    I changed the clock icon with no problems but I can't change the Camera icon.
    I double checked everything (the folder, the names, the resolution).
    Is there a trick for the Camera ?
    (I use Cyberduck)
    iOS 6.1.2, iPhone 5.

    Most people that don't jailbreak won't ever do something like this. Besides the point, you weren't descriptive in the slightest what you've done and has not worked. Can't help you without a place to start

    That seems right. How are you repringing your device.

    Maybe it has something to do with permissions. Check that Owner root, group admin?

    I find that respringing through WinterBoard or Springtomize works best for me. Respringing through NCSettings can be hit or miss.

    Try going in to Winterboard and uncheck the theme, respring.

    Then go back in to Winterboard and recheck the theme, respring.

    That works for me after I replace icons and they don't change.

    Also try deleting the com.apple.IconsCache folder (it recreates itself upon respring).

    Are they the correct resolution? I had this problem once with the mail icon and it turned out to be a resolution issue.

    I don't know but it's easiest to check using iFile. You can just uninstall iFile and its dependencies after you're done if you don't like it
