    Wink [Icons] Custom Icons on Appstore installed Apps ?

    Okay, all we know is we can change the icon's as usual. (Replace the icon.png in the application.app folder.)

    But, with the Appstore apps some of them looking strange.
    I just found the reason why. In the Info.plist of each installed .app is a line (or not) that says:
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true/>
    if there is no such line in the Info.plist, the icon will be redone on the phone with some gloss and shapes. (to match the other icons.)

    All you have to do, is add this line to the Info.plist of the icon thats messed up (eg. CBNK3D or HoldEm.) and be happy with the correct custom icon, with no extra gloss & shape.

    i hope i could help someppl out here.


    cheers

    Found out that some AppStore-Applications get broken after changing the Icon.png, so handle with care!

    Thanks for the tip, but I can't seem to get this to work. First I tried it on Quordy, and it didn't affect it, and then I tried it on MobileFinder, and the app disappeared. I even restored the original Info.plist file and it didn't show up. Poofing and unpoofing it didn't bring it back either. I'm guessing that syncing it back would fix the problem, but I've simply decided to convert my ipa's into app folders. That way, I won't have to go into each ipa's folder to install an icon, I can simply add the icon to my WinterBoard theme's folder.

    So if I wanted to copy the summerboard themed icon.png for my camera.app (different from the default) to replace my snapture icon.png where should I look for the summerboard icon for the camera?

    I found the camera icon.png under the mobileslideshow but it is the default one on not the nice summerboard app.

    Thanks!

    private/var/mobile/applications

    thats where your apps from appstore will be
    but if you change the icon, it will break the app
    when i tried changing out the icon.png for my custom one it would break the app causing it to not launch anymore.
