    Default Changing Apple's app names?

    How can I change the names of the apps Apple has created (specifically Stocks and YouTube). I've tried renaming the app and adding to/tweaking the Info.plist, but it's to no avail. I think that the app names are in the Springboard localization files however they're in binary. Any help?

    I haven't tried this, but have you tried:

    1. scp the .app to your computer
    2. rm the .app from the iPhone
    3. restarting the iPhone (app should be gone)
    4. altering the plist etc in the .app bundle on your computer
    5. scp the modified .app back to the iPhone
    6. restart the iPhone

    Let us know if it works?

    I'll try it, but I don't see why I should copy the app, remove it from iPhone, restart, change the .plist and recopy it. I have been connecting via SFTP and digging through the apps contents from there and modding the plist/app name with a restart after.

    Any idea on what strings I should be adding/looking for in the app? I tried to add CFBundleName but it doesn't work.
