    I found a way to change the appstore apps through SSH and still have them work after.

    1. SSH your ipod
    2. find your application /private/var/mobile/Applications
    -the application name will be some random numbers and letters so click on the of the folders and then you will find the app.
    -click on your app and find the icon.png it might be called something else like "applicationIcon.png" it depends on the app.
    3. Anyways...replace the icon with your custom one.
    4. before you reset your springboard, start the application up and make sure it runs.
    5 then restart your springboard and INJOY!!!!

    will this still add that disgusting gloss and highlight over your icon?

    doesn't this still make the apps unusable after a while?
