Hey guys. I'm trying to change the icon for gpsphone. I replaced icon.png and icon@2x.png in ifile and resprang, but it's still the same. I even rebooted and still nothing. Any files I'm missing? Or any other steps I need to do to get the new icon to show up? I HATE winter board btw so I'm not going to use that. I just want to try to do it manually. Thanks!

Hmmm, not sure what to say to you.

A good thing to do might be to re-install gpSPhone, and then manually replace (not delete and then add in) the icons in question. I'm looking in Applications/ and my two icons (icon.png and icon@2x.png) are custom and work fine.

If you use iPhoneBrowser (the best way to customise your phone IMO), you can right-click on the icons in question and "Replace" them. That's what I've done. Other than that, all you can do is reboot and hope the cache clears itself.

Good luck!
