    Hey everyone. I am trying to make some icons for a theme I am using, but some of the icons I can't seem to find anywhere online. So I was wondering is there a way to rip the icons out of the ipa files?

    hi. i did what you said. i went into and i extracted the icons but for some reason it turns out black. i think it might be encrypted. are there any other ways?

    You can just go to the applications page in the iTunes Store and take a screenshot of the icon

    easy.

    Go to the ipa file, change the ipa extension to .zip and then open it up, the icons and other files are inside.

    lol that is a good idea. never thought about something so simple.

    oh i tried that but it still shows a black image for the icon. i think it only works for "cracked" apps not legit ones and i have legit.
