    UPDATE-SOLVED
    The permissions for MobileMusicPlayer.app set up incorrectly. Fixing that along with fixing applicationstate.plist and com.apple.mobileinstallation.plist did the trick. Thanks for the suggestions.

    ---------------------------------------------
    Running 4.3.3 on 3GS, was messing aroun with icons and decided to change my iPod icon manually (no winterboard installed). I renamed the old icon to back it up and then dropped in my new icon-MediaPlayer.png into the MobileMusicPlayer. After respring, the iPod icon is gone/doesn't show up on Springboard. I went back and deleted the new icon and renamed the old I icon to icon-MediaPlayer.png. After respring, still no luck.

    Anyone have any ideas what I need to do to fix this? I didn't backup info.plist before doing this and wondered if that's where I went wrong.

    PLEASE, any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Follow up question

    I tried switching up the </true> and </false> values for the unified-ipod keys (the first two, the other two look like they're for iPad) in info.plist in the MobileMusicplayer.app folder as well as the N88AP.plist (N##AP.plist) in the Springboard.app folder. I was hoping this would at least show the audio and video player icons but no luck after respring. Am I missing another .plist somewhere or could this signify that some other package might be responsible (EnhancedFolders for example)?

    I also noticed that the iPod app wasn't showing up in other apps that use installd to show installed apps (Auto3G white list). Should it show up as a installed app but with a missing icon or not show up at all?

    Update

    So it looks like I switched from a unified media player to audio and video players. The icons aren't showing up on the springboard but they do appear under settings. I didn't change the Audio and Video icons in any way yet they aren't appearing either.

    I also noticed that I could go through SBSettings and into the Dock settings and add the iPod to the dock (the entry is there with the correct icon). However, once added to the SBSettings dock, pulling up the dock shows no iPod icon.

    Update 2

    Just noticed that if I have just the iPod toggled on in SBSettings dock prefs vs none toggled on, there's a space in the dock that I can tap and the SBSettings pane animates to zoom away and open the iPod app except the iPod app doesn't start. If I don't have any apps added to the SBSettings app dock, then no matter where I tap on the SBSettings dock, nothing happens. SBSettings is accessing something from the AppList Cydia app.


    Also removed some obvious tweaks although I haven't tried removing either the AppList Cydia app or iFile.

    Also tried using Winterboard to use a theme with a custom iPod icon and that didn't work nor did uninstalling the theme or Winterboard.

    Any ideas?

    Another Question

    Can anyone please tell me if they have com.apple.mobileipod-MediaPlayer somewhere under the iconLists arrays in the N##AP.plist file in the SpringBoard.app folder?

    question

    So I'm starting to think that I must have incorrectly named my replacement icon-MediaPlayer.png icon when I first tried changing it. Can anyone please tell me what would happen in this case after a respiring/reboot? What would the OS do in this case, alter a plist or something?

    Update...Progress

    So I think I know what happened.

    Somehow the MobilemusicPlayer was uninstalled (maybe from mispelled icon name?) from Springboard. I'm pretty sure my MobileMusicPlayer.app hasn't been corrupted, the directory/files all appear to be in tact. At the least, it wasn't deleted.

    I noticed that in /var/mobile/library/Springboard/applicationstate.plist that the dictionary value for the com.apple.mobileipod-mediaplayer has "_SBUninstalledDate Jul 6, 2011 2:04:43 PM".

    Also there is no com.apple.mobileipod entry in com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.

    Since I still have the MobileMusicPlayer.app shouldn't there be a way to reinstall?

    Back up packages, restore to factory settings, re-jailbreak, restore packages.

    MobileInstallation.log

    /var/mobile/Library/Logs/MobileInstallation/ contains logs of installs.

    I have almost everything fixed but on reboot, this is being written to the log:


    [*]Fri Jul *8 00:28:12 2011 pid=229 (0x2fef6000) : Can't stat /Applications/MobileMusicPlayer.app/Settings.bundle: Permission denied

    Divinearoma, I renamed the same icon-MediaPlayer,png file by mistake and lost iPod and Videos. I checked my applicationstate.plist file and also saw _SBUninstalledDate.

    Can you please let me know what steps you took to fix the problem?

    Removing the SBUninstalledDate entry doesn't seem to work.

    Any help will be appreciated.



    Thanks in advance.

    Borregod

    Check the permissions for the MobileMusicPlayer.app directory. They should e set to
    User: read, write, execute
    Group: read, write, execute
    world: read, execute

    Let me know if that doesn't work.

    Thanks for the reply Divinearoma.

    I checked MobileMusicPlayer.app and the permissions look right.

    Owner: root
    Group: admin
    User: read, write, execute
    Group: read, write, execute
    world: read, execute

    Everytime I try editing out the SBUninstalledDate entries they keep coming back.
    Let me know what else I can try. Thanks again for the quick reply and help.

    Try looking up the install logs in /var/mobile/Library/Logs/MobileInstallation/. Find the one for the date/time where the issue arose and it should note why the OS cant get the app running correctly.

    Ignore the applicationstate.plist and the SBUninstalledDate entry, the issue lies elsewhere. Try copying and pasting what you find in the install logs.

    Installation logs

    Try finding log messages that display something unsual, you might have to scan multiple log files. Also you can try removing the SBuninstall value for MobileMusicPlayer.app under the applicationstate.plist and then reboot your phone. Once it's rebooted, check the most recent installation log entries.
