    Firstly you'll need to install Winterboard from Cydia. Once that is done, log in via SSH to your iPhone.

    Then go to /private/var/stash/themes########. The # signs represent various numbers and characters. Once in there create a folder called whatever you want. Inside that create a folder called Icons. Then put various App icons in there. Make sure they are named by their actual name i.e. App Store.png; Mail.png, Netflix.png...etc

    so for me it is

    /private/var/stash/themes######/Seth's Theme/Icons

    YOu don't actually touch the apps installed on your phone. You are simply changing the app icon. Which you do by the instructions I've mentioned below.

    So, give me an example of what app icon you have and I'll show you what to do.

    okay so make sure that icon is named Facebook.png. Make sure Winterboard is installed.

    SSH into your phone and go to

    /private/var/stash/themes######/

    create a folder called whtever you want. I name mine 'Seth's Theme'

    Then create a folder inside of that called 'Icons'.

    Put the Facebook.png inside there... So it would be

    /private/var/stash/themes######/Seth's Theme/Icons/Facebook.png

    Go to Winterboard and select 'Seth's Theme'. It will restart Springboard and when loaded back, your Facebook app will have that new icon.

    You can do the above mentioned by Wiid or you can also change the actual FaceBook icon permanently by replacing the original icon with the one you want. You'd need to name to it icon@2x.png and/or icon.png and you'd get the same effect. With Wiid's route you can always revert to the default icon by disabling the theme. Choice is yours really depending on what you're looking to accomplish.

    Are you sure you're on an iPhone 4?

    Try re-sizing it to 59x60
