    This is just a tutorial for people who dont know how to get custom icons on their 2.0

    EDIT: for the weather icon, go here /System/Library/Coreservices/Springboard/SBWeatherCelsius.png
    ^^ thanks minimaclean

    Firstly: download OpenSSH on Cydia.
    2nd: Log into SSH using cyberduck/winSCP or your favourite SFTP client.
    3rd:To Change applications that came with the iPod touch (like app store, mobile msuic player) locate to /applications.For Applications bought from the appstore, locate into var/mobile/applications, open one of the random coded apps and there will be a folder saying the app name

    5th:Get an icon, and change the name to icon.png
    Note: for mobile music player.app. the icon.png must be changed to icon-AudioPlayer.png/icon-VideoPlayer.png. for iPhone users: icon-MediaPlayer.png and also mobileslideshow.app has to icon.png. they are icon-Camera.png and icon-Photos.png
    6th:Get your icon.png and replace the default one.
    do this for every application. Same with the appstore apps, and your icons should appear,download repring from cydia, for the result to happen

    EDIT:attached the icons
    EDIT:CHANGING THE APPSTORE APPS ICON.PNG HAS A CHANCE OF NOT OPENING OR OPENING IT. IT IS REALLY A 50/50 CHANCE OF IT OPENING.
    EDIT: i have includedthe info.plist for merging music and video into iPod

    by the way. DONT TRY CHANGING THE ICONS TO APPS LIKE SMB OR TAP TAP. IT WILL MAKE THE APP UNABLE TO OPEN. AND U WILL HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE APP, LOSING ALL YOUR DATA

    To change the Photos icon you have to change to the name to icon-Photos.png not just icon.png or it won't work.

    with summerboard you should be able to change appstore app icons right? since it doesnt change the icon and it only patches the springboard
