    I am having problems changing Google Chrome's icon (for IOS, of course). The problem seems to be that there is no known icon file for the app. At least, this is according to AppInfo (an app on Cydia which displays plenty of information about the app you selected). It does display the Bundle Identifier as com.google.chrome.ios, however.

    Anyone know how to change its icon?

    It's pretty fantastic :)
    It's quick, just as its PC/Mac counterpart, and likewise, it has many features. It quickly became my main browser.
    Only complaint is that many features are stuck in one pull-down menu, which makes using the app feel a bit clunky, that is until I get used to it :p

    wow this is very cool! Thanks for the tip! I love chrome. One question: why aren't my current open tabs not showing up? Do I have to restart chrome on my mac?

    Assuming your iPad is jailbroken, head to Cydia and download browser changer. Then go to your settings, find it, then select Chrome.

    On a more relavent note, has anyone figured out how to change Chrome's icon non-summerboard-ly?

    I just had a look at a theme I'm using (ayecon) and it has the icon labelled Icon@2x.png and placed in themename/Bundles/com.google.chrome.ios and it works fine. I'm on 5.1.1.

    Are you using WinterBoard or trying to change it yourself manually?

    I'm trying to use a bundles folder to change it (is this considered winterboard?). I've created a folder named com.google.chrome.ios and I have an Icon@2x.png inside the folder, but the icon refuses to change after respringing.

    Well, after reinstalling the app, it seems to have changed. I must've done something previously to it. Thanks for the help :)
