Changing Icons on Springboard.......??????
Question to all,
Specifically for the iPad, how is everyone changing their icons within a created theme? I an using Winterboard and I was able to change the "default or preloaded" icons like Safari, Mail, iTunes, etc. But any app I downloaded from the app store, the icons dont change. Like I downloaded USA Today app and I want to change the springboard icon for each theme I am creating, how is this done?
I can do it for my phone, but it seems that the iPad does not work the same way. Oh, and for clarity, I have tried the following:
1) Within my theme, I have the 'Icons' folder with the icon images there, for example, I have Safari.app, Mail.app, iTunes.app, etc (all these are .png files of course). I just cant get the App store added apps to change their icons.
2) I added the app's bundle folder to the 'Bundles' folder, for example, I have com.apple.Maps with icon.png file in the folder. Again, this works but not for the App store added apps.
Any help would be great!!

The Winterboard theme you're using should have an icon folder. You need to create png files with exactly the same names as your apps - this includes spacing and caps (eg USA TODAY.png). Place the icon in the theme's icon folder and respiring.
