    This is even a SIMPLER way to make an iPhone looking icon, without PhotoShop.

    First, make sure you have a site with a html that has your square, unmodified icon.

    Then save the page as a webclip.

    After that, go to /private/var/mobile/Library/WebClips/******** <== bunch of uuids

    Then, there should be an icon.png. Copy that, and there you have it, an iPhone styled icon without PhotoShop!

    websites can specify what icon is used in iphone webclips by putting the icon in the root of their website. the ipod or iphone automatically makes that image into a perfect icon, then saves it as the icon for the webclip. he's saying you could take any image and upload it to the root of your website, save a webclip of the site, and then go to the llocation he specifies and take the new, perfect icon out.

    ^see my above post.

    to condense it even more, the ipod takes the icon image that the website owner specifies and turns it into a proper icon. then it saves the icon as the icon of the webclip. all you need to do is save your desired icon image in the root of your website and make a webclip of it. then go into your ipod and take out the icon.
