    I saw a screenshot on a different site (forgot which) of a jailbroken ipod but he had somehow renamed some of the applications, how do I do that? I am fairly confident with WinSCP but i am quite new to modding so dont explain it in a too complex way.

    Im not sure if the screenie was a fake or not... but anyway

    Thanks in advance

    You can just SSH in and rename the application folders...

    Or instead of confusing him, have him search on Google or something for the app Rename, so he doesn't have to mess with those files.

    Looks like rename is in the SOSiPhone repo.

    But the app Rename does not work for the stock apps like "music", "Mail" "Safari" etc. It will only change the names of Cydia, Installer, Icy, etc.

    *Go on Cydia
    *Sections -> Repos
    *Install SOSiPhone
    *After Installing it search "Rename" and install
    *Open Rename and rename your apps
