    This is for complete customization of your webclips
    for ex. this is what i did, i made a seeqpod webclip, and sshed into my ipot and changed the name to Limewire and got the Lime Icon so it appears i have limewire, even tho its just a seeqpod webclip

    1>Make the webclip of whatever website you want, to do this Click the + at the bottom of safari on that website

    2>SSH into your ipod and navigate to the following: /var/mobile/Library/WebClips

    3> Now there is only one way to recognize which webclip is what(unless you have one) so click on the folders, and right click the info.plist and read to find out what webclip it is

    4> To change the name change the following:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>Scale</key>
    	<real>1</real>
    	<key>ScrollPoint</key>
    	<string>0.000000,1.000000</string>
    	<key>Title</key>
    	<string>[U][B]Limewire[/B][/U]</string>
    	<key>URL</key>
    	<string>http://www.seeqpod.com/m/#_home</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    
    the bolded and underlinded word is what the webclip will be tagged, so change that to whatever you like, i chose Limewire for seeqpod.

    5>in the same folder that that info.plist is located there is a 60x60 icon.png file, this is pretty self-explanitory, just make a 60x60 png and name it icon and replace the previous one


    Hope this help for a little more customization and fun

    For the name, can't you title the webclip when you are making it?
