theme you would have your theme mask off in winterboard. But just the shape. And iconomatic will handle the styling

    that is true. and that'll be the way i'll be doing things.

    but i was thinking, if people only wanted to change the icons overlay design easily and quickly, and not the background or full theme (as themes will eventually/hopefully go back to the ios6 way of doing things), then that would suite them. as you know, people are dead lazy these days and are not willing to fart unless you pull their finger first...
