    Ok, i saw a couple of other posts when doing this one but none with an answer so...

    I just installed MobileMusicPlayer Flip on my Ipod Touch 2gen (why did they decide to split the application on the ipod? hmm...) so now i am wondering is there anyway to rename the icon? i would like it to say "Media Player" instead of "iPod".

    i though that maybe i could change it with the info.plist found in the MobileMusicPlayer.app folder by changing

    <key>UIRoleDisplayName</key>
    <string>iPod<</string>

    switching iPod for Media Player and creating a winterboard theme, either this trick does not work or i used the incorrect folder structure in my theme ("[Theme folder]\Folders\MobileMusicPlayer.app")

    anyone have any suggestions?

    actually there is a pretty cool app for that... i dont know if it has anything to do with renaming stuff but you should take a look at "Rename" from Cydia

    Have you tried adding this to the info.plist?

    Code:
        <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
        <string>Media Player</string>
    Result:
