    Hi I wanted to make Installer show up as AppStore on my homescreen. I renamed Installer.app to AppStore.app but then it just crashed. I changed it back and it was fine. What do I have to do to make it say AppStore?

    In SSH:
    mv Installer.app Installer.bak
    ln -s Installer.app AppStore.app
    cp -Rp Installer.bak/* AppStore.app/
    mkdir Installer.app
    ln -s AppStore.app Installer.app
    launchctl stop com.apple.SpringBoard

    Don't forget to replace icon.png in Installer.app with the AppStore one.

    To change it back, all you'd have to do is:
    rm -rf AppStore.app Installer.app
    mv Installer.bak Installer.app
