    (or any theme?) if you have a folder (made with categories), the icons for the games will not change with the theme? In this case I am talking about the BuufV2 theme. Thanks in advance for any help.

    because categories.app has icons built in.

    go into the icon folder in categories and change it there

    /private/var/stash/Applications.huvvou/Categories.app/icons

    Because the Icon name on your ipod must exactly match the icon name with the theme. See the theme could be "games" with no capitals or it could be "Games" with a capital, try both. If not SSH into your themes folder and find the name of the Games icon, or maybe it doesnt have one?

    EDIT: Ninja'd, but anyway cjshriver3 is wrong, as long as the theme has the name of the icon it will overide the default one.

    Wrong? Ask anyone that knows what they're talking about, how do you think iNav themes work? You know they the Games icon too, so why dont you have to SSH? Anywhere in the direction's for iNav does it EVER say to SSH into the categories.app and change the icons? Hmmm...no it doesn't. I could go on and on, BUT you're wrong.
    EDIT: Are you sure it even has a games icon?
    Well im sorry if im wrong but thats how it's done, it might even be the name of the icon the theme is wrong.

    Either...

    *The name of the icon doesnt match EXACTLY the name of your folder
    or
    *That theme doesnt come with a games folder icon

    Alright if I get what you are saying you are saying that the icons in the folder of Categories is not changing. So like for instance you have a Categories folder name Apps. The icons in there won't change until you tell that folder to do so.

    Here is how to do it. You open that Category folder and then press the little circled "i" on the bottom right. Then on the bottom of the list is a section called "Icons Theme:" Press on the "No Theme" part and select your theme. You need to do this for every Category Folder.
