    Just what the title says...I want to know if its possible to make dummy icons that can look like what ever icon I want but do nothing and dont open anything when I tap them. A bit like iBlanks but not so Blank.

    Thanks

    You can do iBlanks but rename the iBlanks using Rename from Cydia. Name them to any app you want.

    For example, I renamed my iClassic app to "iPod" so the iPod icon is what the iClassic icon is now.

    its like CMD in Windows, or terminal on mac, you type commands directly into it.

    1. Find the icon image online
    2. Center the image until the entire screen is filled with the icon
    3. Add new homescreen bookmark
    4. Name it whatever you want
    congradulations youve just made a dummy icon

    Ok..thanks..but the problem im trying to get around here is I have no wifi so apps from cydia and safari bookmarks aren't alot of help. I really appreciate the help and have it noted down on my ipod for when ever I find myself in a place with wifi but does anyone know a manual way using only what you would have when you first jailbreak a ipod +winterboard -wifi?
