    Does anyone know if it's possible to change the iBlackList status bar icons to something else? I little icon of a telephone receiver and a little icon of a message bubble look fairly suspicious. How about (for example) a modified bluetooth icon or an alarm clock icon, or letting the user pick from a list of icons.

    I searched the file system and can't seem to find where the icon graphics are located.

    You should contact the iblacklist team. I've always found them to be very responsive to inquiries.

    Found the solution... This is from their support team:

    You can change to whatever icon you might have there. The software accept the changes with no problems. In cydia, you can even check the iBlacklist package contents to see the icons location and name. They are in the UIKit.framework folder.

    Changed SMS bubble to a bluetooth icon. Works great.

    Email me if you want the icon for use with retina display.

    For retina, the SMS icon is Black_SMSBL@2x.png for the "black" status bar.

    For non-retina display you could still use it but you will have to scale it to half size and save it as a different name (drop the @2x)

    The icon is a Bluetooth icon that looks just like the iPhone Bluetooth icon only slightly brighter.
