    I am currently using iexplorer to change the icon of my apps. I followed the instruction of the tutorial below to the letter and yet no matter how many time I reboot I still get the same old icons. Any help please?



    Note: I didn't jailbreak my phone and am not intend on doing it. Also, I'm using iphone 4 with ios 6

    havent been able to see the video you posted (utube is blocked at my office) but as far as my understanding goes, changing icons are only available if ur device is jailbroken...

    Are you sure there is no getting around that? I have to download a bunch of stuff to jailbreak and my connection is slow as hell.

    If you're looking for customizing, iOS isn't the right OS.

    Apple doesn't encourage jail breaking. I would not do anything apple tells me to not do. Hail Apple.

    Let me change my Ringtone now. Just 5 mins of work. :)

    Nope, it was definitely possible under iOS 5 without jailbreaking - I did it myself to replace some non-retina icons with retina versions I made.

    I haven't had time to test iOS6 yet.

    THAT was bragging about how awesome and good-looking JB'ing customizations are? Yikes!

    Why are you rebooting so much?

    He's not rebooting because there is something wrong with the phone. When JBing, when you make a systems change you have to respring the phone, respringing is like a soft reboot as opposed to turnign the phone off and on, but since he isn't JBen the only thing he can do is a full reboot.

    Yup, every time I'm tempted to do so I take a look at the awesome JB screens...and by "awesome" I mean it looks like someone at the worst UI's ever and vomited them onto the phone.
