    Hey, Is there an easier way to grab all the app's on my phone's icon art? I'm looking to do a custom theme for my phone, and I managed to find the folder where the jailbroken application's (as well as apple apps) are kept with their icons, but the app store applications aren't there, so I can't find their icon.png

    any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I'm new at this too, but from my messing around with mine earlier, I think if you DON'T put an icon in the Icons folder, it'll use Apple's default icon.

    ETA: I just re-read your question and I don't think I answered your question, I'm sorry :p I thought you meant, in a particular theme you didn't see the Apple app icons. So ignore my answer then! :D

    That's not even remotely similar to what he asked for.

    Do people even read the questions here or what?

    He wants to be able to to get at the icons from, for example, iDracula or Melodica, which are applications downloaded from the Apple Store, to use them in his theme.

    /var/mobile/Applications/

    You have to go through all the subfolders named with the long number-letter combinations to find the app you are looking for.

    Get Applinks from Cydia. It will link the folders that the apps are in to a folder named after the app. So instead of gibberish folders in ~/Applications, you will have folders named iDracula.app and Melodica.app in /Applinks.

    It seems to only work for the apps in /var/mobile/Applications and not the apps in /Applications though.

    Apps usually name their icon "Icon.png" but some don't. If you can't find the icon, you can open Info.plist and look for a line like this that names the png file used for the icon:

    Code:
    <key>CFBundleIconFile</key>
    <string>icon.png</string>

    It's an unfortunate side effect of this artificially-induced ADHD society :)
