    I was able to change many of the icons for my apps, but some of them remained unchanged. I'm pretty sure this is because I named the .png files incorrectly. How can I know for certain what to change the filenames to? For example: Enso•Dot or SpinTheCoke etc.

    Well you have to name them exactly how they appear on the SpringBoard. Or else it won't work.

    Most icons have the same name as the app, but some don't (Ex: Make it Mine = MIM).

    It has to be named exactly as it is on the spring board; caps, spaces, everything.

    Could have sworn I already clarified that.

    Oh, thanks. I wasn't aware that case sensitivity was an issue. Does anyone know how to add the • symbol in the filename? Also, I'm guessing if there are two apps with the same name (ex:Tap Tap) then they have to share the same icon right?

    Use the Bundle Identifier.

    Icon Name
    com.tapulous.TapTap.png for Tap Tap Revenge 1
    com.tapulous.taptaprevengeII.png for Tap Tap Revenge 2

    Or Rename one of them.

    You can also do the identifier.

    That's how to separate Tap Tap icons.

    com.tapulous.TapTap.png and com.tapulous.taptap2revengeII.png

    ed: ninja'd, *sigh*
