    Default For hardcore non-US users: Weather & Map icon replacements

    This started off as a project to replace two icons on the main springboard (the weather icon with the Fahrenheit, and the map icon with the US highway symbol) with Canada-appropriate icons but it has now broadened into the inclusion of map icons for the international community. I will also make any international map icon to fit your country on request and include it here! Here is a photo of the icon set:



    The weather icon is in celsius, and the map icons reflect the highway route of each country.

    To replace your icons with them, you can download the zip file here:

    http://66.29.24.227/jamesicons5.zip

    Just unzip the file. Fire up ibrickr (or SSH, WinSCP, or whatever program you use to access the file directory) and replace the icon.png file in each respective directory (ie. replace the icon.png from the Applications/Weather.app/ directory with the respective one on the iPhone, and the icon.png from the Applications/(country)Maps.app/ directory of your country with the one in Applications/Maps.app/ on the iPhone). Then shut off your iphone, restart, and voila!

    Feel free to request a map icon with your country's highway embedded and I'll do my best to make one. If possible, it would save me time if you could point me to a webpage that has an example of what the highway sign you want looks like, as it would save me from having to research out the country's national highway...

    - James

    Edit4: Maps icons included for Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Philippines, UK (British Railway), and UK/France (Motorway)

    Hey jpuma1616 - I've been searching online and I'm having trouble finding a photo or image of what your national highway sign is... does your Pan-Philippine (Maharlika) Highway by any chance use some sort of standard sign design? The closest thing I can find is for your Dept of Transportation - would this symbol do?:

    Tim, love your work mate.

    I'm from Down-Under, so needless to say - (but here I am saying it anyway) - I'm stunt-keen for BOTH the 'Celsius' Weather icon reality and the 'My-home-style' Mapping icon.

    However, I grabbed your zipped-up package and un-zipped it, but could only find each reality existing in an app style. (I couldn't find any icon.png files anywhere...)

    Am I supposed to drop each relevant app into my iPhone's Applications folder? (Replacing the existing Weather.app folder's contents in my iPhone completely?)
    Or am I supposed to 'look' inside each of your 'apps' for the replacement icon.png - and if so, how?

    Love your work - and in advance, your time for an answer...

    Hey Anonymouse - don't copy the .app folders itself - the folders are just to give an example of which corresponding folder on your iphone the .png files should be placed. I'm not sure why you aren't seeing the .png files - there is an icon.png file in each folder in the zip file... if you're using Windows and using file explorer, maybe it's hidden? I don't see why Windows would hide .png files, but in case it is, you can go to Tools-FolderOptions-View and check 'Show Hidden Files and Folders'... though I don't think you should have to do that to see them...

    In each of the folders of the zipped file (go all the way into each folder) there should be an icon.png file . So, to replace the Celsius icon, look for the icon.png that is under the Applications/Weather.app folder that is in the zip file. Copy that icon.png file into the Applications/Weather.app folder that exists on YOUR iphone (hence replacing the file that is currently there).

    For the map icon, in your case, look for the icon.png file that I have placed in the Applications/(Australia)Maps.app/ folder of the zip file. Copy that icon.png file into the Applications/Maps.app/ folder on YOUR iphone and replace the existing one. Restart, and that's it! The icons should reflect the new ones!

    I'll get to any other requests later today...
