    Ill Make This Quick And Short

    1. SSH into your device and navigate over to /var/mobile/Applications

    2. You'll see a bunch of folders with random names

    EX: 2C8408B8-8514-402C-BE93-C5D50A25D11A

    Find the folder that contains Tap Tap.app

    3. After you find the folder that contains Tap Tap.app, download the WHOLE folder

    EX: I would be downloading 2C8408B8-8514-402C-BE93-C5D50A25D11A

    4. After its all done downloading, navigate over to /Applications and put the whole folder in there

    EX: I would put 2C8408B8-8514-402C-BE93-C5D50A25D11A in /Applications

    5. Set The Permissions On Every File In There To 755, you can manually do it or to do this easily you can Enter this command

    Code:
    chmod -R 755 /Applications/<Replace_Here_With_Long_Folder_Name>
    EX:
    Code:
    chmod -R 755 /Applications/2C8408B8-8514-402C-BE93-C5D50A25D11A
    5. Respring or Reboot

    6. Now you can theme Tap Tap Revenge all you want without the dreaded message "The Application Tap Tap Cannot Be Opened"

    Theming takes place in the original Tap Tap.app located in /var/mobile/Applications/"Random Long Folder Name"

    Note: If you ever get that message and you have to reinstall Tap Tap Revenge, after you install it, make sure to follow this guide again with the new folder

    Or you can use WinterBoard.

    I'm going to use this theme as an example on how I did it, adjust accordingly.

    1. Download Winterboard
    2. Make these folders:
    /Library/Themes/theme-name/Bundles/com.tapulous.TapTap/(all the images from the Tap Tap.app folder)
    /Library/Themes/theme-name/Bundles/com.tapulous.TapTap/Aweso.ttrTheme/(images from Aweso.ttrTheme folder go here)

    When I tried to do what you suggest, I had 2 copies of Tap Tap Revenge on Springboard, one official that wouldn't open and one in /Applications that worked. There's no point of that and theming with WinterBoard is much simpler in my opinion. Also, you method prevents the user from downloading any songs that are made available in the future.
