    Please help. I've searched everywhere and cannot find the solution.
    I installed a theme and most of my icons changed except a few. No problem - I just placed the missing icons in the correct themes folder through SSH. Problem is, the icons did not change (all ten that I individually changed). I'm sure I got at least some of the names right but not even one has worked.
    I've tried deleting the two icon caches, respringing, rebooting, reinstalling theme but nothing has worked.

    This may help...
    Try navigating to your applications folder (Cydia apps = /Applications, App Store = /var/mobile/Applications) with iFile or SSH and find the info.plist file for the app you want to change, find the following:

    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <string>*app name*</string>

    and copy the name between the string tags, then paste it as the icon name.

    The app name in the string was already the same as the icon. I tried changing it to something else but it still didn't work. Thanks anyways......

    You're welcome. A last resort could be to just replace the icon.png in the individual folders of the apps with the ones you want.

    go to var/mobile/Library/Caches
    delete folders 'SpringboardIconCache' and 'SpringboardIconCache - small'
    Respring
    That should do it..
