    Here is a small snapshot of how my iPhone now handles Installer. Of coarse its a modded version of Installer. (switched the icons)

    A Tutorial on how to accomplish this is available in a below post. I am not responsible for any damage, you do this at your own risk; However, there is nothing wrong with mine or my firend's

    How about you just post the simple and easy to follow tutorial? That way when a person needs it, they don't have to ask and wait for you to respond. Logic!

    Yeah, I could do that, but what's the point if I see no one is interested? When I see some people interested I will, cause I know people really want to, but in the meantime why?

    OK, so here is the guide.

    This guide assumes you have computer knowledge on file systems in the iPhone and basic computer skills
    So to start of you need 3 things...
    I. Jailbroken iPhone (duh)
    II. iBrickr (any version - I used version .91)
    III. App Store Icon (found as an Attachment at the end of this post)

    Step 1
    - Connect iPhone to computer (Mac or PC) and open iBrickr and connect to iPhone.

    Step 2
    - Once in iBrickr select 'Files', and you will then see a fake iPhone appear on the right.

    Step 3
    A
    - In the fake iPhone you will see all the different folders of the iPhone. Look and select Applications.
    B
    - Once in the application folder, search for Installer.app and select it.

    Step 4
    - Now you are in the files Installer uses to do it's magic. However, in order to change the icon we must change one and only one file.

    Step 5
    A
    - Search and select for the file called icon.png
    B
    - Download it using iBrickr (this is for back-up issues)

    Step 6
    - Now to continue you have to have the App Store icon with you. If not, I put in this guide for you. If so, let's continue and rename the App Store icon image to icon.png

    Step 7
    - The following steps are the "hardest" to speak, but in reality thanks to iBrickr are very easy.
    A
    - First, delete the icon.png from Installer in the iPhone. Yes yes to whatever message iBrickr tells you of permanently deleting your file.
    B
    - Now, to upload your App Store icon. You are still in the files of Installer, so click the Upload file button in iBrickr and select your App Store icon which MUST be under the name of icon.png.

    Step 8
    - Ok, so we are done to a 99.9999%. To finish, RESTART your iPhone, not the springboard.

    Step 9
    - Enjoy!!

    y cant u just use SMBpref and put the new icon in a theme?:confused:


    -----
    infact, thats like 10X easier. if you have summerboard installed, just rename the attachment to "Installer.png" and put it inside any theme using SSH, and restard springboard.

    Cause I don't know how to make a theme for SummerBoard, yet. Also, SSH is the same as iBrickr. Only thing I am much more familiar to iBrickr

    Hey that's actually a good idea!

    Someone should make a theme that has the new Calculator icon, new iTunes icon, and the App Store icon.


    Anyone up for the task? It could be called like 2.0

    If someone has the icons, I can make the theme and maybe get it on the MMi source...

    First of all - I had no idea I could use iBrikr to access the iPhone file system!

    Thats something that I found out for the first time today!

    I changed the icons on both my iPhones and it looks much cooler!

    Thanks.

    This is awesome,
    Thanks!

    Looks way better than the original icon,

    They should change it officially to this!

    Calculator and iTunes Icons

    I have the Calculator and iTunes icons, if only someone could put together a summerboard theme with all three... :D

    P.S. - Make sure to rename both icons as "icon.png"
