    Is it possible to edit the icons in the payload of the .ipa from the app store to allow for custom icons???

    I know how to convert iphone pngs to windows pngs but not windows pngs to iphone pngs... and I think that is why it doesn't work and errors...

    Or maybe iTunes is reading the .ipa's modified date and if it has been changed it rejects it...

    Becuase if we could change the icon, we could also change every image file for each application... it isn't totally "Customize" but it is a start...

    Yes , rename the .ipa to *.zip and then extract.

    I know that...

    but the png's are "iPhone" pngs, therefore I can't open them... and how do I make iPhone compatible pngs?

    There's a program that does it for you, give me a sec and I'll find the name of it.

    I never thought that it mattered, as on previous fimrwares I copied Windows-readable pngs to my iPod.

    Well I think that may be why it doesn't work...

    Not yet... I know why it isn't working though...

    It is the PNG files... I can convert them from the iphone png to a normal png but I can't convert a normal png to a iphone png...
