I have the same problem with a few apps using the bundle method. Triple checked the bundle and icons and even copied the icon to all versions, still never replaced it. howver if it's the vlc app from appdium, I do have that working. It's icon for 3GS is MVLCIcon_57, bundle ID is com.applidium.vlc, pretty sure the 2x is name is MVLCIcon_114If you don't like it, MOD IT!

Use icon harvester. It will apply the mobileiconbundle to Cydia apps. Or, if you are looking for a custom icon you can: a) replace the original icon in the app folder or b) use the bundle method. Things to check if the bundle method is not working: make sure the bundle folder has the same name as the CF entry un the .plist. Make sure the bundle folder has all the same icon files as the application. Some apps use strange names instead of icon and icon@2x. There are many VLC's but I use the Cydia one which uses MVLCIcon_57.png, 72, and 114. So those 3 names are what you need to use in you themes bundle folder. oh, and change your plist file back to the original.
