    Ok, so when I go to rename some of my apps, there are some at the bottom with no picture. So I am like: Whatever, I'll just continue on. So as I did, I tried to rename the app, and it just stayed at its original name! I can rename all of the apps with pictures, but if it doesn't have a picture, then its at the bottom, and if its at the bottom with no picture it won't rename. Anybody got a solution to this?

    chmod -R 777 /Applications/Rename.app

    or

    SSH to the app that you want to change the name of, open the info.plist, and before the </dict></plist>:

    Code:
    <key>UIRoleDisplayName<key>
    <string>Desired Name</string>

    Yeah, for some reason Fring, and to my knowledge, ONLY Fring does that.
    You simply can't rename Fring. :/
