    The ~ messes up the outside linking, so here's the true URL you'll need to convert plists:

    Actually you can just change the icon.png in /private/var/mobile/Applications/Randomsh*t/(AppName).app

    Look at the last thread I made, it has screenshots of the app icon and the app working after the icon change.

    The apps don't work forever after changing an icon because the app store apps are digitally signed so when you change something it crashes because what you changed it to is not signed code.
