    I'm sure there are easier ways to do this LOL but this is how I got a fake appstore icon:

    1. You must be on v 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 with software upgrade
    2. Go to google images and type in appstore
    3. When you find the picture, save to your desktop
    4. When you've done that, use a image editing program to enlarge the image to about 3 times its size
    5. Save the enlarged appstore image
    6. Then upload it to a profile of somesort(i used Bebo)
    7. After uploading the image, go to your iPod touch
    8. Point safari to the location of your uploaded photo
    9. When you are there click add to home screen and it will show you what image you are going to get for the app (you may need to position the app a few times)
    10. Save to homescreen and ta da

    Hope this was helpful, if this doesn't work, PM me and i'll help you (please +rep if useful)

    I think it could even work with 2.0

    Just out of curiosity, did you get that from What The Buck? He says that all the time.

    Not sure where it came from, but I picked it up from one of my golf buddies in Japan. It just seemed appropriate at the time. Maybe we can make a fake installer icon for them too!

    a better way is to add the apple daily times source from installer and download rename Installer to App Store and download 2.0 FW icons

    Anyway back on topic.... This didn't work for me (I'm on 2.0). But instead i just renamed my Apollo app AppStore and replaced the icon with the AppStore icon and viola i SSH'ed and put it in. Then i made a default screen that says AppStore coming June 2008 and it shows the icon.

    How did this thread go from 2.0 firmware to talking about gay people. Stay on-topic. That means FW 2.0.
