Hi, I'm using foldericons from Cydia. It looks great having icons instead of the default folders, makes the springboard look so much neater and easier to find my apps :)
Anyway, this only has a limited amount of icons available and are missing some obvious ones like : music, photos, sport, fitness, tv etc,
It says within the tweak you can use custom icons but I'm Not sure where to begin doing that. Is there another package available with a load of Retina icons to use with foldericons??

Thanks for any help

Or what do I need to make my own? I read in a similar thread about foldericons about putting your custom icons in an extension... Something like /icons/media/foldericons ...that's probably not the correct extension, but anyway, where would I find that extension? Do I need iFile? And is there a programme to install on my mac to make retina icons?? Cheers guys

Ok, so I have got icon maker and iFile now..
I've had A quick mess around creating an app icon skin & saved it to camera roll. Then set to it to open in iFile and the file is there...
But where do you put it?

The tweak 'foldericons' I am using isn't in my general setting list.. And I can't see that in iFile..
Any ideas?

My thought would be this...
Create icon
Save to foldericons images folder
Then when I hold down on the folder on my springboard (it has an extra setting tab now which you use to change icons) click that then my new image should be in that list with the default images?

----------

Also, I've watched the idownloadblog video for foldericons and when he clicks settings it has foldericons folder settings there!?! Why hasn't mine got that? It's not in settings at all like my other tweaks.



Update 6000 - I've found the folder it needs to be in, in iFile and got my image with the rest..
However....
Back on my springboard when I load the foldericons my new image isn't there ?? :( help me?

Yup, tried that - full power off aswel.

Like i say, in iFile, user/media/foldericons the new images are there but not showing when I go back to my springboard and select the folder to edit..
