    Can someone PLEASE give a simple guide on how add icons for app store apps to theme like Suave HD, Glaskart HD Black 'UPS HD? I'm tired of having the original apps themed and most of the app store apps mismatched. I know have to some type of renaming and placing the icons in bundle folder, but this is really frustrating.

    I also wasted $5 on iconharvester. It sucks and I deleted it after 30 mins.

    App store icons can be found in var/mobile/applications and Apple iPhone icons can generally be located in var/stash/applications. Themes like Suave/Glasklart/Black UPS have lots of app store icons in them but not for all of them obviously.

    For those themes that don't have custom icons for them, you can either request one from the developer or find one elsewhere and put it in. Nearly all icons will be named icon.png or icon@2x.png in the respective app folder on your phone. If you need to manually swap one of these out, backup the original one first or rename it to something like icon1.png or icon@2xx.png and leave it in there. The new icon you're putting in should match the name of the icon you're replacing. Once done, respring and it should show up.

    well basicly you need to find a few things. You need to find the CFBundleIdentifier so you know what to name the folder within the Bundle's directory in your theme. Say you wanted to Sauve the Skype Icon. Within the Bundles Directory, you'd create a folder with the CFBundleIdentifier and then name the icon the correct name by finding the CFBundleIconFile which is the icon name. for Skype they would be as follows:

    CFBundleIconFile (for HD): ApplicationIcon_57x57@2x.png

    what was said above is 80% true. Most IP4 icons are named icon@2x.png but not all are such as Skype's example. Really once you do it once its very easy after that. You know what your looking for then. if your away from your computer i suggest using iFile but if your at a computer I suggesting using it. I like to use iPhoneBrowser. Just read the link i sent you, figure it out once and you'll be good.
