    So I'm theming my 3GS with a few themes that I mixed together. All the icons work, except for Last.fm. I've changes the Icon.png in the var/mobile/applications folder, and it does change the icon. But there is this overlay that won't go away, and I can't for the life of me figure out what .png is causing it.

    Anyone know the answer?

    That is wierd. Post up the icon you are trying to replace it with. Oh and it may sound stupid but check the icon you are replacing and wether it starts with a capital i or not

    Last.fm is the only one with the shiny look. There has to be a way to remove it. D:

    Edit: No one?

    I've tried every .png that had "overlay", "gradient", "icon", or "background" in it. Nothing is working. Unless there's 1 I missed. This is so tedious xD

    In var/mobile/applications (folder)
    There should be an itunes meta plist or something. Keep scrolling down and it should have 'needs shine' or something like that. the value should be set to 'true'. Use iFile or SSH to change it to false.

    To remove the glare:

    1) Go to var/mobile/applications/(Last.fm's folder)/Last.fm.app/
    2) Open Info.plist in a Properties List editor (I recommend http://www.icopybot.com/plistset.exe)
    3) Go to the bottom of the file and add the following before the </dict> part:
    Code:
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true/>
    4) The end of the file should now look like this:
    Code:
    	<key>UIStatusBarStyle</key>
    	<string>UIStatusBarStyleBlackOpaque</string>
    
    	<key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    	<true/>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    5) Save the file
    6) The glare should now be removed

    Note: UIPrerenderedIcon tells SpringBoard that the icon is already set up for viewing and doesn't need anything added to it.
