    This technique here is the quickest and least buggy way to unify the music and video icons for the ipod touch. For those who are unsure as to what this does it combines the music and video icons of the ipod touch and makes them into the ipod icon like the iphone. See below.

    step1 - Download the file attached to this post. change the file extension to .plist (the forum wouldnt let me upload the .plist)

    step2 - Navigate to /Application/MobileMusicPlayer.app using DiskAid (or your preferred file viewer) NOTE: diskaid is for windows + mac and it allows you to copy files to and from your iphone and ipod.

    step3 - Create a backup of your info.plist onto your computer

    step4 - Copy the downloaded info.plist to your device.


    Enjoy. PM me if you have any queries.​

    Well as many many people have said mobile music player flip owls very buggy. I tried it myself and had many problems with it. So I found it easier to do it my way.

    Cheers.

    I have read on this forum that multiple people had problems with mobilemusicplayerflip.
    People are saying that:
    -it stays the same as before i.e. no ipod icon, just music and video
    -music and video icons dissapear and no ipod icon.
    etc.

    The way i do it is the way it is done for the actual iphone. The info.plist i provided is a modified file from my iPod touch, the way i found it was by looking through the files relating to the ipod.app in my iphone 3G.
    Without going in to too much detail you just need to change a couple of true/false values and your done. That is the beauty of the hack in that its the way the software was designed to be.

    It has been done.
