    How TO:

    1.) Use Safari to Make the shortcut
    2.) SSH to you ipod (or iphone) and navigate to: /private/var/root/Library/WebClips
    3.) Identify with folder is witch by opening the folder and reading the "info.plist" (the third line from the bottom has the URL)
    4.) Once you find the shortcut you want, rename the "icon.png" file to "icon.png.backup", just in case
    5.) put in the icon you want and name it "icon"
    6.) reboot/respring, and check it out!

    thanks for this, it's cool

    but there's a site that does all this for you, no need for ssh or anything

    webclip.us

    well basically on the site, you put in the url for the webclip you want, the name of it, and the image from your computer
    it'll automatically resize it and add it to your homescreen

    very simple

    I wonder wether you can add webclips to stacks or categories?
    Any ideas?
