    Default Problem changing icon.
    The icon I'm currently trying to alter is AVPlayerHD.
    The theme I've got is boss.ipad SD (ipad2)
    I'm on iOS 5.0.1

    Basically I've tried placing the files in the folder part in AVPlayerHD.app (file names are correct) it does change the icon but puts the overlay on it (the icon has a wire that is meant to come out so I don't want the overlay)

    Next tried the bundles version.
    New folder named AVPlayerHD.eplayworks.com
    Both files put in there. Again it applies the overlay that I don't want but the icon does change.

    The 3rd way works but the icon is huge!
    Make a folder called icons in the main theme folder. Place the files renamed to AVPlayerHD.png and [email protected].
    Icon works with no overlay but as I stated its huge.

    Can anyone offer advice on how to change this icon so I don't get the overlay or it's a normal size (for the 3rd way)?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I had a similar issue with one app
    so I still used the 3rd method like you talked about... same problem HUGE icon

    so I uploaded my icon to photobucket and used the ADVANCED (not the express editor). Changed the pixel size down from like 240 x 240 (huge) to 120 x120 (normal size) then resaved it as a png and put it back in there and its been perfect... any other program like Paint or photoshop or anything would work to do this (I just wasn't using my own computer at the time so photobucket did the trick).

    The icon is 120x120. That was my first thought so I can't understand why it's doing it. I've just tried theming my app store the 3rd way and it's the same.png size is 120x120 but the icon is huge.

    It doesn't seem to be able to resize the .pngs correctly using the 3rd method.

    I'm probably going to sit on the pc tonight and resize all the AppStore app icons as those are the ones affected.
    If I remember rightly 72x72 is the resized size, so that'll be last resort.

    Thank you for trying to help its appreciated.
