    Alright you'll need to ssh into your iDevice, if you don't know how to follow this link...
    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how to ssh into iPhone iPod Touch

    1. SSH into your device

    2. Navigate to /private/var/stash/Applications.pwn

    3. Select the jailbroken app you would like to make a spotlight icon for

    4. Copy the icon.png located inside the jailbroken .app folder and paste it to a convenient folder

    5. Open it with your computers picture manager

    6. Resize it to 29x29

    7. Save

    8. Rename to Icon-Small.png

    9. Drag to the jailbroken apps folder

    10. Respring or Reboot

    11. And ... Done!

    Below i've provided the Cydia apps resized spotlight icon so all you have to do is drag it to it's folder. Also i have noticed that if you upgrade the package you had made a spotlight icon for you will not have to redo it, it will stay there. If you do not have the capital letters on Icon-Small.png it will NOT work.

    already been posted almost instantly after 3.0 jailbreak release. Still, good for people who didn't see the original post

    Also, you said you had attached cydia+winterboard+terminal icons, all i see is terminal
