    Can you change icons' names? For example, I'd like to change the text gpSPHONE to GameBoy. I searched but didn't see anything on it.

    I think all you have to do is rename the folder via SSH
    Like rename the gpsphone.app to GameBoy.app
    EDIT: Yes that works

    yea you can change them just by changing the name of the folder of the app in the Applications folder. But remeber, whenever you update an app, it doesnt recognize that new named app, so you will have to go into Applications, copy all the new stuff in the updated app, and paste it into the new named app, then delete the updated app. Little confusing, but nice being able to rename the apps. Got sick of SMBpref. Changed it to Themes.

    FTP into your iPod
    Go to /Applications
    Rename to .app folder to whatever you want.
    Restart iPod

    ex: gpSPhone.app --> GBA.app

    I tried that last night to SMBPrefs, and it changed the name, but when I go into the program, it crashed back to the springboard.

    You renamed it to Summerboard or Summerboard.app ... the .app is important too
