    How to edit Stack.app icon(the one on Dock)

    I've been searching and i got all of the applications i want and i have the icon customized after i click on it but when its just there on the dock, its that ugly stack of icons. i just want a regular icon. Is that possible? Anybody know how to do it?

    just SSH into your ipod and find stack.app folder. from there just find the icon image that represents the icon on your touch(won't be that hard) and replace it with the one you want. remember to change the name to be the exact same as the old one and change permissions.

    Stack as 1 icon

    I finally figured out how to make the stack appear as 1 icon (assuming all your icons are the same size). Basically I just made them all go to the same (x,y) coordinates on the phone. When you first turn on the phone it will appear as a stack, but after you press it once, it will appear as 1 icon. All you need to do is replace the attached file with the the one in the Stack.app. Also, if you want the reflection look, you can replace the icon.png in Stack with the one of the app (you placed in the 3rd position). I suggest renaming the original file though, not deleting it.

    Remember this is a hack, it would be much better (& look nicer) if the source code was changed, all i did was change the appropriate bits in a hex editor. Enjoy

    I'm not sure what you mean by the line you tweak? do you mean where can you find the bits to edit in a hex editor? All you need to do to get it to work is to download the file (the 2nd one I uploaded) and swap it with the existing one in Stack.app found in the applications folder on you touch. I figured out how to put it in the correct spot. If thats not what your asking, please rephrase the question. Thanks.

    @doudoo: I do know where in the source the code I changed is, it is in the the MobileStack.m file, in the "animator stopAnimation" method. What I did, was change the if statement in the for loop to change all the icons not just ones >=3 and then changed the y coordinate in "endRectOther" to 10f. I did all that in the binary code, as I do not have the toolchain to recompile the code

    i changed the source abit so the stackcontroller got now a installer for the itunes stack style to xD Its abit a messy quick "fix" thing and i hope you dont mind i changed it xD.
    But this is for ppl who likes to have there ipod on a orginal view xD.
    One note you need to place the itunes icon on the last entry. Oh and the mirror reflect is working here to xD (On the itunes style thign only

    ) And all your icons need to be on the same size otherways you see a other icon pulling abit out of the itunes icon.
