    If you go into the ipa file that is on your computer, change it to a zip file, open it up and you'll see a plist file. In there, it has a spot where you can change the "glare" from true to false.

    Hope this helps.

    Nvm, I've found it. I've made a winterboard thing that change AppIconOverlay.png
    AppIconMask.png
    AppIconShadow.png

    to a blank 59x60 image.

    when you are developing for the iphone/ipod touch you can remove the 'glare' or pre-rendered effect by adding
    Code:
    <key>UIPrerenderedIcon</key>
    <true/>
    to the info.plist of the application, but it still rounds the corners off for you and puts a shadow on for you.

    i dont know if it is possible but you might be able of unzipping a ipa and changing that info.plist
