Hey people! Please help me out here!
I have several questions..

Themes usually have app icons that come together with them, but...

1. there are some icons that I would like to change. How can I go about doing this? I have WinSCP & DiskAid downloaded, but I have no idea how I can change the app icons.

2. some themes do not have icons for certain apps. Is there any way I can 'create' an icon for that app in that theme?

3. Where would be a good site to get app icons?

Thank you!! :D

ThemeIconMaker is what you want! It's an amazing tweak! It scans whatever Winterboard theme you are using, determines which icons are not themed, and then somehow creates an icon for the non-themed icons based on what the other themed icons look like! Try it out.

If you want to make your own, custom icons, the icon files are located in var/stash/themes/"themename"/bundles/"whicheverapp". The icon file is of the form icon@2x.png.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but since it's related (app icon changing), I'd just ask anyway. Some icons are not just squares with rounded corners, so there's a stupid background behind. I've tried multiple times to remove them using WinterBoard, but those attempts were futile. The icons will either remain the same, or they can literally turn invisible. Is there a proper way to remove them? I assume that those methods on iOS 4 are rendered obsolete on iOS 5.
