    Hello Gurus,

    I had a question, I am not sure if this is possible or not, but I am sure you will advise me :)

    If I have the .ipa files of a game or an application, is it possible to extract the graphics from them? So for example if I have a game, and I want to extract the graphics from the game and modify it or just view it, how do I go on about doing that?

    I tried right clicking the ipa file and clicking "Show package contents", it showed me a lot of files, most of them are .png files which do not contain the core graphics used by the game, such as the characters and trees and birds,etc.

    I found some pretty huge files but they are not image files (over 20MB). I am thinking those contain graphics but is it possible to see their content? They have a weird extension, like .asset and I can't figure out for the life of me what to do with them!

    I appreciate your help guys, I am new to the Mac world and I'm loving it so far :)

    Thanks!

    You can't view images vie the IPA file but you can SSH (or use iFile) into your phone (assuming you're jailbroken) and see everything that makes up the app.
