    Hi,

    i'm french so i have french app that have accents.
    For example, i have not a "Weather" app, but a "Météo" app in the Home screen.
    But in the Applications folder, i have "weather.app".
    Fot the skins, summerboard is looking for the same name that is display in the screen so it is looking for "Météo.PNG".
    But when i am connecting to the touch with sftp client, when i transfer my Météo.PNG, it is renamed to M%F8t%F8o.PNG (for example).
    So Summerbard could not found the icon.

    So it could be great if Summerboard will looking for :
    - name_app.app => name_app.PNG
    - namé_app display at Home screen => name_app.PNG
    - namé_app display at Home screen => nam%F8.PNG

    Try this...

    Try to upload your icons with the original name (without accents) and change the names directly inside you ipod folder with the ftp software.
    I use spanish names with accents and I didn't have any problems with them.
    If it keeps messing up your icons' names, try another ftp software.
    I use cyberduck for mac and it works like a charm.
    Bon courage!

    Ok thank you.
    I have tried with WinSCP and it doesn't like accents.
    I tried with Tunnelier, and it doesn't worked too.
    i will test on my macbook later.

    Météo.png is always renammed as M%E9t%E9o.png

    got the same problem, can't change settings icon (called Réglages) or weather (Météo) and videos (Clips Vidéos).
    Tried with CuteFTP and winscp and it doesn't work.

    Do you know where i can change the app's name? like Météo in Meteo ??

    Thank you.

    There is still a 'temporary' solution if you always use the same theme : change directly the default icon in the folder of the application (not in summerboard's themes i mean). As their names are icon.png, it works, but you will have those new icons each time the theme you use doesn't have its own icon for the apps...
