    I want to change the icon for my Checklist application, which I got through the App Store. I notice that this app doesn't appear under /Applications, so I can't just swap the icon.png file. Is the PNG file located some place else for app store applications?

    The apps downloaded from the App Store are in /var/Mobile/Applications
    But when you change the icon.png of an appstore app, and then respring, you will get an error message saying the app cannot be opened, so you will be forced to delete the app and re sync it, losing all ur game info.

    The only way to do it, is to make your logo, make a theme outta it (or put it in a theme you really like) put it in /Library/Themes and then select that theme in WinterBoard, then you should be okay, just respring and thats it

    What do you mean respring? I don't use any theme app and I don't really want to get into that, unless it's the only way.

    By the way I'm looking there and I don't see any icon.png files for any of the apps?

    Ok, I got it to work. But what is Default.png?

    And I noticed that for some reason my icon got the shiny effect applied to it, when I didn't want it. How do you get rid of that?
