    Hi, I have a quick question.

    Is it possible to have custom iphone app icons that are larger than the required 59 x 59, without using winterboard?

    Everytime I try to ssh and replace a an app icon with a big icon, it resizes it to fit 59x59. Is it possible to have larger icons without using winterboard?

    I have a custom icon that is lets say a rectangle, about 200x100 px. I can't really use shrink as that just scales it up. So there is no way without winterboard to have a bigger app icon size?

    Winterboard is quite slow. Period. As for the replacing app in folder, that is what I am doing, but it resizes what ever I put into 59x59 and not my own custom dimensions.
