I'm hoping the good readers of ModMyi can lend a hand..
I've recently installed Week Cal (a must have if you utilize your calendars like I do) and I am trying to get the icon to behave in the same fashion as the native Calendar icon.
What i've done -
1. Hidden the native Calendar icon.
2. Edited the info.pblist Display Name call to "Calendar"
3. Added the following bolded string to the info.pblist:
(I've included the strings that live around the call in italics for placement reference)
The name changed accordingly but the dynamic icon call didn't do anything. I haven't moved the application from the /var/mobile/applications folder. Does it make a difference? Does it have to be in the native application folder (var/stash/applications..)? I tried copying it over using iFile but it said the folder and files already exist. I tried copying it, removing it and re-pasting it but that didn't work either. TBH i'm not even sure if thats necessary.
Hope someone can help..
Anyone? C'mon, don't be shy.

I'm not sure. The native icon calls live within the plist for apps. I hope someone can help me here, it would definitely be appreciated and i'm sure something other people would love to do as well.

A little kick...
I''ve been searching for this too and found a different solution. In stead of completely changing the WeekCal icon, there's also a tweak in Cydia called 'openother'. It's actually intended as a practical joke app, cause it lets you start an app by clicking another app, but its perfectly helpfull here. Just install it and hold an icon to go into icon changing mode, double tap your official Calendar icon, then double tap your Weekcal icon and you're all done.
