Apologize if this info has been posted before, but I searched and couldn't find it.

After installing Categories, I put several icons in my "Music" folder, but couldn't put SeeqPod in there as it is a WebClip. This little tutorial will show you how to to convert a URL to an application, and have it ACT like an application.

You will need:
1) Erica Sadun's openURL utility on your phone (found in Cydia)
2) and be comfortable with SSH, Putty, etc into your phone

Note: I didn't make this up ALL by myself, I actually used SwapItunes as a template.

Step 1:

Create a shell script that contains the following: (I called mine SeeqPod.sh)

#!/bin/bash
openURL http://www dot seeqpod dot com (or other site)
exit 1

NOTE: Obviously, use the . instead of dot

Step 2:

Create an Info.plist file that contains the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
<string>en</string>
<key>CFBundleExecutable</key>
<string>SeeqPod.sh</string>
<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
<string>com.xxxx.SeeqPod</string>
<key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key>
<string>6.0</string>
<key>CFBundleName</key>
<string>SeeqPod</string>
<key>CFBundlePackageType</key>
<string>APPL</string>
<key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key>
<string>0.9</string>
<key>CFBundleSignature</key>
<string>????</string>
<key>CFBundleVersion</key>
<string>0.9</string>
<key>SBUsesNetwork</key>
<integer>1</integer>
</dict>
</plist>

NOTE: the xxxx above is (I believe) a unique identifier for your application source.

Step 3:

Create a directory on your PC called SeeqPod.app

Step 4:

Place the following files into the SeeqPod.app directory:

SeeqPod.sh
Info.plist (that you created)
icon.png (the icon that you want to use for this app)

Step 5:


SSH/Putty/WinSCP into your phone, and copy the SeeqPod.app directory from your desktop to your phone, under the directory /var/stash/Applications.XxXXX/

Step 6:


Change the permissions of the SeeqPod.sh file to allow execution.

chmod +x SeeqPod.sh

Step 7:

Respring and enjoy


For ONE-TOUCH Dialing ----

I have also used this method to have a "poor man's" one-touch dialing system. In your shell script, instead of openURL http: use "openURL tel://555-555-1212. You will then have an app that, when pressed, will call the number in the script.

Personally, I also "badge" the icon with an H (Home), C (Cell) etc using the following (from the PuTTY command line)

badge CallHome H<enter> (with CallHome being the name of this "app"

To remove the badge if you don't like it, key in

badge CallHome <enter>

NOTE: the badge command is part of Erica Sadun's utilities.

I hope this has been clear. If you are not familiar with SSH, basic *nix commands, you might want to find someone to do this for you.

NOTE: If you do this, it is at your own risk. I take no responsibiltiy, etc, etc, etc. It works great on my phone (8G 1st Gen, 2.0.1, JBroken)
