    Hey guys, having an issue with changing the iProtect icon to my custom theme. Here are the steps I've taken:

    1) Created a folder by the bundle identifier in my themes folder
    2) CONFIRMED the bundle identifier and icon names are correct
    3) Cleared the icon cache
    4) Moved the theme up and down and all over in Winterboard and resprung multiple times
    5) Deleted other custom icon folders and re-uploaded them, and they have changed back to the original icon and themed icon without issues
    6) Confirmed SummerBoard Mode is ON
    7) Deleted the icon folder via SSH and re-uploaded, same result

    I'm now at a total loss. Any help would be appreciated!

    If this is an iphone 4 did you add @2x at the end of the file name before the .png?
    Sometimes icon.png uses a capital I.
    Sometimes they use a ~ in the name.

    Yes I did. I checked out the Info.plist for it and it has icon@2x.png as the primary icon file name then icon.png next down. I know that icon.png is for non-retina devices. So now I actually have four icons in the folder, just in case, as icon.png, icon@2x.png, Icon.png, and Icon@2x.png

    Still nada...

    Have you tried

    YourTheme/Icons/YourIcon.png instead of going the bundle route? That's how I theme mine.

    I will try that next...

    How do you theme your whole phone that way? Wouldn't you have constant overlap in filenames?

    That path is only for application icons, nothing else.

    OK so I'm not naming icons in that folder Icon@2x.png like a lot of other ones, I'm naming it after the app? ie. In my case, iProtect.png

    Got it working finally! For some weird reason, the icon name was not the typical Icon@2x , it was Icon-Small@2x , the last of six possible icon names. I had tried earlier to name the icon this but I think the size of the icon was off, so I made sure now all were 114x114 and reuploaded and it worked. Thanks for your help, I'm sure your method would have worked as well.
