    People on these forums have done an awesome job with themes and icons, but I have not seen a way to change or add to the availabe icons in the Categories.app. Is there a way to add with WinSCP? I found a pack through Installer, but I would like to add some more user made icons.

    Thanks

    I tried to add icons but it doesn't work. You can do 2 things to change them. You can just over write the icon in the categories app folder. Or you can just add an icon to a theme that is names that categories name.

    what i did is go into each one your categories you made and change the icon.png

    also, if you go to categories.app/icons, you can add as many extra icons as you want, just make sure you 755 everything

    edit, changing the name into the name of the category is a bad idea. i totally screwed up my ipod last time i tried that, having to restore.

    I was wrong I changed permisions with finder on my icons and they show up now. But the easiest way to change the icon after being made is to just add an icon to your theme icon folder named the same as the category.
